Now and then, LEGO will find a way of combining two big trends together for a must-have set. The Disney Train and Station 71044 Lego Set does this by using the colour and fun of Disney with the ever-popular theme of trains. Builders can create the Disney Train and its station with great detail while children help out and play with the minifigures. The combination of ideas and themes means that it should be a hit with the whole family. Add in the functionality of the train and this is a real showstopper in a LEGO collection.
The Disney theme is in full effect but there is still plenty of detail and authenticity to the train
There is no doubt that this is a Disney-themed set. The station carries the trademark imagery and looks as though it was relocated straight out of Disneyland. Flags are flying from the roof with the Disney logo, cute details lie in the architecture and there are plenty of characters to play with. The minifigures include Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Chip and Dale and Goofy. They can man the station, drive the train and travel around the park in style. The interior of the station offers plenty of opportunities for creative play with the various rooms and accessories.
Parents will be more interested in building and perfecting the train and its track. This train build contains the beautiful locomotive engine, tender, passenger car and a parlour car. Each piece is fitted out with the right furnishings and looks great. The engine has oversized whistles, a smokestack and a light to add to the authenticity. It runs on a track made up of 16 curved pieced and 4 straight pieces. To add to the immersive experience of playtime, LEGO has paired this set up with the LEGO Powered Up app. This lets players control the sounds of the train as it travels around. The train is powered by the Powered Up 88009 Hub and the LEGO Powered Up 88011 Train Motor.
Create endless adventures with these brilliant characters
There is so much for adults to build in this set and plenty for kids to play with. There is also the promise of a surprise for them in the clock tower. Take your time building this beautiful Disney Train and Station 71044 Lego Set together and enjoy the details of the interiors, characters and carriages. You won’t be stuck for inspiration for storylines with so much to do.
