We got this for my son when he was 2 1/2ish. My son is about to turn 3 in a week and Cranky is kind of in need of replacement. Not that I will be replacing him, since that is a lot of money to put out for one toy of such limited use and value to begin with. But at the time I bought it, Cranky was ten bucks off at TRU and seemed like a good toilet training incentive. (It was!)
Well, my son has had a lot of fun with Cranky. I don't know why he likes him so much, but he does. The problem is... Cranky's head comes off. Just like everyone is saying. It's not a huge deal, as it is easy enough for mom or dad to pop back on, but the neck and neck hole of the head are kind of D shaped, so the head has to be lined up just so, which makes it more of a challenge (and frustration) for a child. And it comes off ALL THE TIME, more and more easily as time goes by. That's the first problem... and maybe it's really not a HUGE problem, for all I know, if Cranky's head wasn't made to pop off, maybe it would have been BROKEN off by now. Who knows?
The other problem is, Cranky no longer cranks quite right. If you turn the knob... the magnet will lower about an inch and a half, two inches... then nothing will happen for a bit... then it will just drop down to the bottom. Then you can wind it up and it repeats.
I have taken Cranky apart and I can't seem to fix this.
Now, fortunately, my son doesn't seem to mind a whole lot, as he is content to carry Cranky around by his [severed] head while chanting "Cranky the CRANE.Read more ›
As for Cranky losing his head...his head is meant to fall off and then can be fitted easily back on (break-away). It is not as big a deal as the last reviewer made it. It definitely didn't stop us from keeping him.
As for the 4 star rating...I think it is a little pricey for what you get.
Two years later and Cranky is still crankin' it out at Sodor Island at our house. I would recommend it for any Thomas fan!
