Product Description

Full steam ahead! This charming Peg-Perego Battery Powered CHOO CHOO Express Train will have the kids and adults alike cheering with joy. The train is appropriate for hard, smooth and flat surfaces or the track. When on the track, no steering is required. The 1.5 mph top speed will be exhilarating for the youngster, but you'll feel quite at ease. Perfect for kids up to 3 years of age.   About Peg Perego After the birth of his infant son in 1949, Giuseppe Perego was unhappy with the minimal selection of juvenile products and decided to design his own baby carriage. His wife added beautiful, functional fabrics, and the overall aesthetics caught the attention of other parents in the Peregos' small Italian neighborhood. They were inundated with requests by neighbors for carriages of their own, and Peg Perego was born. Before long, the company was introducing high chairs, strollers, and other juvenile products. With each new product, the family commitment to quality continued. Always thinking forward, Peg Perego has never rested on past products or designs; it continues to stay current with parents' changing needs and new research that highlights the health and safety of infants and juveniles. Young engineers rejoice! Practice for the real thing. Makes real sounds and features 76-inch round track. Includes 6-volt battery and charger. Maximum weight: 45 lbs.. Dimensions: 37.75L x 18W x 18.25H inches.

This is a great riding-on train for kids! I love the fact that this is an Italian company and the product is made in USA. My daughter loves this train and she loves the little musical pieces it plays when you press the red button. Your kid will also love this train and I do recommend it overall; however, the are a few things I want to point out, which is why I didn't give it five stars.

1. The weight limit on this train should be higher than 40 lbs, because my daughter is barely 2 years old and is already 30 lbs. I'm afraid that within about another year, she'll be too big to be able to ride the train.

2. There should be an additional car to hook onto this train available from the company, so that two kids can ride. But as stated above, the weight limit would need to be increased, since two kids will weigh more than 40 lbs combined.

3. This train makes engine and motor sounds, but they are very loud. The speaker is right in front of the child and this caused my daughter to be afraid of riding this train for some time initially, because it was so loud.

4. While the battery lasts fairly long, charging the battery is a bit awkward, because you have to unscrew the seat and access the battery that way. I foresee a potential problem there, because with repeated screwing and unscrewing the seat to charge the battery, the tapped hole, which is simply a plastic loop, may break off or become worn out over time.

5. They should sell additional accessories for this train set. The only accessory available from Peg Perego are additional tracks. I had to look elsewhere to purchase a Rail Road sign. I also ended up building a train station and a lighted tunnel for my daughter out of cardboard.

Again, this is a great train for your little one. But the potential for this toy is so much greater than what the company is offering.

I just got this train for my granddaughter and she absolutely loves it. She is only 15 months old but she can work it and make it go all by herself. She has no trouble staying in the seat while it is going either. Also, the track is a perfect size. I did purchase extra track but haven't even taken it out of the box yet because the original track that comes with the train is large enough. There is a button for music that is an added bonus. It even makes steam noises when the train stops. It is really cute!!!

My dad got this for my 2 and a half year old train obsessed son. It's the only toy he's been playing with since he got it yesterday. It's an adorable toy. My only complaint would be that I wish it came with more tracks, you can purchaes additional ones but they charge a lot of money for cheap plastic tracks. Overall I definatelty recommend, especially if your kid loves trains.

My son was so incredibly excited to receive this ride on train. When he first got on it, he rode it around for about 10 minutes laughing and so excited. Obviously it is a tight circle to ride on so after a few circles around, the kids bottom slides to the outside of the tracks and the train will lose balance and flip on its side. My son hit his head and became terrified of it. There is nothing holding the train ON the tracks so any imbalance will make it flip over. We finally talked my son into riding it again a couple days later and sure enough, after a few minutes, it flipped over on him again. There should be some type of weight to put on the inside of the train when going in the circle on the tracks. I called the manufacturer to ask about this problem and their response was "obviously if the child isn't centered perfectly on the seat, it will lose balance. There's nothing holding the train on the track." So... This toy can be dangerous. Please don't let your kid ride it unsupervised for any amount of time!

This is such a great toy ride on! I don't know what else to say. My son looks so cute riding on this thing it is indescribable. The only problem is that no one carries the extendable track anymore. I have tried numerous companies and no one has it, they have all discontinued it. I am hoping I can get it from Peg Pergo.

We got this for my son's 1st birthday. He laughs on it- but is constantly falling over and out the side. He also cannot press the buttons himself to make the train go. You must press and hold a button to keep train in motion. We made our own seatbelt contraption that seems to work ok. The quality is awesome and the train is super cute. I figure in a year or so this will be the perfect toy!

We got this for my son as an early first birthday gift. He uses it on the tracks and on our hardwood floor. I run an in home daycare so I have had kids from one to six ride on this. They all love it! We have had no problems and trust me, this train gets used every single day. When setting up the tracks, make sure it is on a very even surface, because we have had the train tip off the tracks when a kid leans too far to one side. The battery life is really long, I maybe charge it once a month. So here we are over two years later with the same great train we had from day one. It will be the envy of every kid that comes to your house!
