During this time of the year two things are certain: 1. Everyone is looking for the hottest toys for this holiday season and 2. everyone is looking for a great deal that keeps on giving. Well friends, sit down because I’ve got something that will help you with both. Today, I am sharing my review on the Thomas & Friends Super Station.
Thomas & Friends Super Station Toy Review
First, let’s break down what this toy is…
Now, for the first time ever you can Set Friendship in Motion™ and play with your Thomas & Friends™ Adventures, TrackMaster™, MINIS and Wooden Railway engines all in the same set! The Thomas & Friends™ Super Station™ features tracks that work with all these systems. Layouts can be changed to fit any space, and the set’s height and width makes it effortless for children to come together and play with siblings and friends. It comes with Thomas (TrackMaster™), Percy (Thomas & Friends™ Adventures), James (MINIS) and Harold. Best of all, with this set, children can also use any engines they already have (NOTE: does not work with My First Thomas engines). The set also holds over 100 engines. It’s the ultimate Thomas & Friends™ track set!
This set is HUGE. I mean, the name says it all… SUPER STATION and it truly is super! It took my husband about a 30-45 minutes to put together. Once completed, my son was so eager to play.
My son’s favorite part of this set (besides all the trains) was the crane! Cranky’ the Crane’s crane can be raised, lowered and attached to a cargo lift, plus lots of cargo storage in the legs, which also can be used as tunnels. The turntable let
s little engineers choose directions for their engines, and there’s even a stop-track feature for TrackMaster™ engines!
What I love most about this play set is that there are multiple layouts you can put this together in making it easy to fit any space and play pattern! That is perfect if you are working with minimal space (remember how I said it was big before? Don’t let that scare you). The Compact layout allows for a lot more track – perfect for floor play. If you have limited space, the legs can be removed for a Micro Layout. The Racetrack layout lets you zoom your engines down the track, and the Dual Racetrack layout provides side-by-side racing action that you can share with a friend. You can also add and extend track in various directions to expand your fun.
Plus, if you are wanting to expand your play, you can do that too. Super Station™ is connectable to other sets! Track adaptor pieces allow you to connect the Super Station™ to tracks and playsets from Thomas & Friends™ Adventures, TrackMaster™ MINIS and Wooden Railway, so you can make Super Station™ part of a larger world of play and imagine everything from very busy days on Sodor to epic adventures! It truly is the gift that keeps on giving.
My final thoughts:
- Built well and is sturdy
- Provides hours of play
- Colorful construction is fun and inviting
- Teaches kids building skills, improves fine motor skills and enhances overall play
- Is a toy that can grow with your kids
Overall, I don’t have anything negative to say about this play set. My boys love playing with it (especially my 3-year-old who loves trains). I truly think this will make an amazing holiday gift.
