Elmo Junction Train Set

Product Review – Elmo Junction Train Set

For over 40 years, Sesame Street and its likable cast of colorful and furry creatures have been enormously popular with all ages. Among the vast array of characters on the show, though, none have captured the public&#8217s attention and imagination quite as much as Elmo. With his cute appearance, soft voice, and friendly attitude, Elmo has transformed into the single most popular member of Sesame Street. That popularity is reflected in Elmo-related toys, letting kids play and learn with the furry red monster in a variety of ways. Playskool’s newest incarnation, Elmo Junction, continues in that tradition of making learning fun for children.

Let’s Take a Look at Some of the Features

Elmo Junction is a cars and trains set that features a double-decker, figure-eight track. As kids play with the track, pushing the cars and trains over 123 road and ABC railroad, they are treated to Elmo singing a song about numbers or the ABC song. This allows them to learn their numbers and letters as they have fun and imagine traveling in big vehicles. The set features a full ten feet of track, and it breaks down for storage or cleaning with ease.

Things We Like About Elmo Junction

The combination of playing and learning is what makes Elmo Junction really shine. Toddlers love playing with trains and cars, and they’ll find themselves irresistibly drawn to the set and will end up singing their numbers and letters!

Things We Did Not Like About Elmo Junction

Since it features a full ten feet of track laid out in a figure-eight, Elmo Junction takes up a large amount of space. As a result, some parents with limited room might have a hard time comfortably fitting it in. The set operates on two AAA batteries (demos included), though it is difficult to predict how long they will last and how often parents will have to switch them out for new ones.

Who Would Buy Elmo Junction?

Any parents of toddlers who love Elmo, cars, and trains, and who would enjoy seeing their kids spending their playtime learning would pick up the set.

Is Elmo Junction Worth The Money?

Considering the lessons and endless fun kids can gain from the set, its relatively small price tag is more than justified.

Where Can I Buy Elmo Junction?

Like most Playskool products, Elmo Junction is available at all major retailers, including such names as Wal-Mart, Target, Amazon, and many more.
