Happy 70th Birthday Thomas The Tank Engine!

Yes you read right ! I could not believe it when Fisher Price contacted us and asked if we wanted to help celebrate Thomas The Tank Engine turning 70 this year. I remember always watching Thomas as a child but I didn’t realise he was over double my age, amazing to think he has graced children lives for that long.

I was never sure whether our kids would love Thomas, not with so many modern animated cartoons but I was wrong, his charm still appeals massively. Addison is a HUGE Thomas fan, so much so we are off to Thomas Land this year, she constantly asks to ride on Thomas (which is pretty much any train) and goes to the grandparents to watch Thomas DVDs with Grandpa, seriously whole days and even better as Grandpa can do all the voices, he is now called the Fat Controller.

So you can imagine Addy’s excitement when Fisher Price sent her the Thomas & Friends Playset – it is amazing and we have already had to look online to see what other playsets we can put on her birthday list that connect up, we are leaning towards Tidmoth Sheds at the moment.


Addison loves playing with it for hours and I must say it is quite a lot of fun and is a steal for £18 at Argos at the moment, but instead of me telling you all about it though you are best watching the Video and you can see it’s fun in action.

Told you they loved Thomas ! Deacon also got sent the Pop n Go Thomas and he loves it, as you can see in the video he is by no means gentle with toys, it has been bashed all round the house, carried out to the garden and it is doing fab, not a bit of damage, well done to Fisher Price for their build quality as always perfect for our little Deacon. I think it would be a great present for any child for their first birthday and you can currently get the Pop n Go Thomas from Argos for £17.99.

I think it can safely be said that Thomas will be a fan in our home for many more years to come with all the kids loving to ride trains, who doesn’t like saying Choo Choo, as Addison always says “I can’t sleep without my Thomas light Mummy” and her little Thomas books show just how loved they are.

If you have a Thomas fan in your house I totally recommend looking at the line of toys Fisher Price has to offer as you won’t find better in our opinion.
