Load 'N' Go Thomas £5.99 @ Play

4 June 2010

thomas1 "Peeep Peeeeeeep! Happy Friday everyone!" says Thomas

Ok so Thomas didn't wish you a happy Friday, but I did - Happy Friday everyone! - and it will be a GREAT Friday for any of our Thomas mad PlayPennies youngsters if their lovely parents buy this for them (that's you by the way *grin*).

I wonder if Thomas the Tank Engine's popularity will EVER fade...?  Did you know that the Rev W Awdry first told his three-year-old son, Christopher, a story about steam engines that could talk way back in 1942?  That effectively makes Thomas 68 years old...I think he's probably here to stay, don't you!

This Load n Go Thomas looks fab.  It's nice and simple and if I know kids aged 18 months or more (which I do)  it will provide hours of entertainment, even though to us grown-ups it doesn't appear to really do very much.

The adventure is in the product blurb and it did make me chuckle, just think of all the rip-roaring adventures they're going to have driving across your lounge carpet!  But as I said, if you're around 18 months this is going to be awesome.

It's another half-price bargain from Play, being reduced from £11.99 down to £5.99!
