To say we have a lot of Thomas the Train sets would be an understatement.
Like a severe one.
Our Thomas the Train game is so strong that I recently put in custom toy benches in our playroom and included one wall entirely for Thomas tracks. And because of that, I can say that our kids were totally into testing out 2 brand new Thomas toys you should be aware of while you are finishing up your holiday shopping. Below you will find a basic review of the new Fisher-Price Thomas & Friends™ TrackMaster™ Shipwreck Rails Set as well as the Thomas & Friends DVD, Sodor’s Legend of the Lost Treasure – The Movie. If you are short on time, the smaller version is yes, pick them both up this season for your Thomas fan.
Thomas & Friends™ TrackMaster™ Shipwreck Rails Set (CDB61)
You will love: The Thomas & Friends™ TrackMaster™ Shipwreck Rails Set is a beast! Its connectable to other sets, expandable and motorized. It’s also brand new, so it makes it likely the Thomas set you may be looking for for your ever expanding collection. Normally I make my husband put together all the toys. Not because I can’t, but because they can be time-consuming and I don’t like doing it. I want to show up and play. In this case, he was out of town and so I settled in to do it myself. Surprisingly, it was easy. It took about 20 minutes, mainly because I misplaced my track and had to disassemble once. Make sure you properly position your yellow twist track in order for your train to make it from the top to the bottom and off again.
Thomas & Friends™ TrackMaster™ Shipwreck Rails Set fans will love: What isn’t there to love? This set is HUGE, making play time a lot of fun watching Thomas and other characters go around. Plus, pirates!
Phoenyx said: He is 4 and kinda a quiet guy, but by judging his nonstop play time with this set and his inability to let me take it apart to put it away, he is enjoying it.
