"Thomas the Train" wooden track attachment
By Mommy of a Train Lover

About Me Parent
Comments about Fisher-Price 1001124 Wooden Railway Charging Station:
I bought this for my son for his 4th birthday as one of his gifts and he loves this addition to his wooden Thomas the Train set! The "charger" attaches to the magnetic "link" on the train and will work on any of the cars, not just Stafford. The charging station comes with "Stafford" which is nice, as well as one additional piece of track. Something that my son does not care about, but I, as the constructor of the train track found slightly annoying, was that the "charging station" inserts only on one side of the piece of track it comes with. I wish the charging station could be inserted onto either side of that piece of track, or that the piece of track were reversible and had "tracks" on either side. This is the reason I didn't give this product 5 stars. You can probably get away with having the charging station sit near any piece of track, but it won't sit flush against any piece other than the one it comes with. Also be prepared with a small screw driver to get the charging station out of the box/ packaging.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is a great item for Thomas fanatics! Besides being the place where Stafford gets charged up, I believe it opens up little minds to the idea of renewable energy!

About Me Education Oriented, Educator, Parent
My 2 yr old picked this out himself to buy with his birthday money. He has a Thomas Train table, and we easily added it to his track. He loves playing with it! He attaches the magnet to the trains, presses the button, and watches the lights as the train "charges." He loves the sounds and lights it makes. I like that it's very easy for him to use. I showed him once how to attach the magnet, and now he does it all by himself. This is a toy he plays with on a daily basis, so we definitely got our money's worth (plus, it also comes with the train Stafford).
Power and repower - It's a necessity!

The charging station should be first on the list of accessories. Trains need to run and will be charged and recharged. Hours of recharging when a lot of engines are lined up waiting!

My son loves the charging station and uses it with the take and play trains as well as the wooden trains. Its a good addition for the woodden playsets. My son loves the sounds and lights and its very well made and sturdy.

Fisher Price changed attachment design
from NY, NY
About Me First Time Parent, Stay At Home Parent
Poorly designed -- the older Thomas Wooden Railway destinations would attach to track pieces via flat magnets on the track and the destination. Fisher Price's version no longer has magnets, but little wooden nubs instead. The nubs are useless and the destination is easily (and constantly) knocked out of place when kids are playing with it, causing extreme frustration and frequent parental intervention to re-set up the Charging Station, and any other track knocked out of the way. Magnetized pieces work a thousand times better. Had I been able to see that the magnets were missing and replaced with useless wooden nubs, I would never have purchased or opened this item. Thumbs down. If there were magnets, this piece would get 4 stars because the charging station is fun an noise, though the charging "cord" is a hassle and doesn't wind up properly nor reach long enough.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
