about this item

The Take-n-Play Train Maker lets you build your own engines in just a few easy steps! Just load three train parts into the hopper and load the chassis onto the platform . Pull the handle to raise the chassis up to the assembly line, then press the plunger three times… the engine advances down the assembly line as the hoppers drop parts onto the chassis! A final pull of the handle lowers the press and snaps all the parts firmly onto the chassis. You can even snap on extra accessories to customize your engine! Includes two chassis (one with three wheels and one with two wheels), three engine body styles based on Thomas, Salty and Diesel with three pieces each, and four pairs of accessory pieces. For ages 3 and up.

This train maker is so much fun for my two boys! I love that it gets them to use their imaginations and grows their creativity. It helps them to be little engineers and teaches them how to plan ahead with the staging area. The multiple steps of building the trains are great for my older son and the ...  see moreof TigerGin's review

    This toy was used by a just turned 3 yr old boy. He loved it! He played for over an hour by himself, after he had played with an adult. Pushing the big button to move the trains along was fun! He would look carefully at the details on the accessories to pick how he wanted his train to look. Ver...  see moreof midmichigan's review

      This is a very cute toy for Thomas fans and budding engineers. My kids had a blast making their engines, and had a great time mismatching heads and bodies. Set up was very easy (a few pieces to snap into place and no stickers to put on!!!!!!) In terms of play, there are a few flaws. The train ch...  see moreof AZmama's review

          It is fun for my 3 and 6 year old girls. They love building the various combinations. The lever is a bit tricky for my 3 year old's hands. The item is very travel friendly and self contained. I wish they sold more trains for it. I know they'll lose small pieces in no time and the ability to make jus...  see moreof YooMakeMeSwoon's review

            This is a lot of fun for both my four-year-old and my seven-year-old. You put the different sections of the trains in the slots, put the base in the bottom, and hit the red switch three times. Your constructed train comes shooting down the track. Be warned, though...if the parts aren't facing th...  see moreof StefK's review

              My preschooler has spent many hours playing with the Thomas & Friends Take-n-Play Engine Maker since receiving it last week. Setup was fairly easy, but if you're prone to not reading instructions before assembly, please be aware that a piece of the track is located inside the plastic instruction bag...  see moreof Moonbeamer's review

                I received this toy for my daughter through the Rate & Review program. She loves mixing & matching the train pieces to create her own engines. A few concerns: - There are some very small pieces, so I would definitely advise against this toy for any child under 3. - The lever to 'finish' your en...  see moreof cloudynik's review
