LEGO is a toy manufacturer of the highest calibre and this train-set proves it. I got this as a Christmas present to my six year old boy and he was thrilled. He managed to assemble it in approximately forty five minutes while I was making sure he was not missing any step and despite the fact that we had no batteries and that he was only able to run in manually once he finished, he loved it.
Now this train is perfect for a six-year old boy who is into LEGO City kits but for an older kid or a grown-up LEGO fan there are some features missing that might be disappointing. For example, The train has no doors. Unlike other LEGO city kits, like the yellow bus that comes with the pizza restaurant and its bus stop, the only way to insert mini figures inside it, is by lifting its roof. Not very realistic.
Yet the colours, the design the stop etc are all very nice and make a very nice set indeed.
+ design = this is a truly modern electric train colours = the red is much better than the white of its predecessor. train stop = its basic but cleverly designed and well equipped
- no doors = mini figures can be inserted by lifting the roof tracks = provided you want to have your train running in a closed shape the only one you can make is a small ellipse passenger wagons = there is only one and you cannot buy more separately
