Review of the Hape Monkey Pop-Up Track

0bba53e33c9cf2178445a8d4a90026e8.jpgIf your child enjoys hours of wooden railway fun, then why not introduce them to the charming Monkey Pop-Up Track from Hape. This cute and friendly toy would be a great addition to any Hape track, fitting onto a variety of their current train sets. The three cheeky monkeys hide in the jungle just waiting to catch that banana!

The pop-up track will be a guaranteed hit with any child, adding fun characters to your train sets, with the excitement of a pop-up surprise.  As the banana car glides cross the wooden track, the monkeys keep an eye out, and as the banana passes, POP, the monkeys jump out to claim their banana. 

The Monkey Pop-Up Track is made from high quality materials including wood, ABS, metal and magnets, so your child can connect the banana car to any other magnetic Hape trains on their track. This fun vibrant set includes 7 pieces including the wooden track, cool banana car and of course 3 monkeys to pop out as the car passes. 

On of our young reviewers got the chance to play with the Hape 

My son is just 18months and a very active little boy. He usually enjoys destroying the train tracks myself and my 3 year old daughter make. More than playing with them! However, the jumping monkeys really caught his attention. He was able to manipulate the monkeys well enough to refill the stations and ended watching the jump out. The size and shape of the d9922649d53e6a0c71a9558b70d0d2a9.jpgpiece were perfect for little hands and help develop his hand eye coordination. He begun to copy his sister in moving the train upfront of the red pegs to make them jump up. As he played he would make huffing noises as the train went across and laughed as he made the monkeys move. There were even rare moments where they played together and begun to take turns in putting the monkeys back and making them jump. As with all Hape toys we have had the quality is really excellent, the study wooden pieces are nicely decorated and the plastic is not at all flimsy. We had the jungle train set for it to join into and it made a really fun addition to the track. I would recommend this track on its own or as an addition to your existing track as it kept the attention of my son, which is not an easy thing to do!! I can't wait to try out some of the other fantastic additions Hape offer,  including a musical track.

The Monkey Pop-Up Track has dimensions of (LWH) 23.4x12.3x11.4cm and is £15 from Debenhams.
