Thomas & Friends Wood Lift & Load Cargo Set Review (Fisher-Price)

Thomas & Friends Wood Lift & Load Cargo Set
What It Is

Help deliver the cargo with Charlie and the Troublesome Trucks when you build and play with the Thomas & Friends Wood Lift & Load Cargo Set. This features a newly redesigned look for the wooden train sets and train engines with easier-to-build track and more exposed wood on the engines. Plus, it's made from sustainably sourced wood.

This track set includes a Charlie train engine, two Troublesome Trucks, a crane operator figure, two cargo pieces, and 16 pieces for building a track layout with a transfer crane, a cargo loading station, ramps, and a four-way crossing with knob to switch the train's direction.

Press the lever on the loading station to drop cargo into a Troublesome Truck. Tip the bed of the truck to dump the cargo down the ramp. Or drive the train to the crane and rotate the knob to lift and lower the magnet that will pick up the cargo. Slide the crane to shift the cargo to the other side where the other truck waits.

You also get two track adaptors so that you can connect this set with Thomas & Friends Wooden Railway sets you may already own.

Is It Fun?

Preschool train fans will like driving around the train and the trucks, and picking up and dumping the cargo. It will be a fun way to get a train set started for the youngest train engineer. While the classic wooden look of the set will certainly have an appeal to parents, Thomas fans will just like seeing favorite characters and making up their own stories with this train set.  

Who It’s For

The Lift & Load Cargo Set will be fun for young Thomas fans ages 3 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

Assembling the track is easy to do, and you can connect this with other wooden track sets, including the Thomas & Friends Wooden Railway, sold separately.
