Kids can control the action and feel like a real engineer with the Fisher-Price Thomas and Friends Remote-Controlled Thomas. The easy-to-use, easy-to-hold remote control is ideal for small hands. Children can move Thomas forward and backward by pressing one of the two very large buttons on the remote. Both the toy and the remote are made of a durable plastic that is safe for children and will stand up to impact. This R/C Thomas Fisher-Price toy is ideal as a first hands-on, remote-control experience for your little engineer. Both the toy and the remote control are battery operated.
