I am very excited to show you one of our new products which solves a problem.
I remember as a child loving my wooden train set. I used to play with it for hours and hours, rejigging the track, moving my train from A to B, playing with friends in our different pretend roles – it was a huge part of my childhood.
The problem is, most train sets on the market are designed for older children maybe 3+ as they probably contain small parts. This is where our new range from Hape comes in. Please take a look at our video…
The Rainbow Railway has been designed to be a toddler friendly train set suitable for children from age 18 months and above.
It is designed to be engaging and exciting at every level. All the pieces contain vibrant colours and they all are incredibly interactive. They are designed to move with certain actions triggering maybe a pop-up piece or a sound or music. This is a train track which will surely engage and entertain your little one for hours as they learn through experimenting with the different pieces.
The designers have developed and enhanced more traditional toddlers toys into track pieces. A good example of this is the shape sorter track piece, where your toddler can sort the complete the shape puzzle with the triangular, rectangular and semi-circular pieces to complete the track and prevent the little train from derailing! Maybe it is sounds your little one is interested in. The train can trundle over the xylophone track piece or make its way through the cymbals, triggering each one automatically as it passes. When the train reaches the bead maze, your child can stop and play with the beads as they whirl them around the loops.
A truly fantastic product which makes us very excited indeed! Best of all it is compatible with other wooden railway brands (e.g. Brio) so it can expand as they get older and collect more pieces, to create a truly unique railway set.
This set could really go a long way in improving fine-motor skills and could also encourage creativity, communication and teamwork.
We aim to expand the range in the future so keep checking our space.
