I must first point out that the actual product differs slightly from the picture here, for some reason. I don't recognise the pink pot, the tools are not coloured in such detail (just a silvery paint) and the toy train doesn't look like that. In fact, it's bigger, and looks more like it represents a chunky plastic toy than a wooden one. There are lots of lovely accessories with this set, pretty much everything a toymaker needs. Some stickers are small and fiddly, and may need adult help. Others small children can stick on themselves. Uncle Mulberry can't hold his larger tools, which is a shame, but he can hold his pens and pencils. My favourite part of this is the dolls' house. It can be finished, with the roof on, or when the roof is off it fits neatly into Uncle Mulberry's hand. He also sits surprisingly well on the stool, given his tail, but actually I think it helps him balance. Position him right and he won't fall off the stool whilst on display.

This toy is great, the character is well made, and there are plenty of cute accessories.
BUT, I'm a little disapointed that the figurine cannot hold the most of objects and there are not so detailed as shown on the picture.
