Riding the Rails with the Wooden Toy Train Set from Cubbie Lee Toy Company

Riding the Rails with the Wooden Toy Train Set from Cubbie Lee Toy Company

Both my children love trains. Every time he hears a train whistle or sees a train, my son excitedly says ooh ooh like a train whistle in response. My kids also love playing with the wooden train sets at the library and children’s museum. While our toy room contains an entire box of wooden cars and trucks, my kids had yet to acquire a wooden train set. Thus, when recently offered the chance to review a wooden toy train set from Cubbie Lee Toy Company in exchange for my honest opinion, I eagerly accepted the opportunity.

Evaluation

My kids absolutely love the toy train sets at the local library and children’s museum. My son in particular always heads straight towards the train table in the library playroom when his big sister goes to story hour. When I showed my kids their new wooden toy train set from Cubbie Lee Toy Company, both were super excited and insisted that I open the box right away. Like pieces were packaged in plastic baggies. The only assembly required prior to playing with the train set was for the covered bridged. I quickly inserted and tightened the four small screws with a Phillips-head screwdriver while my kids investigated the other pieces.

With 70 total pieces, the wooden toy train set from Cubbie Lee Toy Company makes for a very nice train track for my kids. At the insistence of my daughter, I first set up the track as pictured on the box. My daughter also likes to make her own track patterns. The pieces are fairly easy to assemble but stay together pretty well even with two kids playing at once. In fact, my five-year-old daughter has a little bit of trouble taking the track pieces apart, so she usually asks for my help. That the track is a bit difficult to disassemble means the pieces do not fall apart while my kids are playing, which I consider a huge plus.

I am quite impressed with the quality of the wooden toy train set from Cubbie Lee Toy Company. The set appears to be of the same quality as the sets at our library and children’s museum, both of which receive a lot of wear and tear. My kids can be a bit rough on toys, so high quality items are a must in my house. The train pieces with moving wheels seem very sturdy. Even the few plastic moving parts such as on the gate arms are high quality. I am confident that this wooden train set will last my kids for many years to come.

Final Verdict

All in all, my kids are absolutely thrilled with their new wooden toy train set from Cubbie Lee Toy Company. With a total of 70 pieces including tracks, train, bridge, traffic signs, characters, and scenery, my kids can spend hours creating and pretending. I prefer giving my children toys that spur the imagination, and this train set keeps my kids engaged and entertained throughout the day. The wooden pieces are extremely high quality and should last for many years and even multiple generations. The pieces are easy enough for little hands to use but still remain securely connected during play. If your child loves trains or building as much as my kids, I highly recommend the wooden toy train set from Cubbie Lee Toy Company!
