Bought this for my dad for Christmas as a joke. Only paid about 15 for it (including P&P). Having built my fair share of Lego in 90s as a kid I have to say, I'm not sure why people complain about the instructions. I glanced through the booklet, and my dad had no issue building it (although admittedly, the pieces themselves did appear to almost be randomly bagged).
The conveyor belt doesn't seem to move, or if it does it will break. However, the structure itself is quite solid. I'm not sure how it holds up compared to modern Lego stuff, but it's far better than the things I used to build out of the box (space ships, underwater places, they were all fragile despite following the instructions).
I can't say how useful it would be for a child, but for anyone looking for a display piece it's nice.
