26 railway animations with sounds.
52 capital and small letter animations!
First, the child may press the UPPER/LOWER button to choose whether to see the animation for the uppercase or lowercase version of the letter.
Then the child enters a letter by pressing a letter trigger. An animation showing the correct way to form the letter appears on the LCD.
In addition, animations that match the example word for each letter play with appropriate sound effects.
The child is then asked to write the letter on the writing surface.

A: My son won't quit playing with it
This toy provides hours of entertainment. As the child draws letters of the alphabet, a drawing on the LCD screen unfolds, and sound effects and voice effects come through the speaker. Any kid who enjoys books about trains and is learning to write can get a great deal of use from this set.
B: Great Educational Book!
My son got this book for his 3rd birthday. He LOVED it! He would sit forever pushing the letters and often repeating what it said. It's nice that it shows graphics as well as step by step to writing each letter. It also uses several words starting with the letter in a sentence. After only a week or two, he knew at least 1/4 of the letters and every day he used it he would learn a couple more. He looked through the book once in a while but just the sound board was very educational in itself. Being barely 3 he was just starting to practice writing but just knowing which letter is which is pretty good in my opinion! We're trying to decide between Thomas again or another character after he decided to take it into the tub with him. He took it every where! Definitely worth the price!
C: Great gift for Thomas lovers
I got this for my nephew for Christmas, and he seemed to really like it. I don't know how well it has held up, but he is a big Thomas fan and he was really excited about the book. He was also excited to draw letters- he kept showing us what he did all by himself
