So far, it has done remarkably well.

The cars dont run smoothly down the tracks - and the elevator bit it almost impossible to get up and down and get the car out to go anywhere.

I'm thankful that my 4-year-old grandson was not old enough to recognize the shoddy materials with which this playset was built. The plastic reminded me of the cheap stuff from which carnival prizes are made! It was thin and flimsy, causing us to hold our breath during the set up. The playset does have kid appeal. But within a few minutes of play, my grandson had broken the bottom barrier that prevented the cars from flying off the last ramp and crashing onto the floor. Within the next 10 minutes, the flimsy elevator operated by a flimsy string attached to a flimsy crank handle was getting stuck on its trips up and down the shaft. And then came the string going off the crank and winding elsewhere. Oh, my.
My grandson's patience was just beginning to wear thin when he discovered that not all of his cars worked on this play set,only Matchbox cars. I suspect that he's not the only little boy who pays no attention to what brand his cars are...they're all just cars to him. It was difficult to figure out which cars would work and which wouldn't.
Before I close, I must ask the toy designer WHY there is a blue torpedo-type object that is supposed to (it also broke!) shoot out, at a child's eye level,when a car completes the course. Try as I might, I couldn't think of one instance where a fire station might need blue spears shooting off their property.
I would not recommend this playset for anyone! I have learned two lessons: stick with proven products, as thosefrom Fisher Price, and never have gifts sent to their destination so that you're unable to "preview" them before they are presented.

It doesn't show in any of the photos, but this is NOT a free-standing toy. It is meant to clip to a table or chair. It's flimsy and real easy for a toddler to disassemble and break.

I bought this for my 3 year old son, and it's been a huge hit. He uses it on a tabletop, in it's folded state, as he likes to turn it around so he can access different sides. When it's attached to a table it's not as easy to get to the back side. The elevator works well for the most part, but can be finicky at times.

The main issue with this toy is the curved ramp. Larger cars will often get stuck about half way down because the curve is too tight. Average size cars work fine, it's just the largest that have a problem. If your kiddo's favorite car is larger than normal, you may want to look at another play set.

I'm not sure why there's a "gun" on this toy. It's modeled after a water hose, but just seems like an odd addition to me. Not every toy needs to shoot something.

I didnt realize this was a Matchbox product VS Hotwheels -nor did I expect such a difference. My older boys had all the HOT WHEELS CITY when they were younger - I was looking for those pieces - but found this, looked good.

The cars dont run smoothly down the tracks - and the elevator bit it almost impossible to get up and down and get the car out to go anywhere. The claw also doesn't do much either - seem like it should be hooked to a helicopter or something.

The shooting water dart was the only fun part - if you can get the cars to roll all the way down the ramp.

We are having more fun with the big bag of hotwheel tracks making our own race courses.

My headline says it all: After five minutes of play this toy would be in pieces. It's just not tough enough for children. The picture is misleading. It seems to depict the toy on the floor. Actually it must be attached to something such as a table. Otherwise, you don't get the two-story effect. The assembly instructions that go along with the toy are bizarre. It took an hour just to figure them out. Whoever thought this one out needs to go back to the drawing board and rethink the concept. Sorry to be so negative, but this is not a good toy.

Totally my fault, but I didn't notice before ordering it how this thing connects to a table ledge. The connection point is a little wiggly, and the overall build quality is average at best. I don't like how the truck often doesn't make it all the way to the bottom of the ramp. The elevator thing often gets stuck in the shaft.

But my son loves it, despite its faults. He can't really do much with it on his own, but he'll grow into it, I guess. I probably wouldn't buy it again, but if my son heard me say that, he'd cry. That's okay, I think Santa gave it to him, anyway.

First let me say that the directions to assemble this product were less then helpful. There are parts of the set up that aren't even listed on the directions. There is screw thing, that I am assuming should be used to clamp the unit to a table, but no directions on if that is what it is suppose to do. There is a basement level that does not snap into place either down or collapsed. The crane to operate the elevator is easily ripped out or the cord knots up on itself. Needless to say it was not my son nor my favorite Christmas present.
