Hasbro toy company is a local Rhode Island, about 10 miles from my house. I have been a fan of Hasbro for a long time now and they have been known to make some great, innovative, and fun toys for kids of all ages. Two toys that we recently received were the Sesame Street Rails and Road Train Set for Zane and My Little Pony-Princess Twilight Sparkle Pony for Hayley.
Playskool Sesame Street Rails and Road Train Set:
This is the ultimate train set for little boys and girls who love Sesame Street. This train set has over 10 feet of train tracks that could be set up as a huge roadway for your kids to play with. You can also fold the track over for 2 in 1 Rails and Road play. One of Zane’s favorite features of this set is to see Elmo’s train roll on the tracks and hear all the letters/numbers. It is not only a fun toy to play with but an educational one as well.
You will also receive Grover’s taxi which allows for songs and sounds effects when in use. Your kids can play with this set for hours and if you want to put it away, you can simply fold it for easy transport or to store it out of the way. The only extra you will need is 2 AAA batteries to get this set working. Everything else is included for play fun- the station and track (24 pieces), Elmo train and rail car, Grover taxi, instructions, and label sheets.
You can purchase this set at Amazon, Walmart, Toys R’ Us, and other retailers where Playskool is sold.
My Little Pony-Princess Twilight Sparkle Pony:
Hayley is totally obsessed with My Little Pony! She collects them all and has many of the DVDs to go along with each of her favorites. Now, there is the My Little Pony-Twilight Sparkle Pony that does so much including singing, twirling, talking, and dancing. When Hayley received this, she automatically took it out and started playing with it. When you touch Twilight Sparkle Pony, she will light up, as well as fluttering when you glide her along any surface. It is like magic to a 5 year old!
Along with all the magical powers, it comes with a comb, necklace, tiara, and 4 barrettes so your kids can get Twilight Sparkle Pony ready for any occasion. It allows for imaginative play for all ages and is a hit for any My Little Pony fan. It is available where My Little Pony is sold including HasbroToyShop, Amazon, Target, and more.

I always loved Sesame Street products when my kids were little. I think it was because I was able to relate to the characters whereas I didn’t have the same sentimental attachment to newer shows.

The Sesame Street Rails and Roads is very cute! I like the way it’s all close enough together that smaller children can access everything.
Those both looks so cute!! My nephew would have LOVED the Sesame Street toy just a couple years ago. How fun!
My daughter is a Huge fan of My Little Poney!! She will love those sparkling ones!
The My Little Pony is so sweet! I used to play with those and now my girls do!
When my three-year-old son first saw this toy, he was overwhelmed with joy and shout out “oh wow!” He already had a few Elmo toys and even another toy train, but the combination is a hit with kids! It took my wife and me a little while to put the tracks together and place the stickers in the right places, but when it was done, our son was very happy. The Elmo train engine sings and makes sound effects. The Grover car doesn’t make any noise, but can fit nicely on the train car (that even has a ramp for Grover’s car to drive up onto the train). There are groves on the track that make Elmo sing about numbers when he drives on the “numbers” tracks and sing about the alphabet when he drives on the “alphabet” tracks. Overall, kids will like it and it is durable.
