This little tikes circus train with sounds is pretty cute. The price isn't bad either. It has 3 sections that hook together and then a person and 3 animals. I am thinking that there might have been 1 more person when we first got it. When you put the people/animals in their spots different sounds are made. The first car makes a train noise, which my son loves. Then the next 3 do the monkey, lion and elephant. A young child would have to learn which one is which, because it is always the same and not controlled by which animal you put in.
The special features, sound, are nice but not necessary in my opinion. It seems all toy manufacturers now make all toys make sounds and as long as there is an on/off switch (which there is not) then I am okay with it, but otherwise it can get a bit annoying.
This is constructed of nice heavy duty plastic and the figures of a rubber like. I do not believe that much of anything could happen to this toy, it should last for a long time. Safety is great, all rounded edges, etc. The play value is also good as it stimulates imaginative play for the little ones!
Overall, we like this toy and I would recommend it.
