      My kids love this train but they got frustrated because even my 7 year old had trouble getting the melody keys on the track without making others come off but overall it is really nice

      Comments about Melody Express™ Musical Train:

      This is an update to an earlier review. We had contacted Learning Resources as the train had stopped working approximately one year after purchase. We had not heard back from them for several weeks and had resigned ourselves to shelving the toy. Yesterday, 3/29/2012, we discovered a packaged in the mail from Learning Resources - they had shipped us a new train engine unit! I commend Learning Resources for their exceptional customer service and their graciousness in sending us a new unit. At the time we called Learning Resources Customer Service line, we fully understood that the toy was over a year old and well outside the warranty period so we didn't expect a replacement.

      Thank you to Learning Resources! My son was so happy!

          Comments about Melody Express™ Musical Train:

          My boys got this train from Santa this year. They love music. It's a great toy with good concept design and very engaging, BUT, it's a little frustrating in that you only get six of most of the notes...rather limiting in the songs you can play, or create yourself. I wish we could buy extra packs...that would be perfect.

          Comments about Melody Express™ Musical Train:

          My mother-in-law bought this train for my 2 and 3 1/2 year old boys who LOVE trains. They need help putting the track together but my 3 year old can put the music tiles in random order with minor help. I think this is a great train. It is durable, sturdy, easy to put together, and the tracks stay together. I also love the idea of combining trains and music, since most toddlers and preschoolers love both of these things. However, I wish that the track was a bit bigger because they get bored pretty quickly. Also, I wish there were more music tiles so that you could make longer songs. The tiles enable you to make the first stanza of a song, but just when the kids get into singing along the song has to stop because there are not enough tiles of each color. They should really either include more tiles in the set (like double) or have an option to buy more separately. Other than that this train is genius!
