Do you have a Thomas The Train fan in your home? If so, the Thomas and Friends Big Loader from TOMY is a must-have! Similar to the classic Big Loader set, this toy gives a nice upgrade to a toy we’ve always known and loved. The Thomas and Friends Big Loader includes one mechanical vehicle chassis, three vehicle bodies, over eight feet of track and destinations, and loads of cargo to haul around! What makes this set so unique is the fully automated engine that transforms between Thomas to Percy and Terence, and back again. Watching the cargo transfer between the different friends provides hours of fun! I originally got this toy for my nephew who is a huge Thomas fan, however the second my daughter spotted it at the front door she was begging to open it!The set was extremely easy to assemble, and took less than five minutes to be up and ready to use. It did require 1AA battery which was not included, but we happen to keep a stash of batteries around for toys. I thought that the trains would have an issue transferring the cargo back and forth, however Thomas and his friends never missed a beat! My daughter was so excited to see Thomas and his friends move around without her needing to switch the cargo from each of them by hand! Compared to the classic Big Loader set, this one is such a great upgrade! It is so neat seeing my daughter fall in love with a toy that is so similar to what I played with as a child! We played with this set for several hours before taking it down. I really love how easy this set is to disassemble and store for later. I have a feeling that this Thomas and Friends Big Loader Train Set is going to be a huge hit among other Thomas fans!
