This is going to be my 1st review, iv decided to review one of Harry's favourite toys that he had for Christmas from me and his Daddy.
Since hes been born his Daddy has been waiting for the day to come that he can sit down and play with a train set with Harry, and this Christmas we thought he would be the right age.
We looked around on a few sites and toy shops and noticed they all seemed a bit too plastic and too old for his age, we wanted a more classic looking one. But then we found this lovely Bigjigs train set on the Play.com website. The price was brilliant £14.99 (and i had a 10% discount code) so i ordered it.
Come Christmas day it was wrapped and it was one of the largest presents there so he kept it until last. When he opened it I'm not going to lie, he didn't have a clue what it was, even though the picture on the box is clear, i was imagining in his head he was saying 'yh thanks for this nice colourful box, this will come in handy'
Boxing day when all the hype of Christmas day had dyed down slightly Harry and Daddy sat and un-boxed the train set, i don't no who was more excited.
The set we brought is the Bigjigs Wooden Rail: Figure of Eight Train Set (43 pieces)
Harry has loved this and without fail has had us sitting playing with it with him every day.
You can make the obvious figure 8 track as on the box, but you can also do your own thing, Harry likes us to make a circle track. The trains are magnetic so stay together nicely, and it comes with a family of people, houses, some trees, little signs and cars.
We may be breaking the rules a little as it is advised for age 3-8 (Harry's nearly 2) but we supervise him and used our own common sense with our child and we think its perfect for him.
|excuse the mess!|
I would say the only problem we have had is the box is a little flimsy for the wooden track to be put back into once you have finished with it but that's no big problem as we have now got a little storage box that we put the track in when we are finished now.
I would say if your child enjoys imaginative playing, with cars and such like then this is perfect, even if you have a little girl, Bigjigs do a 'fairy train set' that's very cute.
Over all the price is great, the quality is brill and its something that will grow with him, he will have alot of use out of this and many hours of fun, and so will his Daddy.
* thought i should add that we purchased this with our own money and have not been paid in anyway to give this review its all our own opinions :)
