"For 4 years, I have been working on many other toy trains - but none as exciting as the new Chuggington Die-Cast track system which really lets you build some crazy layouts.
Toys are a huge part of a child's development. When I was growing up, lots of toys I played with allowed me to creatively build worlds my favorite characters could play in. That is my mission as a designer, to give kids toys that unleash their imagination in their own unique way." ~Jason
One very exciting thing about trains in real life is when they are high off of the ground crossing a tall bridge or an elevated train over a city. Kids love to recreate this elevation with trains. With other train systems, you could never build really high and keep it stable. Other track systems would need lots of room to really get any interesting height.
This is the challenge that the new Chuggington Die-Cast track system would climb above and beyond. First, how could we build a stable system that doesn't fall over with rigorous play? Secondly, how can we keep the system simple in the amount of pieces you need? Thirdly, how could a track system elevate in a small amount of space? And lastly why Chuggington Die-Cast Trains?
The new Chuggington Die-Cast playsets feature track that is engineered for height, stability, and sturdy connections, letting you build taller than ever before. Every action-packed set can be built multiple ways and includes a track piece to connect your new sets to your other Chuggington Die-Cast sets.
These collectible Chuggington engines feature durable die-cast construction and sturdy magnetic connections.
