My toddler loves this and he's not yet 2. You can choose your train and lots of carriages. He loves to press the sounds and turn day to night to switch the lights on and watch his train go past the station at the start. It's great for enabling children to learn how to swipe through and basic cause and effect. My 4 and 7 year olds also really enjoy it.



A brilliant app, my 3 year old loves it and could play on it for ages. Loves changing from day to night and also changing the signals. Enjoys building the train and collecting crates too.

Great train game for small people


My grandsons aged between 3 and 7 all love to play this train game. It has provided hours of endless fun with variations in the engines, wagons and maps.
