When My mother found this set at Wal-mart she bought about 8 for my brother and me to earn, two or three where given as gifts to our friends for their birthdays, so I ended up with 2.
I remember keeping one of mine intact for a while, (a whole two days) compared to the usual amount of time I keep mine together. I also remember using the other one to make the crank work to fire the catapult. (It looked horrible, but it worked.) All in all I like this set for it's pieces, and it's one of the few sets I kept intact for over a day.
