My little grandson loves anything that is Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends. While out shopping for Christmas presents last year, my husband and I came across this Thomas train and felt that our grandson would love to have it so we bought it. It was a little costly but it had so many neat features we felt that it would be worth it.
This train was well worth the money as it truly does all the things a real ive train does.. It is an infared remote controlled train that has real magical steam. We thought that was such a neat thing as it actually worked. We were having lots of fun with it.
We were in awe when trying out the train, it chugged forward and as it did, it puffed real steam. In addition to the steam, as the train moved forward it played the Thomas theme song and we heard the sounds of the brakes and pistons when the train came to a halt. We were like two little kids playing around with this train. They didn't make things like this when we were younger!
My husband and fell in love woth this remote controlled train and knew that it was a real good purchase for our grandson.When our grandson opened it up on Christmas day, he was thrilled. He has had more fun playing with it since that very first day. We highly recommend this remote controlled Thomas train to all young fans of this children's character toy.
