Bought another one to replace one that was lost/stolen from our preschool. The ropes continually come off the wheels required re-positioning. Children really enjoy lifing items onto the play structure but are unable to reposition the rope without adult help.

Shown with a basket which is not included and does not seem to be anywhere on site but would make pulley much more useful.

An added counterweight could prevent the rope from coming off the track on occasion.

Our & YO daughter loves her pulley which she uses in our tree house - we live in CO where weather can be harsh to wooden toys so we store the pulley indoors when not in use. The long cords make it difficult to store without getting tangled. Having a wall hook each for the pulley itself and the wound cord makes storage easier...

My now 14 year-old son received this when he was 5 and my 7 year-old daughter began playing with it the first chance she got. They still enjoy it. It is especially good if you have a deck or a staircase overlooking a 2 story foyer. The string hasn't unraveled but does come off the pulley if you let one end go and takes some doing to "rewire" it but well worth the trouble. A knot fixes the problem but I wish it came with a stop for the loose end. I have bought these for many other children and have never been disappointed. It is a perfect toy for open-ended and imaginative play.
