Product Description

Amazon.com

This miniature water tower is a simple, clever toy that is fun for any age. Attached to a small platform and piece of track, it fits neatly into the Thomas the Train layout that your child has already designed. A lever action pump "empties" and "fills" the see-through tower, so your child will have a real sense of filling up the engine.

Based on the award-winning Shining Time Station television series, the Thomas the Tank Engine train system fulfills all of a child's train-set dreams. Each 2-inch-high, wooden vehicle has black plastic wheels and a different name, character, and face, and there are magnetic bumpers at the ends for easy link-up. Your child will delight in making the pieces interact during imaginary play and will learn social skills playing train with friends. Designed to keep pace with your child's development, this toy encourages the use of new motor and cognitive skills. Other track pieces and accessories are available. --Sandy Hirsch

My two year old loves this toy. It is his favorite part of our wooden train set. Every time he takes the train around the track, he has to stop and get some water. I was a little disappointed in how little the water level appears to change from empty to full, but it doesn't seem to bother him.

I bought this genuine "Thomas" piece to go along with the generic wooden railway system Santa was bringing my 2 year old daughter for Christmas this year. I had watched her play with a train set in the play area at the toy store, and I noticed that she and other kids spent more time playing with this water tower than with any other accessory. She has been delighted with this piece since Christmas morning, and has invented several different pretend 'scenarios' in which the engines have to fill up with water or get cleaned up at the water tower. I was looking for one or two interest-catching but relatively inexpensive add-ons for our generic train set, and the water tower fits that description perfectly. Even though we've now added a few other fun pieces, the water tower is still her favorite part of the railway!

Verified Purchase
My son had been asking for the Water Tower for quite some time, so we finally got it for him.

The plastic that encases the liquid is very, very sturdy--and it has never leaked. (Believe me...my son puts his Thomas accessories through the paces!) It's quite heavy, and fits right onto the wooden railway. By moving the black spout up and down, the blue liquid appears to empty and re-fill.

Kids seem to be fascinated with it, including my son. I definitely recommend the Water Tower as a neat accessory to any wooden railway system.

You can buy the entire figure eight set that includes this piece for less money. The toy itself may be fine, but these sellers are price gouging. Check the figure eight set with the water tower and see if it's cheaper.

We have a LOT of water towers in our city and my son is just fascinated with them. So, I bought this water tower after he refused to stop playing with it at The Anderson's General store. What a great purchase this is! I personally love watching the pretend water going up and down with the movement of the spout. "Water tower" as my little one calls it, goes everywhere with us. To church, to grandma's, grocery store, you name it, it's his favorite train piece. Why, I have no idea but I do know that he, along with every other child I've seen with it, absolutely adores this tower.

I bought this after my two and a half year old son played with it in a store that had it on display. he loved playing with it and he pretends to be giving the trains a bath. I highly recommend it to add to any thomas set. The best part about these pieces is the lifetime warrenty, and they actually stand by it. I have already needed a couple of pieces replaced and they did it very quickly. The trains and accessories are very good quality and are very durable!

This is a nice looking accessory, appears to be well built, and is easy to work into a layout (especially a smaller table layout).

Moving the spout up & down, & seeing the water move up & down with it is nice "interactive" touch (simple, but just right for a 2 or 3 year old).

I've knocked off 1 star just because the water doesn't always "go down" as much as it should when the spout is moved down, and it doesn't seem to get as much attention as some of the other accessories on our train table (although this is probably just the personal preference of my 2 1/2 year old right now).

The water tower makes a fine addition to any Thomas set up. The "water level" in the tower raises and lowers each time the spigot is moved. My son recently received this for a birthday present, and he enjoys pretending to give his engines drinks of water from the tower. It is durable for hours of play. The water tower or any other Thomas building or accessory make fine additions to the tracks.
