"Ok, so we were trying to come up with something for Christmas for our 3 1/2 year old grandson. I saw this in some ad, and logged in to check it out. Decided it was way cute...shared with husband who agreed. Bought this set plus extra tracks. It was a hit! He loves trains...I have the Christmas train and he loved that. So when he got his own train, he was pleased. It is far cooler than we ever imagined. Mom and Dad were also thrilled. All in all, a hit! Quick and easy to set up. It is easy for him to handle on his own."
