Rated 3 out of 5 by Ceress Frustrating to put together
The toys themselves are very neat and keep my child entertained for quite a while. The cars are very well made. However, the track that is supposed to connect the sets together is an engineer's nightmare. They don't stay connected, the angles are difficult to match up when linking multiple sets, and the ever changing male and female ends are enough to drive one with OCD crazy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by a714rocket Comes apart too easily
I purchased this for my 18 month old son and was really excited about it...until I got it out of the box and started to put it together. The parts won't stay together and if they do, they come apart the second you touch them. Because nothing stays together, the toy doesn't work very well and my son gets extremely frustrated very quickly - and I don't blame him! I am highly disappointed in this toy and will not buy VTech toys in the future for fear of poor quality. This wasn't a cheap toy and I will be getting rid of it soon. The frustration it causes my son just isn't worth it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by eboousm Falls apart too easily
This was bought for my son for his first birthday. We love the vehicles that go with it, and the "info" stations on the playset. That being said, it comes apart way too easily. He is almost two now, and this set comes apart with the slightest play. Things fall off, come apart, and just don't work. Good concept; not good execution.

We like the concept of this toy, but it cannot stand up to even gentle play. It constantly falls apart and is very frustrating for our 2+ year old son…who loves construction-related toys. It may be a better toy for him when is a bit older, but ideally it should be appropriate for him at his current age. It is difficult for him to play independently, because he constantly needs our help to put it back together.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MichMichaud Disappointed
1. This is made with high quality plastic which I like.
2. My five year old likes to play with it and can figure out how to put it back together.
3. I am willing to exchange this at the store where I bought it for another VTECH Smart Wheels Playset since the other sets had better reviews.
1. The yellow chute does not stay on or snap into place like the directions read it is supposed to.
2. The gray support for the chute does not stay on or snap into place like the directions read it is supposed to.
3. The age range is not appropriate for a one year old since the pieces come apart so easy. All my one year old likes to do with it is tear it apart.
4. My five year old gets frustrated with the pieces falling apart so easy.

This is a nice set for toddlers. the pieces do not stay together well as this is why i only gave it a 4 star. I'm fixing it for my son ever 2 min when we are playing with it. the cars are cute with find sayings and songs and I'm glad they have an OFF switch!

Rated 3 out of 5 by lifebycynthia VTech Go! Go! Smart Wheels- Construction Playset
We received the VTech Go! Go! Smart Wheels- Construction Play set for review purposes. Our 3 year old son was very excited to play with this toy. We like that they play set encourages pretend play and teaches shapes, vocabulary, and fine motor skills. The multiple track configurations is a good idea. We like that this set is compatible with other Go! Go! Wheels play sets. The weigh station chute did not hold well and easily fell apart during play. This caused a lot of frustration for our child, it would have been better if the piece clicked into place and stayed connected. If this were fixed we would have rated this with another star. Overall our son enjoyed it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Josephine A fun educational toy for young children
The construction playset comes with 15 tracks, a crane, cargo loader, gas station and a weight station and a smart vehicle dump truck that responds to 6 SmartPoint locations with fun phrases, music and sound effects. This set sometimes keeps my 3 year old entertained even for a hour.
Like any Go Go smart wheel set, your child can decide how he wants to play with this and follow steps to unload to cargo, lift in using the crane and load the dump truck. He can decide when the dump truck needs refueling or the cargo needs to be weighed. I hear my toddler do it differently each time. It definitely helps his motor skills and imaginative skills.
The installation and assembly is pretty straight forward . We had some issue with the loading chute staying in place but on contacting Vtech, they promptly sent me a replacement and were willing to send me an additional entirely new set if I needed it. I love their customer service and will definitely buy from them.
