This is my almost 1-1/2 year old's first train. He was playing with a Thomas at his cousin's house so I thought I'd get him one. I was unsure about whether to get a motorized or non-motorized set but I decided to go with motorized to see if he would enjoy watching the train go on its own. When he first got it, he was a bit startled when the train moved by itself around the track. That didn't last long and he started to play with Thomas for hours per day on and off the track. At first (16 mo) he preferred for the train to be turned off but now (17mo) he prefers it on and likes to watch it go. He has also learned how to turn Thomas on and off which he couldn't do for a while. I am impressed that the toy can be played with in the off position because I expected the wheels to lock but they don't and are fully functional. When the train is on, he often holds on to the wheels and listens to them click. This is obviously not good for the toy but miraculously, it just keeps going. Only time will tell how long Thomas will survive the wrath my little guy.

The station that comes with this set is cute but he pretty much ignores it. I think it's just because he's too young right now.

Putting the track together was extremely easy and there were some stickers that needed to be put on the station but all of that took very little time. The only problem I had was installing the battery (not included) and the instructions didn't explain it too well. After a few minutes of trial and error, I finally figured it out. If you need help with that read on.

How to take the train apart to install the battery (1 AA):
1. Get a small Phillips screw driver (about 2-3mm wide)
2.

For around fifteen dollars this is a nice Trackmaster starter set. This is a plastic, battery operated Thomas that runs on plastic track. It is not compatible with the better-known wooden sets. The train has a plastic hook for connecting additional cars. The train goes pretty fast, and it uses 1 AA battery which lasts a long time. To put the battery in, pull down on the middle wheels while lifting the top off.

I am only giving this four stars because the set does not include Thomas' coaches Annie and Clarabel. These are hard to find. Before Trackmaster started making this, it was made by "Tomy". You might find Annie and Clarabel on eBay if you search for Tomy.

This is a very basic loop of track and one engine. You will want to expand it by buying additional track, coaches and engines.

We have some of the wooden trains and some of the battery operated plastic trains, and our children tend to play more with the battery operated plastic trains. They like building tracks and then watching the engines and cars go around by themselves. They especially like having switches to switch the trains onto other tracks.

My mom got this toy for my son who is 6. was going to return it because I thought it was too young for him. He LOVES it. She bought him extra tracks to go with it and he is having a blast trying to figure out different track patterns. It is one of his favorite gifts, i would not have expected that. I gave it a high rating on the educational value as well only because my kid is trying to figure out new patterns, not because of anything else.

This review is really for anyone who is debating between investing significant money is the Thomas Wooden Railway versus The Thomas Trackmaster Railway versus the Take Along Thomas sets. I am not going to go into detail for the specific set shown here.

My son (age 3) lives for trains. He plays with trains for many hours per day, and has done so for the last 2 years. We have many trackmaster sets, including the one for sale here. We also have many Thomas wooden railway pieces/sets, and trains.

I will break down some the differences briefly -

Wooden Railway is:
- Usually kid powered (not motorized) but there are a handful of motorized engines available.
- Expensive, however, there are generic brands of track, stations, and accessories available from other manufacturers and are compatible. Engines typically retail for high teens to low 20's.
- Many more accessories and engines available (might be important if you have a true train nerd). My son has no less than 20 of the Thomas and Friend characters.
- Durable, but engines do lose paint at the edges
- QUIET (even the motorized engines are much more quiet than trackmaster)
- Much easier to assemble - my son could put together track at 2 years of age. The ingenious thing is that the pieces fit together rather loosely, so that perfect symmetry is not required to make a loop of track
- Detailed - engines and cars are more attractive and show greater level of detail than trackmaster.
- Smaller - typical engine is about 1/2 the height of the trackmaster engines, and the track is more narrow.
