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

Thomas the Tank Engine has a brand-new friend and a brand-new way to play. Meet Stefano, a Super Cruiser and the centerpiece of the Thomas & Friends Super Cruiser playset. Stefano is a transport vehicle and track set in one. That means kids can roll Stefano around as a vehicle or attach him to the track pieces. There are 35 pieces giving kids the option of creating one of four different track configurations. The track pieces are labeled with letters and numbers to make it easy to find the piece you need. Some of the completed layouts utilize the helipad, which serves as a landing spot for Harold the helicopter, sold separately, and also doubles as a track riser for making two-level tracks. This can be combined with other Thomas & Friends train sets and expansion packs for even more customization and bigger railways. And it works with TrackMaster, MINIS, and Wood engines.

There are also accessories that can be attached to the Super Cruiser for play, such as the working winch. Or Stefano can be removed from the cruiser deck and rolled around with space for attaching the winch, shovel, and drill. 

The track set comes with a Trackmaster Thomas engine to push along the track, plus two Thomas & Friends MINIS: Nia and Percy. When playtime is over, all of the engines can be stored inside the Super Cruiser. There's space for up to 50 Thomas & Friends engines.

Is It Fun?

We like how there are so many ways for kids to play with Stefano and their other Thomas & Friends train engines on this track set. There are also lots of ways for kids to assemble the track to create their own railways. This is all about customization and creative building, while also bringing together three different lines of Thomas & Friends toy engines: Wood, TrackMaster, and MINIS. This gives kids space to play with and store their entire Thomas collection.

Who It’s For

The Thomas & Friends Super Cruiser is for Thomas fans ages 3 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

Assembly is required but is easy to do. Taking apart the track pieces requires a bit of force, so younger kids might need help with that.

You can store 10 Metal, seven Motorized, five Wood, and 25 MINIS engines inside the Super Cruiser. 

AT A GLANCE:
