We’ve always been fans of Thomas the Tank Engine – but since becoming Drayton Manor Ambassadors and visiting the No. 1 steam machine himself a few times now, he’s taken over in our house completely. Usually the boys are infatuated with the little battery operated trains trundling around the tracks in our home – but this time, Hero got to play with a Thomas toy of his very own, the Rolling Melodies Thomas.
It’s chunky, durable, and so sweet. A perfect toddler toy for around the house – geared towards little ones 18 months and upwards. Rolling, spinning and pressing parts of Thomas trigger sounds, melodies and the Thomas theme tune for your little one’s delight.
With five activation points [which take me by surprise often, especially when I’m trying to tidy the toys away quietly last thing at night] and beautiful melodies, it’s a far cry from the loud and piercing toys that the boys usually love to play with, and Hero is besotted with him, carrying him by the steam and spinning him about.
He’s arrived just in time for us to watch the new Thomas and Friends adventure, “The Great Race” which airs on May 22nd – and you too can join #TeamThomas and truly celebrate friendship, determination, and teamwork as we all join together to fuel Thomas on his virtual journey to the Great Race! Take part in weekly activities to endorse those values – and hopefully win some prizes along the way by sharing anecdotes and photographs on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram with the #TeamThoms hashtag. You can find out more on the Thomas and Friends Facebook page.
