Smart Tech Smart Engine Set with Action Tunnels Review (Brio)

Smart Tech Smart Engine Set with Action Tunnels
What It Is

Classic train play meets new technology with BRIO's Smart Tech Smart Engine Set with Action Tunnels. Set it up like a regular wooden train set, but then turn on the motorized train for the interactive features to begin. Using RFID technology, the Smart Tech engine activates sounds, lights, and motion when it chugs underneath the tunnels and destination piece. 

One tunnel is all about sounds, while another one reverses the train's direction. And the third one makes the train come to a stop. You can also activate more lights, sounds, and stop-and-go motion when you change the traffic light at the station. 

The tunnels can be placed in any configuration, so kids can rearrange them to create new play situations each time. Plus, this set is compatible with other Smart Tech products, sold separately, to expand the play.

The set also includes a poseable figure that can ride in the train car.

Is It Fun?

Kids will like the interactivity between the train and the tunnels, and seeing what each tunnel makes the train do. They can set it up in different ways and control the behavior between the engine and tunnels, allowing them to be a little more active in the train play. Plus, the set can be expanded to really give the train room to chug along and interact with more pieces.

Who It’s For

The Smart Engine Set with Action Tunnels is for ages 3 and up. This will be a fun train set for little train engineers.
