Top-Rated Thomas & Friends Toys

By on November 25, 2020 0 784 Views

For over 30 years, Thomas the Tank Engine’s adventures have been making their way into our homes, sharing lessons of friendships, teamwork and being a really useful engine. Generations later, children still enjoy learning about Thomas and his fellow locomotives on the island of Sodor. And now, they can bring the adventure into their playtime with the Fisher-Price® Thomas & Friends™ Walking Bridge train set (pictured above).

Little engineers can use this super-cool addition to Sodor to help Thomas cross the broken bridge. When Thomas, or any other motorized engine, rolls onto the bridge, it walks to the other side (Other engines sold separately and subject to availability). Kids can also use the levers to reveal trap doors that send Thomas racing under the bridge and around 8 feet of reconfigurable track. The Fisher-Price® Thomas & Friends™ Walking Bridge train set: $49.99 plus tax, available at Walmart, Amazon & Toys “R” Us. Recommend for ages 3+.

Another 2020 Top-Rated Thomas the Train toy is the Fisher-Price® Thomas & Friends® Storytime Thomas. Young conductors can steer their own exciting stories with their favourite No. 1 blue engine. This interactive, push-along toy train has three ways to play, including Music Time with fun sing-along songs, Game Time with interactive games and Story Time, which lets kids choose what happens next in a variety of stories.

Storytime Thomas also features wheel coupling rods that move like a real train, a working front lamp, and a light-up face with eyes that move. Grab his steam cloud handle to bring Thomas along on all sorts of adventures! Requires 4 AA batteries (included). The Fisher-Price® Thomas & Friends® Storytime Thomas: $49.99 plus tax, available at Toys “R” Us and Amazon. Recommend for ages 2+.
