Fisher Price Thomas the Tank Engine Take 'N' Play 4 Pack £8.99 @ Play.com
Each item in this assortment includes one of your favorite Thomas and Friends engines with special cargo cars. Made of durable die-cast with magnet connectors that connect either way. Perfect for Take-n-Play Portable Fold-Out Playsets and vehicles.
I don't know from the product description what sort of range of engines they have. The one in the picture on the page is Thomas & the Bees. It just says you'll get 'one' of your favourite engines, not whether they're all Thomas engines, or whether you'll get a variety of them. If you've got a Thomas fan who's really particular then this might not be worth a punt.
However, it is an excellent pack to get at this price for the present drawer. And the prices on Play.com include delivery for the UK.
The pack in the picture appears to have an engine, plus three additional carriages. But even though I know it is a good price for a Thomas toy - engines alone are usually priced around the £6 mark in this range in the shops - it still galls me. I mean, you just don't really seem to get an awful lot of toy for what you pay do you? Still, when it comes to Thomas you've got little alternatives and at least the build quality is excellent.
