My oldest son was a fan of Thomas the Tank Engine, and then he outgrew Thomas and moved on to something else. Even so, he still loves playing with his train sets and building different track configurations on his train table. When we received the Chuggington Wooden Railway, his eyes lit up. I am glad the train set arrived just in time before the bad weather came. He is not a big fan of thunderstorms, let alone a tornado. When the tornado siren went off, we had to go to the basement but the train set helped to keep his mind occupied.
What is Chuggington?
It is a cartoon TV series with stories about the town of Chuggington with the adventures of three young Locomotive trainees (Wilson, Brewster, and Koko). The stories often end with the morale story of friendship and good values in life.
In the story, the town of Chuggington has various railway tunnels. The wooden railway set we received for the review is Over and Under Starter Set.
This train set, which was named as an Oppenheim Toy Portfolio “Gold Seal” winner, comes with 22-piece set. The set includes stack/un-stack clock tower for two separate tunnels and Chuggington characters: Wilson, Koko, and Vee. This train set also comes with a set of exclusive REAL WOOD Chuggington track that can be configurable in multiple ways.
My son had the tracks set as an oval shape (see picture), but the tracks can also be laid out as a shape of number eight (8) with the clock tower stacked up together. Un-stacking the clock tower makes them tunnels. Use your imagination or see samples of track layouts here for ideas. The tracks are also compatible with other wooden track systems.
