Fun battery powered train
on May 11, 2012
Our two boys, 4 and 2, love Thomas. We have a large train table and set so every now and then we add new trains. They love the battery powered ones, so I searched on Amazon and found a few. Amazon has the BEST pricing on battery powered trains. They easily cost $22-$29 anywhere else.
As with other Thomas trains, the quality is good and the trains are durable. Our boys drag and toss their trains all over the house. We have stone floors but the trains keep working even after being repeatedly dropped.
We had one battery powered Charlie that didn't have the casing on properly. The screw hole was stripped from the start and couldn't be screwed tight when we put a battery in for the first time. I think it was an isolated incident though. Our other battery powered ones are fine and don't seem to have that issue.
