Rated 5 out of 5 by from My son loves this train My son is a 3 1/2. He 1st played with this train in therapy. Fell in love with it instantly. However that was not the only reason I bought him one of his own. He is learning as he plays. We work on his colors, shapes and play games that help improve upon his communication and social skills. I am very pleased with this purchase. It is solid construction and looks exactly like the picture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great toy! I purchased this for my grandson for Christmas so he hasn't actually received it yet but I know he is going to really enjoy playing with it. The colors are bright & with his name engraved it will mean even more as he gets older. I love all of Melissa & Doug's items. Great quality!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute design, bothersome issues While this is cute in theory, it has its downsides. The first, and most frustrating for my son, is that the peg spacing isn't the same on all cars. If I remember right, the two-hole pegs don't fit on the engine, which frustrates my son to no end. The other issue that bothers me is that when the blocks knock together, paint transfers from one to another. For example, the yellow roof of the engine is now covered in marks of color from other blocks. While that doesn't reduce the play value, it does make this a toy that I won't save to hand down to future generations. Also don't love that it's made in China.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great train This is a great Melissa and Doug product. My daughter enjoys pulling it around the house as a train, building it with the blocks, and naming the colors of the blocks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great toy Bought for Christmas. All three kids love it. It is their favourite toy. They love pulling it, stacking all the pieces and making a tower. The one toy that they all play with, together and don't fight over.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Toy! My parents bought this train for my son when he was a little over 12 mos. He's never been all that interested in playing with toys, but this one gets the most attention from him. He can't stack the blocks in order yet, but he loves to take them on and off the pegs and has just recently realized that he can pull the train around the room. We've had it for about a year and it's held his interest and taken a lot of abuse. Overall this has been a very durable, high-quality toy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not made in USA Purchased this item for two of my nephews. I thought it would be fun and educational for them. Product looks great, but I was disappointed to find a note in the gift reporting it was quality tested to meet all requirements of the USA, but the items were Made IN China.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All aboard the playtime express! My son LOVES this train set. Not only is it easy to assemble but it allows him to be creative with how he stacks the blocks. It also has really helped him learn color recognition by naming the colors of each block as he places it on the train. I highly recommend this toy to anyone who has a child who loves to build and disassemble things and who loves to be creative.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 2 year olds favorite toy! Purchased this for my son about 6 months ago when he was 2 and a half, it has been his favorite toy now for 6 months. He plays with this toy often. I don't see him growing out of it or becoming board with it anytime soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our new go-to gift! My daughter is 13 months, and LOVES this train. The pieces all go in a certain order, which she obviously doesn't know, but I that's why this is such a great toy - she will be able to use it for a long time! Now she puts the blocks off and on, and "VRRRMMMs" around the house with one section at a time. It's great for her little motor skills!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Train loving girl We use this product to teach our daughter shapes, and puzzle solving skills. The colors and concept of a train with the shapes is great. She loves trains. No complaints about the product, yet. Hopefully none in the future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun Toy Our son got this when he was 2 years old. He was definitely TOO young for it at the time. Now that he is 4 1/2, he's played with it for well over a year and loved it! The only issue we have had is the blue peg fell off the one piece to hook the cars together and I'm not sure where it went...... Hubby didn't glue it right away and now we're missing pieces since we were down a whole "car" for awhile.... I WOULD STILL HIGHLY RECOMEND THIS TOY!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My One Yr Old LOVES this! My son got this for his first birthday...he is now 14mos. and still loves it. He is just starting to learn how to put the pieces back on the pegs. I love to watch him learn! Great quality and simple enough for kids of all ages to enjoy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cool Train This train has nice solid construction and fun colors. Great as a gift for a young child who loves trains before they move up to pulling trains along a track.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very entertaining My two year old loves this train. He can sit for hours rearranging the blocks. My only problem with this toy was my son was able to pull out some of the wooden pegs for the blocks. I had re-glue them into the holes. I have never had a quality issue with Melissa and Doug toys in the past. I know they are all handmade so I assume someone was just having a bad glue day. We have given this toy as a gift in the past and that train was secure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Cute! Recieved in the mail today and the train is too cute. Looks to be very durable and that it would last for a very long time. Bought this for my son's upcoming 2nd Birthday. I know he's going to love it and its bright colors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE THIS TOY! We use this train on our play room window sill. It looks perfect from outside..even though it rarely stays there. My two year old loves to take it down and completely remove all the pieces. Then put it back together.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like it, but... My son really likes this train. He likes playing with the blocks, the colors are appealing, and I like that it helps his fine motor skills. Unfortunately one of the pegs pulled out of the last car though, and next thing I knew he was chewing on glue. Sigh. What can you expect when it's made in China? I would still recommend this toy, with the assumption that it was a fluke.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Toy, Tons of Fun This is one of those toys where I can play with my 1 1/2 year old or let him be and he will have fun either way. This toy is excellent while I make dinner. He just sits on the kitchen floor and plays "choo choo". Its great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Stacking Train Wonderful toy train. My son loves to change it all around and come up with different train ideas. It also helped with colors since they are so vibrant. And also helping with shapes. He has had this for over a year and he still plays with it. He will be 2-1/2 yrs and his little brother (10mons) is now playing with it. We will be able to store it and use it for our grandchildren.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic and essential! My two year old son adores this train! He puts it on the kitchen table or coffee table and pretends to go on a journey, and he loves stacking the blocks. A must have for toddlers at a great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful toy! My toddler loves this train. He likes to take the blocks off the train and use them on their own, then stack them back onto the train to put it away. He also practices saying "train", "woot woot" whenever he sees this train. Very cute toy!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not so much My boys could never get the train back togethter the way it was supposed to go. Didn't really care for this one and then we lost the parts. Didn't have much fun with it form the begining. They liked that it was a train but became eaisly frustrated with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful My 18mo old son loves this train, of all of his hundreds of toys he probably plays with this for the longest period of time on his own. He loves to make the train, but also loves just stacking the blocks! There are lots of ways to use this and of course it is very durable. Can't wait til christmas to get some more melissa and doug items.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Got present too late in age This is a wonderfully built toy and colorful! My son, unfortunately, received this at an age where he was uninterested in it. He was already doing 24 piece puzzles and this was too easy for him...but he did enjoy it sporadically. I plan to keep this toy for my grandchildren someday. I plan on keeping ALL of Melissa & Doug products for my grandchildren. =)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful toy A child can do so much with this toy. It's great for fine motor development and pretend play. An older child can sort the blocks by color and shape. It promotes imagination and creativity and is a good toy for interaction between a child and parent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great toy for many years! This is a great toy and will last many years. Bought one 6 years ago and it has been played with often and still looks the same, except for some marks where my girls thought they were teething toys! I buy this for all of my friends kids because I know it is a great toy!!!
