Product Description

From the Manufacturer

What could possibly be more fun than a real sounding train for your child? A train that your little engineer can ride! The new Choo Choo Express by Peg Perego offers sound effects, a driving wheel, and a circular track for hours of fun. 1-1/2 to 3 year olds love to feel in charge, and steering their own train around the track is one way to accomplish this safely. The totally enclosed wiring, motor and gearbox keep little hands safe. Powered with a rechargeable 6-volt battery, the Choo Choo Express train is designed for hours and hours of fun. Made in the USA.

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.

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!

My husband had a ride on train as a kid so of course Grandpa had to get his grandson one too! This was a 1st birthday present for my son. Ideally this is meant for kids a little older, like 2 and up. It does tip if the child isn't centered on the seat, it's pretty fast and it take a little while for a little one, like my guy, to figure out the buttons, BUT, it's still awesome. We constantly watch our son on it and if it looks like he's starting to tip it, we recenter him. We put a piece of tape over the power button so we don't have to hold it down for him until he learns to do it himself, and mommy has just learned to deal with the fact that it is way faster then she would like. Once my guy is older this will be perfect for him, and all the flaws it has now will be a thing of the past. It's really well made and I love it and so does my son!

If you are overly protective this probably isn't for you if you are getting it for a little person, but it's awesome if you can deal with little issues until your kid is a bit bigger!
