    We got a train version of this as a party favor at a birthday party, and I thought what a great idea. We usually give away plastic stuff that I’m sure gets thrown away. This was a great, artistic activity for my son to do. He is 3 1/2 and really took his time painting all the parts. Then when it dried, he enjoyed figuring out how to put the pieces together and adding the stickers. It was a whole afternoon activity. The one thing is it is not a car/train to play with like pushing it around the floor as boys do. It falls apart. It is really just to paint and put together and then look at. It would be amazing if it actually held up well enough to play with, but for this price, just the activity itself was great. I will be giving this away at his next bday party and we will collect more of these for my son and I to do at home together!

    I should have looked at the size of this toy because I just assumed that it was a good size toy. It is very small and not worth paying full price for. I was lucky to pick this up for 75% off but even at that price I will not buy these types of toys again.

    I didn’t realize that Melissa and Doug make this car kit in two sizes – one is a nice, pinewood derby type size, this one is much smaller – 1 1/4 inches wide and less than 4 inches long. Both kits comes with similar materials (glue, paint, stickers) but the wow-factor on this one is much less. I had wanted these as the main activity for a 3 year olds b-day party and had to go with something else when this arrived and I saw how small they were.
