Remote Control Thomas £12.72 @ ASDA Direct
All too often remote controlled things are aimed at bigger kids which is great for them but RUBBISH for youngsters - and I'm talking 18 months old youngsters here - they just don't have the fine motor skills necessary to be able to do anything else other than driving whatever it is into the walls or your ankles.
The time will come when your little Thomas engine driver will want to get off the tracks and drive wherever the whim takes him and he'll be able to do just that with this.
Big and chunky and suitable for small Thomas fans from 18 months, there are no fiddly over-sensitive joysticks to master here - just 2 buttons: one to go forwards and one to go back.
Thomas needs 5 AA batteries, delivery is free if you spend over £25 or standard delivery applies to selected stores.
Thanks to Halyhoo over at HUKD!
