[Costco] Costco.ca - Wood train set w table $79.99 shipped (Confirmed Cold Deal. See update.)

Spotted this deal in the Nov/Dec Costco.ca mailing last week:

Image

KidKraft Whichway Junction Train set $79.99 shipped (with return/exchange to any Costco warehouse).

For the price, the product page states that you also get a 49.3 in. x 35 in. x 17.5 in. train table. Costco made an error on their product page and this set does not include a table. What is included are 104 pieces of tracks, trains, etc. Tracks compatible with Brio / Thomas / Imaginarium.

If the quality is as good as competing wood train sets / tables, then for the price it's a good deal. (Thomas / Imaginarium tracks alone run you $40, and tables over $100).

I've ordered one and hope to get it by end of the week. Will let people know if it's any good.

Update (Nov 10, 2009)
I received the product today and it does not include a table. What you get is exactly what you find at other retailers selling the "Which way junction" set (tracks, mat, trains, but no table).

I'll be calling Costco tomorrow as their product page clearly states a table.

Update 2 (Nov 14, 2009) - Cold deal.
I never got a return call from costco.ca about this item, but the website now now has the table specs removed from the description. Consider this a cold deal.

A comparative deal is the Imaginarium Mountain Pass set on sale at TRU for $77 until Nov 19 and you don't need a membership.

On the product page under "Details", it lists a table with the dimensions.

Also the shipping weight as reported on the product page states "Weight: 26.8 kg (59 lb.)". Sounds more than just tracks and a few trains.

Again, I've ordered this and waiting to see what exactly shows up at the door. I hope it's a wood table at least, and not a plastic one.

I'd be interested to know if there is a table included as well.

Love the Mr. Sparkle avatar - best Simpsons episode ever! :cheesygri

We decided to get our kids a whole bunch of IKEA train sets and they construct the most amazing networks of tracks, bridges, stations, tunnels - something different every day. We also made a train table for them but they never use it - they seem to prefer the wide open floor, and the ability to create something new each time.

Something to consider. You can get 3 IKEA sets and a bridge/train set for $75 and go nuts...

That said, this is a cute layout - better than most...

If someone can confirm whether a table is actually included, that would be great.

UPDATE:

I got the product today and it does not include a table!!

I'll be calling Costco tomorrow to clarify if there was a missing box or if this is it.

Cold deal if $79.99 just includes the tracks and train (TRU had a better deal on Imaginarium stuff a few weeks ago).

I'll update the first post now...

Thanks OP for the updates. I was going to order it after checking out the same set (with table) cost $179.99 at Richmond Costco store. It is too good to be true that if it cost $100 less online plus free shipping. Yes, the description on their website was misleading. :confused:

Confirmed cold deal. Costco updated their product page after this was brought to their attention (and they never returned my call when they said they would :confused: ).

If you're still hunting for a deal on train sets, TRU has an imaginarium set on sale this week.
