smartmax magnetic tommy train set
For the uninitiated SmartMax is a fun magnetic discovery and construction toy designed in Belgium.
The tommy train set is a perfect sampler and includes all you need to build your very own train with one, two or no extra wagons! Load and race or assemble another train. Make speedy constructions with the included pull-back mechanism! All can be combined with all existing Smartmax sets. Together with the bars and metal balls, you can create an endless range of possibilities.
Our favourite thing about SmartMax is that they are a toy your little one will continue to play with year after year.
The SmartMax range includes basic sets with plenty of high-quality pieces to get you started, as well as vehicles and themed sets.
SmartMax has even won numerous international awards, including ‘Toy of the Year’ in the Netherlands.
SmartMax magnets have a magnetic north and south pole. The cold colors, green, blue, purple and white have their north poles directed outwards. The warm colors, red, orange, yellow and pink have their south poles directed outwards.
Unlike poles attract, like poles repel. All bars with a cold color can be connected to all bars with a warm color. All other combinations repel.
SmartMax balls are attracted by all bars, regardless of their color. More than 20 bars can be connected to one ball.
The magnets of the long bars are stronger than those of the short bars. Long bars can lift more weight or make stronger connections.
Don't worry about little ones playing with SmartMax as the parts are all bigger than 3cm.
SmartMax is made from high quality materials, which make the parts really strong.
SmartMax parts are glued together and ultrasonicly welded for final assembly. This makes it impossible for toddlers to tear them apart, no matter how determined!
