What boy doesn’t love trains, especially when you are growing up during an amazing time in history? Back in 1869, the “Golden Spike” between the Union Pacific and Central Pacific signaled the birth of the world full of power. A few years later, Joshua Lionel Cowen was born and grew up loving trains and fascinated with how they work, At only 23 years of age, he founded Lionel to give boys of all ages trains that would last forever.


Life of a Southern Mom recently had the opportunity to check out Lionel Mega Tracks, which is suppose to be one of the top toys for 2016. My boys are huge train enthusiasts. They can tell you everything about a train, from the engine to the caboose and everything in between. For the Mega Tracks, you will first need to get the master set, and from there you can add on the Twisted Tower and Tornado Mountain stunt packs and Mega Tracks Vehicle Shell Packs Rail Racer and Stealth Speeder that includes two interchangeable engine shells. With the flexible rail system and TwisTrack, kids can customize your own unique track. 


The utilizing new clamps and construction system lets kids build anywhere, attach it to furniture to create one of a kind race tracks. If you can image it, you can build it! In the package you will receive a Mega Tracks powered R/C chassis, Mega Tracks changeable vehicle body, R/C controller, and everything needed to make your track. Once the tracks are built, use the handheld RC controller to send the Mega Tracks vehicle soaring into high-speed action through all the twists and turns for mega action, stunts, and crashes.


My Thoughts: This Mega Track Master Set is awesome. The boys have so much fun racing through the tracks and creating loops and stunts. They love taking the tracks apart to build something totally new. You can clip the track to a table or board to create cool turns. The RC controller tracks vehicles are the fastest I’ve ever seen. We can’t get over how quick it is as it races along the tracks. The 20 feet of TwisTrack lets the boys create some serious turns and stunts. If you have a child who loves track sets this set is a must have for them. It creates endless hours of play time and they can never grow bored because of the possibilities in creating new tracks.

Price: Lionel Mega Tracks Master Set is $99.99 with Expansion Packs starting at $19.99. You can purchase on Amazon Toys “R” Us,
