Toot Toot Battery Operated Ride On Train and Track
Advantages: Great fun, pretty unique, great value at £75
Disadvantages: Long charge time - need to charge it before giving it to child really
Got this from Toys Are Us for £75 in pink for my 1 yr old daughter this Christmas. I made sure I charged it up the night before as it takes 10-12 hours - only to be expected with a battery big enough to move this train. Like the other review, would have been good if it said this on the box, but as RC models was a previous past time of mine, I knew it would need a decent charge. Instructions were included in our set, though pretty basic, enough to work out what to do. Laughably it says a crash helmet is required! This train goes so slow, she's more likely to injure herself with the walker! Guess the lawers got that put in...
The train is fantastic fun, and my daughter is so content when riding it. Perfect speed for a 1yr old, just below a walking pace. An older child might get bored, as there is no speed control. Noises are a bit loud for indoors, and there's no way of turning them down or off, the buttons are always live, and strangely all do the same thing.
Having said all that, I think it is great value for £75. The track is flexible so you can arrange it to fit most rooms, and the battery once charged seems to last for days of playing - it says on the instructions 60-90 mins, but I'm sure it had much more than that before we decided to charge as we had friends round the next day. It hadn't even slowed. The wheel arrangement is easy to get on the track as the wheels are so chunky, and the wagon is great to put favourite soft toys in so they can ride too. Track is pretty durable too, and with everything made of plastic, should be good for the garden also. Seems pretty durable, time will tell.
If you can get this at this price or similar, go for it. It seems pretty unique, and great value when you think some ride on cars go for over £300.
Summary: No regrets, fantastic fun, wish I could find more track.
