With the holidays just around the corner, I had no idea what to get my four-year-old son. But after some research, I found the most perfect gift for him – a Mighty Mountain Mine from Hape Toys.
What we loved about this toy was how unique it is compared to other train sets – it’s big and has several levels that tower above one another. It includes a waterfall tunnel, obstacle bridge, a moving crane, conveyor belt and even a repair station to fulfill all his imaginative needs!
How can you play with it? Well, let your imagination soar. The description listed on their website gives us a good idea on how to utilize all its levels: Start from the top of the mountain. Use the crane to load the train with supplies and follow the spiral track down into the mine. You can pass through the crystal blue waterfall tower or by removing the tunnel wall and turning it upside down, you can set the magic liquid inside in motion. Navigate your way past the different hazards and features, creating a sense of danger and responsibility to et your supplies where it needs to go while crossing the obstacle and rope bridges. Use the bell as a warning and visit the repair station to make sure your train is looking good and then use the conveyor belt to transfer ore from the bottom of the mine to the third level. Load into your train and take it to the surface.
A winner of the 2017 ToyAwards in the best preschool toy category, this mine will bring delight to any child looking to explore and pretend. Recommended for ages three and up, your son or daughter will be sure to love this season’s hottest gift.
The Mighty Mountain Line set from Hape is available online or at any major retailer – but hurry and get your hands on one quick because they’re going to sell fast.
