Brio Adventure Tunnel 33481007248
The BRIO Adventure Tunnel is a fantastic accessory that will make your wooden train sets even more fun. Shaped and coloured like an Alpine tunnel, the sturdy plastic tunnel has a realistic stone-effect surface and flowers. Open at both ends under brick-effect arches, with BRIO track passing through it, the tunnel interlocks easily with other BRIO sets. But the real appeal of the tunnel only becomes apparent once the 2 x AA batteries required (not included) have been fitted in the safely concealed cavity underneath. (A screwdriver will be required to open and close this). Just push the button, or pass a BRIO train equipped with the necessary magnet through the tunnel, and one of four adventure sounds will bring the tunnel magically to life. A very loud 'toot toot' may follow or the echoing sound of a train rushing through a tunnel, or even sounds of people at work inside. The noises turn themselves off (the longest lasts for around 7-10 seconds). Children will love this feature for realistic play, but for less enthusiastic parents there is an 'off' switch. The tunnel also has a flip-up bridge across its top for use with the BRIO people (sold separately).
