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

The Thomas & Friends Wood Racing Figure-8 Set is part of the latest collection of Thomas & Friends Wood toy train sets that have been redesigned with kid-friendly, easy-to-build track. The track connectors fit together easily, allowing preschoolers to build their own track layouts. This set includes wooden Thomas, and Bertie the bus vehicles, a plastic poseable Mayor figure, wood pieces to build a full figure-8 track layout, a train platform, a station map, and two track adaptors for combining other sets. The figure-8 is easy to assemble, and includes plastic crossing gates, and a drawbridge. Kids can build the track layout, race Thomas, and Bertie around, raising and lowering the drawbridge, pick up the mayor at the station, and more. They can help the Mayor sit on the bench on the platform, or ride in Bertie. Many parents will appreciate that the tracks are made with sustainably-sourced wood. The track is compatible using the included adaptors with other wood track systems, including the classic Thomas & Friends Wooden Railway. 


Is It Fun?

This set offers the feel of a classic wooden toy combined with a beloved children's character. The kid-friendly, easy-to-build track is great for preschoolers, making it a perfect intro set for young children, or a fun add-on set for Thomas fans. Many parents will appreciate that the tracks are made with sustainably-sourced wood. The track is compatible using the included adaptors with other wood track systems, so kids can build larger track layouts with sets they already have. This set and the others in the Thomas & Friends line encourage imagination, motor skills, sensory skills, and thinking skills.
