My grandson adores Thomas so when it was his birthday I could not resist buying him this set. He plays with it on a daily basis and adores it!
It is made by Mega Bloks and is just perfect for a thomas mad little boy!
What I didn't realise is that Mega Bloks are more than just building blocks, they have lots of different sets which have characters. I Had never seen them like this before but the Thomas one really caught my eye and I am so glad it did!
These mega bloks are slightly smaller than the ones I have seen previously. They are more akin to Duplo, in fact some of our Duplo has been mixed up with it and they do slot together so it's not a problem.
In the set you get various items which a child can use to create a little land for Thomas. This includes track that you connect together and hold in place using a little block. The Thomas character that comes with it fits in the tracks perfect. Thomas himself is made up of blocks, I didn't even notice this at first until my grandson pulled it apart! He now spends most of his time putting it apart and putting it back together again!
There are also blocks that you can build to make a tunnel and some trees and buildings and things. It is only limited but because we have Duplo too we tend to play with that with it so we can make the land of Thomas even more exciting.
The pieces are easy to put together, my grandson has just turned two but is able to put them together quite easily without help.
It is all made from plastic and so is easy to wipe clean and is child friendly.
This cost me £10 and it was the best £10 spent because it is played with all the time. As soon as my little grandson arrives he points to the box and wants to play with it right away. It's great as he likes building with blocks but also loves Thomas so it's just perfect for him. Brilliant.
Build and rebuild the track however you want, guiding Thomas through Maron Station and over the bridge as he tries his hand at transporting a very troublesome coal truck. Load up on either coal by the hopper or logs via the chute, then help Thomas transport his goods to their destination.
