This engine wash has SO many cute details! One side of the wash facility has a big "Sodor ENGINE Wash" sign, underneath which is an open "window" through which you see overflowing bubbles and can watch Percy move through. When you position the usually bright green #6 Percy's dirt-speckled front (he's included!) to where he's touching the yellow washing mechanism underneath the "ENTRANCE" sign, then press down firmly on the top button, the washers incrementally move Percy through until he pops out at the other end (marked with "EXIT" inside an arrow) through several hanging strips! The track itself is a LARGE figure 8 and features a little bridge, with two different places to connect the set up to other playsets. (The only disappointment was that it was supposed to come with a tethered brush, but it could be that Grandpa just accidentally tossed it out with the packaging.) This neat set was featured on the TnP 2011 Collector Checklistand we paid $22.99 for our grandson's. (Update: Looks like we overpaid, since Fisher-Price's summer 2013 MSRP is $20.) And just so you're aware, Take-n-Play products are not compatible with wooden tracks.
MARCH 2015 UPDATE: Fisher-Price includes a "Collector Checklist" with some (not all) Take-n-Play items each year, but it's never been comprehensive and now only serves as a sales pitch for the latest stuff. Fisher-Price took over the Thomas diecast line from Learning Curve's "Take-Along" in 2010, renaming it "Take-n-Play", and since that time there have been 26 playsets introduced that I've come to categorize as "basic" sets in the $15-$20 range. The beauty of these smaller sets was that our grandson could choose one to easily disconnect from the others, fold up and take with us on excursions. They're definitely the simplest to "TAKE N PLAY" with! In case you'd be interested in finding out what other options you have in this price range from years gone by, here's a complete list (in order of introduction): The ORIGINAL version of the Tote-a-Train (which has a play feature inside), Colin at the Wharf, Thomas at the Farm, Percy's Mail Delivery, Tidmouth Tunnel, Toby at Trotter's Farm, Sir Handel at Great Waterton, Sodor Engine Wash, Talking Diesel's Fuel & Freight Delivery, Sodor Paint Shop, Around the Rails with Thomas, Muddy Adventure, Go Go Speedy Railway, Sodor Lumber Company, Treasure Tracks, a NEW version of Tote-a-Train (which serves as a storage/transport case ONLY... NO play feature), Sodor Spiral Run, Brendam Docks, Salty's Flip & Switch Tracks, Diesel's Double Delivery, Dash's Misty Island Mission, Scrapyard Cleanup Team, Rock Mining Adventure, Reg's Christmas Surprise, Rattling Rails, Gator's Chase & Chomp. We recommend all of those PRIOR to Salty's Flip & Switch Tracks, feeling the rest are pretty flimsy and definitely not worth their MSRPs (with one exception... Go Go Speedy Railway was the pits!)
10/25/16 update: I'm going back and adding this update to each of my Take-n-Play reviews, since it's important information for any parents/grandparents out there with a young Thomas & Friends enthusiast who holds a special place in their heart, and is considering beginning a collection for them. I just found out the TnP line of diecast trains/vehicles/rolling stock with magnetic connectors is being REPLACED by Fisher-Price in 2017 with a diecast line called "Thomas & Friends Adventures", which will be TnP models modified with PLASTIC HOOK & LOOP COUPLERS. Obviously, your youngster will not be able to connect the 2014-2016 TnP models (with their flat, round 1-way magnetic connectors), nor the 2010-2014 TnP models - or Learning Curve's compatible 2002-2010 Take Along models - with their protruding 2-way magnetic connectors - with the new types of couplers as of next year.
2/17/17 Update: Fisher-Price must've received a slew of complaints from Take-n-Play owners, because they've now developed magnetic clip engine connectors (to clip onto the magnetic trains - but ONLY those with the flat round 1-way magnets... they don't want to invite comparisons between the high quality of the older trains with protruding 2-way magnets! - that have a plastic hook & loop coupler to be able to connect to the new Adventures engines), along with track adapter pieces (Take-n-Play track pieces/sets have only 1 male or female part at the end to connect up to other track/sets, while the new Adventures tracks/sets have both one male & 1 female part on EACH end), available by directly contacting F-P.
It's hard for my 4 year old daughter and even for my 6 and 9 year old nieces to get the train through the engine wash by pushing the button that propels the spinners to push it through. They got frustrated and just hit it quickly and repeatedly. It takes 3 solid, smooth pushes to get the train through, but they didn't have the patience for it. So they just pushed it through themselves, no big deal to them.
The wash station does not hold on to the track well at all. Gently carrying it, the track will fall. Other sets we have are much higher quality and never fall apart while carrying them. This is a huge disappointment.
The ends of the "8" track tend to "break" apart more than usual during play, so my daughter is constantly reattaching them. She doesn't seem to mind, but if your child gets annoyed by things easily, don't buy this one.
She still plays with it and likes that she can "wash" the trains. So I'll give it 3 stars. It's not one I'd feel comfortable taking too many places since it's nowhere near as sturdy as the others we have.
