5 Stars By Bassocantor on 2015-06-18 √ ALL ABOARD! Fun Sound + Bubbles = F-U-N! I trust this video illustrates some of the features of this fun toy. We had a lot of fun trying out this train. Our cats also loved chasing it around. We tried it in our entryway (tile floor), and found that it worked well and ran along the floor smoothly.
To get it started, you put 3-AA batteries in the bottom of the train (not included). Then, you add some of the bubble liquid (provided.) Of course, you don't have to use the bubbles, but smaller kids will like them. One note: The directions indicate you should entirely fill-up the train reservoir with bubble juice. That seems a bit odd, but we did put quite a bit in (about half the bottle.) Sure enough, after a few minutes, the bubbles starting bubbling!
PRO: + Really Fun sound effects. Medium volume--not too loud so as to bother mom and dad too much. + Train moves just fine when it hits obstacles. It switches directions, so it never once got stuck. + Bubbles did entire start bubbling--more of "clumps" of bubbles, but bubbles nevertheless. + Good instructions for using the "filler" for putting the liquid in without spilling. I didn't spill a drop. That all worked very well.
CON: (nits) - Took a few minutes for the bubbles to begin. Not a big deal. - Have to unscrew the battery compartment to replace batteries. Having to get a screwdriver to remove a small screw strikes me as a little primitive. - The 3-AA batteries are not included.
√ All in all, a FUN product that I'm sure kids will love. Fun design & looks great.

4 Stars By Shaouni on 2015-06-06 Makes a ton of bubbles! I have two toddler boys who absolutely love trains. It seems that no matter how hard we try with other toys, their love of trains is definitely above anything else. When this Happy Motion Train "Choo Choo" arrived, my kids were ecstatic! They saw a train and had no idea what else was in store for them. It does require 3 AA batteries, which are not included, as most toys like this do not include batteries.
The train comes with bubbles, as well as a little filler funnel to easily pour the bubble solution into the train. The steam train engine is plastic and not the greatest quality plastic, but made well enough for my children to enjoy playing with it. I did put it away after to keep them from breaking it. If dropped it would likely break and I wanted to prevent that. After installing the batteries, the train lights up and makes a train sound when powered on.
After turning it on, a few seconds later you can see the bubbles start blowing out! My kids were having a blast chasing the train around and trying to catch the bubbles. It definitely kept them entertained and encouraged active play. The music does get a little irritating after a while, since my kids just tend to leave it on. I had to make sure to turn it off, which also saves us some batteries!
I also love the bump and go feature on the train. If it does happen to bump into something, it quickly turns and spins in a different direction to keep the kids entertained. This is a such a fun toy for kids to enjoy. I have yet to meet a child who doesn’t love bubbles! They’re just irresistible and fun to pop, why wouldn’t they chase this adorable train around.

5 Stars By Cassidy on 2017-03-01 MY SONS FAVORITE I bought this for my son for Christmas 2 months ago when he was 18 months old. I had no idea how big of a hit this would be but it was clear this was his favorite toy. He's 21 months now and one wheel has broken off from being thrown so it doesn't move around like it did but nevertheless, he still loves it. It's pretty beaten up now so I'll be needing to repurchase a new one soon, which I don't mind because it's priced greatly for such a cool, unique toy.
Yes, it's loud and repetitive and can be obnoxious to some. This didn't bother me much because I'm used to my son having loud toys and banging pots and pans.
Yes, it's a bit fragile for smaller children. If my son was a month or two older when I had bought this for him I'm sure it would've lasted much longer. If you have a smaller child that likes to toss things, it may not last long. I think 2T+ is a better age but again, nevertheless, this product definitely didn't disappoint my 18 month old or myself.
Yes, sometimes the bubbles messes up when first turning it on. We fixed this by just fooling around with the bubble blower, tilting it and such. Worked fine within a minute everytime.
The performance or the bubble blowing is GREAT. I was completely surprised at its performance and how much bubbles blew out.
BUY IT. It's been a hit and I'll be re gifting for other children to enjoy :)
5 Stars By TRS on 2016-08-29 HE LOVED IT SO MUCH OMYGOSH... WHERE DO I BEGIN?!!! MY LITTLE GRANDSON WENT TOTALLY NUTS OVER THIS BUBBLE=BLOWING, NOISE-MAKING, BUMPING AROUND TRAIN!!! HE LOVED IT SO MUCH, HE HUGGED IT AND CARRIED IT AROUND WHILE THE MULTITUDE OF BUBBLES ESCAPED THE "CHIMNEY" (FOR LACK OF THE CORRECT NAME!). IT WAS SO ADORABLE TO WATCH THIS 3 YEAR OLD GINGER WITH ALL SMILES ENJOYING THIS FUN LITTLE TRAIN!!!
AS A FOLLOW-UP, I ASSUMED THIS MIGHT LAST A WEEK OR SO, BUT ALREADY A MONTH AND HE'S STILL LOVING TO PLAY WITH IT, AND HIS 2 OLDER BROTHERS TOO (WHEN HE'S WILLING TO SHARE!).
4 Stars By Natty AKA Picky Polly on 2016-01-14 Motion Rapidity! Strong Motivation! My three-year-old daughter asked Santa for "a train that goes fast and plays lots of songs that I can dance to" and with this train, Santa was able to deliver big time. The train was much larger than I anticipated which is kind of a nice thing considering it doesn't have a track to keep it on (it's too big to step on in the dark but light enough that a good kick wouldn't hurt your foot too badly.)
The music sounds like the intro to a video game in the late eighties and it will get stuck in your head but it's not as annoying as the song from Daniel Tiger, so it's all good for us. We didn't anticipate using the bubble feature but we gave it a try and it's loads of fun. After the bubbles blow for a long time, the floor gets very soapy and the train struggles to move but the bubbles and the music keep on going, so she's happy. It's been almost a month and we're still on the original set of batteries.
I don't think this thing would survive a toss down a flight of stairs and it won't work on carpet or any bumpy outdoor surfaces but it's a fun indoor toy that has my kid dancing and chasing and laughing, so we're pleased. As you unpack the toy, be sure to read over all the warnings and the stickers on the train for an extra chuckle.
5 Stars By Marci on 2017-06-20 Love Choo Choo at Christmas My grandson loves it so that is all that matters. Pieces began galling off quickly but it lasted through Christmas and that is what was important. The lights are cool and he enjoyed watching it roll all over the floor. It gets stuck a lot those when it bumps into items such as furniture. That feature could use some improvement.
5 Stars By DENNIS VALY on 2017-05-30 FUN TOY THIS TOY WAS PURCHASED FOR MY GRANDSON'S THIRD BIRTHDAY. HE LOVES TRAINS. IT PREFORMED EXACTLY AS ADVERTISED. IT ALSO SHIPPED VERY FAST.
5 Stars By Sfish on 2017-05-06 Wow so many bubbles and so smart Wow so many bubbles and so smart about negotiating around objects. I'm very impressed! You might. It be able to tell through all the bubbles but the flooring is in the middle of being replaced and instead of going to the next layer, it turns right around and continues.
5 Stars By Terry Dean on 2017-06-12 Holy Crap! Fun like fireworks show! works great...lots of color-changing lights, music train sounds and random bump and go wandering. Hundreds of tiny bubbles....Big memorizing hit at grandson's party....I want one for me. Awesome toy nobody can ignore.
5 Stars By Tumelo Nteso on 2017-04-05 Bubble obsessed Seriously our favorite toy. Beware though this thing is on the load side after the initial wow factor. Loads of fun for any age I think. I literally buy this toy for every friends kid and it's always a hit
4 Stars By Moocow on 2017-05-10 Fun This was so much fun for my 2 yo son. The only problem is that the train feels very fragile and plastic is very thin. Luckily my son listens and haven't touched the train.. he chases after the train in excitement.
5 Stars By Gladys Kravitz on 2017-05-04 I'm the greatest Nana in the whole wide world after this! If you're buying for a 4-year old boy this is the best present in the world! Live a little and ignore the loud music and get lost in JOY this gift brings. I'm the greatest Nana in the whole wide world after this!
5 Stars By Ruffo on 2017-05-14 Great kids present and a huge hit. Seems well made and is very fun We bought this as a birthday present for a 4 year old train enthusiast and he loves it. When it bumps the wall it turns around and keeps going. It's a huuuge hit and the recipients are very happy!
5 Stars By Dr. Tim on 2016-07-04 Actually works better than advertised! This is a great toy for ages 2 (youngest grandchild) through probably 7 or 8. EXCELLENT bubble blowing .....lots and lots to amuse the children. Catchy tune is belted out along with the bubbles, Seems fairly durable as the 4 year kicked it a few times to make it change direction. You can let it travel along the floor or sidewalk as intended but it also works well when the child picks it up and carries it around. Lights flash, bubbles blow; music is made -- all good stuff.
Recommend you first take it out of the package, find your smallest Phillips head screw driver and use it to remove (the probably unnecessary) screw holding in the flap over the batteries and put in the batteries -- then you can slide the whole thing back into the box. Then, you are ready to go when your child opens the box. Also...it was such a hit that they kids played with it for 20 or 30 minutes first time out of the box -- using up all the bubble solution so you might want extra on hand.
5 Stars By P. Alexander on 2017-03-16 Delightful "Bubble Steam" Locomotive... This was a great hit with my twin three year old Grandchildren (as well as their older siblings) on their third Birthday... Quite delightful...
4 Stars By Junebugwen on 2017-01-05 I do recommend reading the directions though Bought for my 4-year old son, he so so excited to get this for Christmas. I do recommend reading the directions though, I poured the bubble solution into the wrong area and had bubble mix all over my floor. It did make a lot of bubbles though. It is fun to watch it move around and it bumps, turns, and then returns so it doesn't get stuck and keep hitting a wall like some other toys I have purchased. I am only giving 4 stars because when I poured the bubble solution into the right hole, we didn't get as many bubbles as we did on our first try when we put the bubbles in the outgoing spout. My son kept asking me what was wrong with it, I had to keep pouring bubble solution in and then kind of shook it a bit to finally get them to come out.
5 Stars By MovieSign on 2015-11-29 Wish I could give it 6 out of 5 stars. Shattered expectations! I truly wish I could give this toy 6 stars. I bought this for my youngest son who has Autism and loves rains. The look of joy on his face makes this train a steal!
This train has completely exceeded my expectations. It is very responsive. Actually, as responsive to obstacles as my Roomba. The lighting and sound effects are great. I realize that he has only been playing with it for an afternoon, but even the music is tolerable (maybe I will change my tune, ha ha). Most impressive are the bubbles. I thought I saw a reviewer picture with the bubbles kind of oozing out. But this train pumps out some really good little bubbles that go about 2 feet in the air. Very happy. Totally recommend.
5 Stars By AlumiGogo Customer on 2016-08-12 He loved the train Battery compartment didn't accept battery on one side, it got hot and my 3 year old grandson was very unhappy when the soap container leaked all the soap out. He loved the train, wouldn't let it go, so I couldn't ship it back but it was such a very "dis- appointing yet exciting sad gift." He was excited when we got the battery to work and heard the music but things went downhill when it couldn't blow bubbles. As adults we were all so disappointed in its operation . Such an exciting toy but then sad, sad and disappointing. What can I say. Can't imagine how he would have reacted if it worked properly. Me, his grandma was very sorry for him. It was very colorful and looked exciting. Sorry for this review, would much prefer a great reaction.
5 Stars By AlumiGogo Customer on 2017-06-13 Steam Train Locomotive Engine Car Bubble ...product 'just' as advertised ...competitive pricing ...will order more ... will tell others ...excellent product
5 Stars By pting on 2016-01-24 Definite good buy! This was the biggest hit at Christmas. Once my 2 year old grandson opened this, he had no interest in anything else. He has played continually with it. It moves on its own, but a two year old doesn't allow that much. Thought he would have broken it within an hour, but that is one tough little train. The movement, the train noises, and then bubbles.....it was a show stopped! Definite good buy!
