Chad Valley Airport Playset Review


Just before Christmas we got a special delivery from Chad Valley. As we are part of the Chad Valley Play Panel, little J was sent the Chad Valley Airport Playset to try out. It was perfect timing as little J was getting fed up waiting for Santa to bring him new toys. Little J absolutely loves everything that involves cars, planes or trains so the Chad Valley Airport Playset was the perfect choice. 

The playset was fairly easy to put together however there are lots of stickers which took up a lot of time. Once it was set up I was surprised how big it was. It comes with a colourful play mat too.






The main feature of the playset is the tower. This is where the lights and sounds come from and it also has a fully working lift. You pop your vehicle in the lift and spin the top of the control tower to bring the vehicle to the top. 



The tower is connected to a large ramp which leads the vehicle to parking bays. There are two levels of parking each with spaces for 3 vehicles. 


The helipad overlooks the airport and the set comes with a rescue helicopter, ready to help out if needed.








 There is a working conveyor belt which you can pop the luggage (2 suitcases included) on to and when you turn the lever they drop down on to a baggage carrousel. Little J likes to pop his cars on there too. 


There are two petrol pumps ready to fill the planes and cars up with fuel. 



The set comes with a large plane which opens at the front and back. It fits cars and luggage in so perfect to extend play. 



The play mat has lots of detail including runways, taxi ranks and building designs. The vehicles included can use the roads to transport passengers to the plane and the luggage transporters to the cargo hold. 


There is so much fun to be had playing with the Chad Valley Airport Playset, it will keep your little ones entertained for hours. Little J has played with it every day since he received it and it is probably one of his favourite playsets at the moment.

What We Loved

Big playset with lots of features

Working lift in the control tower

Lights and sounds makes it more realistic.

The play mat is a great bonus and really adds to the play.

The working conveyor belt for the luggage is fun 

Lots of vehicles included although little J has added his own too. 

What Could Improve

Another plane would have been a good addition, maybe a smaller die cast similar to the other vehicles.
