Just got him a little disappointed
on February 6, 2013
When I heard that fisher price was going to be taking over the manufacturing of the wooden railway I knew it wouldn't be the same quality as the learning curve/tomy. So I snapped up as much learning curve stuff as possible. Boy I'm I glad I did. When I first looked at the package it looked ok. I opened only to find parts on the body that are plastic. I compared it to my learning curve stuff and the whole body of their trains are wooden. The only part that is plastic is the steam shafts which is impossible to make wooden. On the fisher price on it has the shafts plus the part between the front and the steam box/conductor area. On a whole it just felt different and cheaper then the other brand.
It's not to say that I won't buy the fisher price stuff I just know not to expect the same as learning curve. The plastic part wouldn't even be noticed by kids or most people but since I was looking for the quality compared I noticed.
