Details

?Thomas & Friends Wood toy train sets have been redesigned with kid-friendly, easy-to-build track.  The revamped track connectors fit together easily, allowing children to build their own layouts - and their own stories - by themselves.  With this unique connector design, there's no wrong way to build!  This Expansion Track Pack also comes with two track adaptors, so it's compatible with other wood track systems, including classic Thomas & Friends Wooden Railway (sold separately and subject to availability).  Kids can expand their railway layouts and their creativity by connecting this collection of curved, straight and turnout track pieces to Thomas & Friends Wood destinations and train sets (sets and destinations sold separately).  The handy turnouts let children build in two different directions, and easy-to-use knobs allow them to choose which track their toy trains take.  With six straight track pieces, six curved track pieces, four turnouts, two ramps and two adaptors, the possibilities are as limitless as a child's imagination.  Plus, for a seamless playtime experience, the redesigned Thomas & Friends Wood toy trains and track are also compatible with classic Thomas & Friends Wooden Railway trains and track.  (Track is compatible using included adaptors; Wooden Railway trains and track sold separately and subject to availability.)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing Expansion I bought this track to expand on one I bought at the same time when Toys R Us was going out of business for our son's Christmas present. The switches are plastic and cheap/not sturdy- our battery Thomas runs right off and derails no motor how much we try to get it to hold in place correctly. Even worse then this- the way the new connection is built- the edges are clipped at each connecting joint which seem to make the train derail even more often (every turn) since every joint has edge pieces missing for the wheels to go off. We will definitely NOT be buying any more track as long as this new design is in place. I will be searching for the "old" joint tracks to continue to build our collection.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as good as other wooden tracks I was excited to add this to our train track collection because of the pieces that allow you to switch the directions trains travel on the track. However, I did not realize that these tracks connect differently than traditional tracks. They do come with two adapters that allow you to connect with traditional track, which is nice. However, keeping the tracks separate from the other traditional pieces we own and building in a specific way to be able to use the adapters is a pain. They also do not fit together as seamlessly as traditional tracks. Given the choice to do it again, I would not have added these to our track collection.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Essential for having enough track to build. I actually bought two of these to go with our Figure 8 set because I wanted my son to have enough to build with. We only have track with the new connectors and I wouldn't recommend using this with the older or other brand track, it would be awkward even with the adaptors. This had plenty of track and we can build all kinds of layouts, one probably would have been enough but I found a great deal. I mostly like the new connectors. This list points for two reasons, one the price. I got it from Amazon and did not pay anything near retail. I'm not sure I would have got it at that price. The second star I took off was because the turnout pieces are plastic. I assume this is to build in the switch mechanism, but I'd much prefer they be the simpler wood turnout with no mechanism. They'd be simpler to play with, look nicer, and it would mean overall your track is mostly wood.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hours of Fun! As soon as my little guy saw the box, he couldn't hold back his excitement! This pack comes with a lot of different pieces for lots of fun, and some pieces that will connect to other types of train sets. This was very nice because we were able to use the train sets that we already have, and made an even BIGGER train track! All the pieces fit together seamlessly, and maneuver very well. My only suggestion would be to include at least one train in the pack, for some extra fun. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great set for train lovers with a few concerns Upon receiving this expansion set, I was new to the Thomas and Friends tracks. My children have several other brands of wooden train tracks and accessories and I thought this would be a great fun addition. The quality of the wood is there but my one complaint is the track itself. The wooden track does not fit other brands, only two plastic small pieces do that can be added to create a full track of various brands. I realize this was probably done on purpose to get customers to buy their particular brand, but it is hard to explain to a 3 year old why the track pieces don't all fit together. This would a be a nice gift that is quality built to last. I would still recommend this set to others, just with the knowledge it isn't universal for other brands to make large train sets and cities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality What I really loved about this is how well the track was made and how it stayed together. My son loved it because it stayed together and he didn't get frustrated playing with because the tracks came in linked. He also liked it came with two pieces that would allow the train to go in different directions. Most sets we found only have one so this allowed him to be more creative.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun track set! My sons loved playing with the Thomas & Friends™ Wood Expansion Track Pack. With the conversion pieces, they could add wooden pieces they already had and create a huge track altogether. The packaging was a little tough to open and the conversion pieces are a little small, and easier to lose which would then make the different track designs incompatible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Thomas the Train Track This is a really great pack of extended Thomas the train wooden track! The only thing you really have to be aware is that it’s really only for Thomas the Train Wooden track. It does come with a couple extenders to connect to a regular track but I would buy this separately to connect to regular wooden tracks. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
