Like most small boys, my son has loved watching Thomas the Tank Engine since he could focus on the television. As a family we have enjoyed many wonderful days out at Thomas Land and there has always been one room there that has held his attention for that little bit longer (and at three that is no mean feat!). The miniature Thomas railway track. He always sequels and cheers as the many tiny trains whizz around the track. So when we were offered the chance to not only try our very own Hornby Thomas the Tank Engine train set out but also give one away to a lucky reader. I jumped at the chance!
Well known for it's quality train sets, Hornby kindly sent us a Thomas the Tank Engine Train set. When it arrived my son couldn't wait to get his hands on it but as he is only three and the parts are quite delicate I waited for his Dad to come home. They then had a cracking hour bonding over the set alongside my daughter who is five. Unlike other Thomas sets he has, this one runs on electricity and he couldn't contain his glee as it whizzed round the bathroom (our biggest clear space).
Coming complete with a miniature Thomas and Annie and Clarabel Coaches it really is something special that I know will be played with for many years to come. What we liked about the train set was that it was fairly simple to put together and more importantly (when your house contains a million toys) easy to put away! As it uses power from the mains you don't need to worry about rummaging around every drawer in your house until you find some batteries. Despite the age range starting from three it's not really a toy I would leave alone with an excitable toddler. However it is something great to play with together as a family and I am sure when he is older it will become a permenant fixture in his bedroom.
There are lots of other Thomas sets in the Horby range including a fab Percy and the Mail train set. Alongside extra characters from Thomas and accessories to make your little set into a mini Sodor Station.
