I bought this about a year ago to have a mess around with. I didn't buy to use as a toy, I bought it to see if I could build a camera rig for circling around objects to get that rotating photo effect you see on some e-commerce websites.

The toy itself is pretty typical tat. Cheap plastic, poor joints and the motor mechanism is as simple as it could possibly be. You wouldn't want to give it to a young child.

However, what stood out was the smell. The train and its wagons were coated in a very smelly oily substance that smelled a bit like petrol, mixed with WD40 and some random chemicals. Its was nasty, potent and long lasting. Handling the toy gave my skin the same sensation that you would get from handling leaking zinc carbon batteries. Sort of greasy and itchy at the same time.

I wondered if the chemical could catch fire, yes it could.

Lesson learned.
