The Big Cable Car Kit offers lots of experimental fun, but if you wish to extend the play experience try the Winch/Station as an add-on item.
The Winch collects the pulling string from one cable car. A clip on the cog makes it possible to lock the cable car in any position along its route.
The Winch, which is for one cable car, can easily be converted to a Station that will allow two cable cars to run a Shuttle Service. The weight of one car going downhill pulls the other car up! If you want to use the Station you will need to have two cable cars.
Assembly from 10 years, play from 6 years.
What does the Big Cable Car Winch/Station do?
There are two parts to this kit, firstly the winch and secondly the station. The Winch is fixed to the higher point of the cable car. You will need to be at the higher point to be able to turn the winch handle. The Cable Car can now be cranked up and stopped and held in position anywhere along the cable. The Winch is ideal for use up in a tree house. Adding the Winch at a later date will allow children to experience a whole new perspective on their play with the cable car kit!
The Station is used with two cable cars and it allows them to pass by each other. Essentially it allows for shuttle traffic- as one cable car goes down with its load, the other cable car will travel up!
