Jeannette, Manchester

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
My grandson says it is 'the best train set in the world!' and has enjoyed many happy hours playing with it (as has his dad). He loves putting jelly babies in the freight carriages, so when it stops he can eat one. A great buy.
Bad points:
The train comes off the tracks occasionally and it is fiddly to get back on.

Confirmed purchaser Parent of young family

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Ideal first 'proper' model electric train for young children. Easy to set up and use.
Bad points:
Like a lot of toys which are made of lots of pieces it is very difficult when the track etc is taken apart to put things back in the box. I always encourage my children to do this to prevent damage when not in use.
