PRODUCT: Tomy Huffty's Interactive Train ( Huffty's Interactive Train

DESCRIPTION: An interactive push-along train based on the Raa Raa the Noisy Lion television series on CBeebies, with two additional carriages and removeable Huffy play figure. Features include Smartspot technology which activates character figure phrases and train sound effects. Compatible with all Raa Raa character figures in this range, and forms part of the 'Interactive Play System'. Requires 3 x LR44 batteries (included). Suitable for children aged 2 years upwards.

GOOD POINTS: Huffty's interactive Train from the Raa Raa the Noisy Lion range is a wonderfully innovative toy which forms part of Tomy's exciting 'Interactive Play System' of vehicles, play figures and playsets which all interact with each other.

The playset consists of Huffty (one of the familiar characters from the popular Raa Raa the Noisy Lion television programme), and his train which comes complete with two detachable carriages. Both figure and train are made from a sturdy plastic, with lovely attention to detail in the character features as well as in the log effect design of the train and its eight rolling wheels.

The great feature of the figure is that it contains Tomy's clever 'Smartspot' technology, meaning that when Huffty is pushed down onto the Smartspot seat on the front of the train (the only Smartspot seat on the train), your child will hear him speak, using his actual voice as heard in the programme. In addition, pushing the train along will activate the familiar train sound effects that your child will also recognise from the series.

An additional great feature is that there are other Raa Raa character figures to collect who can ride in the other carriages of the train, including Raa Raa, Crocky, Zebby, Ooo Ooo and Topsy! All figures have the Smartspot technology which will activate their own unique sounds and phrases when placed onto a Smartspot.

The toy is battery operated (with batteries included), and battery replacement is easy via the compartment on the underside of Huffty's train (a screwdriver will be required for this). There is also a useful on/off switch located here.

In our opinion, this is a really fun and interactive toy from an innovatively designed range which will instantly appeal to young Raa Raa fans, and which is also perfect for stimulating plenty of hand-eye coordination, motor skills and imaginative role play.

BAD POINTS: The toy is battery operated, however batteries are included on purchase. The other character figures which are part of this 'Interactive Play System' only come in packs of three, so your child will end up with two Huffty figures if they want to collect them all.
