This item shipped very quickly and the service from Dinkydoo was amazing as always. The design wall came in the carrying case and as I started unpacking it I found a few pieces were cracking and a few of the glued items had come unglued. This damage was not due to shipping or storage, I think the parts are just not made to be high quality. I was able to get the design wall assembled by myself, but it is very flimsy. If you have curious children or pets you will have to snap it back together because if the wall gets moved the poles will pop off. I plan on leaving this up all the time but if I was planning on putting it up and taking it down a lot I'd have to modify it so that the poles stay connected; the instructions even say that you may have to wrap tape around the poles to prevent them from popping off.
