Melissa & Doug Deluxe Wooden Railway Train Set 130+ Pcs (701) 5258

Review for deluxe wooden railway train set

Price was $99.99. We purchased this set for my three year old's birthday. He loves elevated tracks when we play on train tables in stores, so i knew this would be a hit. . This set is mostly track, which is fabulous. Other sets we've bough in the past have been mostly trees and people, which we promptly passed to goodwill. They get ignored in the train bucket because they really just get in the way of my son's train play. The quality of this track is excellent and well worth online store's price. . My only issue is in the elevated track (our reason for buying this set in the first place) the blocks that hold it up have tiny ridges to hold the track in place but they just don't do the job. All of our elevated track had been knocked over within minutes and caused a good amount of tears on hi birthday. There is still plenty of track to create flat set ups, but we were disappointed that our primary reason for purchase didn't work out. I know we can by 'sure track' clips, but i think if you pay for a product, it should be able to be used as advertised without additional purchases.

Prologue

Gave this to my 1yo in his 1st birthday. I know he's a bit young for it but we wanted something he could grow into and learn to play with with daddy and cousins and friends. My 3 yo niece and 18 mo nephew were over at his party when we gave it to him (we had it already set up as a surprise, in our closed off 4 seasons room). They played with it immediately. They loved it! it has so many parts and cute little magnetic pieces for tons of imagination. I did check with the imaginarium brand track pieces, and they are compatible. I hope this track is well loved for a long time!

Melissa & doug deluxe wooden railway train set 130+ pcs Review (701)

I can't say enough wonderful things about this set. Yes, it's more pricey than some of the others. But it's worth it! my sons love this train set. It can be set up so many different ways and includes a ton of accessories. We bought a used train table for $20 and my husband nailed this train set to the table. I have been so impressed with the quality of the tracks, trains and accessories. My sons are 3 and 1, so they are very hard on toys. This set has held up better than i would have ever thought! this set is a must if your kiddos love trains. All thomas trains will work with this too so that's just an added bonus. :) -N. Isabel

Melissa & doug

My 2 year old son loves it! we were at toys r us when we couldn't remove him from the train set that was displayed in the middle of the store. We knew exactly what to get him for his birthday since we already owned a train table that was previously given to us when he was younger. My husband and i started to match up the pieces in the isle to that of the table. The first section we looked at was 130 dollars! that didn't even cover 1/4 of the table. So i did my researching online and came across this set. I have always been a melissa and doug fan and after reading the reviews decided to make the purchase. So glad we did, this set is amazing! very durable wood (my husband bolted it to our table) easy to assemble, we had plenty of pieces left over after the table was put together and the best part. The price! :):)

Click to see NoticeMelissa & Doug Deluxe Wooden Railway Train Set 130+ Pcs (701)"This is a great rain set! i love this for my toddler. It is made well and the quality is wonderful. We also have an imaginarium set and it compliments it very well. They adapt beautifully together. It does nohave come with bridges that are self standing but it does have the blocks that fit underneath to support the bridge (not a big deal but my three year old doesn t understand this concept). The colors are bright and catchy. My son can sit and play with trains for hours. It s a great toy. I wish it came with some type of storage bin but i found an old rubbermaid bin that i put everything in."


Melissa & Doug Monster Plush 6-Pin Bowling Game With Carrying Case

These little monsters are so adorable and very well made. They came in a nice zippered case that can be used as storage when done playing. Bought for my 2 year old nephew and he loves it and my sister couldn't get over how cute the set was. Highly recommended!

Don't usually get that "warm and fuzzy" feeling when bowling? well, that's about to change! our amazingly creative monster bowling set adds color, texture and a whole lot of eyes to a familiar game! includes six furry, textured pins and one beastly ball in a zippered carrying case.

Melissa & Doug Monster Plush 6-pin Bowling Game Carrying Case (2191) FAQ.

I bought this melissa & doug monster bowling set for our son for christmas. This game is alot of fun for the whole family. These pins and ball aren't too big, but not too small. They are the perfect size, and not bulky at all. I love that it all came in a zippered bag! when we are finished playing, then we put back in the back for easy storage. Our son loves all of the funny faces, horns, and colors on each pin. The ball and pins are soft and fuzzy. We have no problem with the pins standing up on their own, but they are also easy for our son to knock down with the ball. We set the pins up at the end of the hallway, and we rolled the ball from the beginning of the hallway. I didn't have to worry about scratching up our hardwood floors. The game is quiet and safe, and i love that it helps teaching hand eye coordination. This is a great game to give as a gift or to buy for the family. I love any toy that encourages family interaction. -Notice from H. Pamela, Islington

Bought this as a gift. The good part is the kids love playing with it! the bad part is the dogs love playing with it too! . It has stood up well to both the kids and the dogs!

- I. GuestMy baby is only 7 months old, so, he doesn't quite play bowling with this yet (although i do! ) but he loves the monsters. I opened it the other day with him on the floor with me. I arranged them like pins and threw the ball to hit them hard so they would fall at once. My baby loved it and crawled to them as fast as he could. He looked at all of them, then grabbed one with an orange body and blue furry stripes. It became his favorite! the horns/ears are really fun for young babies, because they pinch them, bite them, hold the monster by them, twist them. The colors and textures are really attractive for babies too. We played with them for a good while. My baby was sitting on the carpet and i arranged them in front of them in a circle as if they were looking at him, and he went looking at them one by one, like to recognize them and pick one up. Then he just had fun knocking them over with his hand as he crawled to them. The ball is also fun for him to grab and bang on things. Now they are all in his toy bucket, and he keeps pulling the orange one out :). . I recommend buying it even for younger babies. It can be used for a while in any way, then put away, then retaken a few months later to give them a new use for the new skills, and eventually, we will play bowling too!

My 18 month old absolutely loves these! she carries them around and entertains herself by putting them in the carrying case they came in and then taking them back out. They're soft and colorful and she loves knocking them down too!

Thomas & Friends Fisher-Price Wooden Railway, Thomas

I'm ordering this for a second time, as my son lost his old one because he had to take thomas with him everywhere. I gave this to him for his 3rd birthday. He has been consistently obsessed with trains for 2 solid years, and particularly his wooden train set. It was inevitable that he would eventually discover and fall in love with thomas. For his birthday, i made him a cake in the shape of the number 3, and made tracks with melted chocolate. Then i just stuck this wooden thomas on top, and voila, a thomas cake (he had requested a strawberry-nilla thomas train cake, i had to oblige). He was also very excited to play with this after its job as a cake topper was finished. He is going to be so excited when he receives his replacement thomas for christmas. These wooden thomas trains are always high quality and work perfectly with the standard wooden railway sets (ours is melissa and doug). We are starting quite the collection.

Thomas is the no. 1 blue engine. He is a cheeky little engine who always strives to be really useful. Thomas can connect to other wooden railway engines and vehicles with magnet connectors.

Fisher-price Thomas Train Wooden Railway Thomas (Fisher Price) FAQ.

Very well made. It's small. (i uploaded a picture of it on a one dollar bill for scale). The face and the wheels are made of plastic. But seems sturdy. Nice details on the body, although a four year old would quickly notice few details missing (namely the whistle and the round headlight in front). Love the fact that the details are not of individual stickers that are easy to peel. Certainly made to last. . Bought some more (the annie and clarabel set) so thomas can have something to pull. They connect to each other by magnet. . Nice and safe. Satisfied. -Notice from C. Walsh, Rotherham

Paint already chipping after 2 months of play. It might be my child's favorite toy though. He even takes it to bed at night!

Fisher-price-thomas-train-wooden-railway-thomas-(fisher-price) set picture

- R. CarrieThis worked great with the melissa and doug set we already had, keep in mind the magnets are reversed but no bid deal. The one thing we have found with the thomas trains is to stick with something three wheels or less. I purchased "whiff" locally, a four wheeled locomotive, and she always derails when coming down an incline, at least with the melissa and doug track. Just my 2 cents.

I bought this train for my little boy last christmas. I searched high and low to find prices fit for an active little boy who has a bad habit of (not intentionally) ruining the majority of toys. This product has withstood the tests placed on it by an active 3 year old with great skill! it is still played with daily, doesn't chip, crack, peel, or any of the things you would expect from a toy bought at this price. So much cheaper than buying in a store! i would definitely purchase this again!

This is beautiful! bought 2 for the grandchildren on an excellent black friday sale and was thrilled. It came quickly and was very well packaged. This is a product that will last the kids for many, many years. We have 2 year old twins in the family who can't use the whole set yet, but we just bring out the basics and keep the rest in the box. They love it - excellent quality - excellent product!

A number of questions have been asked here.

(1) Question: Is it compatible with other train sets


(2) Question: Are these tracks compatible with a thomas the train table?


(3) Question: Does anyone know the dimensions of this once assembled? i would like to build a trundle table for it. is 3ft x 2ft big enough?


(4) Question: I am building a coffee table that can cover a track table for this set. how deep would it need to be to account for the highest object on the track?


(5) Question: Hi, have you got track extension pack and electrical driven trains for this track. thanks

Click the marked text to copy link to Clipboard

I bought these as a christmas present for my two boys (currently ages 20 months and 3 years) seven months ago, and there hasn't been a day where they haven't played with this set! i was hesitant to spend a large chunk of money on this, but i'm so glad i did. It's well made, includes a wide variety of pieces (so there's less fighting over a certain piece! ), can make many different configurations, and is a great price for everything included in the set. If you were to buy each piece individually it'd cost at least 4-5 times as much. At least at our local toy stores. . Also, the fact that the trains are magnetic is genius. Whoever thought that the thomas trains with the itty bitty plastic connectors would be fun for parents and kids to put together deserves to step on a lego. The magnets aren't super strong, but they are strong enough. (for the record, this set is compatible with thomas sets, but the thomas trains won't go through the tunnels or bridges (any piece of the track with side walls. ). . I keep all the pieces in a bin on wheels under the train table, so they usually pull out the pieces that they want and it keeps it somewhat organized. My youngest kiddo figured out how to make a track by assembling a few pieces together by the time he was 16 months old, and i know this will keep their interest for at least a few more years, so it's well worth the money. :)

Best melissa & doug deluxe wooden railway train set 130+ pcs (701) in review

My train fanatic 2 y. O. Got this for his birthday and was speechless when he came home and saw it set up on the coffee table. He plays with it daily. Love the many features - the bridges, train pieces, truck, cranes etc. We had to purchase the suretrack clips as advised by other users to ensure the tracks remain in place. This presents a con as those clips are pretty pricey at $13/box and you require more than one box especially if you want elevated tracks. I suppose you can do without them if you only do a flat lay out. I would be willing to pay a bit more for a set that included track clips but priced cheaper than when one comes out-of-pocket for 2-3 boxes of suretrach clips. The reviews on this train set were spot on so i was not surprised by the loose interlocking pieces. Overall, hours of fun.

It's a great starter set. My 3. 5 year old and 1. 5 year old love it. Not too much frill but a lot of fun to play with. The pillar supports aren't very supportive and they keep falling over when my younger child is a little too crazy with his trains so we're going to purchase some better support pillars. Otherwise it's a nice quality set and comes with quite a few different trains. We also purchased some sure tracks in order to keep them together, especially on the bridges - that was an absolute must. There's no way the tracks would stay together if you didn't have those connectors

Felt at first i was splurging a little but when i saw the price for each individual part by thomas the train. Definitely have have to say the price is fair. Then when it came in and i saw how huge the box was i felt like my money was well spent. My 3 yr old had a set with curved parts that only had tracks on one side so he was limited on making turns, and had no connection peices when he made them meet at the wrong end. Now he has it all. The very first night he spent the entire evening building his tracks freely and using his imagination with the crane and truck. Hands down this set has the best combination/amount of pieces with the most reasonable price

My son has been a train lover for years, so friends have asked for suggestions for a good track set. We bought this set in 2011 and now in 2015 my son still plays with this set most days. We have added lots of other thomas pieces to the collection, but all of the pieces from this set are still used. I've looked to see if there is a better set out there for my friends, but i always find this to be the best starter set available. You get a lot for the money and can figure out if your child will be a casual train user and this is all they need, or if they will become obsessed, like my little guy. If they become obsessed more and more pieces can be added on. . Slight con: the trains are a little annoying as the magnets are backwards compared to the thomas trains. My son figured it out at 18 months though. . Good additions: i do recommend getting suretrack clips to help keep hills or raised tracks together. The melissa and doug wooden train expansion pieces raised track support ( 6 pack) is a good addition, too or you could get maxim enterprise inc multi level support risers, 6-piece.

I'm trying to give this train set six stars, but for some reason online store won't allow me. This. Is. Awesome! . . My three-year-old son is a thomas fan (as are we, as we love how well-mannered all the characters are and how the show's focus is on valuing hard work) and had been begging for a train set. We hinted that he might get one for his birthday. After tons of research, it appeared that the thomas sets were very expensive, the kidkraft ones were of mediocre quality, and the m&d ones were. Just right. The reviews indicated great quality and compatibility with thomas. We took a chance and ordered from online store. . The set arrived in a large box, which i was able to pick up/drag in by myself. I was able to assemble it by myself in about an hour, no tools necessary. I placed our little wooden thomas on the track, held my breath, and. It worked! these tracks are perfectly compatible with the thomas engines. My son woke up from his nap and he was so excited to see this set, he practically peed his pants. It's been over a month now and he still plays with this for about an hour every. Single. Day. . A couple of things:. . 1) suretrack is essential! i purchased two boxes and those were enough to secure the entire track. Without the clips, the track will fall apart during play. Suretrack keeps the whole thing together except for one of the bridges, whcih we fixed by. . 2) . Purchasing the thomas wooden railway stone drawbridge. Yes, it's about $35, but this bridge does not budge. I played around with the configuration until it fit. We have also purchased the thomas and friends wooden railway - deluxe over - the - track signal and this gives it more of that authentic thomas feel. All the thomas accesories fit perfectly on the m&d tracks and we look forward to adding toby's windmill and cranky the crane to this set. . All in all, this has been a wonderful purchase. It is my son's favorite toy, gets tons of use, and we calculate we saved over 50% by using the m&d track, even after purchasing the thomas engines and accessories. Another awesome product from m&d!

This set is a lot of fun. It's quite big and just barely fits on our imaginarium train table. But when put together, the tracks fit very tightly around the train spinner, almost to the point they don't fit. Also the pieces kept falling apart when my son used it, so based on another review we used no residue duct tape to keep the tracks together. It's a great, less expensive option than the snaps.

Got this for my son's 2nd birthday. This set is fantastic as it includes the shed, turntable, 2 bridges, and 2 cranes, all of which my son loves to play with, it took him about 10 minutes to master using the cranes. To get this stuff with the thomas sets would have cost hundreds and melissa and doug is fantastic quality. It also came with 8 trains and a truck, which is a great starting point, and it is completely compatible with the thomas trains (we picked up a bunch of thomas trains at a garage sale). There are also 2 people who my son likes to put in trains and airplanes and helicopters. There are a handful of trees and signs, but not as many extra stuff as most sets have, this is good because most of these just wind up on the ground, but occasionally will be used as obstacles that can be crashed into. . It is a very busy table, not too much space that isn't covered with track, and every bit of track definitely gets used. It can hold a lot more than the 8 trains it comes with, we are currently at 15 trains, the truck, a bus, a helicopter, and an airplane, and i see no reason why it couldn't handle another ten vehicles easily. . One very nice feature of the trains that this comes with is it's very easy to tell which way the polarity runs in the magnets. The wheels look different on each side of the train, on side features nice rounded caps, the other looks like rivets. So long as you see either all rounded caps or all rivets, you know that the polarity is correct and the trains will connect, something that your two year old may not always realize. However, if you will be adding thomas trains, their polarity is reversed from that of the melissa and doug trains. So a melissa and doug engine and a thomas engine will have to face different directions in order to connect. However, the cranes in this set will work with any cargo you can pick up from the thomas trains. . I highly recommend getting a table for this set, we picked up a pottery barn activity table at a garage sale which is the exact right size, along with 2 sets of suretrack clips 14 count to use on the elevated tracks, and a roll of 1" wide gaffers tape. Rather than gluing or screwing down the tracks, the gaffers tape works great and will come off without leaving any residue in a few more years when my son is ready to design his own track layouts. It does take a long time to set up, probably took me 5 hours to build everything and tape it down securely, but after the first week of playing and derailments and crashes nothing is coming off the table. The track with the crane has been lifted up a little bit several times, but never completely taken off. I imagine there isn't a whole lot you can do with this piece as it sticks up so high and is functional, but if i have to occasionally retape down one piece its not the end of the world. I have seen a few places on the elevated tracks that seemed a bit weak so i've reinforced them with more tape and they seem to be a lot sturdier. Update: after two and a half months the gaffers tape and suretrack clips are holding up perfectly, i've never had to fix a single track, and my son climbs on the table and plays rough. . I'm incredibly happy with this train set, its fantastic quality, and it provides my son with hours of entertainment every day!

I d buy a ton of these sets if i could. The quality is great, hours of fun, so many possibilities of designs. I d say ages 2. 5 and up. . Side note:. Don't buy a table for it, children really like to spread it out! a table isolates the creativeness of what they can do. I thought about buying a table for it, seriously don t waste your money on one. It s a quick and easy clean up.

I tried setting up the suggested layout (the traditional setup in a rectangular shape), and like other reviewers, i was frustrated that the pieces weren't lining up correctly. Since the pieces fit so loosely together, you can *make* it work, but it isn't right. I spent a good hour and a half and came up with a solution (see photo; only the changes are labeled). I was ready to return the set because i was so frustrated, but with this fix, it works much better, and i'm happy with the product.

W. Kellie, Wokingham says

Fantastic wooden train set, endlessly configurable, high quality. Easily rivals more expensive thomas sets. . The thomas engines, tracks, and buildings are, obviously, more detailed and the thomas engines seem to be of higher quality, but these are perfect for toddlers who are rough on toys. Yes the buildings in this set are 'more plain' but that's fine. I did find the magnetic cargo bay lift to be awkward to use. Seems like the only way to reset it is to just pull it down and it has already frustrated my toddler and 5 year old. Outside of that no complaints. Worth every penny. . This is compatible with thomas tracks but i found that the bridge supports are slightly too narrow to fit the thomas tracks. They will sit on top but do not fit inside the milled edges of the bridge support.

I. Sandra, North Somerset

My two-year-old son and his older siblings love this train set. As other reviewers said, this set is heavy on the train and light on the fluff - we are all very happy about that! . . Positive: lots of track pieces, trains well constructed, tracks are well-built. In particular i like that the tracks have the connection points cut out of the wood piece, rather than attached separately like an older set i have. Even the plastic components seem high-quality, and i expect the whole thing to survive longer than my kids' interest. . Negative: everything is m&d branded on the bottom, so the tracks can't be flipped over like those of other sets. This is annoying if you don't have enough left-turn or right-turn tracks to do something. . Neutral: all the random train sets we have accumulated over the years interoperate just fine, as long as you can stand some gaps between the tracks. I am happy we don't have to try to figure out which train pieces go where, like we do with our interconnecting building blocks! now i just have to come up with some reasonable storage solution.

This is literally everything you could ever ask for from a melissa and doug. Everything is well made no a single piece with a blemish. Strong sturdy box with a handle on it to help with carrying it around. (it is heavy considering its for children. Adult recommended for moving the whole thing) the mixture of trains with cars with crane station ect all that you would ever need to make a nice large play area. Possibilities are endless with track set up. Buying more cars accessories ect is easy to find and since the price for this was so with-in reason that you can get extras. You get more then you pay for with this set. My son plays for hours on end and while he hasnt tried any raised rails there is no end to his enjoyment when he opens up the box and starts to set up. Great toys dont have to have batteries and this one proves it.

L. Russell, Sutton

Nice set with lots of options to build various tracks. It even includes instructions for a couple of different setups. My son likes playing with it but the blocks holding up the bridges shift when a 4 yr old pushes his train hard over the them and then the pieces fall apart and collapse. I had also purchased the m&d bridge/tunnel set that doesn't use blocks so it was easy to avoid building the set up and my son didn't mind. I do think the sets that use blocks should include anchors so you can enjoy the set without having to add another $10-20 on top of it to ensure the pieces stay hooked together.
