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 around the word , they have even been to New York City on the train . We have loads of different wooden train bits and pieces , so we were over the moon when Hape asked us to review Crane and Cargo set. This will make a great addition to our collection.

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 Crane and Cargo set allows you to –

  • Drive a truck up the automatic rail crossing and safely make your way across to the crane
  • Rotate the button on the crane to release its magnetic hoist line and pick up the cargo
  • Load the cargo onto the Hape train

A and F loved this and were pretending to be at a warehouse loading sweeties on to the trains. I love how their imagination came in to play.

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 and the stock they had delivered to the shops and factories.

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 Crane and Cargo costs £49.99 from Amazon.
