MEGA BLOKS – Kids Spiral #40

A double mountain spiral Granny suggested? A challenge? We accept! So here it is and we have sent the link to Keira and Arya’s granny to prove we did it. And yes we did play with a little reverse footage just to spice things up ☺ There were a few tumbles but it was a great track to play with and we left it up for several days. It was actually quite sturdy!

Building Block Spiral Train Set Layout – #39

A building blocks spiral train set layout was our mission this week. We decided to build one side higher than the other – which ended up being quite a tricky engineering feat. Once it was finished we had good fun playing with it. Keira even managed to get under one of the tracks and do a little dance within the layout 🙂 And yes the start is a little cheeky as it was played backwards — this was actually Keira taking the track down.

Who’s faster? The train or the toddler? – #38

So for this one it was Arya and I. She had decided that the trains needed at least some sort of changing of tracks or directions. So she proceeded to grab trains off the train set as they went round. Sometimes they went back on, sometimes they disappeared never to be seen again. She enjoyed herself and it was fun.

Mega Block Train Set with Peppa Pig – #36

Back home this week and we had the Mega Blocks out again. This time is was a massive forest of mega block toy towers and ramps. The bends were a little tricky and we had the engines going round at a really good speed — although we did have a couple of falls! But our trains are hardy — especially our little green train so no harm done. Keira insisted that Peppa Pig was included so she has pride of place on the shelves! We think our mega block train set was a huge success!

Toy Train Set in Australian Bush – #35

Our last outback train set was set around a rocky mound and our wooden toy train set was right at home. Hayden and Keira had fun setting up and then seeing the little engines zipping around the track. Indeed Hayden declared he was the security guard and that if there were any issues he would deal with them. Sounded good to us!

Rocky Railway Set – #34

Keira and her cousin Hayden decided where this track would be build and they chose on top of the rocks. It was a bit of a challenge and our little toy trains had a few spills trying to make it around the bends but it was fun scrambling over the rocks and finding ways to prop the train tracks up. This is not a railway set for the fait hearted!

Bush Train bridge crossing fun – #33

Staying with Granny and Grandpa – we are out in the Australian bush – so this weeks toy train track is over a bush bridge crossing in the garden. It’s a smaller track but lots of fun to be outdoors with our toy train sets. Our little Brio engine chugged over the bridge with a little help from Keira and Hayden. Our little ikea train sets have certainly seen a lot of different locations now!

Roundabout Train Summit – #32

What if we made a track, which just went up? Round and round and round? Well this week we decided we’d find out. We call it the roundabout summit and its surprisingly sturdy. Our little brio engines also made it up alright — although going down was a slightly different story ☺ We weren’t quite sure how to finish it as the top but Keira was quite to find a solution! Check out the video as we reach the train summit.

Into the Potty – Mega Bloks Mayhem – #31

So I realised I was getting far to highbrow with our train tracks when Keira announced that the train running into the dolls potty was the most “awesome” train track we had ever done. Lesson learned — potty humour is always funny! This was our first track using lots of Mega Bloks and we decided we have more exploring to do with these.

Flying high IKEA track – #30

This week we went all aerial – with the track almost all off the ground! We’ve built a few more supports and we have more to put together – so more flying train tracks are on the way! Our IKEA train sets are getting a serious workout and blue tack is our best friend 🙂
