Toot! Toot! All aboard for a train full of fun, that comes to life at baby's touch! 5 circus themed blocks ride the train that baby controls! Pressing the smokestack gets it moving, with lights, music and plenty of block-bobbing, spinning, teeter-tottering action. As the train moves along, baby gets to see lots of activity inside the blocks, too!
We actually bought this second hand as my son loves trains and he loves animals so it was the perfect combination. The blocks fit on the carriages of the train and have little animals inside them. As you push the train the blocks move up and down and the train plays music so my 18 month old finds this very exciting. You can push the top of the train to make it move by itself but my son prefers to push it along by himself at the moment.
It is really well made solid plastic with no little bits, the bits that connect the trains together are solid and have no chance of falling off plus they are easy to connect too!! Considering we bought it second hand you wouldn't know as they are built to last so besides changing the batteries it was like buying a brand new toy.
The little blocks can be played with seperately too and we have different sets we have bought to go with his collection. Each block has something different inside and has some sort of surprise as to what it can do. Some of them have bits inside that move, or ones that rattle. My son's favourite is an animal one he has where you can make the animal spin around by turning the wheel on the top of the block.
There are also other peek a blocks toys that you can interchange the blocks between so you can get a bit of a collection going and they really are great toys!!
Random listing from 'Toys'...
This nifty little robot will sweep you away! It scuttles along on two brushes, and is powered by rapid vibrations from an offset motor.
Most suitable for children over 8 years old, and unsuitable at all for children under 3 years old due to small parts.
Contains all the parts required to build the robot, but you will need to supply a small cross-head (phillips) screwdriver and 2x 1.5V 'AAA' batteries.
