We started giving my son the wooden Thomas train sets when he was 1 1/2. My parents got him this set for his second birthday, and although he couldn't put the tracks together himself at that point, he loved the sounds the mountain overpass made. Now my 1-year-old daughter loves to press the buttons. My son would turn his battery operated train on(not included in this set) and let it go around and around and around the tracks. Each time the train car goes under the overpass, a different train sound plays. Also, when a car goes over the overpass, a truck sound plays.
This set includes both train track and road track, which is cool.
The tracks stay together when they are placed on a hard surface, like a table. They do not stay together well on carpet. When the tracks are together, the trains stay on the tracks. We were pleasantly surprised at how well the trains stayed on the tracks.

In case you're wondering WHY I posted this to my blog... I have two reasons. The first was curiosity - I was at Toys R Us's website and I saw the option to post the review I wrote on my blog. It looks kinda cool!
Second reason is the reason I wrote the review in the first place - only one review was written on this particular product and it only gave it two stars! The guy said that the track pieces didn't stay together and the trains didn't stay on the track. So not true... if you set it up correctly. We love the Thomas wooden train sets!
