My son was given this for Christmas 2009. Within a week 2 of the supporting legs have been broken. They are made of flimsy and thin plywood which doesnt stand up to being played with by an excited 3 year old who doesnt notice what he's about to sit on. As another reviewer noted, it is also tricky to get the pieces to fit together and the track comes apart too easily. We had high hopes for this, but it was a bit of a disappointment.

My 2.5 year old son received this for Christmas. We bought it from a store in the High Street, but later I checked the reviews on Amazon and was not impressed. In fact, I was thinking that maybe we should return it and get something else instead. However, I am glad we kept it. It is actually a lot of fun and I don't find it particularly difficult to put together. The first time we set it up was on Christmas Day at my parent's house - to be honest, it was a little precarious and did fall to bits somewhat. I know now, though, that this was because it was set up on carpet - after taking it home and setting it up on floorboards I have found it works perfectly and is pretty stable. My son uses a battery Red Mighty Locomotive Brio train on it, and as long as you set it up properly, it goes up and down with no problems. I don't know how stable it would be if you used the push-along trains with it - I imagine it may get knocked over much more easily then. In my opinion, this toy is much better suited to the battery trains anyway, because otherwise your child would find it more awkward to push the train round the lower level. The battery train is great fun because it speeds down the high hill like a rollercoaster! My son loves this aspect of it the best. I can see from the other reviews that other people have had problems with this toy, but for us it is definitely a fun asset to a train set. I can't see any reason to glue it together if you are using it on a flat, hard surface with a battery train.

When set up, this High Level Expansion gives your wooden railway a rare opportunity to get off the ground. My son has forever been trying to build multi-level track, using wooden blocks or Lego, and I hoped this would give him a more robust way of doing so. It is about halfway there. When set up, it looks great. The problem is it doesn't take much to knock it down.

The supporting pillars are made from two thin pieces of wood, with wooden blocks screwed to them at 90 degrees, upon which the track rests. Some thought has been given to how this should work; just above the track rests, are plastic teeth, which grip the track when it is pushed into place. The problem is that the wood used is cheap, and the screws holding it together don't bite very well, so the track rests can spin around. The plates with the plastic teeth then slip, and end up underneath the support block, where they are useless. I have had to superglue some of the pillars together, in order to prevent them falling from apart completely. Even when the product is built, with smaller children, who often lean on their toys when playing with them, the set falls down far too easily.

Even if the product were more robust, it would still be difficult for a small child to assemble. The various supports are different heights (in order to provide a gentle slope), but the variation is not obvious just by looking. My son cannot easily work out which pillar he should use next (made harder as some are made to be two-tier and some are not). You can of course stand the pillars next to one another, but it would have been simple to number them in the order that they are supposed to used to build the default structure.

This kit is great fun but it is difficult to put together and does fall to bits easily. I think you need to be prepared to glue it into place when you first buy it - if you do this it does take up a lot of room when you store it!

I normally like Bigjigs accessories but was disappointed with this. It is flimsily made, with uprights being made of plywood which is too weak to support the screws, wood and plastic vertical bits. One bit broke when we were putting the track together for the first time and another has broken after just a few days. The track is also complicated to put together and collapses easily. You can't get a smooth ride on it either. Overall poor.

My first attempt to build this with my son left me wishing I'd paid more heed to the reviews that said it was flimsy, but with a bit of persistence, I discovered that if you wedge the track into the 'teeth' of the support with a little bit of force, it grips beautifully. The resulting construction has been strong enough to move across the room in one piece without falling apart. Admittedly my three-year-old wouldn't be able to assemble it by himself, but with a bit of adult assistance it's perfectly possible to create quite a sturdy spiral from this set and he's loved watching his battery trains going round it.

Parents - don't bother with this. Wish I had taken more note of the other reviews. I have bought lots of BigJig toys (for wooden railway) and they have all been great and really reasonable compared to Brio and the like. This set however is a real dud, extremely fiddly to assemble and falls apart if you so much as breathe on it. A complete waste of money.
