Great idea but poorly executed. Almost impossible to put together without breaking the wooden piece that must be bent in a semi-circle to install. As difficult as the assembly is, getting a whole kit with the right parts or parts that are machined properly is even more difficult. So far we have had to order three kits and still do not have one functioning toy.

Hubby and I read all the reviews before even ordering. Upon appearance, this is exactly what I wanted for our baby girl. I asked him if he was up for the "challenge" of assembly and he said yes, so we ordered it. We hadn't attempted to put it together until today since we ordered it earlier than her first birthday, but with it coming up in a week, I wanted to get it together. We did EXACTLY what other reviewers said. We did it together and we steamed the thin piece of wood prior to trying to bend it. It was easy. Literally I took two dish clothes, soaked them In warm water, wrapped the wood fully and left them on my counter wrapped up for about half hour. Then a pulled out my iron set on high steam filled it with water and ironed the wood thru the dish towels. Ironed for a couple minutes on both sides and hubby then took it to start the bending. It worked fine. It did take two of us to guide it into the slots, but it went in pretty quick. Total time to put together was less than an hour as the rest of it we built while the wood was "soaking". Easy breezy and highly recommended.

Love, love, love this walker, trolley, cart! Quality design and construction! Followed others advise on heat and steam to bend plywood sheet...worked great! Wouldn't try to bend without steaming board with wet towel and iron first. Otherwise very simple to assemble. My 9 month old daughter loves it! However, it does roll a bit too fast for her to push alone and there is no way of tightening the wheels so they roll slower. I have a feeling this toy will last a long time and be lots of fun for years to come! Magic Cabin was also wonderful to deal with...I forgot to put in my code for free shipping and I emailed them a note upon following my transaction and they honored the code. It took 1 week from time of order to arriving at my doorstep! Again...great product, great store, and better for the environment! I love wooden toys!

It was a little difficult to assemble. I followed someone else's advise on for bending the flat board using heat and moisture. It worked great. Board did not break! My 10 month old daughter is very happy using it for assistance in walking. It does not go so fast that she falls. I'm very satisfied with product. Even my 5 yr old boy was excited about it. I can see this product will hold my daughters interest for some time!

We purchased this for our 1 year old, as she loves to walk around the house and pick up her toys. This cart is perfect for her to put her "trinkets" in, and we love, love, love that it is sturdy and doesn't tip over when she pushes down on the handle (like others we tried before. We can't speak for the other uses, but I imagine she will love it just as much. My husband had no problem putting it together, but said the directions weren't all that helpful. My only complaint is that the cart is fairly large and therefore heavy for her to turn as she moves about the house.
