My child just started getting into Thomas trains after Fisher Price made the switch to the inferior “Wood” line. Although they seem to be saving money by using a lot less paint and more plastic, the cost of the product to customers has not gone down! I paid $46.75 for this product.
The Good: This version of Cranky looked similar to the Wooden Railway version and I liked that it came with a boat and person.
The Bad: Upon arrival, I noticed that Cranky is mounted on a giant plastic platform with straight tracks that cannot be removed. It is simply too large to be incorporated into my kids current train table setup.
The Outcome: Luckily, I was able to find the original Wooden Railway Cranky online for the same price from a national B&N bookstore online, so I ordered right away and will return this “Wood” one.
As far as the “Wood” products go, it’s not as bad as some of the others, but they should consider removing the giant plastic platform and $39.99 would be a more appropriate price. (I noticed that Fisher Price just marked up this version to $59.99 on their site and there is no way I’d ever pay that for a product that is mostly plastic.)
I really hope Fisher Price listens to their customers and goes back to a high quality Wooden Railway version of their products. We won’t be purchasing any of the “Wood” line going forward.
