LOVED the idea of it, wished it had ACTUALLY worked!
on 3 January 2013
This had the potential to be an excellent buy. My son and I were initially really excited to get it out of the box on Christmas Day and get it set up. It all seemed excellent to start with, we'd bought several of the cars to go with it (the garage itself only comes with one) and my little boy was having fun pushing the cars around the circuit and finding out how it all worked. That's where the fun ended. Literally a few minutes after we had started playing with it, we noticed the sound coming from the garage kept sticking. This gradually got worse during Christmas Day and soon became unbearable. Without the sound, the garage is rendered pretty much useless - you might as well just buy the cars and buy a cheap garage. But that's not the point is it? The only reason I bought this garage is because it cleverly recognises each car and responds accordingly. We can't do this now, it is just unbearable to listen to. Stupidly, I was really organised this Christmas, bought it a the end of September to help spread the cost of Christmas this year and now consequently, I can neither return it or obtain a refund. If it had cost me a tenner, I wouldn't be so bothered but it was £30 reduced from £40. I don't have the money to replace it but I feel I should do as it's not fair on my son. :( I've never had a problem with Amazon or a product I've bought from them before so I'm very disappointed with this
