My four sons have always loved Thomas the Train. Ever since they were old enough to understand the world of Thomas, they’ve been hooked. We’ve watched Thomas the Train on TV for years, but the best part of all for my sons is getting to play with their own personal Thomas the Train toys. I have to say, Thomas the Train will always have a very special place in my heart. Thomas has brought hours and hours of fun and imagination into the lives of my little guys.
We recently were sent an AMAZING toy for our 7-year-old Henry from Mattel called Thomas & Friends™ TrackMaster™ Shipwreck Rails Set. As soon as all my sons saw Shipwreck Rails, they ALL wanted to help put it together with Henry! I have to admit, it is the coolest toy and seeing my four sons put it together on their own was very cool, too!
Shipwreck Rails is a Thomas & Friends™ Toy Train Set with a Pirate Ship and Motorized Train. Your child watches Thomas navigate the perilous Shipwreck Rails and gets to have a front row seat in the amazing action! Inspired by the Thomas & Friends™ movie Sodor’s Legend of the Lost Treasure, the TrackMaster™ Shipwreck Rails Set captures all the adventure of the movie. Don’t worry – if you haven’t seen the movie, you won’t miss out on the fun.
Seeing the movie just will just enhance the experience because your kids will know all about Sodor’s Legend of the Lost Treasure from it and love being part of the “arrrgh” action!
The WOW factor of Shipwreck Rails for Henry (OK… and all of us!) is that after Thomas climbs the long, steep incline to the top of the ship’s mast, Thomas plunges towards the deck and completely turns upside-down as he speeds along the spiral track! Henry would get so excited when it plunged down! It was so cute!
It’s like watching someone go down a roller coaster! Everyone cheers and holds their breath to see if Thomas will make it! The best part? After Thomas reaches the bottom, he discovers the lost treasure!
I mean, truly, what child wouldn’t love watching a train plunge, chug, climb and speed?! Henry played with Shipwreck Rails for over an hour without stopping to look up! It was adorable and the action that this toy provides is awesome.
I love the happiness and excitement Thomas the Train brings to our house. I think it’s heart-warming to see my son Henry really invested in a fun toy.
Make sure you add this to your holiday toy list for the Thomas Train lovers in your family!
