Archie and Frankie are huge train fans , they love nothing more than to get the train set out and let their imagination take them on adventures. We have loads of different wooden train bits and pieces , so we were over the moon when Hape asked us to review their solar powered train set.
We love imaginative play here and I really believe it helps their development. I love listening to them play and use their imaginations whilst paying. I feel they have learnt so much through play and have fun at the same time.
The set is every little train lovers dream and comes with so many little accessories. The engine has its own solar panel that generates enough electricity to power its lights. Push it through the spirals to the station where the Ticketmaster is ready to collect fares. Teaching children about the importance of renewable energy, this train is made from BioPlastic, which is plastic made from sugarcane.
The little ones had loads of fun using their imagination playing with this set. We really liked how many layout options there were and the instruction booklet shows all of the layouts which Archie loved and was able to assemble with a little guidance. The train set is suitable from ages 3+.
Archie and Frankie both enjoyed using their creative side to come up with their own layouts and set up. It was great to see their imagination come through play. They were so proud of the creations they had made.
The quality of the set is fantastic and you can tell it is built to last , it is also one of those timeless toys that I think they will still be playing with in years to come. I also love the fact that you can collect so many different track sets and accessories and build on what we have.
It’s created with non-toxic paints and glues. Hape make products which help learning and believe you play to learn. This train set is fun for the whole family and can be extended with Hape’s extensive train set range.I think that Hape is a great addition to their developmental play and we can’t wait to explore the rest of the range.
Suitable for ages 3+ The Hape Solar Power Circuit costs £37 from Amazon.
