What is it
Simply press go on the engine and set up the Smart Tech Action Tunnels around the track. The Engine will automatically detect each arch and do exactly what is shown. It could stop, start, go slow, turn on the lights or make a sound.
The red button on top of the engine enables you to record your own sounds. Pair the engine with the Smart Tech Sound app and you can customise the sound environment even further.
Each Action Tunnel creates a unique response from the engine, and by actively moving them around the tracks and different Action Tunnel Slots, you can program the play and change the train’s journey. Control the direction of the engine using the Change Direction and Stop Action Tunnels. Watch the engine slow down and stall after it passes through the Break Action Tunnel and then comes back to life as it leaves the Fix Action Tunnel.
Compatible with other BRIO train accessories and wooden tracks.

What our experts think
This interactive train set is a great way to get children involved in imaginative storytelling and role-play. It also teaches them about cause and effect, as they explore what each tunnel and button does and what that means for the train’s journey.
Playing with toys like this together is fantastic for helping children to develop their communication skills as they work together and build a narrative for their play. The movement of the train itself also encouraged the children to use directional language and vocabulary such as forwards, backwards, up and down.
