Description: The Little People Circus Train set has survived many years of change, from the original Little People (#991), through the Chunky Little People line (#2373), and even to the current Little People line (#72373), but the Little People Big Top Train set is a step above them all. Each car has a special circus activity that is sure to delight children. The train engine boiler tuns into a daredevil cannon, the car behind the engine flips out to a tramopline and has a spinning center ring that plays circus music, the caboose has an attached highwire ladder with a swinging trapeze on the end. The fun doesn't stop with the train itself, this set also comes with lots of delightful accessories, such as a unicycle, balancing beam, and Little People circus characters. Requires 3 AA-size batteries (not included). Designed for children ages 1-1/2 years and older.
