Fantastic toy, I was looking for a good sturdy garage but came across this on Amazon and am absolutely delighted with it. It is sturdy, well put together and thought out and it's the only toy my 2 year old has ever played on for 2 hours in one day! It also doubles up as a table which is handy, and you can just put the cars in and shut the lid.

This is a great toy which more than one child can enjoy at the same time. With the lid on, it can be used as a small table for light activities ie drawing. It is quite a large toy and would be difficult to store away. However, the lid protects the toy and a few light items could be stored on top.

This toy would have been great for my son to play with, unfortunately despite paying Amazon for a courier service it did not arrive on the scheduled day. Forced to cancel order on Amazon, despite this they still tried to deliver 3 days later.
Ordered toy from Tesco, who delivered it to a 2 hour evening time slot, which did not force me to take time of work again.
In summary the toy is great, but the Amazon delivery service is poor, they could not get hold of the subcontract carrier to establish where the goods were. My recommendation is to go elsewhere unless you are at home most of the week, then you can wait for the next day courier service to deliver sometime of their choosing in the following week.
Realise Amazon are at the mercy of their sub-contractors here, maybe they want to think about changing them if this is the normal level of service.

The only problem is that i find it difficult to get my son away from this toy. He enjoys playing with it although he is 18 months old and the suggested age starts with 3 years. Kids aged 4,5 and 6 also found it very interesting
It will take around half an hour to set it up (place the stickers in the right place, and the screws on the table legs). You will find it hard to place the screws on the toy's legs, unless you have an electric drill
