Our son received this when he was 8 months old-6 months adjusted for prematurity-and has loved this toy since day one. Now that he's on the move and his coordination is even better, he loves to push the train around and spin the top of the train. Every time the "riding on the train" song comes on, he begins dancing...he just loves it. As a parent, the songs can get a tad annoying, overall we enjoy it as well. We like that there is the music and the alphabet setting and that the train goes all the way through the alphabet one letter at a time as well as through the ABC song. This is one of our guy's clear favorites and well worth the -modest- price tag from our experience.
My son got this for his first birthday and he really likes songs and lights. It sings the ABC's when you move the wheel on top. It's easy for him to operate...he just presses on the green horn button and the toy activates. When he pushes the toy it'll either sing a song or go "chugga chugga...choo choo". I like that it has two modes, learning and singing mode. Learning will do the alphabet with examples and singing, well, it sings! Simple toy but one of his favorites.
