Hape Crank-Powered Engine
With all the amazing new trains we’ve seen this season, this is one of our newest favorites! It’s totally child-powered with a simple twist of a crank. No batteries, no solar plates, no kidding—your child simply needs to turn the crank handle around and around and the tiny generator inside the train is powered. It’s like the battery-free flashlights you may have used in the past. There’s a switch on the bottom that needs to be turned on and a button on top to press and then the magic begins—lights, sounds, action! The sleek bright red engine is ready to roll and even pull a few cars along. Just when you thought you had seen every train add-on imaginable—here’s a new winner! Add this to any wooden toy train collection to re-spark a lively interest in those wooden tracks. 3 and up.
