Chuggington Over and Under Starter Set With Clock Tower

This is a Thomas The Tank Engine competitor.   My grandchildren have made me aware of many things and Thomas and Chuggington are two of them.   This is a high quality wooden railway system that is compatible with the Thomas track.   That is very important as kids end up with parts from multiple sets and they always want to combine them.   I’m a bit cheesed at the die-cast Thomas as I did not realize it was a different scale than the wooden Thomas.   That is beside the point in this review except I want to point out that this track is compatible with the standard wooden Thomas set.  

The set includes two engines named Koko and Wilson.   A Vee, a clock tower tunnel, a bridge tunnel and 17 pieces of track are included in the set.   It sells for $39.99 at Amazon.   As disturbingly high as that seems, that seems to be what the market will bear in these wooden train sets.  They are ALL high in price.   In all fairness, they are also very, very durable and do generate hours and hours of play.   This is a good quality toy with television show tie ins that will generate excitement with your child.   This set is fine but you will want to buy substantially more track for the most fun.  Part of the name is Starter Set. 

If reviewing a product, it may have been received free of charge. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
