Do you have a model train lover in your family? I do! This Lionel Polar Express G gauge train set is a fantastic deal at Amazon today and it is going to sell out quickly. Now only $74.99, it has a regular price of $149.95.
You don't need to be a collector to enjoy this train set. Kids love the Polar Express, which I think is a classic, making this train set a classic Christmas set. You could place it around the tree to add something whimsical and fun that you'll be thankful for when you pull it out every Christmas.
My husband loves model trains and he would love this special gift. He actually wanted to set up tracks all around his office, but he just hasn't gotten to that project yet. He could replace his regular trains with this Polar Express set.
Not just the train, it comes with three Polar Express figures and also has two opening doors. There is an authentic bell and whistle and a working headlight, plus a disappearing "hobo" feature, based on a scene in the movie.
The train can be run on rechargeable 9.6V batteries or on six C batteries (which are included).
If you do Elf on the Shelf, imagine the kid's surprise when their Elf has brought them this train, which they find running in the morning, with an invitation to watch the movie that night. Or if they watched it for the first time the night before, the train would be such a fun addition in the morning.
There are varying reviews, but this one is really one that makes you go "ahhh".
I have wanted a train around the tree since I was little, I am 60 now. We love the movie and we love this train, is it the best-est ever NO. This train is what I paid for, I have realistic expectations. I glued the conductor into one of the doorways, put the boy on the roof with the hobo and away it went! We used one set of c batteries, we didn't run it a lot, just as a novelty. One night 3 of us guys were laying on the floor getting the four cars set right on the track so it wouldn't click, fun! This Polar Express Train was the best addition to Christmas since our grandson whom at almost 3 ran the remote just fine. Buy it, it is worth it, the bell, whistle and conductor announcement make it a magical Christmas.
Because the train is over $25, it will ship for free from Amazon. I wouldn't wait on this purchase, as I think it will sell out rather quickly.
