This is a great set and a great price. Ran full speed forward and reverse with no problems. I would hilly recommend this set for anyone who wants quality.
I know the box says 8 years and up ... but I bought this for my 4 (almost 5 year old)... and he likes it. It's challenging. You have to go full speed to make the loop but need to slow down to make the turns. If you can't handle it, then the car flies off the track and across the room. But my husband assures me that's all part of the fun and that is why it is labeled for 8 and up. My son has had it a week now and he can go around the track about 4 times before he flies off. Took me about 20 mins to click all the track together. its about 3 ft long and 1.5 wide when its assembled. Sturdy pieces. I think its a great deal for the price. Everything I found in the toy stores like this was listed around $100. So I feel like its a good deal. I would recommend it.
Everyone loves watching this tiny and very detailed choo choo zip along the tiny tracks. I gotta say that it's quite a bit faster at full speed than I thought and doesn't fly off the tracks in turns even at full speed.
This set is okay for a child's first. But only at the sale price not full price. It's kinda flimsy but trains are expensive and it's great for a starter. Some reviews complained about it being to loud? I didn't find it to excessively loud. All in all nice starter train
