This is the third American Plastics toy my two year daughter has received. We love them all and have a kitchen ready and waiting for Christmas! You can't beat the price. They aren't meant to last years and years like other bigger brands but thats why they cost so much less. If you have lots of kids, by all means, buy a bigger brand, but if you have one like we do, you can't go wrong with these. The tool set seems to be the second easiest to assemble (shopping cart is the easiest). It took me 45 minutes one afternoon. My husband was at work or it probably would have took him less time. I used nail clippers to clip off sharp edges and had to file away a few, especially on the gears and Phillips bit. I had a little bit of trouble getting the screws to go in straight, but my husband would tell you, I can't use a screwdriver. This one is nice and sturdy, its thicker plastic than, say, the nursery but that means, to me, that it can stand up to some rough play. I love the drawers and the sliding doors, not to mention the peg board like Mom and Dad have in the garage. My daughter LOVES it. Anytime my husband and I get out a tool (we're restoring a house, so that happens on an everyday basis) she runs right into her room and gets out the same tool and comes and 'helps.' I think it will last her until she grows out of it. The only down side I can see is that it may not be comparable with other play tool sets, but then again, it may be, we just got it and haven't expanded our toy tool collection yet.
