It does need to be assembled and it did take me a little longer than it should but that's because I'm useless when it comes to instructions. Although the toy is made of plastic once it's all set up it's very strudy and has passed the rough and tumble toddler test with flying colours.
This toy is aimed at 12+ month and is great for encouraging hand - eye coordination and is a lot of fun too. It come's with two train balls (Thomas and Spencer - more can be bought separately) which not only can be rolled down the colourful tracks but can also be spun around the Fat Controller and lifted to the top again with the little lift too.
"Start your winding journey from the Thomas & Friends spiral station! Ascend the engine lift, set off from Tidmouth sheds and then race down the rails to the bottom. When you reach the end, spin the roundabout to get your rolling engine into the lift and start your spinning journey once more."
As you can see by the photo's Noah has had an absolute blast playing with the Rail Rollers Spiral Station. At first I thought it may be a little too young for Noah to play with being 22 months old but I was wrong. It's makes a great toddler toy because there are so many elements that grow with your child.
Noah has had countless hours of fun with it already and his favourite part is probably the lift. He loves to transport the balls up and down and once they are running down the track he shouts "choo choooo!"
At £32.99 I think it's great value for money. I can see it being a big hit with the parents come Christmas time and it would of been on Noah's Christmas list, that's for sure!
