Make adjustments as needed: Depending on the specific tracks and connectors you’re working with, you may need to make some adjustments to get them to fit together properly. They have wood grain looking stripes along them, where as others I’ve seen are just plain wood grain. But the take and play tracks are not as nice as the wooden tracks- is there one that will work with the narrower wheels on the trains I have? If you go with one of these theme sets, be sure to check out the coordinating destinations and additional trains that Bigjigs offers to go with them, like the Bigjigs Rail Pirate Galleon, Bigjigs Rail Shipwreck Bridge, Bigjigs Rail Skull Cave, and the Bigjigs Rail Pirate Train (complete with a cannon car! Kids can use their imaginations to create their train routes, adding fun set pieces like a fire station, a police station, or a school bus stop.

If you have a child who is obsessed with real trains or model trains, if your child has a grandparent, parent, or other favorite family member who is a model train hobbyist, or if you’d just like to teach your child about real trains, you have to check these out! Fortunately I had our new set and our old set sitting together by my desk so I could check right away. They seem to be completely compatible…no issues with the fit of any of the pieces of track I tried, and the Imaginarium train (the taller of the two sets’ engines) fit under the Battat bridge. Hape’s line up of train sets has changed and expanded since I originally reviewed their sets, so you’ll have to forgive the out-of-date (but adorable, right?

Personally, I like the problem solving challenge that the magnetic polarity of wooden train couplings presents to young children. Another thing to note is that the bridge is very tall, with even Chuggington trains rolling below it with plenty of room to spare. While it would not be my first choice for quality, Maxim does sell several switches and other interesting tracks you may have a hard time finding elsewhere.

Sorry to ramble on but with a limited budget I’m feeling a little frustrated and a little sad and guilty about the ones that we bought just sitting and not getting played with. He was very impressed that the plastic magnet covers were secured inside the chassis — it would seem that they aren’t going anywhere, even if an adult tried to pry them out. However, parents and caregivers of young children exploring wooden train sets may need clarification on whether all train sets fit seamlessly together. Their pink and purple Fairy Town figure-eight set and the larger Bigjigs Rail Fairy Town Train Set (and even the adorable Bigjigs Rail Magical Train Set and Table) are very sweet. One of the key factors to consider when using BigJigs and Brio train sets together is the type of connectors used for the tracks.Parents and caregivers can utilize these reputable brands to select wooden train sets that best meet their child's interests, preferences, and creative ambitions. Two of the three male connectors have somehow worked themselves out of the wood or gotten pulled out, so that there is a gap between the switch and the next piece of track.
