Fun on their own.
on May 8, 2017
I resently purchased these to go along with the Melissa & Doug Stacking Construction Vehicles Wooden Toy Set. Unfortunately the parts do not interchange as well as I had hoped. The pegs in which they stack on are set just a tiny bit closer together. This makes it difficult to mix and match the two sets. This is not the only set of toys that I have bought from Melissa & Doug that I thought would be the same in size and demention but are not. One more concern I have is the durability of the toy. The rods holding the tires onto the car are made of plastic. As my three year old students place their weight on the car pushing it around the rug will the plastic rods start to buckle. I purchased the
Melissa & Doug Construction Vehicle Wooden Play Set which came with metal rods instead of plastic. I wish Melissa and Doug items were more consistent in quality. Over the year I have bought several toys for my class from this toy company. Some are great and others are an utter disapoinment. I would recommend this product to a friend if they were buying it for their own child and they were not trying to pair it with a similar toy as I did.
