I gave this as a gift to me 3 year old Grand-Nephew and he was thrilled beyond belief with it. He love trucks and cars and this was as a perfect a gift as it could be. I recommend it highly. The price was great. Thank you Overstock for coming threw again. 5 Stars isn't enough for this item
This was a Christmas present for my 5 year old grandson. He loves it. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because at first, one car always won. After my son adjusted the bottom of the cars where they get power from the track, it helped considerably. Unless you are savvy enough to do this, the inequity could be a problem. Also, for a child who is young, it requires an adult to assemble the track. I still would recommend this race track for beginner level racers.
As is usually true for Melissa and Doug merchandise, the product was of an excellent quality, that I think will stand up for a long time to come. I have two boys, and almost 3-year-old and a 4-and-a-half year-old, and both love the set. We bought this as a Christmas present for the younger boy, who is in love with trains currently, and he has played with it non-stop since he opened it (in fact, it took over 90 minutes until we distracted him enough to get him to open his second present on Christmas morning). The set has already been smothered in play doh (fairly easily cleaned off, considering), held up the four-year-old standing on the bridge piece, and uncountable tug of wars with the pieces connected and twisting around each other. The set shows no effects of any of these events. Unlike many wooden train sets, the pegs are part of the pieces, and not simply pegs placed into too-large holes that will fall out and be lost (after being choking hazards) during the first day of use.
