Now your young train engineer can take an elephant and a tiger to the zoo or the circus, with a kid-powered, wooden engine and 2 animal carrier cars. Eight pieces of circular track are a great way to start a wooden railway set or perfect to add to an existing Melissa & Doug train layout. Also compatible with other popular wooden railway systems.
Great item either by itself or as an addition to a larger set. Perfect beginner set. We had a partial set and got this for a birthday and to add to a bigger set that was incomplete. Very loved already, because we can make a circle track OR combine with the others for great combinations. The train is fun, too, especially with the little fun animals.
This is a Christmas present. So I will have to wait and see the child's reaction, but looks like a great starter set for 21 month old. Melissa and Doug product you can not really go wrong. Nice set because you can always add onto it as the child grows and interest grows in train set. All Aboard.
I just received it and checked the pieces out before boxing up to hold until Christmas. I liked all the pieces, the tracks looked nice. It's a great deal if you can find it for sale here at target (I got it 30% during a toy sale) or over at amazon. I think it would be a great addition to a train set considering the animal cars are sturdy. I also bought the farm animal set.
