Customer Reviews

The kids love them with all the sounds, and have various train engine toys in and out of roundhouse.
Amazon Customer
It is hard to get them to stay up on the risers and there is no point except that it helps the cars "run" out of the roundhouse when you pop the doors open.
A. Hartman
It makes the visuals look pleasing of your train arrangement, but I found that the kids don't seem to play with it much.

Within a very short time (days) of getting this item, I kept noticing that my kids kept knocking one of the doors off (usually the far right one because it's opening is the most awkward out of them all). Then I I would see two off, and then three, and well, you get the picture. I got so sick of popping them back into place, that I just took all of them off completely. In a way, it's almost better that they pop off with force, because if they didn't, they may just break off, and then you can't put them back at all.

It's the centerpiece of the train setup, and it takes up A LOT of the table. We don't have the pricey Thomas table, just a generic one that is only about an inch-and-a-half shorter, but the roundhouse takes up a ton of space. It's also very hard to make a full connecting layout to all the roundhouse's connectors. You need a lot of track, especially the small curved ones. You definitely can't buy a lot of other large buidlings/pieces to go along with it. It makes the visuals look pleasing of your train arrangement, but I found that the kids don't seem to play with it much. They usually run the trains around without going through it or using it. They are both under 4, so maybe when they are older they will get more use out of it, and we can put the doors back! The sounds are nice, the push button mechanisms to release the trains work perfect, and the tools in the back are a nice touch, so despite my greivances, it does have some good points. You just have to decide if you want to shell out the dough. I would think it over about whether you want to just buy 4 or 5 nice play buildings to take up your table, which the kids may play with more, or this one very large piece they may get bored with.

I wish I had read these other reviews more closely before I splurged on this overpriced roundhouse! I regretted it as soon as we started playing with it. The doors haven't fallen off yet, though one of them doesn't close very well, and we don't have a train table (though we were planning to get one), but here are the things I don't like about this roundhouse and wish I had known before I bought it:

1. The trains go up on these strange risers behind the doors. It is hard to get them to stay up on the risers and there is no point except that it helps the cars "run" out of the roundhouse when you pop the doors open. It is less engaging for kids because they cannot see all the way through the roundhouse and can't reach in to manipulate the trains. My son (4) just said to me, "mommy, can we get the roundhouse that I can put my hands into in back?"

2. The turntable is very limiting. You can't have all of the trains sitting outside of the round house "in the yard" as they would in the books or videos, and you are limited to using the turntable outside of the roundhouse since you need it to get the trains out. Also, you need special peices to make multiple tracks link back up with the turntable since you have to use all of the "male" peices for the roundhouse doors and are left only with "female" connectors (or is it the other way around?).

The sounds and tools in the back don't add enough extra fun to make up for these deficiencies. I bought this expensive piece as a treat for my son from Santa and he already wishes he had the "green roundhouse." What a disappointment. I'd return it right now if I could and would get the simple roundhouse with the turntable separately--and save myself $50-$75!

We received one of these for my son's Christmas present in 2005. Immediately one of the doors came off. So I returned it and got a new one. A couple of days later the red door came off again. I should have returned it but never did. I find the unit frustrating. I would probably buy the simpler model without doors that open and close to save the frustation and money.

It looks great. Within two seconds (when I was just checking it out myself) the doors fell off and they don't open when the buttons are pushed half the time. I think for the price these things should work. Lost two of the red doors already, wondering where I can buy replacement doors?
My son likes it anyway. Likes the whole set in general and plays with it everyday. Has a magenetic light and sound signal which was much less but is his favorite piece.

This roundhouse is the biggest and baddest of all. You do need to allocate an area (preferably hardwood floor) for this and the rest of the track set. The round house design is sturdiest of all wood/plastic train roundhouses. The kids love them with all the sounds, and have various train engine toys in and out of roundhouse. The doors easily snap off and can disappear for weeks if you let it! I'd like to give the designers the benefit of the doubt. Snapping off is much better than get pulled and broken off by kids. But the good thing is no matter how much abuse, the doors snap right back in. The turn table's guard rails are the same way - easy to snap off.

The roundhouse is so big sometimes after putting the tracks away, it occupies its own space at a corner of the room or on the train table, and the kids can have fun with it equally without extending tracks.

As with all toys, at some point they will stop playing. Ours lasted couple of years. The good news is it has good amount of interests in the used market.
