When my son was 6, I spent hundreds of dollars on HO gauge, high dollar electric trains. Problem was, they were electric, they were complicated, they were expensive and he was only 6. As a result, he only go to play with them when I was there to supervise.

So when my grandson came along, I started planning to get him a model train set. He is 3 now (going-on-10) and I wanted to get him a train set. I found the Power Trains and thought, since he's only 3 and this is an inexpensive set, I'll get it and if it turns out to be junk or if it gets torn-up, I can trash it and get something better as he gets older.

Well, I discovered that his new Power Trains Remote Controlled, Power Trains Log Loader set (Under $50) is not just inexpensive, it is also easy for him to operate and it is safe (battery power)for him to handle. The tracks are a little tricky but we have mastered that task, even on carpet.

Now I'll be straight with you, the log building and the truck are cheap and cheesy, but the locomotive and rolling stock are quite good for the money. As I said, the track assembly has a learning curve but once you learn it, they are pretty simple to work with.

Jackson loves the remote control because he can control the train's motion from anywhere around the track. (Yes, we have added track to about a 40 foot layout!)

Also, we quickly learned that a $20 investment in rechargeable batteries and a wall charger are a great idea because he often runs the train 4-6 hours at a time. (He thinks the train has to keep going even during lunch so the load will be sure to get there on time!)

To sum it up, this is a terrific buy as a starter set for any child from 3 to 12 years old. It is safe, fun, inexpensive and the quality is there where it needs to be there, i.e.: the rolling stock and locomotive.
When Jackson is 10-12, I'll get him started in HO electric sets with all the detail, flexibility and realism that a high quality set offers.

For now, however, the Power Trains sets will give him (and me!) endless hours of fun and with the prices of these sets and parts, it will help me smile when something breaks and we can run down and pickup some new stuff without stopping at the bank on the way.

Cheap train set. Not worth the price

There is nothing great about this train set. Cheaply built. Track is very flimsy. Train won"t stay on track. Constantly having to put the train and cars back on. Do not recommend.

    Comments about Jakks Pacific 1001196 Power Train Special Value Pack:

    Like one other reviewer, I spent MANY hundreds of dollars on N scale electric trains for my grandson only to discover that they were way to fragile for a youngster. This set is perfect for a first grader in a lot of ways, certainly when in comes to sturdy construction. The locomotive on this set has fallen from the kitchen table (where he likes to set it up) at least 25 times and is no worse for it. Yes, the tracks can be be "fiddly" to hook up, and yes the rail cars take a bit of practice to attach efficiently, but for the money, my grandson (and me too) have had a LOT more fun with these than the expensive stuff. Make sure your tracks sections are connected properly or it will derail the train. It's not Kato, but look how much money you'd spend to set up a layout like this and you'll be stunned. Buy and enjoy.

            I bought this for my son's 4th birthday we had it up in about 20 minutes and he played with it for 4 hours that night before he went to bed. The only down fall is that the train is hard to put together for him but after a week he had it down.

              Good set to begin with as it offers a wide enough selection of parts to be engaging, but not so many as to be overwhelming. Easy to assemble and use.

              I have to say this is really well built! IT is a lot easier to collect than lionel trains because these are a lot cheaper! (In Price) If you want trains that are not expensive but not to small, this is the way to go! I can't say enogh about it! It is that good. When it comes to putting the set together it is time comsuming but toataly worth it! IT is filled with fun! I don't know why some people rate this as a 1 star product! If they had 100 stars that is what it would be! I Bought this with the racing freight and the starter set and it worked well because there is about 5-7 different ways for the train to go. When you get the box you might be thinking "I only got 3 train cars and an engine!" Well that is not the case there is three more in the box. The reason I say that is because on the front in the see through area has 3 train cars and an engine.

              Great Product.

              RECOMEND TO ANYONE NOT JUST FRIENDS!
