What It Is
The Fairy Figure of Eight Train Set comes with 40 wooden pieces that lets kids build a figure eight of track with a bridge. There are 12 curved pieces of track, two straight pieces, and two bridge pieces. This train set also comes with one wooden train engine and two train cars, three wooden houses, several wooden tree pieces, two wooden train crossing signs, and three wooden fairy figures. The train engine and train cars stick together via magnets, so kids can push the train engine along the track and the engine will pull the train cars behind it. This set is compatible with other wooden rail systems so kids can create an even bigger track.
Why It’s Fun
This is a classic-looking wooden train set that will engage kids in lots of imaginative play. The pieces are sturdy and chunky, making it easy for young kids to fit the track pieces together and pick up the accessories as they play. The addition of fairies complements a popular play theme.
Who It’s For
The Fairy Figure of Eight Train Set is for ages 3–8.
What To Be Aware Of
It took us about 10 minutes to set up. There aren't step-by-step instructions, just a picture of the track pieces labeled with letters. However, the track pieces themselves do not have letters on them, so kids will have to determine where the pieces go by matching their shapes with the picture.
Also available is a more boy-themed Figure of Eight Train Set.
