Two Fun Gift Ideas for the Thomas & Friends Fan
To say that I have a little Thomas & Friends fan would be an understatement. My three year old son LOVES trains and I am pretty sure Thomas might just be his favorite! In fact we even make the special trip to visit Thomas Land at Edaville USA so that he can actually take a train ride on Thomas himself, and visit the Island of Sodor.
You bet this little guy had Thomas & Friends all over his Christmas list. He wanted “TRAINS” and lots of them. Since I am such a procrastinator when it comes to gift buying, things actually worked out well for me and little B. this year. The very same Thomas & Friends toy and Blu-Ray combo pack. I was contemplating on buying him was offered as a feature on our site!
Just look at this Fisher Price Thomas & Friends™ TrackMaster™ Shipwreck Rails Set & Thomas & Friends: Sodor’s Legend of the Lost Treasure Blu-Ray combo pack. I couldn’t even hide this package from my son if I wanted to since he helped UPS get it in the door. Not sure if he has kiddie toy radar or what, but he knew there was a toy for him in that box! Once we opened it, I had no choice but to assemble his new Fisher Price Thomas & Friends™ Trackmaster Shipwreck Rails Set.
This train toy is available at Walmart and retails for $59.99 (ages 3+). This toy took us 10 minutes to set up and required only a screw driver to add the two AAA batteries to the actual Thomas Train. After you set up the really large track, the train is self motorized and rides along the track and through the obstacles. My son is simply amazed by the toy and has been having hours of fun!
- It is available at Walmart and easy to find
- Made by a reliable Children’s Toy company-Fisher Price
- Very entertaining
- Easy to put together
- Requires just two AAA batteries
- Train can ride on a bare wood floor or table too
- Does not fall apart easily like some train tracks do
One thing I would like to stress is that it is most functional on a hard, wooden floor verses a carpet. The track takes up a good chunk of space but all three of my kids have been watching the train and having fun.
Even as an adult, I find this train toy very entertaining and sometimes just sit and watch it do it’s tricks as it approaches the actual ship component. You can connect this with other Trackmaster sets too, to create an even more fun and longer track system.
In addition to the Fisher Price Thomas & Friends™ Trackmaster Shipwreck Rails Set, we also received Thomas & Friends: Sodor’s Legend of the Lost Treasure Blu-Ray Combo pack. My son watches dvds nightly to fall asleep and has been enjoying this particular one. I think it would be awesome as a stocking stuffer too for little Thomas enthusiasts. Both products can be found at Walmart.
- Shiver me timbers! Surprises await Thomas and his friends as they dig up their most daring adventure yet.
- Unearthing an old pirate ship, Thomas is on the hunt for Sodor’s lost treasure. When Thomas rocks the boat with some new friends, trouble soon rushes in. Will Thomas track down the treasure in time or will Sailor John set sail with it?
- Join Thomas & Friends™ in this explosive movie adventure!
- The voice cast includes a host of big stars including Eddie Redmayne, Sir John Hurt, and Olivia Colman.
