Fun Racing Train Set

This is a great set. It went together very easily and quickly (even more quickly once I realized the track numbers referenced in the instructions are actually molded on the back of the track pieces) and has stayed together despite plenty of racing by two crazy boys. It does have 10 stickers that needed to be applied as well. The trains start off next to each other and the race starts when you throw a switch. This is probably my only complaint - there is a separate switch for each train to start. My 6-year-old is a little quicker on the draw than my 3-year-old, so his train tended to win more often. However, in my own trials (when I flipped both switches simultaneously) I found that either train could win on either track, which I did really like. The trains start off, go up a hill, make a loop, and come back to the starting point. It looks like the trains are going to crash, which adds to the drama of the set. My kids loved that when the trains cross the finish line fireworks go off! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]


Must Have for Thomas the Tank Engine Fans!

My kids recently received a TrackMaster Thomas and Percy Railway Race set. The set comes with a lot of pieces, but is simple to put together. The tracks are labeled on the bottom with letters/numbers and the instructions have easy to follow illustrations. The kids really enjoyed being able to help construct the set. The tracks are well made, yet light weight and easy to take apart and put back together (which is great for storage when play time is over). Thomas and Percy are both motorized which allows them to glide along the tracks with ease, so make sure to have some AAA batteries on hand! The colors are nice and vibrant and Thomas and Percy can go pretty fast! This train set is a lot of fun to play with, my 3 year old loves racing against her sister and gets a kick out of the bursting bridge and little fireworks at the end of the track. So far Percy is her favorite. I would definitely recommend this train set to other parents with children who love Thomas the Tank Engine! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]


Lots of Fun

My two little girls are in love with the Railway Race Set. They both Love to Race Percy and Thomas Head to head. They both love to count down 3,2,1, and easily push the brakes forward and watch the trains race head to head. The bridge bursts open to make way for the trains. They like how the flags move when the train passes on the curved section. It’s easy to see who is the winner because as the first train crosses the finish line the flag signals the winner. The raised track is longer than the track on the bottom. This did not seem a fair race to me. Regardless of this, some strong engines win even if they take the longer track. The track layout is around 6 feet and you need a long open space to play with it. I would have liked the packages the tracks come in to be labeled with the specific track location for easier assembly, but i still had it set up for my girls within 20 min. This was lots of fun and keeps my girls busy for hours. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]


Great Train Set!

My 4 year old son was able to put together the Thomas & Percy's Railway Race Set with a little assistance from me. The tracks are very sturdy and durable. The motorized Thomas and Percy engines glide smoothly along the track and rarely get derailed. My 4 year old son and 3 year old daughter really enjoyed watching the engines race along the track especially as they sped through the bridge that bursts apart to make way for the engines. This was a really cool feature. The gantry that allows the checkered flag and fireworks to pop up at the end of the race kept toppling over as the engines sped through it. I believe this is due to it it being freestanding and not attached to the track. Nevertheless, this train set has quickly become my son and daughters favorite train set! My son really liked the unique look of the motorized Thomas engine that comes with this track as it different from the other Thomas engines he already has.

NOT impressed!!

So we received this Thomas the train and Percy Railway Racetrack set a little over a week ago. My 4yr old daughter was super pumped since she loves trains and Thomas! After opening and assembling the train track we were excited to start racing! The colors are vibrant which catches young ones attention and the battery operated trains were a plus, HOWEVER, once we started racing the trains could not seem to stay on track! For a toy that is almost $50 I'd expect them to at least stay on its course! I'd say 3 out of every 5 times we put them on the starting line, they fell off the train tracks. It was neat that the bridge broke open, but it didn't do anything else. The most exciting part of it was when they would actually make it to the finish line and pass the flag mark to shoot plastic fireworks out!! Needless to say I was not impressed with this item nor would I tell anyone to purchase it at the price it is retailing for! My daughter does love that Thomas and Percy run on batteries and can roll across the floor! She doesn't play with the whole set, but the trains hold her attention.
