Early-years train sets now boast scenery, thanks to easy-to-assemble plastic kits.
Hornby's Playtrains range has gained infrastructure through easy-to-assemble micro kits. Catering for the youngest of train fans, Hornby's Playtrains range is more robust for smaller hands, and more wallet-friendly, too.
With interactive games for children on its website, sets can now be expanded with lineside infrastructure. Received by the manufacturer this month for review was a station and tunnel kit. Injection-moulded in bright plastic colours, components are a simple push fit, using the instructions for assembly, requiring non tools or adhesives.
While an introduction into the methodology of kit assembly for children, expect some adult supervision for early years builders!
Inside the box, a packet contains all parts, instructions and a collection of stickers to customise models.
Push-fit parts make for quick assembly. Everyone loves a sticker sheet!
Five pieces make up the tunnel kit. The centre sections aren't used for a single track setup.
Sheep, fences, flowers and bushes – let your children get creative!
