Another Quality Wooden Railway SetSep 30, 2009
By N. Hurst
My son received this for his 3rd birthday recently and he really likes it. The new vehicle recognition gizmo works pretty well, and it integrates nicely with the other Wooden Railway set we have. The noises aren't annoying, or even very loud, for that matter.
What I like most about this set is the large amount of smaller curved pieces you get. They allow you to make a much smaller circle, which is nice when you start to run out of floor space.
Other than that, it's the same type of thing you'd expect from the Wooden Railway series. High quality, easy to use, and easy to clean up!

Absolutely everything we imagined it would be and then some!Jul 25, 2010
By Picky mother
We bought this brand new for our 4 year old son. He received the Great Discovery video for his 3 year old birthday and had been asking for the "Great Discovery Thomas" for about a year. His first wooden train set was also Thomas, but bought used on Craigslist when he was 2 1/2 so it was about time for a new one. We could not be happier. First, it was over 50% off retail and although it qualified for Super Saver shipping, we bought it from a company that charged standard shipping because it was in the same city which we live and I was hoping we would get it in 1-2 days (which we did) and it was also less expensive than the company offering Super Saver shipping. Second, the 2 trains, Stanley AND Thomas, are included and work flawlessly. The comment that it only works some of the time may be because you have to make sure the doors are open so that Sir Topham Hatt is showing before he will talk to the trains. We were also pleasantly surprised that my son's old trains also set the sensors off with generic phrases (not train-name specific like the ones included in the set). My son loves his new "Great Discovery Thomas" and so do we! I would recommend it to anyone.

DisappointedJun 16, 2009
By Happy Mom
We are huge fans of wooden Thomas and were very excited about the talking railway series. Unfortunately, this product only recognizes the special engines maybe 1/4 of the time. It is otherwise lots of fun. My son loves that it is from his movie and likes to recreate the movie with it.

3 years old Jacob loves this for his birthday and is always fascinated to hear the announcement whenever a train passes the designation. I hope there can be more actions added to the feature. Overall, he loves it.
Great interactive toy!Dec 31, 2010
I bought this as a birthday present for our youngest son. Turns out it is big hit with our oldest son too. It is big enough they both can play nicely together and they love that the toy "talks" to them. We bought some additional trains with the RFID feature and it works really great. Set up was not too difficult and it really is one of the nicer sets we own.
