I purchased as a gift for someone and wanted to complete it before I gave it to her. IT was really simple to piece together, though that giant coke bottle was the LAST to be put together. It was the most difficult section by far. It took about 3 hours with two people but still a lot of fun. Beautiful colors and good quality cardboard.
We love all of the wooden Melissa & Doug puzzles and we have a lot of them. Great sized pieces for little hands with bright colors and easy to store as well. Would recommend for all children; great to keep those little hands and minds busy!
