I believe this question would be much better answered by Step2 rather than them sending this out for previous customers to answer. Even though I purchased this last year, Step2 did not offer me employment or make me privy to their manufacturing and shipping timelines, nor offer me extra information as to who I would contact in China to follow-up directly on this question.
Good luck to the person asking this question, and if you do end up purchasing this item please allow yourself plenty of time to assemble it, along with a counseling session for you and the other people who work on assembling this because you will probably need it. After the attempted assembly, remember the precious children you purchased this item for and that one day the assembly process will be a distant memory (but not quite yet after 11 months).
