Dinosaur Train Artic Adventure Train Set Review & Giveaway 7/24

TOMY's mission is to inspire and fulfill the dreams of children and parents worldwide. We offer a wide range of popular toy brands that kids love and parents ask for by name, including: Chuggington™, Lamaze®, John Deere, Ertl®, Johnny Lightning ®, Tomica ® and Jim Henson's Dinosaur Train™. We never take for granted the role toys play in the lives of children. Together, we can continue to inspire the dreams of kids around the world through great play.

Since McKenzie's birthday party was Dinosaur Train themed, I found it fitting to see if Tomy wanted work together on this adorable Artic Adventure Motorized Train Set from the Dinosaur Train section of their website.

This train set retails for $24.99 and can be found at Target and Toys R Us. 
It's rated for ages 3+
There's over 8 feet of "icy" track which is 16 pieces total
This set comes with three characters

We love this set! The tracks easily snap together, and the train turns on and off with one push of the little smoke stack. The train cars also snap together easily, and the little characters snap in to each car because of little holes in the feet that attach to little nobs in the cars. 

Our girls can get about 30 minutes of continuous play before our rechargeable batteries die and need replaced. By this time, they're adding other toys to it and putting books over the tracks to make tunnels, and so 30 minutes is a great time frame if the train is on that whole time. 

This was our only real issue with this train set. 

Since it is motorized and wheels move, I encourage that your kids play in same room as you, or put it up and only pull it down when they ask to play with it. I didn't think of this when I let them have it in their play room and poor McKenzie had to sit for about 10 minutes while I got it out of her hair. 

I am happy to say that no hair had to be cut, just untangled!

Overall, this is a great Dinosaur Train set and I highly recommend it. $25 isn't too bad since it comes with so many pieces and I think its sturdy enough to hold up to the abuse that kids give their toys!
