My son got the construction vehicles version of this set a while ago and we have lots of fun playing with them. When I found out they had fire trucks and police cars this was ordered immediately for Christmas. Well constructed and lots of fun, they ride really smooth as well.

This is my first experience with Melissa & Doug toys and I'm not impressed. I bought this set and the construction set for my toddlers (2 yo boy and 3 yo girl), thinking they would be a fun activity to keep little hands busy. They were thrilled right up until they tried to pick them up like they would other toys cars and the pieces came apart. Daddy Man and I showed them how to take the vehicles apart and put them back together, explaining that they're like the puzzles they've been learning to do. My kids understood, but weren't really into it. They wanted to be able to drive the cars around and do regular play with them. This isn't really possible unless they're very careful with them because the pieces fit loosely on the posts.

We kept encouraging them to play with these, including trying some of the suggestions printed on the bottom of the package. Their weren't interested. I have to note that this level of disinterest is not normal for my kids. They LOVE building, stacking, playing with puzzles and putting things together. That is WHY I bought these things.

Their play consisted of mostly taking the vehicles apart and leaving the pieces scattered around, but I kept encouraging, showing them how to mix and match, making vehicle noises, counting wheels, showing the pictures on the bottom of the chassis of how they go together, and just busting my butt to make these things interesting. With just even this minimal amount of "play" going on, the paint started to wear on the edges of the pieces and the soft wood is denting.

After about 2 months, my kids are finally playing with these vehicles, mixing and matching the pieces between the 2 sets to make all kinds of combos. So, yay for that, right? Sure, right up until (after maybe 3 days of active play) my husband found our daughter with a sharp shard of wood (see photo). Somehow, a piece of the wood from the firetruck chipped off from around the post hole while she was playing with it. She was NOT being rough. The scariest part is that we only found HALF of the shard. We're hoping the other half is trapped in the carpet somewhere and not inside one of the kids. I regret buying these toys and am considering gluing the stupid things together so my kids could at least use them for regular car play.

My boys love the trucks and putting them together. A good solid product and very durable. I also like how at the bottom of the trucks, it shows which pieces go with which truck.

The vehicles are made quite well and they are attractive. Young childrn can play with them with ease however, a two year old may need help putting the pieces back together.

My 2-1/2 year old nephew liked these, and I'm happy with the purchase. They stood up really well to his rough brand of play, too!

Gave these to my 2yr old grandtwins...boy & girl. They were immediately intrigued with them as they've just started doing puzzles. These puzzles are just the right size and right number of pieces for this age and to about 3yrs I would think. Very nicely made; painted well. I like that you can do several learning activities with them such as identify the type of vehicle; color identification;counting, etc. The wheels actually roll as well so they can be pushed along w/appropriate siren sounds too!

I purchased this set for my four-year-old granddaughter who is enamored with small wooden toy car and train sets. I thought it would be an excellent addition to her collection. I was struck by how unusual it was--a 3D puzzle and vehicle set combined! The only thing I didn't know was that the set was larger than I expected. It is really perfect for a two-to-three-year-old who is just beginning to have fun with vehicles and will enjoy "building" and rebuilding the vehicles as well as playing with these nicely-sized and sturdy toys.

I bought these for my 2yr old. He absolutely loves them. I love that the wood is so durable and he jasnt been able to break them, like his hot wheel cars. He loves to mismatch them, but when its time to put them away, he loves putting them together like a puzzle. He also loves the truck carrier. Very happy with their toys!
