OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

The Go! Go! Smart Wheels Mickey Choo-Choo Express from VTech combines the fun of the popular Go! Go! Smart Wheels line of interactive playsets with classic Disney characters. This train station- themed set includes colorful tracks, and locations. There's a popcorn stand with a Goofy hat you press to see Goofy pop up, Donald at the ticket booth, a rotating track sign, a clock with moving Mickey Mouse hands, a moving flag, a Welcome sign, a rotating switch track and gate, and more. It also comes with a Mickey Mouse talking train with flashing headlights that plays music, and says phrases, and fun sounds including teaching the letter "T". The music and sounds are activated by turning the train on, and pressing Mickey's head, moving the train along, or placing it on any of the five SmartPoint locations. You'll hear different responses including three sing-along songs, and six melodies. Kids can build with the the tracks, and then take Mickey for a ride over the bridge and to the station - with lots of interactivity along the way. We found the playset easy to assemble and the tracks can be configured in many different ways. Additional Disney playsets and character cars are available, which offer a great way to expand imaginative play. Each vehicle responds to SmartPoint locations but can also be played with off the playset. 

Is It Fun?

The Go! Go! Smart Wheels line is very popular, and offers hands on play to preschoolers. The addition of Mickey and his friends is a fun way to expand the line, and imaginative play possibilities. We found the Choo-Choo Express easy to assemble, and activate, and we love how interactive the set is. It offers a great way to work on motor skills. The music, and sounds add to the fun. 

Who It’s For

Recommended for kids ages 1-5 years old, it's fun for preschoolers who like trains, and vehicle play, as well as young Mickey Mouse fans.

What To Be Aware Of

Two AAA batteries are included for the train though those are for demo purposes and should be replaced before playing for best results. We found the playset easy to assemble, and the tracks can be configured in different ways. Additional Disney Go! Go! Smart Wheels playsets, and character cars are also available, and sold separately. The sets can be combined to expand imaginative play. Each vehicle responds to SmartPoint locations on the various playsets but can also be played with off the playsets.
