DOES NOT WORK WITH RAYOVAC BATTERIES Oct. 26 2011
By Sunny1122 - Published on Amazon.com
Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
I bought this for my 4 year olds birthday. He was so excited, but it didnt work. He still tried to play with cranky until I returned it for a new one. The new one didnt work. I called Fischer Price and they informed me that the toy will not work with Rayovac batteries. Cranky is now working with duracell batteries. Just thought everyone should know so their children would not be disappointed with a broken Cranky

Clever set from Day of the Diesels Oct. 1 2011
By Talvi - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
We spent a week in Cape Cod and my 3 1/2 year old watched Day of the Diesels several times over the week. So when we came home to find this Cranky and Flynn playset had arrived from Amazon, he was ecstatic. The DVD actually has the promo for this set on it.

I LOVE...

- Remote controlled Cranky! Huge (3/4 of the height of my son), smack-talking, 360 rotating, with dual action hook (picks things up with the hook or with the magnet in the hook). Plus he's very stable. When played with separately, my son has spent hours crashing Cranky around. His arm doesn't move while hoisting (though it can be raised or lowered), rather the hook lowers and raises on thick string. I gave this 4 stars as sometimes the hook doesn't lower correctly, with a little tug on the hook it unspools. (UPDATE: changing to 5 stars...the problem with the hook has gone away after a few weeks!)
- The crate that Flynn is delivered in (blue) has some great options. Put it on a length of straight track to be a trestle bridge. Move the button on the side and it stops Thomas in the crate. My son can then close the doors and lock him in and hook him onto Cranky. Note that if the crate is on the ground, the doors will stay open as there is a piece that depresses on the bottom to release the door lock.
- Flynn! I listen to my son reenacting things from Day of the Diesels and then making up new adventures. He talks as he plays, saying things like, "Flynn is a hero, he's going to put out the fire!" and "Put me down, creaky Cranky!" My son plays with him by pushing or by turning him on (Flynn is motorized).
- "Sound off" switch. Even moving the hook up and down makes noise unless you flip this switch. It is nice to quiet things down a bit.
- Cranky auto shut off (shuts off after 20 mins of no use). There's a lot of batteries you have to use and I love any way that saves from having to recharge all the time.
- The button that makes Cranky talk also resets Cranky to face the oval and puts his hook right over the loading area. You can cancel the reset by pushing a directional button.

I was worried that the small round track would make him lose interest quickly, but it didn't. He leads Flynn + car round and round (mostly hand pushing the trains rather than turning them on). He brings Thomas and his car from the Zip, Zoom, and Logging Adventure set (from Misty Island Rescue, complete with zipline) to race with Flynn. He has Cranky "capture" Thomas and lift him up, then Flynn has to save him. Then he'll detach Cranky and take him upstairs or outside to find things that Cranky can hook and lift. He loves laying on my bed with Cranky and enacting Cranky crashing down (there is an old episode where Cranky isn't nice to the little engines, falls over in a storm, and they save him). He turns Flynn on and sends him chugging around the house (we've had move the couch and other furniture a time or three to save Flynn).

I was also worried he wouldn't be able to figure out the controller. But he was a pro after only a few minutes! see video)

My son has tried several cranes and has been so disappointed. The Plan Toy wood crane's claw is too loose so it doesn't pick things up. The crane on his Mickey rescue vehicle deploys but doesn't hook on very well, and the claw from his Toy Story III playset is next to useless. Therefore I am thrilled that I have finally given him a crane that picks things up!

Cranky Rocks Aug. 8 2011

Probably the coolest Thomas Trackmaster set to date. As soon as I saw it, I had to buy it for my son. He loves anything and everything Thomas, and this was Christmas in July for him. I find myself playing with it as much as him.

A great Trackmaster toy but quality control could have been better Oct. 26 2011
By eau - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
My kid loves Thomas the Train and when we saw this toy at Amazon, we had to order it. It arrived in a big box and we quickly assembled it. It required a Phillips screwdriver to tighten the crank to its base with the given 4 screws. It also needed 5 AA and 3 AAA fresh batteries to operate. It took about 15 minutes to get everything set up and ready.

The first problem we got was that the fire truck "Flynn" didn't work at all. We put in another fresh battery and it still didn't work. It was dead on arrival. On the other hand, the crank worked great with the remote. The only issue was that the motor was quite noisy and it could occasionally make a squeak when it rotated. It was probably due to friction between plastics at certain points.

The cable on the crank has a safety disconnect which will break off if it's pulled hard enough. The crank has a few positions that you can manually lock it in place vertically. The remote controls the rotation and the cable up/down. The crate, in which you place Flynn with its switch turned on, is designed to open up automatically and let Flynn go when it's lowered on the track by the crank. Since the fire truck in my package didn't work, I just had to replace it with Thomas from another Trackmaster set.

About time! June 16 2011

I glad to see Fisher Price come up with a product of this caliber for the Trackmaster line. The Trackmaster line of Thomas trains deserves to be realistic and fun as possible. The old Cranky was okay, but inconsistent in size in relation to the other trackmaster trains. The fact that he moves, talks, and lifts is simply fantastic! This set adds to our already larger investment and helps to give our trackmaster line of toys more playing longevity. My son loves this toy Cranky as much as he loves watching him in the show. I highly recommend this fun, durable, and well-thought out toy to any Thomas fan at any age! Bring on "Day of the Diesels!"
