For any train lover, this is a must have table addition. I was truly amazed when I first saw the Chew Chew Train. What a cool idea. The Chew Chew train, starts as a train, and pulls apart to become a spoon, fork, cup, large plate, small plate and bowl. The engine becomes the cup, the conductor's house becomes a bowl, the train's platform becomes 2 plates and the coupling rods become the fork and spoon.
It is recommended for kids aged 18 months +, and my 4.5 year old loved it, so would definitely last a few years. Hunter enjoyed making the train and pulling it apart, so it was a puzzle and dinner set in one! Cleaning was easy as it's dishwasher safe.
We find dinner time very stressful in our household. Hunter often looks at food, saying he doesn't like it, without even trying it. More often than not if we get him to try something he ends up liking it...so the challenge is getting him to try it. The Chew Chew Train made his dinner look exciting. He tried something from each section, we made sure to spread it out and include something in each compartment, despite the fact most of it could have fit on the large plate. This meant he ended up eating most of his meal, whilst having fun with the train components. It certainly made dinner time a litte more fun for Hunter, which in turn made it easier for us. Less stress all around!
