    This is the exception to the “they don’t build things like they used to” complaint we have about so many things. I was blown away at the quality. This the perfect toy for my daughter. She loves helping her mommy clean and this set is great for that. The quality is great and built with sturdy wood, soft cotton on the bristles of the broom and mop head, the stand is well built and sturdy and even the box it came in was adorable. My daughter loves this set and I recommend it as an inexpensive yet impressive gift for the little helper in your life 🙂

    I bought this for my 2 yr old, and he LOVES IT. He loves taking everything off the hooks, putting them back on, taking them off…and then he’ll actually go “clean” which is one of my favorite things to watch. As a side bonus, my other two older kids (5 and 6) are now begging for their own set so they can help clean. Winning!

    My only wish here is that there was a swiffer included, not just a traditional mop (the swiffer is my son’s favorite to clean with, as opposed to a broom or mop). But to solve this lack, I just bought a kid-size swiffer from a different company and added it to the stand. I would have preferred a Melissa and Doug one – their products are always so sturdy and well-made, like the ones in this set – but, it is what it is. Very satisfied!

    My 1 year old really likes this set. It is well designed with the center base holding the broom, mop, duster, hand broom, and dustpan. It is made completely of wood so it can handle the abuse of being stepped on, thrown down steps, hitting siblings, you know all the things kids love to do while helping mommy and daddy clean, besides actually cleaning. The only quality flaw I see in the set is the center base is a little wobbly and the dustpan is rather flimsy. The price point of this set I expected a little more. Santa ended up bringing this set for my 1 year old daughter as at this stage she is infatuated with helping clean and does a rather good job with this set. When she is playing with it our 5 and 7 year old tend to want to help as well so this covers a pretty good age group. The toys are easy to clean with mild soap and water and let them air dry. I have not had any bad effects from doing this yet. All in all this is a great set any kid that enjoys cleaning will like.

    I’m usually a big fan of Doug and Melissa toys but this one as one major flaw and one durability issue. The first is the dust pan. The lip of the pan is quite thick, and doesn’t taper to a lip, or have a rubber lip. This means that you can’t actually sweep dust into the pan. My daughter wants to use her dustpan and broom to help me clean up, but most of the dirt just gets stuck at the thick lip. The second issue is the mop. The strings are just loose cut thick strings, and will fray and unravel over time. Pretty poor quality.

    It’s a cute set though, and my daughter enjoys it. I can live with the mop, but I wish the dust pan was usable.

    I got this for my recently turned 2 year old son to help encourage pretend play. This set is really cute and seems really well built. It came mostly assembled, all I had to do was connect the stand to the base. The base has a little weight to it, which helps to keep it standing upright. My son is a bit young for this and hasn’t quite grasped the concept of pretend play. So he mostly drags it around the house, which can be a little dangerous at times when he swings the broom or the mop. I have seen him try to sweep the floor a few times, but that doesn’t last long. I think in a few months he will be more ready to play with it as intended. I would say the perfect age for this is closer to 2.5 or 3 years old.

    Absolutely wonderful! I’d looked at some other similar plastic sets but I prefer wooden toys over plastic, much more durable and classic.

    Arrived very quickly, easy to open and ready to play with pretty quickly. Melissa and Doug toys never disappoint and this is no exception – very well made, just the right size for little hands and can tell it’s going to last a long time. The stand is brill, keeps them tidy and looks really nice stood up with everything hanging off it.

    Not been played with yet as it’s for Christmas but I know she’ll love it (and maybe she’ll stop trying to use our broom now!)

    I bought this set for my 2 year old daughter who loves to help around the house. She loves to use these, but can not hang them back on the holder because the loops are made of string and require more fine motor skill than she possesses. I end up having to pick the pieces up multiple times a day and hang them back on the holder for her, which is obviously tiresome. Having worked with young children for quite a long time I can assure you that most young children will not take the time or put forth the effort to properly hang these back on the holder, really rendering it useless. So while I think the design is cute, it could be much more useful than it is. I might try replacing the strings with something less flexible such as zip ties or gimp.

    Cute set of kids cleaning items, stand seems sturdy and robust so it doesn’t get knocked over easily, and the wood is good quality. However the strings on the mop are a bit random in length see picture.

    This is an adorable play cleaning set. My son LOVES “cleaning”. We have had another plastic set for awhile, but I liked that this one came with a stand. Very cute, feels durable (only had it for about a month). The ends felt a little dangerous for my toddler so I bought (from Amazon) 1/2” diameter (1” depth) rubber leg ends to put on the ends of all of the wooden rods. This made it feel much safer. I had to change the strings to make them longer to fit over for hanging on the stand, but a minor change. Also, fyi, I’d you choose to do the rubber ends, I suggest buying white. I originally got black ones, but black rubber ends will leave marks if bumped on white walls. Would recommend this set & buy this again.

    Super sturdy. My 6 year old stood on the pole of the stand when it fell over. It did not break, just flexed and returned to straight. (After I reminded him it was not for standing on)

    Easy to assemble. The stand screwed together nicely. The little string hoops hang easily on the hooks. I would like to see a wall hanger alternative that matches the set, though.

    Great giftable item. Kids get to copy the grown-ups, without the risk of whacking everything with the broom handle that’s twice as tall as they are.

    This set is great for imitation play, make believe, and keeping my tv screen a little safer.

    The only real downside is the mop. Bit of an odd shape and a screw head on the bottom that might scratch a floor.
