I'm so happy with this purchase. I've been looking for a Christmas train for a long time. They were just too expensive even off season. I bought this at an incredible price. The reviews were good and I agree. The train is much bigger than I expected. The figures move, the music is awesome and it even has a remote. The only thing missing that I would have loved would be smoke but I can live without it. I saw the same train at a local store for almost double the price! So go ahead and buy it. You won't regret it!
Great buy. My 5 year son wants to play with " HIS" train everyday. When it's time to put it up after Christmas, he's going to be one sad little fella. Train was easy to set up and the price was awesome, only $29.99 with free shipping.
Nice Large Train set to go around the Christmas tree or set up to run anywhere, anytime, sturdy large 20 feet of track, easy to put together, detailed large cars, with moving parts, lights & sound & remote control. Great Value for the money, got it On sale and Shipped free ( even better ) grandaughter loved it and could manage the remote and train by herself.
The overall look of the set is nice. It has a rich, pricy appearance. Set up was quick and straight-forward. Didn't really need instructions. The remote works well and from a reasonable distance. Remote functionality is adequate, controls forward and backward motion, stop and sound. The kids love it. The problems I have with it are the motor noise is quite loud, the individual cars does not have lights (only the train), the train gets derailed too easily and the sound volume is not adjustable. But overall I am pleased with the purchase.
I was searching for a Christmas train for around my tree for awhile that would suit our needs and was not too expensive. I came across this one that not only plays music but has elves that go up and down and the price was right. I have two boys and they absolutely love it as do I. It is easy to put together and is adorable. The only complaint I had is that within a week the battery died and we really didn't have it on that much. Since we will only take out during the holidays it wasn't a big deal to me. Great buy!
My grandson (2 years old) absolutely loves trains! He saw this at a friend's house and wouldn't leave without the promise of finding one for him. Luckily, your product finder located one about 10 miles away (great feature BTW) and it was waiting for us when we got there. He was able to easily operate it and just loves it! Great product! (it does need batteries!)
For the price this is a good train set. The tracks do not allow too much alteration for space allotment. The tracks are not permanently locked to maintain continuous travel. You need to check them after a short while of usage. I have this train set for Christmas because I enjoy the smiles it creates in my young grandchildren. In fact, I like it that much I ordered this one after I purchased one for my home in Florida when we celebrated Christmas there.
I really love the train but the sound of the train drowns out the music and it falls off the track very easily. It was a little bigger than I expected, also. Little things that could be fixed by the designer. I did buy two more on black friday for presents. All in all an affordable train.
I paid $30 for this train from HomeDepot.com. We couldn't be happier! Runs smooth, nice music and sound effects. Motor is a little loud, but that is ok. And some of the plastic wheels squeak, but I'm sure it's nothing a little oil wouldn't fix.
Overall, we are very happy with this purchase. It looks great under our Christmas Tree! (Christmas Tree, not a Holiday Tree...)
This is my 3rd set. woreout 1st set in three years of use with grandson. Kept the track and now own two engines and 3 sets of cars and tracks which can be used together. Tracks get loose after much use but can be held together with rubberbands. A good toy which allows child to be creative in track setup and use of other play sets to set up a town.
Picked it up on Black Friday for $25. It was easy to put together; we set it up under the Christmas tree. The remote makes it easy for the kids to operate and it kept them busy while my husband and I decorated the tree. The music is a bit repeatative and quality is a bit off but other than that, it was a perfect add on to the decor.
This is a fun-for-kids train set that meets expectations for the price. The track is easy to assemble and plenty long enough to go around the base of our 8' Christmas Tree with room to spare. The train doesn't like to go backwards (click, click, click, ...) but is fine forwards. The "music" isn't great and always restarts from the first song if you stop it. However, this is a cheap price for a remote control train and makes for a great value if seen that way. The only other reviewer so far must have had pieces missing from the box, as any one of the tracks can be made if the pieces are all there.
