Last month I went to the Toy Fair and one of the toys that caught my eye was a giant 22 piece interchangeable railway-themed jigsaw from Orchard Toys, so when Sebastian was offered it to review I knew he would love it.
The set promotes imaginative play by allowing you to build lots of different railway tracks in any way you choose, there is no right or wrong way, all the pieces fit together and promotes conversation too as you play.
There are 22 interchangeable track pieces and railway buffers featuring pretty stations, level crossings, colourful trains and their carriages plus some character play pieces with little stands so they will stand upright. The real beauty of this set is that you can add your own trains to play with it too.
We were also sent the Station themed expansion pack with more chunky interchangeable pieces to go with the Giant Railway set with more road pieces to make our railway even more realistic.
If you want to expand further there is more to collect with the Giant Road System, Giant Town, Airport and Junctions expansion packs too. to piece together a whole town of fun!
This really is a versatile set that comes in a handy carry case so you can take with you when you go away. I think this set is going to be a firm favourite for years to come.
