Recently we were asked if we would take a look at the new Fisher Price Thomas & Friends TrackMaster Shipwreck Rails Set and I can honestly say we had a super excited little boy who could not wait to get his hands on it!
The set is aimed at age 3+ and was more than ideal for the little fingers of my 4-year-old, it is compatible with Thomas and Friends Trackmaster motorized engines but other than Thomas these are sold separately and you will need 2AAA batteries!
The toy train set itself comes with good instructions, however they really weren’t needed as it was super simple for even my husband to put the set together and it only took a few minutes.
Thomas himself has a really easy to operate switch on him that starts him moving automatically and he then works his way round the track, when he gets to the flip bit he drives in and the mechanism flings him upside down and around ready for the next part of the track and to be fair this made us all laugh every time! …. We found it very addictive watching him go round and my little fella loves try to make it go the opposite way round the track and then laughs when its doesn’t go round the flipping part only to turn it and make it go the right way.
For any Thomas & Friends fans I can certainly see this on the Christmas lists this year and I have no doubt that any little one that receives it will be super happy.
