Rated 4 out of 5Â by LoriPeace 7-year-old loves it
This stand wasn't difficult to assemble, but a little tricky -- my husband's good at this kind of thing, and it still took him a while. He concluded it was easier to assemble the main part upside down, then turn it over to attach the top part. My 7-year-old daughter, who loves playing store, has stocked it with her toys to "sell" to me over and over, and she's only had it a week! Right now she's using the counter space to color pictures with a friend. When I saw the name Melissa and Doug on the box, I knew this gift would be a sturdy, high-quality toy. We've gotten a number of other things from them in the past, and have always been satisfied.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Walter White side shelf alignment issues
Santa bought this for my daughter. Step #2 - Side White shelve holes for screw "barrel nuts" are drilled too deep. When putting together take small chunks of Styrofoam from packing and stuff in hole, then insert the "barrel nut". This will allow you to hold pressure with phillips/straight head head screw driver bit to align the screw and get it into the barrel nut. Hope this helps people in assembly. Hopefully "Melissa & Doug" will fix this in production. Other than that daughter is excited and waiting for daddy to finish assembly. Have fun & Merry Christmas. Walter S. Kessler - Chemical Process Engineer/Process Safety Specialist & "Jack of All Trades" - can fix almost anything.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Stay at home mom Fantastic Store!
I am a stay at home mom and was in education prior. This item provides a ton of entertainment to my 2.5 year old daughter and I am sure for my son in the future. It is perfect for all ages. The only issue is that you have to buy all the food to put in it and a cash register so while the store is reasonable in price it can get pricey to fill it. Great for pretend play and if you have a kitchen- great way to go shopping to "cook".
Rated 5 out of 5Â by MORMOM LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THIS ITEM! Got this for my 2 granddaughters (ages 6-years and 20-months). They both love it (and so do all friends children of all ages). Great for group and interactive play with both kids and adults. The 6-year old can easily change awning from grocery store to lemonaid stand and back. The 2o-month old can easily add and remove the bins and the chalkboards for the bins.
