The barrels are magnetic and this simple set is actually a lot of fun and can be quite tricky for youngsters to master. That's not a bad thing though, they can line up the barrels and swing cranky round as they turn the handle to lower the magnet to make contact with the magnetic barrels. They'll no doubt cheat to start with and man-handle the magnet, but they'll master it after a while!
Combined with an existing track set, this adds something a bit different and can become something of a game itself as children take turns to try and pick up the barrels and lower them accurately to the cargo carriage.
In a nutshell: This is a lot taller than I expected and the height makes playing with the crank operated magnet more fun. This is a very sturdy item and it's far more attractive and more solid than the 'Trackmaster' version. My only qualm is that it comes with just two magnetic barrels, it would have been nice if a larger range of cargo was included - but that's only a minor complaint and this toy from the cheaper end of the Take Along Thomas range is an entertaining one which will have everyone wanting to have a go!
Excellent value for a really good product.
