The Talk n' Action Magic Rail Set is more than your average train set thanks to its special interactive "magic" green tracks.
The full set consists of 26 pieces of blue track of varying shapes and sizes; 6 magic interactive green track pieces; an easy-to-assemble tunnel; a battery-operated Thomas, resplendent with his faithful carriages Annie and Clarabel; station house and five trees.
While this train track will be enjoyed by train drivers from 3 to 6 years old, children under 5 years will need an adult to assemble the somewhat elaborate circuit--though the instructions are clear and easy to follow. The complexity of this sturdy track, complete with four points switches plus inner and outer circuits, is then a real bonus as it holds the concentration of older children too.
. Thomas and carriages are powered by three AA batteries (not included) secretly stored in Annie. Add the batteries, flick the switch and Peep Peep! We're off on a thrilling and very special journey...
Every time Thomas passes over one of the six green interactive track pieces something magical happens. At the very least Thomas will puff a cheery little greeting "Here we Go" or more often he will change speed too. "Here we go. Hurry, Hurry" Thomas calls to Annie and Clarabel as he speeds up around the corner. Share Thomas's concern as his engine stops and starts and our endearing little hero mutters "Oh dear". Watch the dashing young engine skid to a halt at the station and exclaim "All aboard" before a peep of his whistle announces his departure. Peep Peep!
Fans of Tomy Tomica World Sets will be pleased to know that the Talk n'Action Magic Rail Set is fully compatible with other Tomica Sets--although only Thomas can trigger the interaction with the magic green tracks.
Fully assembled the circuit covers 1.38 cm in length and is 82 cm at its widest point. Suitable for children from 3 to 6 years old. A truly magical experience for all Thomas and train fans.
