Ravensburger BRIO World - Battery Powered Engine
Size: One Size|Colour: Green|Change
Price:£12.99+ Free shipping with Amazon Prime

on 21 December 2017
It's a beautiful engine. My children love it. It has a nice front light. It is capable of climbing moderately steep BRIO bridges, but not the very steep ones and certainly not when pulling wagons, but this even happens to real life trains. The worst part about it is that it does not turn off by itself, so with small children you have to keep replacing the batteries as the engine does not make much noise and it keeps being left on. It is hard to turn it off, with such a small distance between forward, off and back.

Strictly for the father to play with, not the child. Let's face it, the father has to give the circuit a test run, with the bridges and sidings and tunnels and carriages.......! The screw is a bit fiddly to turn when replacing the batteries (use rechargeable), other than that a brilliant toy.
Must dash, I'm building a bridge.......

I bought this for my grandson to replace a similar one in yellow which seemed to have lost its power. However, this one is much the same and still has difficulty going up over bridges etc. He still has fun with it but it struggles a bit when other carriages are added.

We have the little shunter/freight loco as well and compared to that this wee chap is rubbish. Too slow and devours batteries. The kids always go for the freight shunter rather than this so it may be getting retired after only a month or so

Disappointed with the rate this green train goes through batteries. I thought it must have been the brand of batteries we were using but having now used multiple brands including rechargeable, the speed is just the same. Very slow, the light fades within minutes of a new battery and it can't many carriages or go up hills. We also bought the yellow and red Brio battery train and this is much faster and lasts longer. This makes me think the green version was not worth the money and that it needs to be improved.

A fun toy but breaks easily if pushed along the track. An adult would understand that it’s not designed to be pushed but explaining it to a 3yr old is harder. Not the fault of the manufacturer but something to be mindful of if allowing young children to play with it.

Really nice little train provides loads of fun for the little one and friends to play with , battery lasts for ages and is surprisingly powerful for its size and really great for freaking out the cat :)

Was concerned by other review underlying no enough power, of course Brio could offer a 3volts version, with Aa battery type instead of 1.5vwith Aaa battery however this one replace perfectly the original one and did not have issue with the power pulling up to the hill 5 vagons, i used good battery though with of 800mha tomorrow will test 11000mha for longer life and higher power

Great toy. My son loves it. Only thing is the battery doesn't last long at all.

Unlikely many of our other battery powered Brio compatible engines this one is still going strong. However, it is ludicrously slow. I worried initially that this might be battery related as the front light appeared dim. However, multiple new batteries later the performance is unchanged.
