Ds is 3. For xmas last year we bought him a toy garage from toys'r'us. It broke within days. Can anyone recommmend a more sturdy one - have seen suitable ones at playgroups and hospital waiting rooms but don't want to spend a fortune (£50+), any ideas gratefully received.

We have a Fisher Price Little People one which has been woefully abused amd still in one piece but is probably a bit too babyfied for 3 yo?

Just bought the Big City Garage from ELC. So far so good, looks like it's fairly tough in the sense that nothing is TOO solid. If DS falls on it or bashes it things are loose enough to come off but sturdy enough to click back on!

Only time will tell...

We have the same one as DeathbyDora. Had it for 3 years and it's still going strong. It has been sat on and stood on repeatedly but everything just clips back into place. My DS's are 21 months and 4.10 and it should last years to come.

Hi, I was recommended the Fisher Price one for general sturdiness. It's no longer made but can be found on eBay etc. Bought one locally to save on the P&P costs & it's MASSIVE... but incredibly sturdy! The ramps work really well too
