We're in between houses-sold the one we were in but the new one isn't ready yet. And so we're bunking up in my parents' basement, which means almost everything is packed away, toys included. So you can imagine the excitement when we got to try out Thomas & Friends™ TrackMaster™ -the kids are having a blast and can't get enough of it! They couldn't believe all the awesome sets came to us- –
This fall TrackMaster™ motorized engines have been redesigned with enhanced speed, power and performance. Friends noticed how speedy and powerful this set was – so cool to see it chug along the track. The new TrackMaster™ sets are compatible with the older versions, allowing your little engineer to continue to expand on and explore the exciting world of Thomas & Friends ™ TrackMaster™
We gathered up some friends to check out the new sets (I should have taken a group pic!) – they were excited that the sets were compatible with the old sets . We couldn't put these new sets together fast enough! They were all waiting and pressing us to hurry – "isn't it done yet?!". They jumped right in to playing. We set up several tracks and had them all try them out.
Afterwards I moved the large set outside to try to grab a good picture. Thomas & Friends™ TrackMaster™ Avalanche Escape Set features fast and powerful motorized engines that make for the most action-packed Thomas & Friends™ adventure yet. You should see how it works -Thomas actually "flies" on his own – the track rocks him from one side to another – it's super cool! The kids were amazing, "that is awesome!" When he drives through the tunnel, it resets the bridge – even my older boy appreciated all the moving parts "did you see how this works – it's so cool" as he showed me the ins and outs of the track.
I thought it was perfect for my 5 year old, and so did he! He even rushed through his morning chores so he would have a few minutes to play with it before school. The other kiddos at our impromtu Thomas party had a blast as well – they could play for hours with the sets.
There's a brand-new Thomas & Friends™ site – your kiddo can head over there to build their very own track design – love the creativity of that! Check out the new Thomas & Friends™ TrackMaster ™ Online and build your very own track design Additionally you can see the bravest Thomas yet, along with all his friends, in a new direct-to-DVD adventure, Tale of the Brave, available beginning early September.
