I bought this set as a gift for my grandnephew for his 1st birthday. The set was packaged in an Amazon box with some air wrap and all looked good. However, since the price tag was printed on the case holding the books I needed to open the cellophane wrap to cover it. Then the damage was obvious to three corners of the case itself were torn. I would have liked to return the item for exchange but there was no time before the big day. The books were unharmed and will be greatly cherished.
