After all of his gifts were opened, he said “I’m done – let’s go play with the train” He even told us he didn’t want cake or ice cream, he just wanted to play with his train set! His bubbles, and other toys didn’t keep his attention, about every 5 minutes like clockwork he was back at the train set staring at the box.
In one of the few minute breaks he was distracted, I took the new Dinosaur Train set and assembled it in his room. I just finished when he came running in his room with his friends. I didn’t quite have the tunnel assembled yet, but the train was running around the track and the conductor station was standing. (I was later informed he was demanding a train station recently – so this was perfect!)
To say my nephew loves it – would be an understatement. Check out the picture below my sister text me the next night – he refused to go to bed because he was playing with his new train. I also was informed this weekend that he’s played with it so much that he’s already ran through one set of batteries!
The train set, station, and tunnel are super easy for plug and play – even the train is easy to assemble. It does require a screw driver to put the batteries in – and scissors will be required to get everything out of the box. As much as the kids want to help with this part – that’s more the parent’s/aunt’s/uncle’s/grandparent’s job.
One thing we found out as he tried to add on every train car he has to the train (he has a ton of them) – the motorized train will NOT pull them all. The toy has a motor that handles a few of the train cars, so don’t overload it. We have a large collection of cars, probably more than the 8 feet of track so once he knew how many he can use he stuck with it.
He also loves the tunnels – they’re a simple addition, but he loves driving through tunnels and it’s super neat that his train can now too!
