A little rickety - disappointed
on 10 January 2011
Once constructed, this farm does indeed look as good as it does in the manufacturer's images and on the box. HOWEVER,the two base boards that form the farmyard itself do not join together in any way, and can slip on the surface on which you place them. In addition, the farm buildings etc. then slip and slide on the farm surface when placed on top. The fences are not weighted or made non-slip in any way so they tip over constantly, and the ladder slides away from the top window of the barn for the same reason. My daughter loves playing with the animals we bought with the farm, but the farm itself is not good value for money. A little bit of extra thought on the part of the manufacturer could have improved this farm set dramatically: some little felt non-slip pads on the bases of the buildings, or the two base boards cut to fit like two large jigsaw pieces. Looks good, but not terribly functional or durable...
