We recently ordered this for my son's birthday. I remember playing with Ertl when I was a kid- it brought back so many happy memories! I was expecting the Barn to come put together, so that was a little disapointing but not enought to make it not worth it. I would say just be careful and maybe have an adult snap the pieces into place. My son was really exited and wanted to help and was trying to just shove everything together, so we stepped in. I could see how it maybe easy for a locking part to just snap if you let a child (or for that matter an impatient adult) attempt building.
The only real negitive thing that I could see is that the roof "vents" (the 2 little chimney things on top) do not snap into place. they just sit there so they tent to topple off if your little one bumps it or tries to get the cows into the barn door. Also if you purchase the farm house too be sure to place the window shutter stickers BEFORE you put the house together.... it was a pain trying to put them on after because of the wrap around porch and over hang. We can't wait to expand the set!

Cheap and flimsy....
By Wise Mama
I wouldn't waste your money. It's way overpriced for the cheap quality. Ertl should be embarrassed. I plan to invest in a nice barn eventually but wanted to get my 5 year old something for now. Do not expect this to hold up unless you super glue it like we plan to. Honestly it will fall right apart. It's a shame you can't get a hold of good quality farm toys anymore. Looks like it's yard sales and ebay for now....
