Kids dove right into play with the newest SmartMax set, Tommy Train.
With eyes as headlights, this guy has a personality of his own, with a pull-back feature that starts him on the road. Children were constructing and changing their train so fast, my pictures were literally blurry! With two possible wagons to load and unload, wheels and magnetic metal bars, the possibilities are endless. The excitement is in the learning as magnetic bars and balls attract and repel, and players experiment with their construction. Trains are popular with kids, but take on a language learning dimension when they have a face and become animated. Once built, Tommy can carry on conversations as he travels through pretend play. Compatible with other SmartMax sets, Tommy took on a new look as children gave him height and length to get to his next destination of fun!
