        Comments about FAO Schwarz Railroad Starter Set:

        Set this train up around the Christmas tree for our 3 year-old son, who had asked Santa for "a big train". He was delighted and was playing with it all morning and still plays with it daily. The controls are easy to use, the train has multiple speeds, and the 4 sound effects are a real hit! It has very similar specs to sets that cost over three times as much (the difference being plastic versus conducting brass track). It seems to be pretty durable, too, as our son has dropped it a couple of times with no broken pieces and no loss of function. I would recommend this as a great train around the tree or a great first time model train for young children.

            Comments about FAO Schwarz Railroad Starter Set:

            I purchase the FAO Schwarz Railroad Starter Set for my kids for Christmas.
            I set it up the night before under the tree in anticipation of running it for the kids in the morning.
            When Christmas arrived, I tried to to start the train but it would not go.
            After a half an hour of trying everything possibly to correct problem, I was left with three crying kids.
            A little more quality control would be nice on the products you sell.

              Comments about FAO Schwarz Railroad Starter Set:

              I just wanted a train set that didn't cost a container full of cash and wasn't a piece a junk. This set is a great buy and is very good quality. It was easy to put together for my 8 year old not-so-girly-girl. She's been busy with it for 2+ hours now. It's larger scale than most train sets and will be nice to set up under the tree for years to come.

                We unpacked this set and had it up and running in 10 minutes. Our 4 year old son was able to work the controls and spent hours playing with this beautiful little train set, he used the cattle car for all sorts of other toys that he wanted to have a ride on the train.

                A little more track would be a great addition to this set
