We bought this for our 2 1/2 year old who is crazy about Thomas. The Thomas wooden track sets are really expensive, but this is compatible with the Thomas wooden engines (as well as coming with everything you need to start out), so we bought the track and have bought the wooden Thomas trains individually over time. You can also use these track sets to expand on your existing wooden Thomas tracks or vice versa (at least thats what the salesman told me when we bought it), but we haven't needed to expand as yet. Our toddler loves this train set and it offers a lot of play value for the money.

I bought this as a birthday present for my nephew, he loves it! He had the beginner brio train set and I bought this so he had lots more track to put together. I think it is really good that the bigjigs train sets and accessories are compatible with the brio train sets.

My Son had this set for his 3rd birthday and could piece it together much better then the Thomas plastic set which we had to put away for a year. Since we have added track, sheds, tunnels and bridges at birthday's and Christmas, refreshing his interest in the set. We use it with Thomas motorised trains too - lots of fun! We also added a set from a well known supermarket which was very cheap and compatable.

This toy has made a small boy of 2 years old very happy. Hours of play value, stimulates the imagination, what more can you ask for?

We have started adding to the set now because it is so good.

We bought this train set for our son, who has not turned 2 yet. He loves it and plays with it almost every day.
He's not so keen on the little houses and trees that come with it, but has lots of fun building the track and playing with the train.

It's a great starter set and we're very happy with our purchase.

I bought this an an extension set for the track we already had; It is a fine product, the bridge is very sturdy and it has already survived various assaults from my nephew. Do not get fooled by the "43 pieces" bit, you will not get 43 pieces of track, most of these are trees, figures, houses that are quite useless.

My grandson apparently had to be forceably removed from his doctor's surgery because they have this train set, so we were asked to buy it for his birthday.
When he saw that in the boring box there was another box......and in that rather boring brown box.... was a CHOO CHOO, he shouted it out and jumped right up in the air twice!
He loves his choo choo, even if he doesn't quite get that the train should go round the track! Backwards and forwards was fine too, and the cars go on the track. I didn't think the carraiges stayed on all that well when hooked up by magnet.
The funniest thing was when my grandson perched himself on the last carraige - I think it is too small for that! This particular set was requested because you can expand it.

If your looking for this type of toy for your child or grandchild i think you would be very impressed with this set, its easy jigsaw like track construction is so simple to join together that most children once shown would easily assemble it.

There really isn't anything i can say against it, simple..relatively safe being made from wood...we have a grandson who is nearly 2yrs old and he can assemble this on his own and plays with it for hours.

If there's one thing i would criticize it would be the quality of wood used to make it...perhaps the wood could e better quality, our grandson tripped over something, fell on a section of the track and snapped the joint!, other than that...very good value.

Great first train set for my twin granddaughters. It is designed to grow with them (also purchased extension set) and will give them many happy hours of creative play. There are no sharp edges or easily broken parts.
The product was well described and purports to be compatible with other similar wooden tracks.
I have previously purchased ride-ons in the shape of zebra and giraffe from Bigjigs and the twins love them. You can also use the sides of the ride-ons as posting boxes for different shapes. Colours are good and conform to regulations.

bought this for gransons second birthday - he's had great fun with it. the day he had it another grandson age 7 was here and they both spent ages playing together with it. the track and trains/cars are very robust and i'm sure will give fun for a long while to go. grandson was puzzled that there was no "on/off" switch initially!! with so many toys being battery powered but soon realised there was as much fun to be had making his own train and car noises and making vehicles go where he wants them. i'm sure at some point we'll be buying more pieces to go with this and it will become one of the toys that endure.
