The concept of this product is great but there is a huge flaw in the road design - the curves are not double sided. This means it is not at all flexible as far as layout. It only fits together in one configuration which even I had trouble with using the diagram so my son had no chance. The train set is fine, not great quality but as I didn't expect it to be I wasn't disappointed. The road on the other had is better quality but is far less fun and may as well be a solid piece. Out of 6 curves 5 turn the same way! We also had a separate piece for train and track that loads/unloads with a crane but it couldn't fit into this set because the road section was on the wrong side! SUCH a shame this great idea is let down by BigJigs either not thinking of making the curves double sided or being too cheap to do so.

They say that you get what you pay for, and maybe that's where I went wrong with this product. Whilst the train set looks very good, unfortunately the quality is just not up to scratch.

quite a few of the pieces of track were splintered and needed to be sanded. I would not have expected this bearing in mind this is a toy for a youngish child and sanding should be a basic safety feature for any wooden toy. at least 4 pieces were broken on the first day and needed to be repaired - our child is not particularily rouch with his toys.

On the plus side it is very bright, and my son loves it. He is a little younger than the reccommended age, and does easily confuse the road and rail pieces when assembling track himself. If you are thinking of buying this product You may be better off getting a set that is wholly road or wholly rail.

A great buy. My son had a basic wooden train set and we wanted to expand it. He doesnt like all the little extras like people or trees etc which a lot of other sets seem to have, but he does like the vehicles.

This set is fab, compatible with other wooden sets and has the bonus of a thicker road track with tractor and gates as well as the train track. Its very durable and despite being dropped/thrown by 3yr old and 5yr old boys its kept in excellent condition.

Lovely set, worth every penny and the seller dispatched quickly and we could track the parcel throughout. Happy bunnies :)

Well made with lots of additional bits that came with the train set. All three of the grandchildren loved it.

I bought this for my sons 2nd birthday and he loves it! it is really well made and im sure it will be a firm favorite for years to come (as he is young he only plays with a small piece of the set but as he gets older we will add more to it thus keeping him interested and excited about it). This is a great value train set, well worth the money and is compatible with other sets too! delivery was quick too!
