"After reading some of the reviews about this being difficult to assemble, I was a little nervous about ordering it. I'm glad I did. It was very EASY to assemble. My nearly 6-year-old son did it with a little assistance from me. So, not sure what trouble people are having. For what it is, the quality is great. And I am rather particular when it comes to things like this. It's adorable and can't wait to see it on the table on party day."
