“A Big Christmas Surprise”

For the cost this enjoyable little train was a HUGE Christmas hit with our 2 year (nearly 3) old grandson when he came on Christmas morning to find this running beneath our tree! He smiled and played with it FOR HOURS. Really easy control to use. Easy setup – yes lots of plastic, but still nicely made and assembled together. Instructions that came with it were incorrect for how to install the batteries in the coal tender or I would have rated a 5 stars. I guess they changed the model but didnt publish fresh directions. The box it comes in is worth a mention since in many cases a train in this way is packed out and pulled out each Christmas. The packaging and box are ideal for this kind of usage. Everything has a nice fantastic place in the large high density foam and then an extremely neat cover over everything (apply a couple little pieces of packing tape) and everything is safe and sound for packing off till next year! Dont forget to pull on batteries out of the controller along with the coal tender. I would guess this ought to hold up under use by fairly young kids for quite a while. ****** Update December 2016 ******Third Christmas after storage in the attic each year. Everything has held up like fresh and currently there are just two grandsons who get excited to see that appear beneath the tree. Not certain it will last for a family heirloom, but it’s surely holding up well.

“Excellent Little Train”

Great little train. However, likely such a great price since both message that perform are both Polar Express (Tom Hanks voice), not Frosty. No biggie for me.

“My Granddaughter Loved This Train”

My granddaughter loved this particular train. She wished to hear the whistle blowing and watch go around the paths. She attempted to sing along with Frosty the Snowman song.

My son LOVED this Christmas train, and it holds up soooo much better than the inexpensive department store ones you can get around Christmas time.

“Enjoy The Sounds And The Size Of The Train”

Surprised hubby with this for his birthday. Really like the sounds and how big the train. We had a few issues with keeping it on the trail, but fantastic product in general.

“Great Value”

Great train. Tracks don’t stay together nicely though. Cant complain too much though because it does come with far more track then most sets. Fit round the Christmas tree really good with plenty of room for presents.
