All aboard the next stop along the learning curve . . . kids three and up will enjoy the magical adventures of the ever-popular Thomas and Friends Wooden Railway System. Featuring characters from the Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends
video series and the Thomas and the Magic Railroad
feature film now out on video, this system allows children to re-enact their favorite Thomas tales or create new adventures of their own. Besides encouraging imagination, wooden train-play helps kids develop motor and social skills. The Thomas Wooden Railway System is designed to grow along with kids' increasing skills, offering years of enjoyable play and new adventures around each and every bend.
Watch Thomas and Friends come to life as you add colorful buildings and interactive destinations to your layouts. Fun is limited only by your child's imagination...the possibilities are endless! Watch the water level rise and lower as children fill their engines with imagination and fantasy play with the Thomas Water Tower.
This miniature water tower is a simple, clever toy that is fun for any age. Attached to a small platform and piece of track, it fits neatly into the Thomas the Train layout that your child has already designed. A lever action pump "empties" and "fills" the see-through tower, so your child will have a real sense of filling up the engine.
Based on the award-winning Shining Time Station television series, the Thomas the Tank Engine train system fulfills all of a child's train-set dreams. Each 2-inch-high, wooden vehicle has black plastic wheels and a different name, character, and face, and there are magnetic bumpers at the ends for easy link-up. Your child will delight in making the pieces interact during imaginary play and will learn social skills playing train with friends. Designed to keep pace with your child's development, this toy encourages the use of new motor and cognitive skills. Other track pieces and accessories are available. --Sandy Hirsch
