Chuggington Wooden Railways: KoKo’s Safari: Review and Giveaway!

October 29, 2012

My boys are always more-than-thrilled when they open the box from the UPS man and find a Chuggington set.

Chuggington Koko Safari Set Wooden Railway Train Set

I personally love the looks and feel of the wooden sets the best, but I really don’t think my children have much of a preference.  They love them all!

This time we are reviewing the Chuggington Wooden Railways: Koko’s Safari Set made by TOMY.


First we set it up on the carpet –

DSC05576Both Ethan and Andrew had a really good time playing – and surprisingly, it was REALLY pretty quiet.  DSC05574

We pulled Calley upstairs from our other wooden set that we own – so each boy would have a train to play with.

After a while though, we decided that the tracks just weren’t sticking together quite as well as they should on the carpet – and brought out the train table. This is when things got a lot more interesting!DSC05594

The boys were able to walk around the train set, and enjoy all the parts of the set – including the noises from the monkeys. DSC05587

Besides the train noises each boy was making – they stayed really focused on the set for at least a good 30 minutes.

And they stayed out of each other’s way!


It’s so fun to see their imaginations at play with these sets – I just know that they’ll enjoy them for several more years!

One thing I did notice that’s not so good about the wooden set, is that the tracks don’t run nearly as deep as they do on the plastic sets – so when the train goes down the hill, and around the bend – it almost always falls off.  This became a game for them eventually – trying to see who’s train shot out the farthest.

Also because the pieces don’t click together so tightly, it’s easy for them to fall apart with toddler hands – and a source of frustration for them.

But daddy got involved, and brought up all the other wooden tracks that we have –and brought the fun to the kitchen table and created a one level train set to play with on an even larger scale.  They spent all evening playing with them!

You can purchase this train set at most stores with Chuggington Sets – at an ERV of $99.99 (although on Toys R Us is sold for $64.99 currently). Be sure to follow Chuggington on Facebook to keep up with all the new toys and episodes!
