EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

The DC superheroes have met Thomas & Friends in the Fisher-Price Thomas and Friends DC Super Friends Mini Playwheel. This neat little collectors wheel includes two trains who you might not recognize, Gator as Green Lantern and Stephen as Sinestro. This set holds up to 16 engines so kids can collect, trade, and play with their trains. This is a great display case or take-along toy to keep all your DC Super Friends-themed MINIS in one place.

Is It Fun?

This collectors wheel is a must for fans - especially if it combines two of your child's favorite things. It's got comic book designs and DC superhero logos all around the outside of the wheel, which makes for a really cool cover as your MINIS snugly sit inside the case. It's also very light so transportation will be a cinch - even with a full case. Kids will appreciate the convenience of being able to take up to 16 of their MINIS engines wherever they go and parents will be surprised at how any of these toy trains they can fit. The two included trains are great for kids to roleplay, tell stories, and combine with other MINIS-themed playsets, which are sold separately.

Who It’s For

The Fisher-Price Thomas & Friends DC Super Friends Mini Playwheel is for ages 3 and up and made by Mattel. The pinwheel shape is fun to look at and the comic book logos and action bubbles will help add to the "cool factor" of the carrying case. This is excellent for young fans of both DC superheroes and Thomas & Friends. As their collection of MINIS engines grows, they'll have more than enough space to accommodate them without making a mess in their room.

What To Be Aware Of

The Fisher-Price Thomas & Friends DC Super Friends Mini Playwheel from Mattel includes a DC Comics-themed pinwheel carrying case and two MINIS train engines that are a collaboration of DC Comics and Thomas & Friends characters (Gator as Green Lantern and Stephen as Sinestro). It fits up to 16 MINIS engines and is light for travel. Additional MINIS trains (DC superhero-themed or otherwise) and playsets are sold separately.
