This is very cute and perfect for a train loving kid. However the box it comes in is absolutely terrible. It is covered with things like "inspire healthy eating habits" and talking about portion control. This is on every single side of the box in giant lettering. This makes it impossible to give as a gift without insinuating the parents do not make healthy choices for their kids. Also, why are you trying to make young children obsessed with portion control. I honestly would not have purchased if there had been a picture of the box. Now I have to wrap it in something else.

My son loves to just play with this "train" and repeatedly take it apart and put it back together. We can't wait until we can get it away from him long enough to put food in it so we can try and have him eat something out of it.
Purchased this for my nephew's 2nd birthday. He loves trains and is over the moon for his new "Chew Chew Train" as he calls it. Dining set and puzzle and toy... this gift keeps him interested in his meal and entertained at the table during that boring "adults talking" time.

My kids love trains so we will keep it but it's really too big for kid sized meals. Takes up a lot of kitchen space.....but both boys LOVE to have their meals served in it.
This lunch set is similar to Thomas, but it isn't, which makes me feel better about supporting something non-"commercial." It's a well-contained set, and easy to use.

I bought this for my 3 year old godson's birthday, he loves trains and cars. I thought this would be perfect alongside the rest of his trains gifts. The actual product seems great but the box says "instill healthy eating" and "teach portion control" things like that all over it. While I think that's a worthy goal and definitely a positive if that's what you're looking for, that was not my goal in purchasing nor in gift giving. No where in the description does it mention this so it was a complete surprise. I don't feel comfortable giving this to him - I feel like it's telling his parents I feel like they need to do something different. Maybe I should have just taken it out of the box...ugh. The effort of returning isn't really with it to me so I'll just keep it here for when my nephew comes over I guess. Quality of the item seems awesome, it's just the package I didn't love.
This product was a wonderful gift for my daughter, although my husband was possibly more excited by it.
Adorable and a perfect gift for a toddler or young child. My nephew wants to eat with it every day.
Very cute and easy to use for a little one.
