Constructed of particle board finished like wood, the 3-foot by 5-foot base is sturdy enough to withstand enthusiastic play. A drawer on both of the 5-foot sides provides ample storage space for the multiple, small pieces. The stops on each drawer are one of the weaker points of the Imaginarium City Central Train Table. Of the four screws, two per side, provided with the set-up only one caught when screwed in. We anticipate having to replace these stops in the future. The top of the table, which is two separate pieces, is a thinner particle board onto which the base scenery has been applied. It appears this could be gouged or scraped, but should survive most children's play.
The wood tracks and buildings are well made; the finish is smooth and there is no firring on the end cuts. The train pieces are also finished well; colorful painting of the cars adds to the toy's appeal. The fact that all the pieces are included in the set-up makes this an attractive choice for those not wanting to have to purchase multiple add-ons.
Complete assembly and set-up takes about two hours. Instructions are clear and easy to understand. The most time-consuming portion of the set-up was laying out the tracks. To save time in the future, we marked the alphabetic identifier on each specific, discrete piece. Then we numbered the pieces, beginning with 1 and progressing through the final number.Read more ›
Two of the screws have begun to poke through the front side of the table. They didnt do this when we first assembled it. Not a huge deal, they havent broken all the way through the wood so its not a safety risk but just kind of an eye sore.
The table itself is very sturdy. Our boys are not always gentle with their toys and we have had no problems with this holding up. The tracks and trains are also very good quality and we haven't had a single piece break in 2 years. The only quality complaint I have is with the station portion. This does not stay together well and usually ends up in about six pieces until I come along and reassemble. We have tried super glue to keep it together but it still comes apart. Making this part more of a solid 1 piece toy would have been fabulous.
The other complaint I have is that the curved plastic bridge needs to be about a quarter of an inch longer. The tracks tend to fall apart because they arent able to sit properly on the bridge and be supported. Very frustrating to kids when the tracks keep falling apart there.
We like to flip the table top over and use it to build LEGOS or blocks when we arent playing trains. FYI, the top of the table does scratch fairly easily but our kids don't mind.
All in all, good toy. Fun and offers a lot of room for creativity. I would purchase again.
