What they say: "A beautiful, wooden, children's pull along toy train, painted in bright colours and featuring lots of different characters. Children have hours of fun rearranging the characters and stacking the blocks, or taking the characters for a train adventure! 

"This product is not only designed to give hours of fun, it also stimulates key motor skills in the child. The puzzle train is hand painted in non-toxic paint and made from chunky wood with pieces being the perfect size for little hands to grasp."

I love this product beyond words. It is a gorgeous toy made in a traditional manner with a modern twist. I just love it. I have already recommended this product to my friends and will be buying some of the other products from this company for presents at Christmas. I love the design of the toy which will provide endless hours of fun to my daughter.

How did this product make your life easier?     

My daughter loved it and do it provided me with a perfect distraction for her when I need to do some house work. She loves taking apart the various sections and rebuilding it. She also loves trailing it behind her on the wooden floors in our house. This product should be I'm everyone's toy box or even better on display in your child's nursery as ours now is!

Would you choose this product to win?

This product is made by hand and is beautiful to look at meaning it can be set out on display in a nursery which can't be said for many other toys. It is also a fantastic toy for children letting them build different characters and pull it along behind them. It is beautiful, functional and great fun! I will be buying other products in the range for presents this Christmas.

What changes would you make to this product?

Some of the parts are quite small and I was nervous of my daughter playing with it in case it was a potential choking hazard. That said if made bigger it might not be so beautiful so perhaps the suitability age needs to be reviewed to ensure safety. Other than that I love love love the product and will be buying other products in the range for presents.

This toy is such good quality, at first I just wanted to pop it on my baby's shelf in her bedroom as decoration as it looked so fantastic and like a thoughtfully bought gift, it's so well made and solid and all the pieces slot together nice and smoothly, it's absolutely gorgeous and would be an excellent first toy.

How did this product make your life easier?     

It's a very versatile toy as you can have it as room decor (I think anyway) play with the train itself, play with the animals or use it as the actually puzzle train itself. The colours helps with colour identification and the animals with animals names too. The wheels work well on hard floors or carpets.

It's nice these days to see toys that are made out of wood coming back into popularity, I used to work in a nursery so I know how important it is to have play linked in with learning. The bright colours of this toys make it really appealing and eye catching, very stimulating for younger children too.

What changes would you make to this product?

Nothing can be improved with this toy, we are so so pleased with it and we can't rate it enough. It would be nice to see a series of these toys and perhaps have them all link together? Perfect in so many ways and you know what this will last for a lifetime, be well played with and loved and even become an heirloom!
