Adventures with your children
This is a fantastic set from Lionel. My son (age 5) opened the box and was beyond excited to get it set up. The engine is well made and is solid, and comes with three additional faces which the kids have fun using. The included remote is easy to use and controls sound features on the engines, however the volume is a little low and it's hard to hear once the train starts going. The engine lacks a smoke feature, but otherwise is great. The cars are well made and this set is of very high quality for the price point. Included FasTrack is easy to set up and connect (my son did it) and allows you to place this train set anywhere you want to. This is sized PERFECTLY if you're going to put it under your Tree this holiday season. This is a great starter set to get your child engaged in the worlds greatest hobby.
The product has been provided by Lionel free of charge so I could experience it; however, the thoughts and opinions are all my own.
Great Set, Phenomenal detail and sounds
The product has been provided by Lionel free of charge so I could experience it; however, the thoughts and opinions are all my own.The passenger cars are super detailed.Thomas is a well-detailed model.He has great color and shape.His 3 extra faces are rubber coverings placed over his face.A genius idea on Lionel’s part.The set has 2 controllers.The wireless remote has 3 buttons for sound and a throttle to move Thomas.The app works on a phone and is simple.You connect via Bluetooth,pull the throttle,and watch and listen Thomas begin his Journey.Thomas' whistle and bell can be controlled.1 button has Thomas say lines from the show.The voice is in his speaker underneath him.This is a small problem. When Thomas goes faster than he should, the sound of metal wheels slightly overpowers his voice. But going a fast/steadily pace can hear both excellently. The has life layout.This set's fun and it's a great new way to play with Thomas and teach kids about model trains.
Great train set
by Ronald E. Stake
As an avid model train enthusiast, I’m very happy with this easy to use train set. It would definitely suit any kid 8 and above and introduce them into the model train hobby. Extremely easy to set up and use. Great quality and a great price.
I am a Lionel reviewer and I received this set free.
Great train set for the holidays!
The product has been provided by Lionel free of charge so I could experience it; however, the thoughts and opinions are all my own. I received my Thomas Lion Chief Train Set today and was very impressed with the quality of the set. The track is easy to put together and I had my Thomas train running within minutes! The remote made it very easy to run, especially for kids. I even connected Thomas up using the Lionel Lion Chief App so I could run Thomas right from my phone! This made the fun even easier! Thomas's happy whistle and variety of talking phrases made the Thomas fun even better! The only thing I would change is having the chugging/chuffing sounds louder. When the train is running on the tracks, it is hard to hear the chugging and chuffing sounds, even with the volume turned all the way up in the app. The whistle, bell, and talking phrases are nice and loud and clear though! All in all, I think this would make a great gift for any train loving family!
