Well ,this was the big surprise! New, this set costs $799 and we did not even come close to paying that. We felt like we got a great deal. Typically Little Tykes products hold up quite well. Plus we already have 3 kids playing on it and next year our 4th child should be old enough to join in on the fun too! We knew we needed something constructive for the Professor to climb on and jump off of. Knowing he will soon have a little brother was what convinced my husband that we needed this for them. Our girls are super active but….boys are a lot different than girls. Not at all in a bad way, just different. Our girls need time to be active and play outside, but without constructive play our son likes to get into trouble. LOL! Anyways, we are so excited!! We truly do not spoil our kids and rarely get them gifts “just because”. This was great fun for all of us and I look forward to years of watching them play on it.
