How ridiculously expensive are the Thomas the Tank Engine train sets and accessories? It is well worth grabbing it when you find a bargain. Tesco has reduced some of these sets by half price, including this Thomas & Friends Wild Ride, down from £30 to £15.
I'm looking at a large plastic storage box of the Thomas the Tank Engine Wooden in my living room and I shudder to think how much I spent on all the stuff in there. But, the important thing is that it gets a lot of use. My son loves it, and loves setting it up and making different railway configurations. So overall, it works out for fairly good value for money.
Plus all the wooden railway's work together. So he has some items from other ranges too. Some particular favourites are wooden replicas of famous steam engines such as the Flying Scotsman, for example.
In this particular set, Thomas and his new friend Hiro can have exciting adventures together. It includes a motorised Thomas engine. The set is based on the story of Thomas and Hiro. When Thomas' trucks prove to be too heavy, his brakes fail and he goes on a wild ride! Rocketing into a forgotten siding, Thomas discovers Hiro- one of the oldest engines on the Island of Sodor.
The train set is suited to children aged from 3 years, and requires one AA battery.
