I like the function and quality of this product. The scale is small like all Trackmaster products. Make sure you have the right series as Thomas comes in several different scales and materials. This one is plastic that is sturdy. The only thing I did not like was the number of batteries required. It stands to reason that the controller would need one or two but each car also requires their own batteries as well for a total of 6. It is plainly stated on the Overstock sight but I just didn't notice that before hand. You need to have all those batteries available or your child will be disappointed. The controller plays a little song so be prepared to hear it ... a lot. There are different train sounds as well My 4 year old had no problem with the forward and backward function of the controller right away. That's the new generation of tech savvy youth! Overall I think this is a good quality fun product for those 3 to 5.
