Our Personal Thomas and Friends Super Station Review
We gave the boys the Thomas & Friends™ Super Station™ for their birthday. Since they both have October birthdays, we love to brainstorm a joint gift that is something that they both really want and they can both enjoy! Recently the boys were getting very excited every single time they saw the commercial on tv for the Thomas & Friends™ Super Station™ and they would shout “that’s what I want!” So it was clearly at the top of their wish list!
Their eyes lit up when they unwrapped the box! The big box alone has a huge impact! And then, we had already set the train up in their playroom so when they saw it they were just over the moon excited!
The Set Up
If you are anything like our family, you have had that unspeakable experience when setting up or assembling a toy in the past. Or maybe you’ve been asked, “how long is this going to take” with the added eye roll from the husband. Well, I’m happy to report that setting up the Thomas & Friends™ Super Station™ is not a dreaded task! There are very simple to follow pictorial instructions included and each of the pieces are labeled. It makes assembling the track easy since there is no confusion and the pieces easily snap together.
The boys actually love taking the tracks apart and setting it up in different configurations in the playroom. The tracks are simple for them to put together and they love being able to do it all on their own and I love to see them playing together and using their imaginations!
The Thomas & Friends™ Super Station™ has 3 levels of play and multiple configuration options to allow it to fit in any space, while also giving you the freedom to piece the track together in nearly any direction your imagination takes you.
What Makes This Train Set Unique
What makes this set unique is that the tracks can be constructed to fit multiple areas. The multiple configurations the Super Station™ has allows it to fit in any space in your home. The legs can even be removed to create a micro-layout for smaller spaces! There are no worries about storing the trains because the set alone will hold over 100 engines. So don’t worry about there being a collection of tiny Thomas’ on your floor. Engines can be hooked onto the green towers that hold the station up as it doubles as a storage space.
How Can You Extend the Play?
Super Station™ is connectable to other sets! Track adaptor pieces allow you to connect the Super Station™ to tracks and playsets from Thomas & Friends™ Adventures, TrackMaster™, MINIS and Wooden Railway, so you can make Super Station™ part of a larger world of play and epic adventures!
Collaborative Play and Thomas & Friends Super Station
Play is an extremely important part of development. It’s how children learn. Play develops the skills children need to advance their emotional, social, physical, and cognitive abilities. Both of my boys have spent endless hours hooking together engines and seeing that Thomas and his friends really can do more when they work together. Through collaborative play children learn to master important new social skills, such as sharing, taking turns, obeying rules, and negotiating. This train set is an easy and fun way for children of all ages to engage in collaborative play.
Thomas and Friends Super Station Key Highlights:
- Works with Thomas & Friends™ Adventures, TrackMaster™, MINIS and Wooden Railway engines
- Comes with Thomas & Friends™ TrackMaster™ Thomas, and his friends Thomas & Friends™ Adventures Percy, Thomas & Friends™ MINIS James and Harold
- Multiple configurations of layouts to fit into any space
- Remove legs for micro layouts to fit small spaces
- Holds over 100 engines
With the holidays quickly approaching, the Thomas & Friends™ Super Station™ which is available at Walmart is a perfect gift to give to the tiny conductor in training in your life. The track includes adapters that can connect to other Thomas & Friends™ playsets and since this particular play set will work with any Thomas engine, there is no guesswork when picking out additional Thomas toys to pair with this station.
With over 35 feet of track, the possibilities are endless! My handsome train conductors have enjoyed hours upon hours of fun-filled imaginative play with this set, and watching them giggle as the trains roll down the track has brought so much joy to our household.
