1. Solid plastic construction has held up to the abuse of my 3 year olds "earthcakes"
2. Pieces stay together better than the wooden train sets
3. Compatible with wooden trains from Thomas, Brio and Chuggington.
4. Moving parts provide some intrinsic excitement.
5. It is now my son's go to train set when he wants to play with his trains.
1. Thomas has a tendency to derail, at the bottom of the mine after he gets the crown.
2. It can be difficult to reset the crumbling walls (they don't stay up), and the moving track.
3. Takes up a lot of space.
UPDATE after 2 months:
After about 2 weeks my sons interest waned somewhat, and for a good three weeks the track was disassembled and put away. However since then he takes it out and plays with it at least several times a week. This has led to some new observations.
1. The track pieces are extremely durable, they have withstood being dismantled by monster attacks, giant attacks, giant monster attacks, earthquakes, fires (not real ones), and most dangerous of all, temper tantrums (real ones).
2. Although initial setup was pretty complex and time consuming, setting up the track again has been extremely intuitive and easy. In fact, since the first construction I have never had to refer back to instructions or pictures of the track... This even though I spent a month between the first time I set it up completely and the second time.
3. The ability to set up the track so that the piece of track that swings on the crane just stays in the closed position is ingenious, and really reduced my sons frustration.
4. Because set up is so easy, it's not a big deal to take the track apart and put it away when you want that floor space back.Read more ›
Pro: Has multiple action sections that keep kids moving
Pro: Action sections can be set to easy mode for younger kids
Pro: Wooden track trains fit in the these plastic tracks
Con: Slightly too big for the old wooden track Thomas play table
My 2 year old and 4 year old love this train set. They have enjoyed the Thomas the tank engine wooden tracks in the past. The wooden track trains do still fit on these tracks which the kids quickly found out when we put the track on the old Thomas wooden track play table. The wooden track play table was a little too small for this set unfortunately, but it was still usable with this new set hanging over the sides in two places.
This track does have the train that moves itself. This play set is well designed so the kids don't just sit back and watch it go round and round on it's own until they get board of watching it. The set has triggers that the train sets off as it passes through that the kids need to be there for to set back in place so that the train doesn't crash or get stuck. Each of these things can be set so that the child doesn't have to reset them to keep the train moving which is a really nice feature for the younger ones.
So far all the parts seem durable. The train has been dropped on the hardwood floor over and over without any issues. The connection points that hold the sections of track together have bent a few times from the kids pushing on the set. This hasn't been an issue though. They don't seem to bend too much and then when the tracks are put back together it's goes right back into the correct shape.
The set is a lot of fun. But there are some important caveats that are worth mentioning. First, it takes quite a bit of adult assembly the first time (and adult assistance each subsequent time, since the pieces must be put together just right to make the set work, something that will be above most kids until at least middle elementary). Second, and maybe most important, is age. The recommended age is 3 to 6 years. My three-year-old enjoyed watching the train, but manipulating the train or the set was largely above him, because of the delicacy required in making the moving parts work. He had a blast playing with it, but would have quickly become frustrated if his older siblings hadn't been playing along with him and if I hadn't been there to get the track reset.Read more ›

Its a really cute set, but I have to be honest it didn't last long with our little ones. Falls apart very easily, and requires lots of extra space.Published 1 month ago by Mitzi Hazleback
