Hape Mighty Mountain Mine
Model Number: 493668
Drive your train from the surface of a mighty mountain into the busy mine operating deep inside! This multi-level play-set provides the ultimate wooden-railway experience and includes a waterfall tunnel, an obstacle bridge, a crane, a conveyor belt and a repair station!
1. Start from the top of the mountain. Use the crane to load the train with supplies and follow the spiral track lower and lower into the mine.
2. On the way down, pass through the waterfall tunnel. By removing the tunnel wall and turning it upside down, you can set the magic liquid inside in motion.
3. Navigate your way past the different hazards and features. Cross the obstacle bridge and the rope bridge.
4. Ring the warning bell and pay a visit to the repair station.
5. Use the conveyor belt to transfer ore from the bottom of the mine to the third level. Then load into your train and take it to the surface.
The Hape Mighty Mountain Mine is a magnificently designed resource promoting the development and understanding of the curriculum areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM). Children have the ability to engage with scientific processes such as experimenting and problem solving as they use trial and error to explore the ways in which elements such as the crane, conveyor belt and waterfall operate. During these processes children are also developing fine motor strength and dexterity as they rotate, connect, grip, grab and turn the intricate pieces of the resource.
Additionally, The Hape Mighty Mountain Mine is an educational resource that holistically considers engineering and design. The ornately painted design featured at every level provides vibrancy, detail and inspiration for further play opportunities. The Hape trains are designed with reality in mind, easily allowing children to transfer what they have learnt in real world settings using identification techniques such as pattern spotting, to assist with the development of knowledge and understanding.
Engineering elements are evident in the way in which children will begin to design and implement a strategy to construct their track. This use of imagination and hypothesising as they design will organically produce the potential to develop shape recognition, communicate about quantities, and engage with spatial relations.
Most importantly, The Hape Mighty Mountain Mine is fun! With something new and different at every turn, the sinuous journey the train takes down the mountain provides sensory stimulation with sounds, textures and colours a continual encounter.
