My son loves this toy! He can press the button on the truck for hours. He is entertained with all the twist an turns of the garage. I like this better then other race tracks where he has to stand. Those weren't as stable. And the different cars make noise and teaches him.
My almost 2 year old son got this toy for Christmas and for the most part he likes it. The car lift on the side gets very easily stuck and is super jerky which leads my son to get very upset, understandably. Then at the top of the lift there is a lazy Susan type device that tilts up to send your car down the "ramp". Well it lifts when it wants to but not high enough to give the car the momentum it needs to go down the "ramp." I say "ramp" because the degree of incline isn't high enough to actually get the cars to go down by themselves. It works maybe 1 out of every 10 times you try. However it is a sturdy toy. My son gets very easily frustrated with the toy and it has been whacked and tossed a couple times and hasn't broke yet. While it's somewhat educational there are other toys that work better. I glad I didn't spend my own money on this toy I would have brought it right back because there are toys out there that are far more educational and functional as well.
This track is adorable. We previously purchased the Treehouse animal set and connected them. My daughter loves this. The tow truck is her new favorite. The best thing about these sets is getting her a new animal or vehicle makes it a whole new toy for weeks.
My son takes the garage and learns
how the cars move along the track. It helps him focus on how
long the car takes to reach a certain point. We connected the
garage and airport and he loves it.
