On first look I though the box was quite small and worried the parts would be too small even though its aged 18 months plus. I like the design of the box. Its a true indication to what the toy looks like inside. The design of the toy itself is brilliant. My little boy was easily able to hold all the parts. My little boy found it very easy to play with and understood the concept of the toy also. Being able to separate and join the parts together was his favourite part. He literally spent hours joining and separating the parts. It seemed to give him a sense of great confidence he could do it by himself. We played with the train together and tried to play scenarios but he was happy enough making them move and clip together.  My son knew what elephants did and this tied in so he now gets the elephant and makes the noise and trunk action. My son could not clip this together at first but made him determined because he wanted to change the order around. And once he could do it he spent hours re arranging them and rolling them around. My son just seemed to really like this toy. I think because it looks more like his older siblings toys rather than his baby toys. My older children did enjoy playing with this toy with Ellis but they are out of the age range for this, just liked playing with their brother. The quality is excellent and durable and chunky toy. This was played with daily. My son liked clicking and unclicking the parts together.  I loved the confidence it gave my little boy and the excitement when he learnt to make it work. At first I did not think this was good value, but  having opened the box and seen the contents I would say yes. I would buy this and we have also bought other pieces from the range at our local zoo. I would recommend as good value for money, great toy that will help your toddler learn and develop. Its fun and combines animals, cars and motor skills into a toy that has been played with daily. Overall my little boy loves this toy. We take the elephant everywhere. Nicola Kelly – Ellis 20 Months

It looked a great toy and one which I knew she would really like. A really good design.  This was ideal for my daughter to hold and play with. My daughter really enjoyed how the train coaches can be separated and joined to make a complete train. She did like making up stories about animals on the train. Was good to also help her recognize all the animals. It took a little bit for her to figure out how it worked, but it was a good puzzle for her to figure out how to fit it together. This did keep her entertained as it’s problem solving and imaginative play. She did enjoy playing with this with her friends. This is a high quality toy. My daughter would play with this most days. She really liked the animals and the figures. I liked the fact this was a great toy to take on holiday. This toy works well and is well made. It is the price I would expect for this brand. I would buy this toy as my daughter enjoys playing with it. I would recommend as it is very good for child development. This is a fantastic toy. Stephanie Ward – Charlotte 20 Months

Nice packaging – not overly “packaged” and the colours and pictures on the box were attractive. At this age children really enjoy animals and trains / cars so those designs are attractive to my son. My son found this very easy to hold. He enjoyed attaching the various parts together but not so much in series.  He did enjoy separating and connecting the whole train together the for the first few times. He was not really interested in making stories up about the animals on the train, even though he enjoys imaginative play and loves stories. This toy did help him recognize all the animals.  This did help with hand eye coordination as he enjoyed being able to build the train. It did not keep him entertained for long as I think my son would have enjoyed a train with moving parts or noise. My son just played with this set at home on his own. The quality is very good and well made parts. My son did not play with this frequently – it isn’t his favourite amongst his toys. He did like the fact he could place things into the train. I really liked the good quality parts.  This is a high quality toy.  Personally I think it is expensive. I would not buy this as it is a little limited in what it offers and indeed my son played with it only very occasiaonnly. I would not recommend for the same reason. For my son’s age I didn’t think the toy brought out his imaginative play. Michelle Cheung – Arthur 2 Years 5 Months
