Simple and basic, this 38-piece train track is perfect for beginners around the ages of 3 and up. Featuring a booklet of instructions, the tracks are meant to form a figure 8 when completely laid out; however, a bridge can change the track's direction, and kids can run with their imaginations to create something entirely different. Also included are trees, buildings, townspeople, a fire truck, and a bulldozer; all things indicative of an active, imaginative community.
Titled with "bucket" because of the bin it's stored in, this is a unique train set that features 56-pieces of winding track. It's original because the tracks ascend and descend over mountain ranges, complete with waterfalls, lakes, and beautiful foliage. There are also populated areas with townspeople, buildings, and airports. Or quiet reserves with trees, rocky scenery, and small canyons. This is definitely a train set that will inspire a child's already flourishing imagination!
With a table for storage and display of trains, this toy is great for interconnecting other sets and creating larger, more extensive tracks. There are 3 storage bins to slide under the table, as well as trains, carriers, people, signs, trees, and buildings to make playtime interesting. There are also bridges and multiple avenues of cool scenery for trains to journey through on the way to their station.
