Top positive review. Reviewed in the United States on July 16, My boy is 30 months and he loves this set. I have a few suggestions for people who buy it: First, you'll want to use epoxy or hot-melt glue to fasten the green parts to the engine. Although it's cool to be able to exchange these, in practice they just come off every time you try to lift it. Glue it and forget it.
The same goes with the gas station - it's better to glue it all up and keep it whole than to always be rebuilding it. Second, you will want more tracks, but Lego doesn't give you a huge choice in tracks.
You can get some more straight and curved pieces, but you'll soon discover that you need junctions or crossovers. Lego doesn't have this very worked out. If you want to go to the next level, you'll have to buy a number of different sets and put much more time and effort into designing a track configuration, which is good when the child is 4 or 5, I suppose. It's nice that the trains and trucks are compatible, so getting trucks is a good investment.
Finally, it works wonderfully with rechargeable batteries. One charge lasts three weeks at our house. It's best on a floor rather than carpet and stays together nicely. I highly recommend it for 2 years and up. Top critical review. Reviewed in the United States on August 2, We purchased this Lego set for our 4 yo grandson, who has other Lego blocks orginially used by our children. The set is labeled as appropriate for I must say that it would be an exceptional 2 yo who could put this thing together.
The instuctions are confusing because they show products not included in this set and require the purchase of other sets to complete what they show. Also, some of the blocks don't snap together securely so when you go to pick it up to move it, it falls apart. This is not a good value and a disappointment coming from a premier company like Lego.

Sort by: Newest Oldest. My two children got this train set from Santa this year. At 5 and 2 they each love it! The train can hook up with a lot of the lego wagons and they will move around on the track with the train I did find myself wanting more track In the end I bought a couple of boxes of straight and curved track It is hard to find something that my kids a girl and a boy both enjoy that they don't fight over and this toy has been well worth the money spent for that reason alone.
It's expensive, but my kids really do love this lego set. We've combined it with some other Lego duplo sets e. They love having the train run on its on unlike the Thomas sets, which have to be pushed , and "filling it up". I like how Lego makes everything fit; for example, the truck's wheels also fit on the track so the train can push the truck around the tracks. It's also easy to put Thomas the Train's body on the front part of this set's electric train engine, and make "Electro-Thomas".
I love this toy, my daughter loves this toy, her friends love this toy, the boys from across the street love this toy. I actually have not yet met a single person who did not think this train set was simply awesome. My daughter loves that she can put this together with me - instead of just watching me do it or doing it herself.
She loves the sounds the locomotive makes - including the gurgling sound when the locomotive is refueled. If you buy some of the extensions - bridges, etc. My toddler loves using this train set and can assemble them himself. We got these, along with sets of straight and curved rails, for him at Christmas. The tracks work well, craftsmanship is good, and is everything you would expect from the Lego brand. So if your little one's attention has wandered, the train doesn't keep running all afternoon big battery saver.
One person found this helpful. We were looking for a train set for our son. This was a perfect combination for him as he also loves his Duplos. The only drawback to this set is that despite its numerous pieces, you really can only construct two designs. To have more variety of track layouts, you have to purchase extra kits.
We plan to purchase those for his birthday. I would recommend this to anyone who has children that love playing Duplos and trains.
We bought this toy for my daughter's second birthday. It's been a success, as she plays with it every single week, if not every day. The track parts have a lot of slack and fit like a puzzle, making it very easy to put together. My daughter found it difficult to assemble the blocks at first, but a few months later, she does it herself.
Easy enough to use from 1 year old. When the train falls, hits any object or when you pick it up, it stops. The train will also stop on its own after a couple of minutes. So it makes it safe and does not drain the battery for hours. My daughter loves to run it off-track in the living room.
The train will go until it hits a wall, lots of fun! The train had a small hole for gas at the top, and when the pump is entered in the hole, the train does a funny "gloop gloop" sound. My daughter loves it! And it's been good to help her practice her fine motor skills. Bought this set for my 2 year old. Great train set, lots of track and accessories.
Set is a bit advanced for a 2 year old as the pieces come apart easily, but such is the nature of Duplo. LEGO quality and design, you get what you pay for here. Highly recommended for the kids and dad to play with.
The train set is expensive but its worth the money expecally if you have a kid that loves trains and loves to play with lego duplo blocks! Get fast answers from reviewers.
