Imaginations will be chugging along with the Playmobil 1.2.3 My First Railway. Little engineers can set up the track pieces in multiple configurations, and send the train and passengers along on all sorts of adventures.
If you use just the eight curved tracks, you can set up a circular railway. If you add the straight track and the level crossing, you'll have an oval track. Or the train track doesn't have to connect at all. Attach the two ramps at either end of the track.
Once the train track is set up, accessorize the track with a tunnel, flowers, a railway signal, and animals. Get the three passengers ready to board the train, and place the train conductor in the driver's seat. The cargo car can help deliver a package, a mail bag, and a suitcase. As kids push the train around the track, the wheels and coupling bar really roll and move.
One of the things we like about this train set is the open-ended construction play. And once kids have set up their train just the way they want it, the possibilities for open-ended play continue. It's easy for small hands to hold and push the train, and kids will enjoy making up all sorts of travel stories for the Playmobil figures.
The Playmobil 1.2.3 My First Railway is for ages 1.5 and up.
