Q & As

Rated 2.7 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by First Class Train! Excellent toy for young grandchild. The sound effects are really good but the movement is somewhat slow and soon runs down the battery. 10 February 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Batteries compartment is hard to find It's odd but the train takes three batteries, the two button batteries come with the train so it makes a noise but it also needs a AAA battery to drive the motor. The battery compartment is really well hidden, there is a screw down the funnel at the front of the train that releases the AAA battery compartment. The train is slow but my little boy loves it. 18 October 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not the quality I expected Good looking little train. Unfortunately, it is very temperamental and the connection with the battery is poor - as a result, you think the battery needs replacing whilst it's really just poor design. 25 March 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointing Very disappointed with this train. Wheels don't even turn, let alone turn on their own, which is what we has expected for a 'battery operated train'. More boo boo than choo choo!! Makes good sounds though! 16 March 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Disappointed Very slow, the children loose interest. Batteries don't last. 11 February 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Disappointed with this product This train looks great and makes fantastic noises but unfortunately it does not move by itself, it needs to be pushed which is really annoying as I assumed battery operated meant traveling independently around my grandson's brio track. 14 January 2014
