My son has recently got into Thomas the Tank Engine in a big way. He's two and a half and he has got a thing about trains. It all started with visiting a train museum whilst on holiday in Norfolk where he was mesmerised by all the trains and carriages. We bought some Thomas trains for my daughter when she was little so we dug those out and it was like all his birthdays had come at once. Since the collection was quite small we decided that he could choose some extra trains to go with the ones we already had.
On a recent trip to a famous toy store we found the Thomas take 'n Play section. There we spent a little too long choosing which engine he could buy. Finally he chose Hiro and his wagon. Very happy with his purchase (which had to be opened the minute we got in the car) we came home. Hiro has now been added to the collection and is also a firm favourite and comes everywhere with us - school run, shopping, friends houses and any journeys that need the car.
Anyway, let me tell you about the product:
Hiro is made from die-cast metal. He is painted black with some gold stripes on his engine. Hiro has red wheels. He also comes with a carriage. Hiro has a magnet at the front and at the back so that you can attach other magnetic trains or carriages to him. The carriage also has a magnet on each end.
Hiro measures 5.1 x 15.2 x 14.6 cm
Despite the fact that the train is made of metal there are no sharp sides or edges that could cause harm to small hands. He is very robust and withstands other trains crashing into him!
Hiro was the first steam engine on the Island of Sodor and was known as the 'Master of the Railway.' He is one of the oldest engines on the island.
We bought Hiro for £6.99 which I know is cheaper than in most shops. We tend to go to the Entertainer for Thomas toys as they are discounted. Hiro normally sells for around the £10 mark and I do think he is worth the money.
There is not much else I can state about Hiro - he is an excellent addition to my sons collection and he enjoys playing with him. I would recommend Hiro to anyone whose children are into Thomas
