This is a very nice train set
My son is 6 and loves this set...we have not had any problems and the price is great...he spends hours playing it...not sure why the negative reviews....if your child loves trains he will love this set
For an older child
I have read the other reviews and can understand where some of the people are coming from. My grandson is 10, I ordered this train set to play with while he is here since the Lionel trains take up so much space. It takes time to get used to the way of this set. First off, I did have to send back the original train, the engine did not work, I received the new set and worked with my grandson in setting it up. The track has to be pressed together until you hear a click, the train has 2 speeds and in order to run on the high speed, the track needs to be set up so there are no sharp turns. Set up properly, the train will not jump the tracks. We set it up on the kitchen table, and had some sharp turns, so I told my grandson to use the slower speed to run the train.
It is more or less like Thomas the train, but geared for an older child. the set is huge! An adult does need to help set it up and experiment with the speeds. I wish QVC had the freight engine to go along with it....LOL I am very pleased!
Surprised at the poor reviews! I got this, also, for our grandson for Christmas to keep at our house and he loves it! The track stays together and the cars stay on the track and the breakers work, too. My only complaint is it does eat up the batteries. Have to change them often. That's the reason for the four stars. Our three year old grandson loves it, too, I had gone on line and saw this train in the Christmas lineup and thought about ordering it for the three year old when I saw these poor reviews. HMMMMM???
I bought this for my grandson - he was elated to have a train set. But what a disappointment. The tracks didn't all fit together - so we sent it back for another - then had the same problem. The train's cars fall off the tracks - the tracks don't stay together - it's cheaply made - I won't even spend the money to send it back - it's going in the trash - with a lesson learned for us. DO NOT BUY THIS !!!! It's a waste of money. I'd give it no stars if I could.
Gave this to my grandson for Xmas. He was so happy to get a train set. However, after setting it up he was disappointed. The train would not stay on the track and kept falling off. At times the train would not even go. Not worth the money. I am sending it back.
not worth it!
Bought this for my 4yr old son as a big christmas present. We set it up on christmas morning and were extremely disappointed! The train would not stay on the track with more than 4 cars and the brake tracks kept stopping the train, even though it was not set to brake. We are sending it back.
