What Customers say about the Vetch alphabet train

“I got this for my God-child’s 1st birthday after having seen how my sister’s kids loved it and became stable in their walking through using it. Just like my sister’s kids my God-child loved it and he still loves. According to his mother it is his favorite toy and it is the first thing he plays with in the morning and the last thing in the evening. He was just starting to walk when he got this and now he is cruisin’ along with only one hand on the handle – a real cool guy
The blocks with letters are great for training the alphabet with the kids as well as teaching and strengthening their motor skills as the blocks can be placed in slots on the side of the train and also pushed down a slot on the top of the train, which then shoots the block out on the back of the train and into the attachable wagon. The latter function is a great hit!
There are a lot more functions and positive things that I’ve only heard about in passing and therefore can’t describe well enough to do it justice, however, I know that the children and parents who have this toy all love love love it
I can’t recommend it enough! I am even thinking of getting it for my cousin’s boy for his Christening :)”
“We got this as a gift for my son’s first birthday. He is 13 moths old now and has loved it from day one. He spends a lot of time using it as a walker and he also loves the 26 letter blocks that come with this toy. He does not yet uses the features on the front of the train (clicking alphabet blocks in place or the alphabet booklet) but he LOVES “posting” the blocks through the hole in the top of the train and watching them shoot out the bottom. He also loves to “post” the blocks through our baby gate down our cellar steps! All in all this toy has enabled him to play independently without much supervision so I can finally get some stuff done in the kitchen.
Also, I think the small size mentioned by other reviewers is great for us because he can walk with it into places he couldn’t go with a bigger toy, for instance around our dining room table, which increases the size of the circuit he has created for himself to run in. The small size makes it light weight but with a little practice he was quickly able to pull himself up without knocking it over.
He’s not quite tall enough to use the ride-on features but I am sure he will grow to love all this toy has to offer soon enough.
