Playmobil is amazing!,
This review is from: Playmobil 4404 Hospital (Toy)
Whew! I just finished putting this together for Christmas. Clocked in at a little over 2 1/2 hours. We have a lot of Playmobil already (though this is our most intricate set) so I am sure that was helpful in cutting down my assembly time. I can definitely see how people who are doing this for the first time would take much longer. I do wish Playmobil would take a page out of Lego's book and package the pieces differently. I personally don't see much rhyme or reason; several items needed for a page in the instruction manual can be spread across several bags.
No one can touch Playmobil when it comes to detail so I can see how things take time.
I think this set is pretty durable and can only suggest to those who are disappointed or experiencing otherwise that your kids might be too young. My daughter is 8 1/2 and just starting to be able to assemble the sets herself. No way would I buy this for anyone under the age of 6. That being said, it's really comparable to a dollhouse- you set it up somewhere and they play with it. If your child is trying to move it around all the time during play, then I can see how walls might starts to come apart. But they are easy enough to pop back in.
She has not played with it but I know she will be thrilled. This set has tons of pieces so it's a great deal compared to the other. I did buy her a couple small things like the wheel chair to fill it out a bit but that's totally not necessary.
Would definitely recommend for an older child.
