After setting my eye on a Brio train at another store which promptly sold out before I could get my hands on one, I hesitantly order this instead. I was very worried about the strange yellow Squid-thing but went for it anyhow. And I am so thankful I did! This is the best first train-set ever! My 2 1/2 year old has asked to play with this every single day since receiving it. There are simply so many ways this engages him! He loves to pull around one car using the life-preserver. He loves to build a circle and make the whole train go around. He loves to carry the Squid, holding one train car in his mouth, to bed with him or for a ride in the car, and he loves to use the ramps to build a train road, so the train can drive back and forth. Lots of fun and a great, great quality product!

I got this little train set for my one year old for Christmas. While I think he may grow into playing with it, he's not terribly interested now. It's a very cute set, but honestly, there is not much there to really play with. Fortunately, we have a huge train collection and those wooden tracks are the same size as these, so this little set is an addition to our large set. Otherwise, by itself, it's pretty boring just driving the trains in a circle. The little fishy trains themselves are very cute, but I'm confused at the giant squid, lol. The little handle that is supposed to help pull the train along does not have a strong enough magnet in it to pull anything, so it's pretty useless. I got this set on a HUGE deal, so it makes a nice cheap addition to our sets.

This will be one of the first toys for my upcoming grandchild.
cute first train set
this is a cute train set and just right for a toddler to assemble. i like the storage inside the squid. but one piece of track chipped right away. i expect more from brio, they have such a good reputation.
A good product for a good price

My daughter loves this toy. We bought it for her even though she is a bit younger than the advertised starting age..but she already loves pulling the magnetic trains around the track. The pieces are soft and brightly colored too. We travel a lot and this toy is perfect for traveling as the squid opens up to store all the other pieces in. This is what realy attracted us to this product. It is very practical and fun!
Great 1st set...

Was a Chritmas gift for our 15 month old son and he loves the little trains. Doesn't care much for the tracks or the Squid yet but guess that will come a little later as he gets older. Wish the Squid was a little larger; not quite big enough to hold trains and tracks but the set is super cute and durable.
1000 times more than what I expected

This is the starting point for my son to learn about rail road tracks and let his imagination run loose. I would buy this or similar products again and combine them to make a big set-up.

This train set is so cute!! My son loves it!! Although he mostly does his godzilla impression whenever we play with it, knocking the tracks and the trains everywhere, it is very durable and shows no signs of the beating my son give it. The paint is very bright and colorful and duarable. Can't wait to buy more so we can build an entire town for him to destroy!!!
