For the 3-5 year old age group, the Tomica Mega Station Hypercity Set is a fun railroad set that inspires the imagination. It is made by Tomy, a familiar name in the toy business, so you know it is a quality and durable play set for the kids. Tomy has been around for over eight decades and is an endearing toy company known for its innovative, quality and safe toys.
What is the Mega Station Hypercity Set? It is a fully automated railway station complete with lights, sounds, race track, rail road, train, station, pavement, convenience store, cars and a Tomika kid. It has a downtown area, with streets, parking, shops, working stoplights and streetlights—everything your child needs to comprehend the busy working world around him. For example, by pressing down on a button near the little store, he can launch a car out into the parking area. If he pushes another near the store, the doors will open. Cars ride up the ramp and then slide down to the train crossing. There are more buttons at the intersection to control when the cars cross over the tracks and when the train can cross.
The set is easy put together and you and your child can use your imagination in creatively setting it up in different ways. The train can run manually or on full automation and several children can play together with the set to run the different areas of the community. The kids can mimic the bustling activity of a train station and other parts of the city. When the train pulls into the terminal, the cars will stop at the train crossing and wait. When the train is on the move again, the cars are on the go again. The kids can be in control of all of everything by switching the station into manual mode.
You can even add additional features to the Mega Station Set to enhance the city features, or expand the set with the other city sets from Tomica. But they aren’t necessary for creative and imaginative play. You will need to pick up 4 C batteries for the set that is not included in the package.
The Tomica Mega Station Hypercity Set is made with durable quality materials and toy safety is not an issue as the Tomica Company always provides quality and reliable toys for children. The parts and pieces of the set are colorful as well as durable. It’s no wonder that Tomica toys are passed down from sibling to sibling, and this Mega Station set is no different.
