Horrible value, doesn't include pieces on the picture
on December 26, 2009
Our 4 year old son received this as a gift, and we were all greatly disappointed. First, you need to carefully examine the picture on the front. The set shows an airplane and a train, which are NOT included in this set. This set includes the airplane track, but what good does this do without the plane? We assembled the kit and next our son was asking where the plane was. So now we are forced to go back out and buy the plane. Then, we discovered that once the pieces are snapped together, the will NOT come apart without some serious work. I needed a set of screwdrivers and pliers to get them apart.
Overall, what we have found with GeoTrax is that no single set does much alone. You need at least 2-3 sets and to also buy some track to get any functionality. We felt that this set was designed to "lure" you into buying more sets to go along with it. In our opinion, this adds up the cost very quickly and we would rather put the money into legos or toys that have more potential uses.
