Train bank delivers
on January 19, 2007
This bank has delivered a lot of enjoyment for both girls and boys.
On the plus side, the bank makes a pleasing steam locomotive sound, not too loud, but loud enough to entertain the kids. Assembly is very easy, and it looks great.
On the negative side, it is not the highest quality product, certainly not up to what I consider Lionel quality, but then again, the price is very reasonable. It survived the holiday party, with 7 small kids running and bumping into it and the older boys naturally playing a bit rough.
I have to say that when we have had a bunch of kids over, ages 2-10, they will line up to put change into the bank, not for hours at a time, but they seem to return to it over and over, drawn by the flashing lights and sound. It is pleasingly mesmerizing.
My recommendation, use some clear glue to cement some of the pieces together (keeping in mind that one day you will want to get the money out), and let the kids enjoy.
Definitely a recommendation for the kids that like trains. My daughter loves it!
We find hidden profits in logistics and distribution.
