Product Feature: All Around Chuggington Interactive Railway Set

Recognized as one of the top 20 Hot Toys for this holiday season by The Toy Insider, the All Around Chuggington Interactive Railway Set by Learning Curve (acquired by TOMY International earlier this year) is sure to be a hit for any little engineer.

The All Around Chuggington Set includes 3 interactive train stops (Roundhouse, Tower Platform, Loading Yard), Wilson, Vee, a cargo car with 6 pieces of cargo, and easy-to-connect tracks with other accessories (about 60 pieces altogether).  If combined with other Chuggington Interactive products, the All Around Set has the potential to bring you over 250 sounds and phrases thanks to the SmartTalk technology that brings your favorite Chuggers to life.  The more pieces you add, the more you’ll be able to enhance your Chuggington play experience.  As with the Chuggington Interactive Railway Wash & Fuel Set, I like the fact that the tracks are a little bit wider than some of the other train sets on the market.  This allows you to manually run most other types of trains on these tracks.  The Interactive engines are also larger than the Die-Cast ones, which make them great for the smaller hands to play with (and harder to lose!)  Though the instruction booklet illustrates how to piece together the tracks (I like how the tracks are individually coded so there’s no mistaking which track goes where), the younger kids may need a little bit of help putting it all together (considering that this set is geared for children ages 3 and up).  Although included, this set does require 11 AA batteries - so be sure to utilize the on/off buttons when you do not need the interactive feature of the toy.  The All Around Chuggington Set retails for $79.99 and can be found at Toys R Us and other various retailers.
