Part of the Talking Railway Series, this set inspired by the "The Great Discovery Set" story! Features exclusive Talking Railway destination Morgan's Mine with the Fat Controller and engine recognition. Also includes Great Waterton Station, 2 Talking Railway Series engines, Thomas and Stanley, and more. The Talking Railway Series brings the world of Thomas & Friends to life like never before. With its built-in engine recognition technology, each Talking Railway Series vehicle activates personalised greetings from Sir Topham Hatt himself at Talking Railway Series destinations. Hear the Fat Controller recognise the engines by name..."Rosie, you are right on time!" and "Hello, Percy" or "Thomas, you must stop at the red signal." The more Talking Railway engines you add, the more interactive your world becomes! Bringing Thomas and his friends to life like never before, the Thomas & Friends Wooden Talking Railway System uses new Engine Recognition Technology to activate over 200 possible personalised phrases (when used with Talking Railway engines) from the Fat Controller at Talking Railway Series destinations (sold separately). The Thomas Wooden Railway Talking Railway Series includes familiar character favourites Thomas, Edward, Toby, Rosie, Emily, Gordon, James and Percy; each of which are greeted by name by the Fat Controller as they pass through various Talking Railway Series Destinations. Engines include magnets to attach other cars and vehicles. The magnet connector is gold in order to differentiate Talking Railway engines from the regular Thomas Wooden Railway System engines. The engines also include personalised gold name and Engine Recognition icons on their base and can interact with the traditional engines by triggering non-personalised messages to enhance the Thomas play experience. Vehicles aid in developing language, fine motor skills, colour identification and counting skills. The more Talking Railway engines you add, the more interactive your world becomes! Each destination features unique phrases...a new experience every time! The classic Thomas train play patterns take on a new twist with the "magical" engine recognition technology making this a truly unique addition to the Thomas Wooden Railway system. By Learning Curve.
