1. When we saw the advert for this on tv, we thought it looked like a brilliant toy for our 2 year old's Christmas present.
We opened it up on Christmas eve and built it for the first time. It wasn't the easiest thing to put together, and you need to work out where the stickers go. But after 20 minutes, it was good to go.
I must admit, I thought it was pretty disappointing in comparison to what I thought it was going to be. This is basically just a plastic track with a few possible positional variations. The animals that you get with it are the most annoying little things ever. They just start singing at random times and are motion activated. So if you bump into the toy box at night and theyre switched on, they all start singing at the top of their voices. Just as well they can all be turned off with the small switch underneath them.
The animals have to be manually pushed around the track too. I was expecting a little bit of automation here. As the animals pass over the different "zones" of the playset, they sing accordingly.
Our two year old kind of likes it, although she doesnt play with it a lot. Like me, she really likes the look of it in the TV advert, but seems a little disappointed with it in real life.
2. Bought this for my 14 month old at Christmas. I feel she was a bit young for it and didn't show much interest until now, except for trying to stand on it (she's 18 months now). I wasn't bothered that she wasn't intested because I knew she would eventually. I think it's maybe for 2 year olds and above. The actual track I think it's great, good quality and I play with it :)
