Editorial Review

While Thomas the Tank Engine and his various friends have been featured quite nicely in a variety of toys, games, stories, videos, books, and pajamas, it's as a train set that Thomas really makes the most sense. And this sprawling ensemble is certain to delight any Thomas fan. Measuring 62 by 90 inches when laid out in full, it features Thomas and several of his pals including Percy, Harold, Annie and Clarabel, Terrence, Trevor, and Cranky, all of whom are motorized. Tunnels, bridges, and houses add to the authenticity of the set as do three engine sheds positioned around a large turntable with directional switch. 26 pieces of road let you arrange the town according to the prescribed plan or design your own unique layout. --Charlie Williams ...

Watch out for falling rock! Railroad construction ahead!Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends Big Loader will bring out the train conductor in any child. When the big loader is running, use the control buttons on the track to make the train change direction. Itsy-bitsy engineers control whatever it does next. The track includes hoppers, loading docks, and transfer ramps. The motorized chassis fits under Thomas, Percy, and Terrance, the toys' included companions. After parents take a few minutes to read the simple instructions, make sure a 2-by-2-foot space is available for construction. Requires one AA battery for operation. --Andrea Linsky ... Read more

Not very happy
We got this train for our daughters 4th Birthday and when we took it out of the box the main train that pulls the rest was broken. We tried to figure out how it goes together and never did so she has not got a chance to play with it! The box was in great condition so I really do not know how it was in so many pieces when we got it! I am not happy about that, but as far as fun...can't say due to it never working!! I hope others that purchase this toy have better luck that we have had.

GREAT GIFT!!!!
My son received this toy for his 3rd birthday- and it is, by far, his favorite gift. He loves watching the trains do their jobs loading and unloading the "rocks." And, after it goes around the correct way a few times, he likes to switch things up and see what happens if he puts the trains in the wrong places. The parents who are complaining that this is not an interactive toy need to realize that it is interactive if you let your kids try different things with it. It doesn't always have to work in the right order for the toy to be fun. As a matter of fact, by putting things in the wrong order to see what happens, my son gets a great lesson in cause and effect.

Took a while to assemble but IT WORKS!
My son is 2 and a half. I'm a 34-year-old Network Engineer. I had not heard of the original "Big Loader" toy or how it worked, but my son saw the box in the store with Thomas, Percy, and Terence the Bulldozer - and that was it. He was sold. He didn't care what the toy actually did, as long as it had these three characters. So I figured "What the heck" and purchased it.

First off, I will also agree with many of the opinions - the included instruction page (note: singular) needs some more detail. I also had to resort to the box illustrations for help.

However, I *DID* manage with the instructions. I didn't have any problems with the battery compartment, the tracks fit nicely, and the whole track stayed assembled.

The next challenge was to figure out the motorized routine. After about 10 tries, I finally was able to coordinate the motor's direction, orientation, and the train-cover layout to get it all working.

And me and my son just stared at that toy for ten minutes straight. Whenever the train changed from Thomas to Percy, he would giggle. Same for when the bulldozer activates. He does appreciate the "fragility" of the system by telling everyone to "stand-back" while it runs. I also think a lot of it had to do with me having fun with the toy as well. Since I didn't get (too) frustrated with putting it together, he wasn't afraid or put-off by it either.

Tomy also has an even larger kit that adds-on to this one. I might have to save that for another day....

BOTTOM LINE: Not a typical train-set. Takes some effort to construct *AND* operate. Features 3 popular Thomas characters.

He played with it once & all the pieces are everywhere
My mom bought this for my son. It never really ran right, wouldn't stay on the track, & the pellets go everywhere. He would get frustrated & so did I. We put it away the first day & no one ever asked for it again, thank goodness.

Happy with thomas
Our 3 year old son got this track a year ago and hardly played with it because we only let him watch and touch the levers. However, once we stopped worrying about what happened to the toy and let him be hands on, he has played with it nonstop for two weeks. He doesn't even need the train to be turned on, and will push it around manually. It is incredibly durable to deal with his handling, and after the first couple times to figure it out, very easy to put together-he even knows how it works. Great toy! ... Read more

A night time must at our house
I bought this before my daughter was born. I didn't use it often when she was little as we also have a mobile and a mommy bear that she responded better to at that time. However, when we sleep trained her I started using it more. It is perfect, now she falls asleep to her night show and music every night. She will sit up until I can wind the music box. But once the music is on, she will lay right down and it sends straight to dream land. I was impressed that in 17 months we have only replaced the batteries once.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great find for my baby
I was looking for on one these in the local stores with no luck. My older daughter had an earlier version of this Tomy toy when she was a baby and I remember her loving it. When I finally found this one, I bought it for my newborn. We've only had it a few days, but so far so good. She is a very fussy baby when laying down, she likes to be held all the time. This toy is able to keep her attention and soothe her when she is in her bassinet, she even makes cute cooing noises at it.

5-0 out of 5 stars PERFECT ITEM FOR JULIA!
This Lullaby Dream Show is awesome! Everytime I turned it on, my 6 month old baby, Julia cannot get her eyes off this item until the first show is over. The 2nd show doesn't seem to work for her anymore because by then she will start to grab the toy from her crib. I like the reflection in the ceiling for myself :) Piece of advice, remove the toy before your baby falls asleep because something might happen and this thing might accidentally fall on her and you don't want that to happen. In general, highly recommend this item!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great .... while it lasts
Loved the toy, but once the bulb blows give it up and buy another. Replacement bulbs are virtually impossible to get, and comparable flashlight bulbs will only work for 1-2 wind up's.

3-0 out of 5 stars Unfortunate Problem With This Toy
If you intend to buy one of these little gems you
you had better buy 2 of them! The light burns out within
the year (with regular use)and it is a true pain to change it.
The cost of a second one would be well worth the aggravation
you are going to save. It is a real shame something so cool
can't last. It obviously does not burn many candle watts so I can find no reason for this. There are NO instructions anywhere for changing the bulb either. Wonderful idea, not much thought into its problem though. ... Read more

very short battery life-span!
My daughter loved this toy. The quack-quack-quack was so cute; but the batteries died soon after we got it and can't be replaced. It also tips over pretty easy. It would be better if it had replaceable batteries and the wheel base was a little wider. I think my daughter would play with it more often if it still had sound effects.

turn grumpy mood into giggles
Though this toy is not intended for my daughter's age group, she loves it! She is only nine months old so I have to watch her carefully with it as the string is a hazard for such a little one. We got this toy as a hand-me-down. The funny quacking makes her giggle every time we pull the string. I hope that she enjoys it as much when she's old enough to walk with it.

Batteries CANNOT be replaced!
As an experienced mom of four I actually find this toy adorable and I didn't notice a problem of them tipping over. Most pull toys they make these days tip easier than the ones my oldest played with.
HOWEVER-beware- YOU CAN'T CHANGE THE BATTERIES. And they just aren't as cute without the quack quack, quack quack, quack quack, quaaack. :O)
Also-how many times was that string pulled while the toy sat on a toy store shelf before *you* bought it???
Cute toy but limited life span.

Too wobbly
My mother-in-law bought this as a toy to keep at her house (thank goodness...the quacking is cute but all day every day would be too much!) The main problem I have with the toy, however is that it is not very steady on its wheels. My fairly coordinated 16 month old can't keep the ducks upright and usually ends up dragging them around instead of pulling them.

Quacks Me Up!
My mother-in-law who bought this for my 9 month old twins said "It'll drive you nuts the way it quacks". I think that's why she bought it was to drive me nuts. BUT - I love it, and the quacking isn't at all annoying! The babies love making the ducks quack, and when I imitate the quacking song, the girls faces just light up. Excellent toy, excellent price! ... Read more

So many pieces, so little changes
My son begged for this toy for months and I finally broke down and bought it, I wish I'd stood firm! It has so many little pieces that are impossible to keep track of. The track only goes together one way and in my opinion it isn't that sturdy. Once you get it set up and watch it go, the entertainment wears out quickly. If you are like me and extremely anti-multiple piece toys, avoid this one! (...) My son got a total of about two hours total in entertainment and I got a migraine trying to keep track of all the little logs and miscellaneous pieces!

A Very Cute Train
I bought this a month ago for my granddaughter to play with at Nana's house. Once I took the time to put it together right, I was so pleased with how it operates. It is so very cute picking up logs and dumping. Nice toy !!!

Mother of a 5 1/2 year old Thomas Fanatic
My son received this train set as a Christmas present and the entire family was captivated by it. It is made very well and we have had no problems with it. It would be nice if you could rearrange the track and have it do other things, but its still ok. With my son being older he can put it together and take it apart all by himself (a big plus). I think this is just great. My son has been heavily into Thomas since he was about 3 and he hasnt let up since and I can honestly say that we have not had any problems with any of his trains (wooden, metal, battery powered, etc.).

The Fun Wears OFF!
My 4yr old loved it the first few days but the fun wore off and now it is sitting in the closet. We got it at the end of January and left it set up for the first couple of weeks. Then put it away and I think we had it out a total of two times since. There isn't much of anything you can do with the set to change things around, the layout has to basically stay the same for the loading and unloading operation to work. It is fairly easy to put together but that also makes it easy for the kiddos to take apart. I would be hesitant to buy it again.

3 year old loves it
We bought this for our 3 1/2 year old son, and he absolutely loves it!! He will sit and watch it for quite a while, and he also likes pushing the train himself. It does take up a bit of space, but we have found that after you put it together a few times, you get the hang of it, so we just take it apart after he is through playing with it. ... Read more

cute idea but not easy to use
first of all to get all the pieces to the pool requires a small bag, then the toy does not stay connected in the pool as soon as the smallest wave comes near it. the toy does make sounds but my daughter still at two does not seem to be to impressed.

3-0 out of 5 stars Mediocre at best
My kids (3.5 and 2) received this as a gift, and at first I was excited--it's cute and colorful. In theory, a great toy. However, my kids don't like it. Water gets inside the dolphins and when this happens, they won't make noises (easily remedied by shaking the water out of them, but my kids don't have the patience for this). They also get very frustrated that the rings that the dolphins sit in do NOT stay linked together. Slight movements that disturb the water will cause the chain to come apart. I'm sure that this would be a favorite bath toy with a few improvements made by the company.

3-0 out of 5 stars It's gotten a bad rap from some!
We got this toy for our son when he was 11 months old. He has a great time with it and he was able to make the dolphins "sing" after about a week of playing with it. You don't have to hit them hard to make sound. They whistle for him with a tap. We do have to shake the water out from time to time or they do stop working but that is an easy fix. Our son has now learned to blow in the bottom end and make them whistle. He plays with them in many different ways. They do take up quite a bit of space in the tub but we don't mind. He's having fun.

3-0 out of 5 stars Get Your Childs Immagination Going With Fun For All Ages
We bought this for our 1 year old granddaughter 3 years ago, even though it said for 18 months & up she loved splashing & this got her to go for the dolphins. The older she gets the more she learns with it. From the different sounds to putting the colored dolphin in the same colored ring to hooking them together, & now to making music & making up her own songs to go with her music. Just watch out for parents wanting to play with it too(not wanting to share with children). I am getting another one for our newest granddaughter that is 6 months. She too can start out learning how to tap the dolphins for sound. This tub toy is so colorful & has not lost any of it's color over the years. Fun & educational at the same time, who says learning has to be boring? Not Tomy.

3-0 out of 5 stars waste of money
With minimal effort, this toy could be useful and fun, but as is, it is neither. The rings in which the dolphins sit do not hook together easily, nor do they stay together once hooked. The dolphins definitely don't play music by "tapping" on the dolphins. Neither my 4 YO or 2 YO like the toy - a terrfic waste of money. This was the last TOMY toy in this house. ... Read more

Pull Along Thomas is a great toy.
Pull Along Thomas is an adorable toy. By pullling the string, Thomas, Annie and Clarabelle, chug along after your child. You can even turn the sound off if you need a little more quiet. Your child can walk slowly, or race around the house and Thomas, Annie and Clarabelle will follow bouncing along after him/her. The realistic train motion and sound effects helps your child to use his/her imagination while playing with the toy. This is a very durable toy, and will provide lots of fun for any child.

3-0 out of 5 stars It's Cute, But LOUD
This is a nice little train, although, it does tend to fall over a lot. When you pull the string it makes a chugging train sound then a loud horn noise. It's really really loud and scared my son the first few times. But now he seems to like the noise and occasionally dances to it, stangely enough. But for me, it's annoying. Thankfully there's an on/off switch. I would suggest this toy to die hard Thomas fans only.

3-0 out of 5 stars The perfect gift for my 2 yr. old nephew
I recently purchased this item for my newphew's second birthday. He pulled it around the room for a full two days after receiving it! My sister says it keeps him busy and out of her hair.
When there is tension on the pull-string (leash), it plays a two-second clip of train noise over and over. It's not very loud, though, since the speaker is on the underside of the train and is aimed straight at the carpet.
The cars wiggle front-to-back, not side-to-side, and the cars are wide, so it doesn't tip over easily. Even when it does tip over, the cars are big and square, so the little guy can fix them on his own.
Even his five-year-old brother loves this one. It's a hit!

3-0 out of 5 stars A great TOY
I have a cusion and he loved this toy. I cant tell ya'll how much that he loves it because everymorning he wants it and nothing else it is a great toy to have.

3-0 out of 5 stars Doesn't stay upright
My 1 year old got this toy for his birthday in May and he would probably play with it if the toy wasn't so frustrating! The train will not stay upright for more than a few steps - carpet or floor it doesn't matter - the train will fall over on its side. Also, for the parents the sound can get VERY annoying in a short period of time. Even if your child loves Thomas, save your money and buy something else. ... Read more

A quiet meal!!
This is the best ten bucks I ever spent. My two year old doesn't yet know how to sit still or let the grown-ups talk durring dinner out. This toy lets us have a nice relaxing meal. We save it for dinners out or for when company comes. This way he can be at the table with all of us and neither me nor my DH have to take him away and miss the conversation. I will definitely buy a second one for my youngest when he is old enought.

Great entertainment for planes!
I bought this toy for my 20 month old when we had to take a plane across country by ourselves. He loved it - it kept him occupied for a good half hour...which at 20 months is quite a lot to ask! I recommend it to anyone who needs to amuse a little one in a seat for an extended period of time. And you don't need to wait until he is three.

GREAT TOY FOR RESTUARANTS
I just got this for my 3 year old Thomas fanatic son. We were going to a fancy restuarant for my dads birthday and I wanted him to behave. Well, this tiny little toy kept him busy the entire time. He absolutely loved it. My only complaint is that the little peices (the horses) kept falling off the table. Other than that, I cant wait for them to come out with more of these toys. Excellent idea. It fit in my purse perfectly, all the peices fit inside very well with no force necessary- he did all the work himself. For the price, excellent value. ... Read more

What child who doesn't love Thomas the Tank's friendly face? The Thomas Medium set is a great introduction--or addition--to Thomas the Tank's world. The set comes complete with a train station, a traffic light, a little greenery and even a drawbridge. This "unique motorized road and rail system" is compatible with all other Thomas the Tank engine sets so you can easily add additional tracks or collect all of Thomas the Tank's friends. --Andrea Linsky ...

Thomas Train a Really Useful and FUN Engine
This Thomas the Train set is a huge hit with the 3 kids in our house: my girls, ages 2 and 4, and my husband! The interlocking track is easy enough for my youngest daughter to attach (and detach, which she prefers to do). The trains run on the track, on the floor, and even the carpet (slowly). The drawbridge works like a charm. My oldest loves the lever to stop one train (usually to cause a wreck with another oncoming train). The set comes with Thomas and cars Annie and Clarabel. Toys R Us had a sale, so we also bought a Percy, Gordon, and James. It's a good thing we did! Christmas Day my husband had trouble releasing the catch to install the batteries in Thomas and Percy. The instructions (graphics only, no words) were no help at all. Fortunately the batteries in Gordon and James are easily installed into their coal cars. We took the Thomas and Percy back to the store for help. We like this set so much we plan to buy additional track.

Hundreds of Hours of Fun
My 7-year old son still continues to play with this set and all the other related Thomas sets we have. We started collecting these pieces when he was 3 years old. He's been able to put this track together in so many different ways with little or no help from the start. He has a huge toybox full of this train set now. After 4 years, 2 of our 3 bridges broke after being stepped on. We have glued one back together and now it works just fine. None of the bridges have their sides anymore, but the trains work just fine and stay on the tracks very well. Only one piece of track has ever broken, which says a lot for it's durability. You have to be a little careful with the trains with the tenders, i.e. attached second car, like Gordon, Henry, etc. (Not included in this set). The batteries are placed in the tender and 2 wires connect the train front to the tender. If these wires get pulled roughly, the train will no longer work. As I said though, we've had this set for over 4 years and only lost a handful of trains. My son no longer watches Thomas videos or cares to spend a "Day out with Thomas", but he continues to play with this train set and ask for the newest pieces for Christmas and birthdays. We don't mind buying them either. It's a worthwhile gift to buy as it is durable and gets a lot of use.

The Thomas World Medium Set
This was my son's very first Thomas set from Tomica--or any other manufacturer. It was a gift from his aunt at Christmas. After watching him play with this set, I knew we had to purchase more like it. My wife thought we should invest in the wooden series of Thomas toys. But I said, "No way". The toys from Tomica look more like the engines from the Thomas television series, they are every bit as durable as the wooden ones (if not more so), and they are cheaper in the long run. The wooden trains look like only a 2-4 year old would ever play with them. But, Tomica toys are mature enough to please children beyond those ages and still hold up to the abuse of little engineers. We have since added numerous engines, track, and accessories to the set--most of which are available thru this Toys-R-Us website. Even my other son started out his railway with this set. It's a fine toy for any young Thomas fan.

Great Toy Train!!
My boys (ages 3 and 5) have been playing with the wooden Thomas set since the oldest was 18 months old. We received this set as a gift, and they have loved it just as much/if not more! One major plus is that the wooden series of Thomas trains rides smoothly on the blue Tomica track in this set!
This set has been EXTREMELy durable and works just as well with batteries as it does without. We were afraid the wheels wouldn't turn if batteries weren't being used, but this is not the case. The track is easily assembled by small hands and Thomas stays on the track. Thomas also stays on the track very well! We are currently looking for the Gordon that is pictured as an accessory on the box for this set. We are having difficulty finding him, but we won't give up! GREAT TOY!

great gift idea
This set was purchased for my 2 year old son. He and his 3 1/2 year old brother both love Thomas. Both boys play equally well with the set, although the older one is already reconfiguring the track layout (guess I need the expansion set). The train runs equally well with or without the battery turned on and I like that it only requires one battery (batteries get expensive when you need an average of four per toy). The train and track seem to be holding up well, the boys are having lots of fun with it, and it is very pre-schooler friendly. It's a cute toy, great price, and a great gift idea for any train-loving boy or girl! ... Read more

Returning this one
Even if it worked...The engine loses the signal from the remote sporadically, no matter how close you are to it. Plus, for a three year old, it is very difficult to tell which way the remote should be held; up is down, down is up. In order to back the engine up to connect to the cars, the connectors (magnets)must be perfectly aligned. I was never able to do it without manually pushing the connector into place; I can't imagine a three year old being able to do it. Any time you go in reverse, the train goes into a sequence of catching & releasing the cars; my nephew couldn't understand why every time he backed up, the cars fell off! Boo! ... Read more

A single motorized engine sets this busy Thomas the Tank Engineconstruction site in motion. Switch it on and watch as Thomas picks up aload of plastic rocks, rides up the elevator, and drops the rocks down aspiraling chute. Cranky the Crane then lifts the rocks and sends themdown another chute. From here Lorry the Loader scoops them into aholding bin, and the whole sequence begins over again. As long as thevehicles are positioned correctly on the track, the sequence runsremarkably smoothly, and it is truly fascinating to watch. This is not ahands-on toy, however. Once children switch on the engine, there islittle else for them to do. The sequence cannot be altered, forinstance, nor can the track be rearranged in any other configuration.Adult assembly is required, and the manufacturer includes a cautioningstatement about the risk of hair entanglement in the motorized engine.--Elisabeth Fredrickson ...

We bought this for our 3 year old. After spending close to an hour setting up, he couldn't even play with it! It does everything by itself. So, Cranky was taken off to play with.. very disappointed! But Dad enjoys watching the monotony of the train set (around, and around)

A frustrating disappointment
I assembled two Big Big loaders. Neither of them would complete one cycle of operation. The parts would not align properly, causing jams and not permiting the engine to reverse when it was supposed to at the top of the spiral tower. The crane would not pick up the
tray of little balls. The manufacturer did not return two e-mails.

This toy would only frustrate a small child, not to mention frustrating the adult who must assemble it.

Both Big Big loaders have been returned.

Big Big Loader is a Big Big Pain
This "toy" is not a toy. It's completely automated and not interactive for my 3 yr old and my 8 yr old boys. They were bored after 2 minutes. The loader kept getting jammed on the ramp....and yes, even after..re-assembling it correctly..again, after changing the little aggrevating tires, making sure it was on a flat surface, etc., etc. My 3 year old tried to play with it, only to have the crane fall over again and again. He had more fun taking the engine and letting it ride on the kitchen floor. Don't waste your money on this, folks, unless you like collecting Thomas stuff and having it set around to just look at.

Repetitious, loud and frustrating
My 2 1/2 yr old got this as a gift since he loves anything train (especially Thomas and friends) and it's been quite disappointing. If you are thinking of getting this for your own child, don't! If you are getting it as a gift, don't, unless you don't like the child's parents! This is a LOUD toy. And repetitious. The toy does everything by itself, after an adult has spent upward of 1/2 hour assembling it, and cannot be reconfigured into any other shape. My son still likes playing with it but that also includes taking the whole thing apart, letting the train run somewhere, anywhere and losing the balls. After the initial "cute" this toy just becomes very frustrating and definitely not worth the money.
Get another Thomas train with wooden tracks for a lot more fun and educational value.

Fun but Frustrating
My 3rd year old received this as a gift -- He loved the action, but was not content to just watch, wanted to move the chassis vehicle often. Unless you position the vehicle correctly, it will not operate.... Also, my little engineer loved to disassemble the entire track... A nightmare for mom to reassemble (make a copy of the assembly instructions and keep them somewhere handy.) Also! the chassis truck 'runs' whether on the track or not; hence the instructions warning about not getting it close to hair, etc.... I once found ours running in his closet, caught on carpet and making an oily mess.....The toy is fun, but frustrating. ... Read more

Micro Pets
Well my daughter and I have been going to Burger King to get these Micro Pets out of the Kids Pack, and she just loves them. She has started to collect them and just the other day she was lucky enough to match up the Micro Pets with green eyes. She was so excited because she got 2 out of 400 of these Micro Pets that when they are close together their eyes light up green instead of red. These Micro Pets are fun for the kids and cheap for the parents.

Micropet Crazy!
My seven year old daughter got a Micro Pet III Bundle as an early Christmas present from her Nanna. Unfortunately, it came in a cardboard shipping box, and had so instructions or an introduction whatsoever. My daughter didn't know they could actually do anything, she thought they were plastic figurines. My three year old son pressed down a button on one of the Mice's heads and it's eyes lit up and it walked forward, making sounds. My daughter turned all of them on, it was wild on my kitchen table! As soon as she ignored some of them, (the only one she paid attention to was the unicorn - go figure) the dogs would howl, the cats would sound a little angry, it was hilarious! She gave half of them to her brother and she kept half.

One of them looks like our cat, Ramona, grey with stripes. My daughter kept that one, the unicorn, the pink mouse, the koala, and the brown collie. My son got the rest. He's delighted! These keep the children delighted for hours. Enjoy! ... Read more

My Boys both Love this Toy!!
My oldest son got this toy for his first birthday a year and a half ago, and it's been a favorite at our house ever since. Now both he and my 11 month old love to play with this together. My older son will push the train and then the baby will go and chase after it. Its very sturdy and still looks brand new. I would recommend this toy very highly. Well worth the price.

Great and safe toy for baby!!!
My son received this toy as a gift when he was 7 months old and he loves it. He plops his face into it and makes raspberries - he smacks the wheels with his hands and watches them turn. He is now 8 1/2 months and can pull himself up to stand but is still wobbly and he can fall onto this toy without hurting himself. He isn't old enough to use it as a truck but he loves it just the same - I'm sure he will be playing with it for a few years!!

An Excellent Toy
My son received his Push & Go Thomas as a gift when he was about 15 months old. He, and the several children I watch, have played with it nearly everyday for the last year or so. All the kids love it, and from a parents standpoint it doesn't make much noise, doesn't need batteries, and is very durable. Also, it is easy for small children to operate. I would recommend this toy to anyone with a child between 1 and 4 years old.

This toy has been dearly loved, and still going...
My oldest son (now 6years old) got this for Christmas of 98. He played with it until he was about 5yrs old. Now he has handed it down to his little brother (15months old) and he loves it too. This toy is very durable. It's lasted all these years, and only has a few minor scratches. You push the little conductor down, and Thomas zooms along any flat surface. It's basic, toddler fun. It's not noisy, and doesn't require batteries, so that's a plus! ... Read more

Cute fun at a small cost
My girls each received a My Little Baby from the Easter Bunny. They love them! They are 6 and 3. The youngest just wants to "feed" hers but my 6 year old can get the doll to interact with her. While the babies are a little loud for their size, they are by no means distracting or even annoying. And the best part is that they can be shut off---unlike other electronic interactive toys. Pretty cute toys for minimal cost!

My Little Baby: Bailey is not worth it!!
My daughter recieved My Little Baby as a Christmas present. She looked it over, but quickly put it down. The little doll ALWAYS cries, and is often put in the closet to avoid the noise. The price of the little doll is not expensive, but considering my it was never played with and avoided, it was a waste of money. I discourage anyone from buying this item. ... Read more
