  • £49.99
  • 6 Months – 3 Years
  • 3 AAA Batteries (included)

Ninky Nonk Musical Activity Train Review Visuals

The Ninky Nonk Musical Activity Train is a lovely, big size for little Night Garden fans. An almost exact replica of the Ninky Nonk they all love so dearly! There’s 4 buttons and 2 blue flashing lights on the engine. Each carriage is durable, as it’s lived through a hell of a lot of throws and crashes from my 1 year old, but it does scratch easily which is a shame, but hey, it’s a preschoolers toy!

Dimensions; 21.5 x 28.2 x 54.4 cm.

Ninky Nonk Musical Activity Train Review

My little one has been a fan of In The Night Garden since she was about 6 months old. She absolutely adores the Ninky Nonk Musical Activity Train! There’s so much for your little one to do, it’s at least 3 essential baby toys (stacker, shape sorter, pull along) all wrapped up into something from their favourite show! All the carriages clip together so your child can pull the whole Ninky Nonk behind them.

My little one loves to dance to the character theme songs, she’ll push the button, have a little boogie and then point at the character picture and ask “Woss thaa?!” waiting to hear someone say “Iggle Piggle!” or “Makka Pakka!” it’s a lovely interactive activity toy!

You can buy all the pieces separately, say if you just want the engine or the shape sorter. I personally think the only carriage worth buying alone would be the musical engine though. The other carriages are nice, but they’re not as good on their own. There are a lot of better stand alone shape sorters and stackers to choose from.

The Ninky Nonk does all clip together, but can come apart easily when pulled by an eager baby. A lot of the time I just see her running along with the engine, but she’s amazed when she manages to pull the whole thing! It brings a lot of joy into her little life!

The Ninky Nonk Musical Activity Train would definitely be worth a buy if your baby is a fan of the show, it does so much and it’s so familiar to them, it’s sure to bring them joy!
