What they say: Watch and help Thomas, Percy, and Terence pick up and deliver their loads on time throughout Sodor. The fully automated engine magically transforms from Thomas to Percy and Terence, and back again.
What we say: “My son loves anything Thomas and he already has quite a few toys at home, so I knew he was going to love this! I knew he would be all over it so I waited until he went down for a nap so I could put it together; I started by sticking on the stickers, then moved on to putting the track together – you have to click in each side to each other so they almost clip together. Overall very easy to put together.
My son was so eager to play with it, he woke up from his nap and went straight over to play. There is one transforming vehicle that you can swap the tops (Thomas, Percy or Terrance) to what train character you want to be. The transforming vehicle is motorised so it goes around the track – sounds great but the track didn’t stay together well, so the train would come off the track very easily. Any slight knock or movement on the track would make it come apart – this is such a shame as my son loves it but gets very fed up that the track comes apart so easily. If the track can be made more resistant to 3-4 year olds it would be great toy!”
