By Summer B. Frace on December 27, 2010
Overall, I'm really happy we got my daughter a Plan Toys train set for Christmas. She always loves playing with them places we go (stores, children's museum, etc.) and this toy is getting a lot of play in our home now. We purchased this set along with the PlanToys Road & Rail Play Set - Transportation and I have to say that the two are a good pairing. They compliment each other nicely, giving us a nice selection of both railway track and road pieces to construct with. We also got the Plan Toys table and a play mat to complete our set.

We're big fans of Plan Toys in our house. We have a lot of their products as I find that they make some of the most creative and durable wooden toys on the market, that being said, I have a few issues with this train set, but there are some pros. Let me list both:

Pros:
- Compatible with other wooden train set tracks such as Melissa and Doug, Thomas the Train and Ikea
- Beautiful, sturdy and well-constructed
- Comes with a nice assortment of tracks and road pieces, two trains (with three cars each), two cars, a bus, a handful of people, some road signs and some trees
- All the items pack up and fit nicely inside the station so you can put it away easily without needing to purchase extra containers

Cons:
- When folded down, the side of the station that lays on the ground is painted with nice windows but the side remaining up on the back is unpainted
- My railway station was missing a couple of holes for supporting the pylons when open. We drilled them ourselves to avoid dealing with a return and it's fine now.

We purchased the Plan Toys Road & Railway Station set for our 2 year old for Christmas, and I must start by stating the toy is meant for 3 years +, so I understand that he is too young to appreciate it in full (though my husband and I find it very fun!) We know that he can enjoy elements of it, such as the little stairway platform, the cars, the people, and placing everything in the box at the end.

Aside from my son's young age, I was worried that the pieces, including track and box, were not as well made as I had expected for Plan Toys, and the price. On the first day, a piece of the clock which attaches to the train station and acts as an additional closure to the station/storage box, broke so that we cannot re-attach it! :( It was clear that this would happen when my husband and I first tried to assemble it onto the station, as it took some force. So this cannot be blamed on my son!

The leg of the step platform is about to break as well.

Also, the tracks and road don't align so well, which is more of an annoyance with the little cars and bus because they don't ride so smoothly down the road.

Essentially, a lot of glue is used on many of the pieces, and the tracks and box are slightly warped, so I'm not overly impressed by the quality of this set compared to other brands of wooden toys such as Haba. Plan Toys for younger children are also made much better than their older children's toys, which is fine, as long as the company's price reflected this.

Aside from that, I love the spaces and the room for creativity that this set offers, and if it lasts, I would imagine that my son will have loads of fun adding on to the tracks and roads as he develops.

I am writing solely about the cars and bus that are part of this set. I don't mind that the cars are tiny, as other reviewers of Plan Toy cars (sold separately) have noted; from bumper to bumper about the size of a golf ball, but shorter from base to roof and hence a potential choking hazard. My one year old finds them a little on the small side and has a bit more difficulty gripping them as they have smooth, rounded edges, unlike say, the Plan City train cars. The advantage of this car is that it can 'drive' along the standard (Plan City, Thomas or IKEA) wooden railroad. It also doesn't scratch our hardwood floors because of the rubber wheels, unlike the Melissa & Doug cars or IKEA train cars which have plastic wheels and metal hubcaps.

The reason I am writing a negative review of this toy is to caution parents that the wheels are detachable. I wouldn't consider my 21 month old particularly savvy with small toys, yet I found him sucking on two of the apparently removable rubber wheels earlier. The cars are small to begin with, hence the wheels are even smaller, about the size of M&M chocolates, so some may not consider them of choking hazard size. Still, the notion of a toddler chewing on or swallowing (toxic) rubber is less than ideal. While the wood seems hardy enough as with most Plan Toys, and the paint has stood up to some toddler gnawing, I cannot consider the toy durable since the wheels are removable, tiny and liable to get lost. It's going back into the china cabinet together with the automoblox toy cars whose wheels are also removable, and more easily so. As I have other Plan Toy Road and Train sets, I have found that the wheels also come off other vehicles as they are all similarly made.
