Chuggington is a British animated television series which set in the fictional town of Chuggington with six young novice railway trainees named Wilson, Brewster, Koko, Hoot, Toot and Piper.
This year 2014, TOMY will introduce a ‘taking it to the top’ strategy with a collection of escalators and lifts to move trains and equipment up the elevated tracks. Each StackTrack™ playset can be built in multiple ways, and each set connects together providing endless possibilities.
This new sturdy Tunnel and Bridge Playset includes a High-Performance (HP) Brewster Bruno, a tunnel and overhead signal. It is suitable for 3yrs+ and available in Spring 2014 for GRP £19.99.
There are three ways to build the tracks as shown in the photo or you can let the children come up with their own designs instead.
Each piece of track is very well made and easy to connect and remove. Once built, it is very sturdy. I love that they added some features based on the show that are very realistic like the traffic light – it can change from green to red by pushing the lever. Also on both sides of the tunnel, it comes with a stop and go barrier which is very interesting.
Both my children love to speed Brewster through the tunnel and narrate their own scenario. We also received three different StackTrack trains: Chug-A-Sonic Koko and passenger car; Chuggineer Brewster and digger car; Chug Patroller Wilson and CP1 claw car. There are all able to attach together by a simple mechanism; push and clip. Both my children are able to do it with ease. Each individual train is light, well-made and easy to manoeuvre. The colour on the trains are very bright and attractive. The digger car comes with an extendable arm to dig further. The CP1 claw car comes with a claw that can rotate 360 degree and able to move up and down.
Overall, this is an excellent playset that would suit any train or Chuggington fans. It provide endless fun to the children. I personally love the quality and my children love playing with them.
