My almost 4 year old loves this carriage and is a part of most of his adventures! The only downside I would say is that the magnets on the timbers are curved with the wood and the magnetic strength is quite weak - therefore when he uses any of his 3 different (Brio branded) cranes the timber always falls off. This annoys him somewhat. All other Brio magnets seem nice and strong so not sure why these arent. Either way, I'd still buy it for him again, he loves it!
