Imaginarium Train Table Review
So you’re considering getting an Imaginarium train table by Toys R Us?
I have to say, it’s a great table. You just need to make sure you’re prepared for all it entails by reading about our experience with our own Imaginarium Express
Everyone knows how much Little A loves anything trains, planes, nature and Pokémon – so that’s what she got for Christmas.
Thank goodness Christmas is over now and I can officially say all the toys are put together and Little A has had time to play with them. So I feel comfortable doing a review of something I was so excited for her to get – her Imaginarium train table.
Her grammy was awesome enough to get her the Imaginarium Train Table as one of her gifts.
We teased her and told her that it was for her uncle because she was with us when we got it so that’s what my mom made up. It upset her so bad that her uncle was getting the train table and not her.
But she got it of course, so let’s jump into the review!
Well now I know why my dad would have a beer when he would put together our toys.
I had a few drinks myself.
The Table Assembly!
First, the screws that the instructions said went in the end did not. I put it in and started screwing the ends together and it totally fell through. Like, the head of the screw wasn’t big enough to not go all the way through the holes.
Okay, so we figured out that it was maybe just wrong and tried a bigger screw.
Guess it was just a misprint or a mistake.
So we keep going. I was freaking out that we wouldn’t have enough screws since we had to put a different one in the ends.
We hit another spot where it said to use another kind of screw and it was too big. So we used the smaller ones that were supposedly meant for the ends of the table and they fit.
Fast-forward through some cuss words here and there and a couple more drinks, and we had a table, a bridge, and a train station! Now we just had to put the tracks on.
The Track Assembly
That was another struggle. It went mostly smooth until we had to to the hill before the bridge and the curve after the bridge. The blocks that hold up the hill before the bridge are not the best. Jacob and I are thinking about super gluing it because it comes undone a lot!
The curve after the bridge was a struggle because we couldn’t figure out which pieces made it go right so they trains kept going. That took a couple minutes to figure out.
Again, fast forwarding to after getting the tracks all connected.
I really do love the end result when it come to the Imaginarium train table. It’s such a cute train table and Little A loves it. If you look closely in the pictures, she included her Pokémon in it as well. So cute.
If you’re considering a train table, the imaginarium train table is a good investment. It’s generally cheaper because it comes with all you need instead of buying everything separate.
The literal only things I dislike is that the curve before the bridge held up by the blocks that are included is not very sturdy and the aggravation I got from trying to figure out why the screws didn’t fit in the right spots. Other than that, I love Little A’s new Imaginarium table.
So big thanks to her Grammy!
