This was one of the Christmas presents for one of the children in our family last Christmas. He was 6 then and really enjoyed it! He really enjoyed the battery-operated function of it and used it many more times than the standard manually-push-the-train-along kind. The price was wonderful and he played with it many, many times - insisting on setting it up in his bedroom! Which is more than we can ask for in this day and age when kids play with a toy once and are on to the next!
These are dandy wooden put-together toys, sturdy and easy to roll, just the size for little hands, perfect for custom motor noises ("rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr", "dddddddddddddddddddddd," etc.) and I can't recommend them too highly. We got the tractor/trailer for our little wooden animals; these are just great. Jackpot!
I love Melissa & Doug toys. They're well made and safe for kids. This train set is of no exception!! My grandson loves playing with it. Follow the diagram or use your own design to assemble the track. I would highly recommend it.
