This set is overall a really good value. The board books are on the smaller side (not sure of the exact dimensions, but they are the same size as the other Dr. Suess board books if you have seen those)--I think they the perfect size for a toddler to hold and flip through. The board books are great quality in both physical materials/design/sturdiness and writing (and the case is absolutely adorable) so it is worth checking out. But if money is tight just buy a used copy of Blue Train, Green Train.
These four books are sturdy and come in a small box. These are 'board books' and can stand up to the most destructive toddler whims. My daughters enjoy them somewhat, even though they are very brief.
We really only like one of the books (Green Train Blue Train) a lot, the others leave a lot to be desired in terms of rhyming and relevance to the Thomas and friends story line. Uninspired, would be a good descriptor.
I was expecting some the original childrens' stories from the creator of Thomas and Friends from the description of the product. Instead, these are recent efforts, and don't have much charm to them at all. They don't seem to have any particular lesson or message to them at all.
If your kids are Thomas freaks, and they aren't picky - pick up these books at a discount. Otherwise, you probably would be better off buying other serialized Thomas books instead.
1.Go, Train, Go!
3.A crack in the track
4. Blue train, Green train. I will say personally i like Blue train, Green train more than the other 3 books as the rhymes are a lot better in that particular book & i like how that story is wrote. My son likes all of them, but always chooses to read Stop, Train, Stop first. Each book does have some rhymes thrown in, but Blue train, Green train has more that are better and go very well together.
I will say when i opened the box they were shipped in and seen the size of the My Red Railway Book Box i was a tad disappointed ! I thought it was going to be a bigger storage box with bigger books. As i examined them i grew to like how small they were because they are a great size for my 3 year old and also they are a lot easier to lay in bed & read at night since they aren't huge and heavy. Each book is very close to 6" in length & almost 4.5" in width. They are boardbooks so kiddos won't be able to rip the cover or pages. The boardbooks are very sturdy and will hold up a lot longer than paperback books, especially with kids. On the back of the box it says it is listed to sell for $14.99 in the US & $20.99 in Canada so the $7.62 this set sells for on here and that i paid for it is quite a steal. I have seen it online other places for a lot more than $7 so i am happy i bought i off of here.

The books were all written in about 6 minutes. The illustrations are the least interesting I have ever seen. My son looked through each one once and never picked them up again. Read morePublished 14 days ago by realitycheck8375
