Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Young engineers can control Thomas' every move in this big remote control train set! A touch of the controller moves Thomas forwards or backwards with a chug of his engine. Another button stops him with a hiss of his brakes. Includes whistles and other sound effects. Twist the turntable to allow Thomas to enter the shed and watch its doors open and close as Thomas enters or leaves the shed. Watch as Thomas's expression changes as he chugs through the mountain while Harold waits on the helipad.

I don't think there is much danger of a toddler not loving this set. I'll just put forward a few points that those purchasing the set might like to consider...

* Remote controlled Thomas has to be permanently coupled to his wagon because that is the battery compartment. Toddlers might not care, but older children (and adults!) might find this a bit frustrating as it just looks wrong.
* Remote controlled Thomas needs three AAA batteries, compared to one battery in other engines, plus three more in the remote control.
* If you prefer rechargeable batteries you'll have to get used to the 'low battery' light on Thomas flashing in use as it doesn't take long for it to appear even with freshly charged batteries.
* Sound effects are not optional with the remote control.
* Remote control Thomas has to be used with the remote control. He cannot be pushed around by hand as the other Track Master engines can.
* The engine sheds are a little fiddly to assemble and not robust in use.
* The engine sheds have no back to them so look a bit silly from some angles.
* The turntable will take one engine (it just about holds Thomas plus his wagon) as you might expect, but to decouple engines from their wagons or trains requires a couple of hands and lifting and/or twisting and this might restrict the play value.
* Unless you have other engines the turntable is definitely of limited play value.
* The bridge isn't on high enough risers to function as a railway flyover (compared with Echo Cave).

I bought this set at half price. At full price I suspect that one of the other sets might have turned out to be a better purchase.

Update (after 22 months): I stand by all the above comments. I will also add three more.

Great fun. Seems durable. The new trackmaster track is superior to the old blue track. It's more rigid and withstands kick and trample damage. Construction is quite easy, but beware - 6 AAA batteries are required and they're not included. The face changing feature is priceless.

My grandson is almost 3 years old, when i set this up for him he was delighted, so was his 10 month old sister.she soon had the track in bits, but the track is so durable and strong he had no problems putting it all back together on his own.The face change is great, the sheds are quite good as well.Its a very good system for a 3 year old to start his train set with.

My 3 and 2 yrs old boys loved this toy, the remote control is easy for both of them to use, the track is easy to fit together and very robust. The only down side is that the shed construction is not that easy to put together and very easy for the boys to knock apart. Mum and Dad seem to be forever re-building it! The turntable is good and strong and easy to move round. Overall a great toy and it is played with a lot!!
