This Place Looks Like Grand Central Station

Have you ever heard anyone say something like, “This place looks like Grand Central Station!”? I remember that phrase from when I was young – too young to really understand what it means.

The real life Grand Central Station, or Grand Central Terminal, is located at 42nd Street and Park Avenue in New York City. It is currently (and probably always will be) the largest such structure in the world.

The chief similarity between the New York Grand Central Terminal and the GeoTrax Grand Central Station, other than the fact that both service commuters with trains, seems to be the large archways of which there are many in the real station.

The GeoTrax Grand Central Station set is one of the most popular of all GeoTrax sets. The original set has almost 3 dozen pieces, not counting the several that make up the Station proper. There are many ways to layout and play with the 14 pieces of track. You get 3 minifigs – one engineer and two passengers – in this set which always make for a more enjoyable experience.

“Holy Batcave, Batman!”

I think that’s something that the Robin from the original TV series might have said to Batman upon seeing the batcave for the first time. If he never did, he should have because Batman’s Batcave is such an awesome place.

Maybe it’s also something he would have said upon seeing the GeoTrax batcave. Maybe he would have even exclaimed one of his famous “holy” lines after seeing the GeoTrax Batman minifig! Continue reading “With Batman, GeoTrax Draws Super Friends into Its World”

You may have seen the Disney Pixar movie Cars (2006) or its sequel Cars 2 (2011). If not, you may want to watch one or both of them to better understand what all the excitement is about relative to their place in the GeoTrax world.

These movies were and continue to be very popular with children and adults alike. It’s no wonder then that Fisher Price chose to craft some of the vehicles from the movies as GeoTrax remote control cars and trucks. Continue Reading

Two of the 2009 sets, Fisher Price Christmas train product IDs R8248 and R8249, were nearly identical. The third, product ID T1350, followed the “team” theme that you can find in many other sets.
