If you are regular reader you may know that Blake who is 20 months is obsessed with trains.
We have quite a few train books and a train set that he loves and now we have added a new toy to his collection the My first Thomas all around Sodor.
The Thomas set is a good size and the track is very easy to put together.The set even comes with a motorised Thomas train and cargo set. It comes with instructions but i found it simple to put it together by looking at the box as to where each piece of the track goes. Blake was very excited when he saw the set and was very eager to play with it so I let him play with Thomas whilst I put the track together.
There are 7 pieces of track which clip together which are in different colors. Blake has a train set which he already loves but this is different in the sense of you press the color- coordinated buttons and Thomas automatically knows where to go. Thomas is brought to life with his eyes and mouth magically moving. By pressing the yellow button to head to Tidmouth Sheds Thomas can interact with Percy, James, Gordon, and Sir Topham Hatt. By pressing the green button Thomas will chuff over to chat with Cranky the Crane at Brendam Docks, and manually load and unload the cargo.
The set is great for little people the only fault I can think of is that I found that it sometimes derails when going round the shake shake bridge. Other than that Blake loves it and will happily sit there watching Thomas going round the track and getting us to push the buttons on Thomas to take him to the the different areas of the track.
The Fisher-Price Thomas and Friends, all around sodor set retails at £39.99.
It is a great fun toy for little Thomas fans.
*I was sent the Thomas and Friends all around sodor for this review although all opinions are of my own.
