This Cranky the Crane stands at a height of 28 cm, with a wooden main body and stand. Cranky's real magic comes from his fully functioning crane mechanism. The first of two separate red levers easily enable little railway engineers to rotate Cranky around 360 degrees. The second lever then lowers Cranky's hoist up and down to load and unload the cargo. The loading itself all happens courtesy of an exceptionally strong magnet, the power of which means that Cranky doesn't have to be perfectly positioned beside his cargo for your little engineer to gain job satisfaction. Naturally Cranky the Crane comes complete with his own cargo goods train with magnetic cargo.
All of this good clean pulley, lever and magnet fun does of course mean that as well as being a delightful toy, Cranky is a wonderful introduction to the world of early science and working machines.
Cranky's body detaches from the crane tower. Beware that to re-install correctly it is important that the two flat-edged grooves of crane tower and body are aligned. This is very easy to do but also easy to overlook and incorrect assembly will stop Cranky functioning properly.
A particularly good accessory to any wooden train set, Cranky the Crane combines fun, education and a lovable character to boot. Ideal for children aged 3 to 6 years old. --Victoria Mackenzie
