All Aboard the Animal Express Train and learn about Animal Shapes and colors! Animal Express Train has 3 play modes - Learn the Color, and Find It! that are played by simply inserting the plastic animal shapes into their proper slots. Your child can also be the engineer by using the infrared remote control to move the train forward and backwards. While the train chugs along it plays melodies, the wheels move and the nose blinks. The animal shape pieces can be stored in the handy storage compartment inside the train. Numberland Express Train also has an automatic shut-off feature that preserves the battery life of the required three AA batteries for the main unit (included) and two AA batteries for the remote (not included). Recommended for children 18 months and up.
