The railway station is a very easy to use , vibrantly coloured item of the brio railway . I brought this as a present for my friends child and within about 5 minutes of unpacking it , it was fully operational with personalised announcements .
I cant remember the exact way to record your own voices , but I found that a quick scan over the instructions and we were away. the only thing I found was that the volume could be a bit louder however , the voices recorded where quite and I think that was an issue .
the station fitted to the other track like the rest of the sets and is just a basic track section on each end of the platform , making it very easy to swap and move around as and when needed.
The pre recorded sounds on the building are all brilliant and give any child ( including my mates) hours of fun , it keeps them occupied.
After having him play with it for nearly two weeks now , the battery seem to be holding up very well with no signs of dying and the building hasn't chipped at all and seems to be very well built with strong paint as well .
The revolving station sign seems to be a little sticky at times however I'm unsure if his spilt anything on it since I've been gone. but after a few more uses , it seems okay . I can only assume that it has either been cleaned up a bit though use , or the tight spot stopping it from spinning easierly has been worn away.
Never a dull moment at this station. Record your own passenger announcements, or use the train sounds, lights, ticket window, reversible station sign or opening and closing doors. It's simply buzzing.Warning - not suitable for children under 3 years. Age range: From 3 years.
