EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is
Take control of the Sodor Steamworks with Thomas & Friends Take-n-Play Train Maker. This is a take-along train set featuring Thomas and his pals Salty and Diesel. The custom train-building playset takes place at the Sodor Steamworks where kids can assemble the trains. These mix-and-match pieces connect together to create super fun engine mashups. To create the mashup, simply drop the components into the staging area, insert the pieces into the bays, then press the lever down to chug, chug, chug along the assembly line. Once complete, you should have one super cool engine mashup. An accessory bin keeps additional parts stored. 
Is It Fun?
This is a great playset that takes Thomas & Friends play to a very creative new level. Kids will enjoy roleplaying and coming up with their own creative train stories while also working on their motor skills as they put the pieces of the train together. A small handle allows the playset to fold up for storage or for take-along, on-the-go fun. It's easy to put your trains together before watching them roll down the track and out of the Sodor Steamworks to reunite with their train buddies. 
Who It’s For
This is for ages 3 and up and will catch the eyes of Thomas fans. They'll be reinforcing their motor skills and enjoy creating and customizing their trains as they mix and match the pieces. The three trains and two included engine chassis means that there's plenty of replay value and combination possibilities in store for all growing engineers. 
What To Be Aware Of
The Thomas & Friends Take-n-Play Train Maker includes the playset, two engine chassis, nine engine body parts, and six accessory pieces to build custom trains. The train helps develop gross motor skills and sensory skills as kids put together unique trains or make Thomas, Salty, and Diesel trains to play with. The track and train pieces can connect to other Take-n-Play tracks, which are sold separately. Magnets at the end of the train chassis allow trains from this set to connect to other Take-n-Play vehicles, which are also sold separately.
