Born to Play Bob The Builder Snap Trax Garage Set
Advantages: Will give a couple of years play as they grow.
Disadvantages: Snap trax snaps easily!
I bought this product for my 2 year old for his birthday as he loves Bob the Builder. The product comes with track, a car wash (works with battery), little garage/ storage place for the vehicles, a lift, and 3 vehicles (Muck, Scoop and Scrambler), as well as a small Bob. It cost £34.99 form Toys R Us.
Initially I was not very impressed at all- the track fell apart easily whenever my son leant on it a little too hard, and is very difficult for him to put together himself- however, he was probably a little young for it. I was very disappointed that the vehicles are those which you have to pull back and release for them to move around the track, 2 of them don't work properly and an adult is really needed to do it, my son still can't yet do it himself. It would be much better it the vehicles were battery powered to move around the track themselves. The car wash is quite fun and works well, as does the lift.
Now my son is a little older (2 1/2 years) and he LOVES it- he would happily play all day with it. He is more gentle around the track and has learnt not to lean on it, so it doesn't snap apart so readily, however, I do still feel like I have to repair it a few times a day. He doesn't actually use the vehicles with it as they don't move so well, but he loves to drive toy cars around it, and loves to wash them in the car wash.
Overall, I think it is probably worth the money- especially if you search around to find a good deal on it. It has longevity and I'm sure my son will still be playing with it in a year. The quality is not fantastic- so check your vehicles work as soon as you get it home, but it seems to do the trick for my son!
Summary: Overall a good item but not great quality.
