Thomas Train toys are famous on building railway tracks and building train island. These toys are normally suitable for age 3+ to play. So far in Terry's Thomas toy collection, he only has a very few toys for under 3 years old. Everytime when we pass by Thomas toy display, he was so interested in those big set of train track, but I never get that for him simply because it is not suitable for him to play yet. Even those die-cast train model also not getting.
Now he is 3.5 years have the "license" to play the big set. Since a few shopping trips ago I've been started to check out some track sets. Last 2 weeks during Isetan sales, after looking left, right, up, down on the Thomas toys, finally I found one that he'll likes to play. It's a Thomas & Bertie Take Along "The Great Race" Set. I'm sure this is up to his taste, since he likes slide and race so much.
This set so far I don't think I saw before in other department stores that I visited. Isetan is on 30% sales on selected Thomas's toy, this set is the last piece on the shelve. It was RM119.90 before less. I top up another die-cast metal train - ROSIE for him to race with the other 2. True enough he heart this new toy very much and no one can touch or play after the whole thing setup. I love the design of it too, it is less pieces to build up and the covered bridge also work as a storage case.
There goes to this Thomas fan, it was his first piece of expansive toy.
