I fear that if a rated this any higher, it wouldn't get noticed. Although my son and daughter love playing with the train set, one of the track pieces was broken before we got it. Also, as others have stated, the hill pieces fall apart. My biggest and main complaint however is, they advertise this set as being compatible with Thomas the Train. We bought several of those trains to go with this set for my son's birthday and he can use them on this track. They do not fit. I ignored other reviews saying this because I figured they were older reviews and KidKraft fixed the issue, or that there was user error somewhere along the line. Not the case. If you want to is this set without the hill pieces, or other trains, then this is a great track. Otherwise, save your money for a better track.

My 5 and 2 year old love playing with this train set. I have fun helping them put it together too. We actually bought this so we would have extra pieces to go with the table set we purchased from Costco. If it's in your budget, I recommend a table so the kids aren't playing on the floor and if the table has storage is best. There are many to choose from.

PROS:

-Sturdy pieces
-Generous variety of pieces/ Many configurations/ Good replay value
-Encourages problem solving
-Fun for 1 kid or more
-Encourages sharing and playing together
-Encourages imagination (For extra fun, someone can use any monster toy and be like Godzilla destroying everything :-)

CONS:

-Pieces can get lost because there are so many. Just plan for storage and make kids clean up after themselves.

I bought this set for my toddler. She really enjoys it. However, I am really disappointed with the train cars. The magnets are really weak so the train comes apart going up the hills. Also, there is too much resistance against the wheels so the cars have problems on the track. I used other brand train cars on the track and had no problems. I am really disappointed because now I need to buy more cars.

This toy holds my 21-month-old's attention. But the trains dont stay on the track and the track doesnt fit together very well. The directions were also wrong, which made it a challenge to put together.

KidKraft makes some excellent toys. We have made it a tradition that we get one of these train sets for my son every year for Christmas. They are durable, easy to put together, and fun. They also fit all kinds of trains ( a pet-peeve of mine with other sets) as well as fit with the other sets so you can build some epic railroads. Recommend, recommend, recommend.

This set is adorable. The farm pieces and the whole thing set up is very cute. It's also very inexpensive compared to Thomas and other train sets. Unfortunately, the trains don't move along the track very easily. I was a little disappointed. My son still plays with it, though, so I'll give it three stars.

Had to return this item. It warns of sharp edges during installation. My grandson has hemophilia, too high a risk.

Compared to Brio sets this is an unbelievable price and it is completely compatible with Brio trains and add on play sets. Just a note to save you my embarassment, many of the pieces are reversible...they can be used on both sides. I thought that they had sent the wrong pieces until my husband pointed out that I could just flip some of them over. We have added additional Brio sets and the Thomas trains as well and they work perfectly with the tracks. Great quality too!

this is the best train set ever!!! my son and friends spend hours playing with it. its adaptable with other sets, and has various different details that make it interesting. One problem i had with this set is that the barn and one of the track pieces broke pretty quickly, but the company has amazing customer service. they shipped the pieces out to me right away free of charge, and they told me that usually the product doesnt break so often.

Bought this for my son's 2nd birthday. This is his absolute favorite toy and you can use some of the Thomas trains on these tracks too. Every day he gets more creative with it. I can see him playing with this for a long time. We are planning to get another set for Christmas for him.
