For my sons third birthday he was given numerous presents from friends and family. Some years later many of these have long since broken or lay in a cupboard. However a few remain in tact, one of these being a Thomas wheelie case. Although he is now too old to use the case it has given many hours of entertainment and is still in good condition and waiting to be passed to a friend's child when he is old enough!
The case is made of strong fabric and has two small plastic wheels. There is a retractable handle that is just the right height for a small person to pull the case along. The case zips open and has one compartment. There is also a looped handle at the top of the case to allow it to be lifted. The front of the case has a very brightly coloured Thomas and will delight any young Thomas fan as my son was.
This is a case designed for young children so as you would expect it is quite small, measuring 40 x28x 11 cm. It is quite light and can easily be lifted by an adult. The cases small size makes it an ideal choice to take on an aircraft as hand baggage. My son found this case really easy to wheel along, meaning I didn't end up having to carry it!
My son used to love to fill this case with his toy cars and wheel them around the house. He also enjoyed wheeling his case to town with me! I used to place a few small items of shopping it the case for him and this used to help make shopping trips more enjoyable for us both. The case can be a bit awkward to open for small hands as the zip is a bit stiff. However as he got older my son found this easier to manage.
The case is easy to keep clean using a damp cloth and apart from a few scuffs, still looks pretty good considering the use it's had! In fact the entire case has stood the test of time really well with everything still in good working order, including the handle, wheels and zip. I am not sure how much was paid for the case as it was a present. However I see that it is available on line for around £15.
If you have a young Thomas fan then I think this would make an excellent present. Although it is not that cheap it is well made and ours was certainly well used! I think this case would suit a child from about aged 3.It is difficult to give an upper age limit as children vary so much in their development.
