2/5 Nicola 'Got this for my nephew who is loves trains. the trains themselves look good. Only one of them lights up/moves etc, its supposed to pull the other two along the tracks, it doesnt. The tracks themselves are terrible quality, the train does not stay on them and always falls off. I didnt return it as it was on sale and my nephew did love the actual trains and was happy to play without the tracks. Had I paid the full price I would have took back in a second.'

4/5 Speedy 'Good value for the money.'
5/5 Adam 'Very good quality toys, fun and durability'
1/5 Karen 'Two of the track pieces didn’t fit together properly, resulting in the track bending and lifting off the floor. Also, the screw to the battery compartment of the train was impossible to remove, so no battery could be fitted. So the track was sub-standard and the train couldn’t be operated. Luckily, I checked it before giving it to a child for his 4th birthday. But I resent the waste of time and effort checking it, returning it, then going elsewhere to buy another present.'
