My son absolutely loves his new train set and my wife loves the huge storage space the trundle provides. My son is a bit on the young side (3rd birthday present) for this set as his little arms can't reach the inner track but has no problems playing with the outer tracks and moving the trains on the upper level of the double decker bridge so he will have many years of enjoyment as he grows into it. It's also great that it is Thomas and Friends compatible as he has a bunch of Thomas and his friends' trains that he can use. The table was a breeze to set up. The tracks took a little bit longer to set up but not as long as I expected. I love the wooden pieces and I know they will last a long time. Of course nothing in this world is perfect and this set is no exception but what complaints I have are minor. The helicopter is not balanced well enough. The base of it needs to be moved back a bit as the helicopter tends to tip backwards. The other issue I have is with the gas station. It falls apart when you try to move it around but I guess a bit of glue will fix that.

Excellent product for its price
I got this set for my 2 year old son. Easy to install... I did it alone. He loves Thomas and already had some trains and the table is compatible with them, he plays on it for hours and really enjoys it. The trunk underneath is perfect because we stored in it a lot of his cars, trains and toys. I would say is the best toy that we have gotten for him. He is so extremely happy with it and I am too. Excellent product for its price!! The only downsize is that we finished the assembly of the table and then we realized that the manufacturer had included a set of plastic rings in case the trunk wouldn't fit under the table (which was the case) so I had to start again and one of the screws was already worn off so I couldn't fix it.. the only issue with this is that the drawer can only be opened on one side, which doesn't matter to me anyway.If you get this table check very well all the pieces included and read well the directions.
Big hit with the grandson!
Many of the other reviews sum it up pretty well. A few notes: 1. It is heavy. The FedEx driver probably didn't enjoy delivering this. One person can move it around, but I'd recommend two. 2. The table and drawer go together quickly and easily. 3. Small Philips screwdriver needed. The tracks, bridges and a few of the props need to be assembled and will take a little while (2 hours?). The directions are horrible, but enough to get you started. 4. Will provide hours of entertainment for the kids playing with it :) In my opinion, well worth the money.
There was a piece of the train track missing so the set was incomplete unfortunately. Otherwise, it was time consuming putting together but our son enjoys it very much. Would be nice if all pieces were included for the price we paid for it.
We bought this table for our 2 1/2 year old. While he loves it, the grownups have some gripes about it. This is supposed to be a train set and it only comes with 3 train cars and the train cars don't stay on the tracks well. The cars work better on the tracks. Also the crane hook is hard to grab onto the pieces with. Possibly a magnet should have been used instead of the hook. The track also slides around a lot and doesn't stay level for the kids to use. The storage drawer is fantastic with plenty of storage room inside. Overall our son loves it and that is what is important. Just wish that for the amount of money you spend on it that it worked a little bit better.
One side of the table arrived broken in the middle.. Few pieces of the accessories were missing. I did not call yet to request a replacement. The box arrived in the states and it had all tapes around the edges which means that the box was previously opened or for some reason ripped. The table was a gift for my grand kids in Canada. I hope I get a replacement without problems. Otherwise the table looks nice and my twin three years old grand kids liked it.
Broken and missing pieces on arrival
First let me say that I am a HUGE Kidscraft fan! We have had several kitchens, art tables etc etc and their quality is unbeatable. I have an 11 yr daughter and three boys 9, 7 and 3 who have used their products for years. So, I'm not sure what happened with this product. Maybe we just u fortunately had bad luck and received a damaged piece. I loved how the table went together with the brackets. But our unfortunately had bent brackets and a broken support rail with a stripped screw. The wood was broken in half. I had to hammer the brackets back straight and pry other ones out. I had my own wood screw I was able to use to fix the broken part and I used wood glue to stabilize the broken wood. But, then it just kept coming. We were missing the entire mountain piece. The fire station part was broken at the joint and I had to wood glue that as well and the paint was missing on many of the pieces. The 3 pieces that had the plastic ball joints were snapped off so we couldn't even connect them. My boys were so excited and begged me not to return it and they are building it in their own way which they enjoy more than directions anyway, but I pad way too much for it to receive such quality. I will continue to buy Kids raft and chalk this up to a very unfortunate experience.
The absolute worst experience and quality
First off this was the worst to put together with my very handy husband who builds things! The instructions are useless, just black and white pictures with no labeling. All the pieces should have been labeled and correspond with the instructions. We had to literally figure everything out on our own. Pieces are not flush and in poor quality. I will not return this because we bought for our son's birthday and it was too much trouble to put together but I would say this is way overpriced!
We have an old kidkraft train table, about 4 years old and it's in better shape and quality of this one.
