It comes in many many pieces!!! Took ages to put together!

I haven't got this one, I've got the toot toot garage but your post has just given me a sinking feeling in my stomach. It's going to be in millions of pieces too isn't it. sigh

Better get building. Knew I shouldn't have wrapped it so early.

My experience of toot toot toys isn't too bad Grumpy, lots of stickers but not too many pieces unless it involves a track!

I'm currently stashing a powered ride on quad that needs to charge for 16 hours before first nerves are shot everytime the kids go near our bedroom!

Haha this reminds me of last year, kids went to bed stupidly early because they were excited, we bought ds the Disney cars wooden table. But me and DH got stuck into the baileys before we attempted it, it had collapsed by the time we had got up in the morning. Thankfully ds blamed naughty Santa and the too many baileys he had probably drunk on his rounds. grin

I'm waiting for DS to go to bed so we can build the Ikea play kitchen confused

We couldn't do it before now as there's nowhere to store it.

Who wants to guess what time the Christmas row will be?

Last year we spent hours putting up a dolls house. Finally finished it, when dp said it was a weird house to have an outside dressing room. Walls had been put in wrong way, so had to dismantle and start again.... nothing to put up tonight thank god!

We built the ikea kitchen last night ...sort out the screws carefully and place in pots labelled by the serial number. It went together smooth as silk...was a joy . And we are renowned for our flat pack rows ! Probably 90 mins .good luck .

Apparently my parents had quite the whispered row when they put the batteries in my Furby before wrapping it, only for it to sing and chatter under the Christmas tree fgrin

I'm finished! You were right bobsmum, a ridiculous amount of stickers.

I'm now building the perfect gin and tonic wink

We came close to buying this. I'm glad we didn't now.

The mega parking garage wasn't too bad to put together. Just huge. Need a place to store it.
