4.0 out of 5 stars Built to last 7 Jun 2011
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
We have a number of these engines for my son's Thomas Take and Play (or Take Along) set. James comes with his coal tender, which attaches magnetically to the back of James (as do the other engines and rolling stock in the set). The die cast engine is well built, with toddlers and pre-schoolers in mind, and will withstand a fair bit of abuse with minimal chipping. As such, they have excellent second hand value. The name of the character is imprinted on the bottom, and the magnets are integral to the toy, making them very safe for little ones. The face is well detailed and the toy gives an accurate representation of the character overall. Great build quality and good detail make this a winner.

My 1 year old Grandson loves these books as he can make the characters move and I get a few minutes to sit and cuddle an otherwise very active run around toddler.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely toy 8 July 2014
By Shezzle
We bought the take and play Tidmouth Sheds set so these trains are to go with it. My two year old daughter adores the trains and set so much. They are good quality. The sets are not big so expect small trains.
