This book proves that it is possible to be interactive without the need for technology. It is an interactive book which encourages imagination, reading and playing, wind up the toys, letting them run along the track and making up a story as they go! There are three stories, with pop out pieces that can be slotted into their stands and stood on the pages to add an extra element of fun.

My children love the simple illustrations of Farmyard Tales and here the clockwork train adds fun interaction ... young children will have hours of fun.

Fun until the last page
We bought this book because of the track change option on the last page. Day one when our son opened the book the train gets caught in the seem of the book. Today he was gently turning the track change and the piece popped up. Needs some improvements. But at least the first 2 pages work.

Wind Up Train Book
I just wanted to say that this book is fantastic and both my boys love to sit and play with it for ages - what better credit can you give a book than that! My oldest is train mad and he thinks he has his own little loco in the house :-) A while ago we had a little accident with the train that accompanies the book (a rather excited boy who dropped his train in the loo then flushed it) and so I contacted Usbornes to try and get a replacement. I was soo pleased when not only did they organise for one to be sent, it came immediately and at no cost, what fantastic customer service!
