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

All aboard for an amazing adventure with Thomas! You're going to be amazed by the Thomas & Friends Super Station from Fisher-Price. No matter what Fisher-Price Thomas set your kids are into, this gigantic set will work with them--Minis, Adventures, Track Master and even the Wood Railway. There's lots of track and representations of favorite places in Thomas's world, such as Knapford Station, Dieselworks, Brendam Docks, Blue Mountain Quarry and Sodor Steelworks. In fact, it's a complete Thomas world. All of which will inpsire hours of creative play.

We build the largest set up for this review, what Fisher-Price calls the Dual Racetrack configuration. This is really an impressive set, and we like how well thought out it is. The legs can be used for storage as well, which can make things a little bit more contained. This toy is great for solo or group play, and it goes together fairly easily. As a springboard for imaginative play with a favorite character, it's really outstanding

In this set up, it does look like it takes up most of the Island of Sodor itself. However, the box and the instructions show other possible layouts that don't take up quite as much space. . And, if you have a child who is really into Thomas, you know it takes up a good portion of his or her imagination. Why not let it take over a good part of your house, too? 

Is It Fun?
For fans of Thomas, this is a whole world of imagination potential. The detailing is great, and the representation of all the different places in Thomas' world will encourage all kinds of play. 

We like that it works with all the different Thomas trains. That's a smart move by Fisher-Price, since kids play with all their trains interchangeably. 

Who It’s For
This is for Thomas & Friends fans ages 3 years and up. 

It will be ideal for kids who love to engage in creative, narrative-based play with a favorite friend. The sheer size of this will impress many kids!

What To Be Aware Of
The Thomas Track Master train that's included requires two AAA batteries.

There are several different configurations for setting this up so that it isn't so sprawling, but this is a big toy, no matter how you assemble it. Be ready to give it a good deal of space. 

Although the tracks are designed to work with all the Thomas & Friends trains, the Wooden Railway and Track Master trains seem to work best. They fit on the tracks best.
