My son got this for Christmas. He got a few train track sets. But this one is the best. He loves it! I also like it too because unlike his other train sets. This one is very durable. It stays together with some rough play. The painted like coloured pirates are on there really good too and you can tell it won't peal off or wear off anytime soon. This train set is great quality.
It comes will three mini cars that connect to make the train with a magnet type at each end on the train/cars. This makes it easy for our son age three to enjoy this train set. The track is very easy to put together. It doesn't really matter which way he puts it together it seems to match up for him.
There is also a magnetic part that can hook onto the treasure chest to be lifted off the train/car then lowered to where he wants to put it. It is finally nice to be able to see our son playing with a train set that he can put together and use without getting frusterated. He just loves playing with the pirate ship that came with this set.
This is the train set to get if you want to spend your money on a train set that won't fail apart or break at the drop of a hat.
