My son had this train for his 7th birthday and absolutely loves it, he has always enjoyed
playing with trains and this was a bit more grown up for him, obviously it is made from lego
so does require more careful handling, if you drop it it will break! but once put together
which is all part of the fun, it is brilliant, I have brought extra track and he spends hours playing with it, it has 7 different speeds controlled by a remote control, on the downside it requires 9aaa batteries, although an expensive toy it is worth every penny.
