I am very happy with the box itself. I am keeping it along with the shipping carton as no doubt in 20 plus years it will increase the value. The fault of the manfacturer comes in the packing of the parts as you can see in this post is just not substantial enough. Any plastic toy I have ever gotten has bags that are seperated by cardboard partitions to protect shifting and scratching. Being that these are heavy Birch wood and easily scratched acrylic and they are being shipped literally around the world from China to USA, it is unexcusable that the parts are almost certainly damaged upon receipt of product. I did the best I could with assembly which I will elaborate in another post.
