My daughter had requested a Brio set for my granddaughter for Christmas but when I saw this and read the reviews, I decided to take a chance and save some $$. I was fearful that the gift would be rejected or I would be told it was inferior, but this was not the case at all. My 2 3/4 year old granddaughter loves playing with this set and it is just the right size with just the right amount of detail to make it interesting. It is interchangeable with the more expensive Brio set should we want to add some of those pieces but we are quite satisfied with the Melissa and Doug.
Love this train set and the price was unbelievable. I know some reviews said that some of the pieces or trains were not high quality, but I found them to be really good. It's not quite Thomas, but I wouldn't pay over *** for the entire Thomas set. This is a great deal (and the Thomas trains work fine on it).
I bought this train set for my grandson. He loves the set, it is easy for him, he is 3, to assist in putting this together. Easy to take down and put away. This is NOT a flimsy wood set. I would recommend.
We bought this at the gift shop in Stone Mountain, Ga. and we just had more fun with it. Our son really enjoyed it! (As well as the other products we've purchased from Melissa and Doug!)
