"Dear Lego, you are great and this review is by no means about your great toys. This review is specifically about the railways set that I bought for my 3-year old son.
After a long and detailed analysis of two shifter railways pieces (see pictures) included in Lego Duplo 10882, which we combined with Lego Duplo 10894 train set as recommended on the package, I am 100% certain that the shifters are defective/flawed.
The train set slides without problems on other railway pieces, but when you take the train through the shifters the wheels of the train set do not fit through and the train derails. This problem occures regardless of where the shifter is located. This makes a frustrating game-play experience for my train-freak son.
Again, we are big fans of Lego toys and we spend a considerable amount of money each month for Lego sets. Such defective pieces are difficult to come by in Lego sets so this was a real disappointment.
What would your recommendation/solution be for this problem?
