As a Mom to 4 imaginative boys, I’m always hunting for new and exciting things for them to play with. When I received an e-mail about SmartMax Toys I jumped at the opportunity to receive samples for testing. I was thrilled when the boxes arrived. The products were larger than I expected, colorful and my kids couldn’t start playing with them fast enough! Take a look at the SmartMax My First Safarai and My First Train here.

When these boxes arrived, inside another box, I was both impressed with size and weight. They are lightweight and have a nice size. The two are often not related. Makes them hurt less when a toddler chucks them and they hit someone’s head. Happens every so often! Also, easy to store and take to Grandma’s.
My boys ever so patiently waited for me to photograph these. I knew that if I handed them over, I’d n ever get a chance to take photos! However, after watching me put the set together and play a bit…they took these items and completely reinvented how they work. They mixed up the animals, train cars and everything. Despite the colors and set suggestions, these toys 100% went imagination wild with my boys.

These are really great sets and a great, durable train for little hands that doesn’t have the loose wheels and choking hazards many others do. The colors are entertaining, this inspires imagination and I personally think they’re really cute! This is easy to clean, my kids enjoy the sets and the company makes a huge assortment of sets that all work together!
I love the fact that all of the sets work together. It makes gifting easy and building a collection that will really last. As a Mom to 4 boys. I need things that can be expanded…a toy built for only one set of hands leads to arguing. This certainly has enough pieces that all 4 of my sons, ages 1-6, sit together in a nice circle and play together with limited arguing.
Downsides. If you’re a no-to-plastic person, this is plastic of some sort. I did contact the company directly and they report that their toys are BPA-free. You can visit SmartMax’s website for details and shop their huge selection on Amazon with 2-day Prime shipping.
