What We ThinkFun factor: Durability: Ease of assembly: Educational factor: Novelty factor: The Good: Lifelike details and optional smoke that comes from the locomotive when it's operating. The directions are sometimes vague: for example, the train needs to charge before it runs, but we didn't understand that from the instructions and spent some frustrating minutes wondering why the train wouldn't move. The Challenging: Learning the way to drive the train both backward and forward takes some practice. In a Nutshell: A beautifully designed and expertly crafted train set that can delight kids and adults both. The stylish engine bus has a nostalgic, old-fashioned design and is impressively detailed. The set comes with figures modeled after characters from the 2004 film.

Attention to Detail Creates a Lifelike Experience The Polar Express has some specifically nice features, like the smoke fluid that you can add to it to ensure that it emits puffs of smoke as it chugs along. The realistic-sounding steam whistle is also a great touch. The transformer that powers the train is heavy and solid, with a big throttle that's easy for little hands to operate.
Testers found the train easy to assemble, and once charged, it went smoothly around the oval track. In general, we enjoyed the old-fashioned high quality in the train set's well-crafted parts, as nicely the several design particulars (including interior lighting, retro styling, plus a operating headlight) that produced the Polar Express come alive. At 60 inches long and 40 inches wide, the track is not specifically big, but you can extend it by purchasing more track pieces from Lionel (sold separately ).
