We lucked out and found this set in the DC store yesterday. My DD10 has been playing with it non-stop since. Aside from the bakery she got when she was five, I do not think she has ever "played" with an AG toy like this before. I highly recommend it- it's well thought out and constructed and really "works". We think AG should have figured out some sort of "cover" to fit over the bar and convert it to a vault! A+ and worth the price!
