The first of two separate red levers easily enable little railway engineers to rotate Cranky around 360 degrees. The second lever then lowers Cranky's hoist up and down to load and unload the cargo. The loading itself all happens courtesy of an exceptionally strong magnet, the power of which means that Cranky doesn't have to be perfectly positioned beside his cargo for your little engineer to gain job satisfaction. Naturally Cranky the Crane comes complete with his own cargo goods train with magnetic cargo.

Being ever so slightly sexist, as I am a girl and a mum of two (girls), I never thought I would write a review about a train set, especially not about a crane! But ladies, gentlemen, boys and girls, this is not any crane we are talking about, this is Cranky the Crane (CC). I have a two and three quarter year old girl who adores Thomas et al and to my shame and to her pain does not have a CC. However her bestest friend in the whole world has one so hopefully that qualifies me to review him (it).
