Having 4 boys in my house means that certain characters have been around since my first one started playing with toys. Thomas & Friends have been a longstanding favourite in this house from my very first son, who is now 11 to my 4-year-old (although I am sure that my 1-year-old will love him just as much once he starts really playing with toys). Last year all my son asked for was Thomas the Train and we ended getting him several of the trains for Christmas.
Not only does he love Thomas but I love that Thomas helps to inspire his imagination, teach him important life lessons and helps him to understand his emotions. I know that Thomas was one of the first shows that helped my oldest son learn how to express his anger and sadness when he was only about 4. I can’t tell you how often my younger boys come running when they hear the familiar tune.
This year he is still absolutely in love with Thomas and has asked for some more playsets for Christmas and I can’t think of a better set to get him than the Thomas & Friends™ TrackMaster™ Scrapyard Escape Set available now. It is super easy to put together, is fully expandable with connectable track packs and train sets for hours of creative play.
The engines are battery-operated and my son loves to watch them go around the track with all of the fun action-packed pieces that make this Scrapyard Escape fun.
I love that the TrackMaster sets and expansion packs (which are sold separately) can all be connected to make up some really great patterns and pretty much any design these boys can think up. This particular set includes a motorized Thomas and cargo car, two cargo pieces and a full track layout with cable bridge crossing, steelworks shack, and cargo holder.
I know that my son will spend hours watching Thomas scoot around on this track while picking up the pieces and I am also sure that Thomas won’t be the only train going around when he also has Percy, Gordon, and James who I know will be joining in all the fun. I should note that the motorized train in this set requires 2 AAA batteries and you can find the sets at Walmart, Toys “R” Us, and Amazon. Need the perfect gift for your toddler or preschooler? Look no further than the Thomas & Friends™ TrackMaster™ Scrapyard Escape Set.
