Customer Reviews

My son is only 2 so I'm not sure how a 3 yr old would be able to handle the on/off button.
Chrstine M. Thompson
The child has to continuously hold down a button with his hand to keep the train moving and my son couldn't do it.

Now that we have figured out how my son can ride it on his own, we are happy with this toy.

This ride on toy is great if your kids love Thomas the Tank Engine. There are only 2 poor designs on this toy:

1. Kids needs to press and hold a button to start the train throughout the ride, if your kids are under 3 years old, they could not do that for long.

2. The train will fall off the track if the rider swing left and right during the ride, my kid fell off the train once and hit his head. It's only safe if they stay still on the train while the train is going.

Other than that, it's a great toy for your little Thomas fans.

We bought this train for my 2 year old son's birthday who is fanatic about Thomas. This is a really adorable toy. The major complaint I have is that it is really hard for the kids to use. You have to hold the button constantly in order for Thomas to move. We had it at his Thomas birthday party for all the kids to ride. The 4 year olds where the only ones who could figure out how to ride it on their own. The younger ones we had to hold the button while it went round the track which makes you pretty dizzy! BUT we have found a resolution, we engineered a way for it to stay on continuously when he wants to ride. We have a rubber band which holds down a magic marker which presses the button (sounds funny). It doesn't go that fast so when he wants to stop he just says "get off". So now that we have the contraption figured out my son (us too) loves this toy. We moved it into the living room. Downside is it takes up alot of space but it is really easy to take apart and put back together. We had a little trouble with it becoming derailed when we had it outside (probably because our uneven sidewalk) but we haven't had any trouble inside with it becoming derailed. Now that we have figured out how my son can ride it on his own, we are happy with this toy. My son loves it and he looks too cute riding around on his little Thomas. But I wish they would have made it easier to operate.

I bought this toy for my son's 2nd birthday thinking it would be perfect for my obsessed Thomas toddler, especially since the age range was 18 mo - 3yrs. It is so cute and he loves it as long as I hold the button down with my hand to make it go, which gets tiring for mom and he gets bored not being able to do it on his own. The button takes some effort to push and hold down. Plus, there is a delay time once the button is pushed - a bell goes off and then it takes a couple of seconds to get moving and by that time he's taken his hand off the button to make it go. It's a bit confusing for a child his age. Friends that have come over that are 2 1/2 have difficulty with this toy also, seems like the age ranges are a bit off - better for a 3 year old and up.

I have to agree with previous reviewers that this toy has design issues which make it inappropriate for children under 3 yrs or so. It requires hand strength that 18-36 month olds do not have. Also, there is a significant delay between the child's action of pressing the button and the train starting to move. This is confusing to younger children. He solved the problem himself by sitting on top of the train so that his bum constantly pressed the button, making it go. But this makes the train top-heavy and easily tipped over. So instead, we disabled the original "on/off" mechanism and installed a switch (from radio shack). He can very easily flip the switch to turn it on or off. He loves the toy now.

My 2 yr old son and 3 1/2 yr old daughter love riding on Thomas. The only problem with this is that your child has to understand to hold down the "go" button or it will not continue to run. We had to remedy this by putting a small clamp on the button that they can easily remove when they want to stop. Also, unless the child sits real still and stays centered on the seat, the train gets very tippy. After a couple of spills, my son took a couple week break from riding on it and my daughter wouldn't try it at all. But, they have gotten over that and now ride it all the time.

Bought this for my granddaughter before she turned 15 months. SHE LOVES IT! I don't know if she is advanced for her age (all grandparents think so!) or what but she has NO PROBLEMS whatsoever figuring out the button, how to get on and off, how to hold it down, etc. She even gets 2-3 of her stuffed animals and takes them for a ride. It's so cute to see her trying to hold onto her animals and press the button but somehow she manages it. I paid $250 for it with the figure 8 track so I don't know where these places are coming up with $500-$600. WOW. Got mine from Mobileation or some such place. Excellent price and delivery. Just bought a used train (actually two trains in the deal) to get extra track for my granddaughter ($100) - the figure 8 was a little boring after a while. Will see if she wants a fleet of trains or if I can resell just the train and keep the extra track. I agree with the inconvenient battery charger. SHould have put an outlet on the outside of the train that the plug could plug into. We bought a used one (different brand) 30 years ago for our kids and even it had a jack on the outside you could plug the charger into. But... bottom line, it works great, our 15month old loves it and can work it. (PS we bought the Peg Perego "non-THOMAS" version. Maybe thats the price difference!)
