We purchased this track set as a birthday gift for our son's 1st birthday, and he loves it. It's all he plays with all day long! I'm actually surprised to see many of the negative reviews! Yes, the bridge will fall over if it gets pushed, I think that this kind of bridge tends to do that. Also, if you put a straight track piece next to the hill, the train should stay on the tracks much better than hitting a curve right away when it's at peak momentum.

As far as the train not fitting under the bridge: what we found is that when you set it up on a carpeted area, the bridge is lower so it doesn't fit. If you set it up on a hard surface, then it fits just fine.

We did find that the train doesn't run the smoothest when pushing it around the curves, but we'd totally forgotten about it after using it repeatedly, so it doesn't bother us, really.

Basically, my family plays with this set constantly and we would buy it all over again any time.

I like the idea of this set, but many little frustrations ruined the experience for my 2-yr-old son and I.

1. The 2 gates you see pictured break away from the buildings very easily and are thus entirely useless.

2. The train included can not physically climb the hills without either coming off the track or uncoupling. This is due to its shape. The cars either bump against each other or grind against the track.

3. All of the wheels have sketchy alignment and sometimes stick. So rather than whizzing around the track, the train must be dragged and more often than not derails around curves.

4. The wooden track has noticeable burrs where it's been cut, and small pieces chip off.

5. As others have said, the train doesn't fit under the bridge! It *barely* clears the elevated wooden track, but the bridge has additional plastic hanging below on which to get completely stuck.

On the plus side, the train station has very nice colourful details painted on its sides - bricks, windows and such - which don't appear in any of the pictures on the box. That was a pleasant surprise. So I'd say, if you like the style or you need the pieces, it may be worthwhile if you have a different train to use with it. On its own, it's pretty broken. Admittedly, my son was much more forgiving and had fun with it. I however will be returning it for another set.

    Great product for the price. My 2 1/2 year old loves playing with it after he played with his cousins much more expensive set. Would reccommend. Plan to continue buying pieces to expand the set.

      We bought this set for our toddler that's recently become a big fan of trains. He absolutely loves it and plays with it all day every day, so far. It's perfect for his hands to hold and connect. The material is great quality and sure to last. We could care less for the trees and people though. It's great for a starter kit but definitely could use more parts. All in all we are totally happy with the purchase;great price for a great toy.

        We got this train set for my daughter for Christmas this year. I love the fact that it's easy to set up and take down. It doesn't take up much room like a huge train table, which is great because we live in a condo. It's a fun set that is a nice upgrade from the typical figure 8 train set. My daughter loves it and has played with it everyday since Christmas.

                    My daughter loves these toys as she can make all kinds of variations with it. My older daughter also lives these kinds of toys even at her age. This will definitely get years of play with them for sure.

                    Comments about Toys R Us 1001325 Imaginarium City Train Set:

                    Bought this set several years ago when our son was 3 or 4; he had started getting some wooden RR stuff before and we were happy to get a set to really get going on it. I have discovered Imaginarium has poor design quality control on the RR items and thus, will not buy anything else except some of the train cars.

                    First, they neglected to realize the train provided (and many others of theirs) will not fit under the bridge. We had to add things under the bridge supports to raise it up.

                    Second, very important, the tolerances on the track joints are TERRIBLE. Some are far too tight, others very loose. The tight pieces hardly fit together and take a good deal of strength to force.

                    Last, a minor thing but annoying, the supports are simple and do not actually hold on to the track, so they easily slide out or the supports move away from joints.

                    I tried to buy a few more pieces of track, but they were still bad. Never again. It all looks nice, and holds up (yes, it is wood), but lots of sloppy design.

                    Thomas tracks are very good quality, but if you want quality fit AND relatively cheap tracks, get Melissa & Doug! Plus, M&D has the best elevation supports!
