My son slowly gasped while saying "victorrrrr" on christmas morning. I showed him that his light turns on and he talks and that was it. He got on his belly and promptly decided to play with him although he just began to open up presents and had more left, lol. Thanks Amazon.
cute...well constructed as all of these wooden engines seem to be. the battery wore out fairly quickly, tho'. perhaps just due to the button having been pushed a zillion times by my grandson? glad it was then his dad's turn to figure out that replacement. one of those teeny screwdrivers seems to be necessary.
Grandson has many wooden Thomas trains, but especially loves the talking ones. This will add to his joy. Usually expensive at local stores, if you can find one, so this along with price made my day. Arrived quickly and well packaged.
