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.

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 in our Fort Wayne, Indiana factory using domestic and global components.

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.

A Kid's Review on September 17, 2010
Package Type: Standard Packaging
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!!!

Like most Americans, I'm tired fo seeing "Made in China" on almost every product. Other than the questionable quality,we have to worry about the safety factors, especially with children's toys. This toy is made in Italy and displays the quality and detail I would expect from a European country. My grandson loves riding it and I fully expect years of relaible use with the wear and tear toddlers tend to subject to their toys. I commend Amazon for making quality products available at competitive and affordable prices. Nice job Amazon.

This train is super cool. My kids 1 and 3 just love it! We bought the extra track and we set up a figure 8 in their play room. We've had it for over a week now and they both play with it every day.

Pro: Favorite toy and keeps both children busy for hours
Con: When it's in motion the sound of the motor is louder than the cute train sounds but that's about it.

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.

Great toy for my 16 month old grandson. He loves it and I can see it's going to be a favorite for a long time for him, his little brother and cousin.. Battery has been working without problem since Christmas. Only problem is there is no additional track for it even though Amazon suggests some that do not fit. I called the company and they said if enough people express an interest, they may be able to produce some. So if you love this train, call the company 1-800-728-2108 and ask them to make more tracks available. If it had more track, I'd give it five stars.

The National Products expansion kit should NOT be shown on the same page as the Peg Perego product. The tracks are not compatible In terms of rail size or connections.

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!
