Combining their responsibility to the community and their desire to be environmentally conscious, they have a program to reduce (or better yet, re-use) what they would normally dispose of... Early Childhood Resources has eliminated almost all of their cardboard waste by implementing commercial cardboard shredding equipment in its facilities to convert cardboard destined for the landfill into some of the best packing material available.
Competition typically demands lower costs and with it, labor intense jobs are being exported faster and faster every year. Early Childhood Resources, being committed to "Maximum Value," balances the demands from the marketplace with the practicality and social values of finding ways to maximize the capabilities of those in our community with developmental disabilities, and want to work! The program provides a stimulating and developmentally enriching environment. These individuals gain valuable social and work skills while earning competitive wages, and creating "Maximum Value" in their products.

Overall, the materials used are reasonably good quality. Certainly durable enough for play use. However, the lag bolt construction (think Ikea) is finicky as there is no clear feedback / stop when the bolts lock, and they are as likely to strip as they are likely to turn and hold solidly. If only half of the set bolts turn, the construction becomes somewhat wobbly. Also, without many stickers, the feel of the piece is a bit retro when compared with other sets. Knobs are not functional / not many accessory colors etc. Also, the set is a little bit smaller than you might expect - already a little bit small for my 4 year olds...

Nice sturdy pieces. It was little time consuming to put together. The pieces are smaller then what we had anticipated... but very sturdy hope they last a while.
