Did you know that this year Thomas and Friends turn 70?
Yes Thomas is 70 years old!
That calls for a celebration!
For 70 year Thomas has invited children to join him on the Island of Sodor for magical stories where trains are powered by steam and can talk. This world was created by Reverend W. Awdry and brought to life through books, toys and television. The Island of Sodor and the characters have an ideal belief of community, friendships, good manners, helping each other and hard work. It is the mixture of this with stories that catch the attention which has meant that Thomas and Friends inspire, excite and entertain both children and adults.
Happy birthday Thomas, here is to another 70 years!
To celebrate Thomas' birthday we were sent the Thomas and Friends Take-n-Play Rattling Railss for the twins.
Once we had taken all of the pieces out of the box I was delighted to see that it was a toy that would be easily and quickly put together. There is nothing worse than finding out a toy takes a long time to put together when you have excited twins that want to play!
Once it was put together the twins couldn't wait to get playing. They love how Thomas goes up with the push of the snakes tail. Then they watch as he come out of the snakes mouth and they choo choo as he goes down the track! They have had hours of fun with the Thomas and Friends Playset. The play set can also be connected to the other Thomas and Friends tracks that are in the range. On it's own as an individual play set or as part of a bigger set it will please any Thomas fans!
To make the Thomas and Friends set into a carry along, simply fold up part of the track and use the snakes tail as a handle!
We have found this to be a great toy that the twins can play with together. With a train each that have watched and giggled as the trains go up and down, round and round!
I would thoroughly recommend the Thomas and Friends Take-n-Play Rattling Railss for any child who loves Thomas. With a retail price of £19.99 it really is worth the money for the hours of play that the twins have had and will continue to have. The toy is recommended for children aged 3 and up.
