Thomas the Train: Zip, Zoom, and Logging Adventure
The Thomas and Friends Zip, Zoom and Logging Adventure train set is a motorized train set based on the Misty Island Rescue movie starring Thomas the Tank Engine and his merry friends. Create your own adventures on the island with Thomas as he meanders around the tracks, visits the mill to split a log, zooms across the zip-line bridge, and chugs through a tree trunk tunnel. This engaging train set is intended for children three years of age and older and requires adult assembly.
Create Your Own Thomas Adventure
Thomas the Tank Engine is powered by one AA battery (not included) and pulls a cargo car along the tracks, going through the tree trunk tunnel and up and down hills. At one section of the tracks, Thomas can stop at a logging mill structure and unload his log onto a conveyor belt powered by his own spinning wheels. Once the log makes it to the top of the belt, the log is then split and can be loaded back onto Thomas' cargo car. Another fun feature of the train set is the speedy zip-line bridge. This exciting bridge consists of a platform that glides across a trackless section when Thomas and his cargo car roll onto it. As soon as it reaches the other side, Thomas and his cargo car disembark automatically and continue to amble along the tracks.

Motorized Train Set Encourages Imaginative Play
Thomas and Friends Zip, Zoom and Logging Adventure train set is based on the DVD movie Misty Island Adventure, featuring Thomas the Tank Engine. This engaging motorized train set inspires kids to use their imaginations to create new adventure scenarios for Thomas the Tank Engine as he and his cargo car move along the whimsical set of tracks. Designed to encourage active, creative play, the Thomas and Friends train set features multiple points along the tracks where kids can interact with the tracks and buildings to change Thomas' course, send him speeding along a zip-line bridge, or split a log that can be carried in his cargo car.
Although no tools are required for assembly, the complexity of the track arrangement requires adult participation. Track sections are designed to fit together, end to end, like puzzle pieces and can be configured into one of two track layouts. Each of these layouts is illustrated in the instruction pamphlet, and track sections are numbered to help make assembly faster and easier. Care should be taken to insure that the Log Mill structure is securely fastened to the tracks so that the conveyer works when Thomas' engine stops to unload his log.
