Hape Busy City Rail Set
Here’s a big 51-piece train set with a sleek red passenger train plus a cargo train with magnetic lift off cargo containers. There’s a magnetic freight arm that does the heavy lifting. There’s a red roofed station for arrivals and departures and a tall red suspension bridge. A train crossing blocks the way for the cars on the highway and trucks making deliveries in the city. With 20 pieces of track in eight shapes plus trees, signs, underpass bridge, signs, clock, traffic light, and people, this is a set that will go the distance. A grand gift for years of pretend play that involves putting the track together in many different designs and creating stories with ever more complex scenarios. 3 and up.
