My son has been rather eyeing this one up. A working model is operating on a table in the toy shop we often go into. There, however, it is priced at the RRP of £21.99. Amazon has it on offer for £12.99. Delivery is free with Amazon Prime.
Tomica is a toy range brings together trains, tracks and vehicles. The range is built on two themes: Hyper City and Hyper City Rescue. If it looks familiar then the range has actually been around for a couple of decades. Previously it was known as Thomas Road and Rail. All the blue track, trains and accessories from that range will fit the Tomica one, it is the same just widened to include trains other than the Thomas ones.
Hyper City is based on a city with real life destinations that kids see everyday such as petrol stations, train stations and car parks. Whereas Hyper City Rescue is based on a futuristic "Protective Force" that keeps order within the city. The range includes vehicles, trains, accessories, destinations and fun play sets.
The Tomica Starter Rail Set is a great introduction train set. The track snaps together to create different layouts. Little ones can then watch as the train moves around the track, either motorised or pushed by hand.
Includes track layout, crossing barrier, 2-speed train and clear tunnel. Add this to other Tomica playsets and accessories.
