Is The Chuggington Interactive Railway All Around Chuggington Set Worth Buying For Your Child?
At over 4 feet wide, it’s important to note that this is a relatively big train set (made even bigger if you choose to combine it with other elements from the Chuggington range). This makes it fun for kids who can really get involved in the railway operations, but it does mean you’ll need a large play area for it.
As for the kind of kids this toy will suit, it’s designed for ages three and above, and will especially appeal to those who watch the TV show and love the characters. It’s easy to use, as the trains are propelled by hands and the set automatically recognizes certain trains passing through. However, you may need to spend some time helping young kids to put the track pieces together correctly.
The Chuggington railway set brings the famous toys to life. At certain points in the track, the set will recognize the engine passing through, activating a number of unique features. Kids can also play with other engines who recognize each other and make sounds or say phrases. Although only one engine comes in this kit, it will work with all other Chuggington engines.
The Interactive All Around Chuggington Set is just one element of a much bigger world. If your child really enjoys playing with this set, then there’s plenty of opportunity for some more excellent gifts in future. The fact that they all work together makes this a unique range to start collecting.
The main downside to this product is the fact that it uses 11 AA batteries. Thankfully they are already included, and shouldn’t run down too quickly since they’re only used when the trains pass through at certain points (the set doesn’t constantly require power to function). Some parents have also commented on the fact that the connected track does come apart a little easily when compared to wooden train tracks.
At $65, the Chuggington Interactive Railway All Around Chuggington Set isn’t exactly cheap, but for kids who love the TV show, this is the perfect gift to keep them happy.
