My 3 year old enjoy the train set, it was a good purchase. But as a note, we bought a train table and some of the layouts for the train won't fit on the table. Don't let that stop you from buying the train, but when buying a table, look for one without sides. Just allows for more designs of the tracks.
I purchased this garage for my 4 year old son. Assembly was a bit of a pain. The instructions aren't overly clear, and although it's not rocket science, there are a few types of pieces (the black parking spots, and the blue lift shaft) that have subtle differences. If you start applying stickers, as the instructions suggest, without noticing the subtleties you'll need to remove them and reapply. We spent more time fixing mistakes than actually building the thing. The build of the garage is pretty good. I think it will survive a four year old abuse for quite a while. That said, a the pieces are easily detached. My son keeps removing all the red barriers, and occasionally the blue ramps fall detach from the garage. Eventually I'm sure we'll loose some pieces. Does it work with other small cars? Yes and no. I purchased a set of Matchbook cars. Some of them are fairly successful at racing down the ramps others are not. There divider between the two lanes has open spots (allowing cars to change lanes?) Quite a few cars consistently get stopped as that partially change lanes and hit a barrier. It actually happens to all cars, but some more than others. Can I park a lot of cars? No. Sadly, I think the most unfortunate part of the design is that you can't park cars. Most of the parking spots have a slight tilt to them, causing the cars to roll into the 'racing' lane. And even if they don't, most cars are long enough to interfere with the racing. So I had to find another spot to organize my son's cars. Overall though, the build is pretty solid, it looks good, and my son enjoys using it so it's still a success. I imagine there are other garages out there that do better though.
We bought this for our grandson and we were there when he opened the set. Initially overwhelmed with the number of pieces, he could not contain his excitement. Mommy could not open the wrapped track/cars/etc. fast enough. She picked one of the designs to copy and only built a portion of the design due to space limitations--and other packages to be opened. This will be enough track to take him several years into train building.
I bought this toy set for my 3year old grandson. It is made out of the best quality of Wood & will last him a lifetime (if he doesn't loose it) ;) the pieces of each truck, car, enloader & cement truck come in 3 pieces each & has to be stacked together. It's very educational as well because the child has to know the colors & shapes of each individual piece. My grandson plays with this set way more than l ever thought he would because he has a ton of other toys! The quality is so well made and designed that if he was to keep it, It would last until he had children and could give it to them! My husband and l both really loved this toy set so much, We are ordering two more, for our other two grandsons. If this company makes anything for little girls l would definitely purchase that as well. You always hear, they just don't make toys like they did in the good ole days! Well this Toy set is something that You will think was made in the good ole days! Loved this Toy Set as lm sure you can tell from my review! I would highly recommend this toy set to anyone and everyone. You will not be disappointed.
