All aboard for playtime and learning excitement! The solid wood Stacking Train combines the benefits and fun of block play with toddlers’ love of trains and things that move. The 15 brightly colored wooden blocks come in red, yellow, green, and blue. Holes in the multi-shaped blocks allow kids to stack them in various ways on wooden dowels built into the three wheeled, train cars—or they can stack, sort, and play with the blocks on their own. Train cars can be linked together or played with individually, adding even more exciting playtime options.
Creative skill builders
This versatile train set allows kids to build, stack, and roll—and to build developmental skills, too!

I have found that sometimes the age recommendation on toys is not always accurate. This plaything is appropriately labeled for 2 and up, and will probably continue to entertain my son for another 6 months or more. As a side note, the stacking order is quite complex for little minds. Although this does not take away from the fun-factor, it can add to the level of frustration. This mommy had to go on-line to see the stacking sequence so she could teach her son.
The Stacking Train is a well-built puzzle! It has been tossed around, stepped on, and even chewed upon, yet keeps on rolling. There are NO sharp edges on this toy, but we have had a few minor mishaps when my son, who plays rough, has pulled the dowels off the cars. We glued them back with wood glue, and the following day this choo choo is back to rolling around on the floor. Recently, my son lost one of the blue dowels, which links the cars together.Read more ›
"this train has been recalled in Canada for containing high levels of barium. Apparently barium can cause (according to Health Canada), nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and cramps as well as more severe symptoms."
There was also a recall on their geometric stacker.
The Melissa and Doug representatives were AWFUL!! The said it was an isolated incident and not a big deal!!! It is dishonest and wrong that they never issued a recall here and there was hardly any information on this recall available. DO NOT BUY THESE TOYS!!!
Update 9/27/13- Suzanne with Melissa and Doug has offered to send a new puzzle and train. (Very fast response.) I will update and let you know the condition of the replacement.
Update 1/13/2014- Suzanne with Melissa and Doug did send a new train out very quickly, but it was also in need of sanding and covered in splinters. I haven't had time to buy sand paper, sand all the little pieces and match the colors so I can touch up the paint yet, this birthday present has turned into quite a project. Melissa and Doug should recall the defective batches that are already out there and pull this product from the market until they are able to solve their quality control issues.
Shouldn't the childn't toy be more durable???
She loves to play with it as a train - she lets her stuffed animals ride it and even tries to ride it herself.
As a puzzle, she has mastered the 'take it apart' aspect, and is learning to put it back together. It is a well designed puzzle that will be challenging for younger toddlers - some of the reasons that you'd choose block X over block Y are subtle - but it is still a serviceable train most ways you can put it together, although it might look odd.
It is very durable and safe. My daughter has sat upon it, stood on it, and dropped it on a wooden floor. So far it is still completely intact. Nothing has chipped or come loose.
This is another great Melissa and Doug product that will be enjoyed for many years, provided we can avoid losing the pieces. Toddlers can play with it on a simple level - it is a train - or a more complex level as a puzzle.
