"I bought this steam train set for my 2YO as a birthday present. He loved it, but the steam engine just stopped working within a week. I tried changing the batteries and that didn't work either. I exchanged the train set for the same one at Big W, South Yarra (which was where I originally bought the train set from) . I had to travel overseas a few days after that and brought the unused set with me to keep my son entertained. The new steam engine toy worked but only for a couple of days! New batteries, again, did not help. We were very disappointed. I think it might be a product design issue."
