Fisher-Price Thomas and Friends Musical Melody Tracks Set

April 11, 2016

 

 

(Fisher-Price $160)  Platinum Award

 

Such a great wooden train set with action easy enough for young preschoolers to do. This is a show-stopper, with a water wheel that spins and loads cargo onto passing trains and a bridge that plays music as Thomas and Friends roll over the bridge and around the curve. It says the tune is their theme song, but we didn't hear it really; the sound is just low key and pleasing. We really like that this is a kid-activated toy, no need for lights or big tricks. It is a pricey set but comes with several major accessories and plenty of track. Along with Thomas and a flatbed carrier, the set includes a waterwheel cargo loader, the musical bridge, one ascending up hill track, 10 curves, 4 long tracks, two stone wall tracks, a bumpy track and one with pegs to grip the waterwheel. The tracks are compatible with older sets and can be added to existing sets or laid out in a variety of ways. Best of all, there is no absolute right and wrong way to use this set. Ideal for 3 & up.  Award Year: 2015.
