What It Is
The Thomas & Friends Wooden Railway Coal Hopper Figure 8 Set is a 22-piece train set in the shape of a figure eight. The set comes with Thomas and a cargo car that hold together with an integrated magnet. But part of the fun comes from loading up the car with coal. The coal piece fits into the hopper, and when the cargo car is positioned under it, a press on the top releases it into the car.
Is It Fun?
The Thomas & Friends Wooden Railway Coal Hopper Figure 8 Set is engaging by itself, or a great starter set or addition to a Thomas Wooden Railway set. The triangular shape of the coal piece is easy for small hands to grasp and slide into the hopper, and the action is one that kids will enjoy repeating and will inspire open-ended, narrative-based play with a favorite character. The bridge is great for over/under play that preschoolers will enjoy.
Who It’s For
The Thomas & Friends Coal Hopper Figure 8 Set is for Thomas fans ages 3 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
The track goes together easily, though an adult may need to help the youngest kids, and it stays together well. For best results, use on a flat, hard surface.
