4/20/12: TOMY Dinosaur Train Arctic Adventure Motorized Train Set Review

What a brilliant idea when they came up with a show to combine two things little boys love - Dinosaurs and Trains!  My son loves them both.  TOMY has some great toys to go along with the show including the  Dinosaur Train Arctic Adventure Motorized Train Set. 
The engine requires 2 AAA batteries and you start and stop the train by pushing on the orange smokestack. The set also comes with three collectible dinosaurs Mr. Conductor, Tiny Pteranodon and Travis Troodon. The plastic figures have a small hole on the bottom of their feet that press in to a peg on the train cars.  Evan had a little difficulty with them at first but then figured it out.
 I met TOMY and got to see their cool new products at Toy Fair and I am happy I can share this one with you.  Here it is in action.
 There is a little bridge piece that is made of cardboard.  At first it worked OK but then it kept falling over so Evan took it off.
 Playing with the Dinos.
Here is some video of him with the train in action.
 Evan decided his Angry Birds should go for a ride so here they are.
As Evan would say - Angry Birds are sold separately.
 Here it is in the package:
And here are the details from TOMY on the set:
Based on the hit Emmy®-nominated PBS KIDS series Dinosaur Train, TOMY has developed an extensive line of original Dinosaur Train toys under the Company’s licensing agreement with The Jim Henson Company. All aboard for Arctic adventures! This motorized train set teaches kids that dinosaurs had just as much fun playing out in the snow as they do frolicking in the forest. This set comes with three collectible figures, two Arctic cardboard destination tunnels, an all-new snow covered Pteranodon Station, and over eight feet of track! Ages: 3 and up. MSRP: $24.99–$29.99
