Thomas and Daniel are both very big Thomas and Friends fans so when they were asked to review the new TrackMaster Twisting Tornado Set, they jumped at the chance! The Twisting Tornado Set is aimed at children from 3 years plus so Daniel aged 4 and Thomas aged 6 are the perfect testers for the new TrackMaster set.
Included the box are the instructions, a special tornado TrackMaster Thomas (needs 2 x AAA batteries to work), different types of track and a platform which the tornado fits into that allows Thomas to spin around and collapse the shed. Construction of the set took about 10-15 minutes and I left it up ready for when Thomas and Daniel returned from school and pre-school.
In the Twisting Tornado Set, Thomas is speeding around the rails when he encounters something totally unexpected – a tornado! Children can send motorised Thomas on the tracks towards the covered shed, but when he enters, the tornado spins Thomas and the shed on a path of destruction! As the shed turns, it bursts apart and knocks over powerlines before delivering Thomas safely to the other track. For even more excitement, children can rush to reset the shed before Thomas makes his way back to the gap in the tracks. There is a stop/go switch so children can decide when to send Thomas into the tornado. The stop/go switch also allows parents or older siblings to control Thomas and allow younger children to reset the shed.
The key features are:
- Motorised track set
- Includes unique Thomas TrackMaster engine
- Connects to other TrackMaster playsets
- RRP £24.99
- Suitable for age 3 years+
Thomas and Daniel both loved the set as soon as they saw it. They took it in turns setting up the shed and using the stop/go switch to control Thomas. I loved how simple it was to set up and seeing the enjoyment on both their faces as they played without any disagreement for once. In addition, I liked the extra little details in the set including the cow spinning on the tornado and how the electricity cables fall over as the tornado spins through. I think it is a bargain for £24.99 and would make an ideal alternative Easter gift for any Thomas and Friends fan in your life!
