To some, Thomas movie may be a boring one, as all characters in the movie are not moving. The only moving things are the train's eyes, when the trains chuff away and the steam whistles. But I believe, this Sodor show still caught a lot of boy's heart. He simply love it and almost not missing all show time.
It sounds like not complete if he only get to watch from the box but not get to hold his favourite Thomas. It was quite sometimes later only I bought him the first small Thomas train. It was roll-push and leave it go one, no need battery to operate (can play longer), it was RM 29.90 bought from Toys'R'Us. He love it to bits and so excited when saw it. He can play that everyday for months and play till it broken and parts lossen (play too hard). That time thats the only Thomas toy he has. The collection only go wider since few months ago.
(Left) Push and Go train (the very first toy from mummy)
(Front) Cubes puzzle from po-po bought in Taiwan
Since bento-ing hits me, the collection for Thomas is there too. Here are the bento box, baran, sauce cases, and flag picks. Sure he adores every of that. To all his Thomas toys too, he still play every of that everyday, without failed. For the songs, he will ask me to sing Troublesome Trucks, 5 New Engines In The Shed and Boo-boo Choo-choo. He can sing along some when it plays.
I was actually win the bid from eBay on this full set of Thomas apparel and wanted to put on him on his 2nd birthday. But too bad, he has outgrown of the sandal and top when I got it. I have let go this (sold away in eBay).
He never ever get enough of Thomas, when I'm using my computer, he will sure come to me and say "train, train". So I will play him some videos and games from Thomas website, if not, he will whine and not let me to continue my work. Not long ago, he can maneuver the lappie mouse and play the Emotion Games by himself. I just need to name him the train and he will move the mouse and click on it. (The video is a bit lengthy 1:44, pls be patient..)
The most funny one is he named his Thomas as TON-CEH since 3 weeks ago. He couldn't pronounce it yet, so that is his way of saying it.
Another one, Thomas ride. This pic taken long time ago. Once he sat on it, he not ever wanted to let go willingly. All the times, I forced to pick him up. Up to now, he is only familiar with James, Percy, Emily, Salty, Molly and Gordon. I got so much more Thomas stuff in mind wanted to get for him like the meal set, movies, tumbler, learning tools and etc. Hope can get this collection soon as sales is coming.
Boy, if there were any chance in future, daddy mummy will sure give you a Thomas theme birthday party (Hopefully by the time he still favourable with Thomas).
