The Thomas and Friends Wooden Railway – Tidmouth Sheds – is a great addition for a child who loves Thomas and Friends and who already has various characters and maybe even the table. The railway shed is a one piece unit that comes with a turntable to allow the entry of Thomas and his friends to enter the shelter. Let’s take a closer look at what this toy has to offer your child.
If your child is a fan of the famous Thomas and Friends characters, this toy is definitely for him or her. As this toy is an additional component to an already setup Thomas and Friends play table or train set, it is not suitable for every child.
This railway shed does not come with any other accessories and is considered a “build upon” unit for other Thomas and Friends toys. If you decide to purchase this toy, it is best that you first consider purchasing the basic Thomas and Friends characters and other smaller units for your child’s full enjoyment. For example, the train tracks and even a play table that is popular with the Thomas and Friends toys would be great starters. This can add up in terms of cost, but it makes sense if your child is a real fan of the series.
An action turntable is included to move Thomas and his friends from the train track to their resting shed. The Thomas and Friends Wooden Railway – Tidmouth Sheds can only fit 10 trains.
The back of the shed is open for easy access to the trains by your child. There are doors on the front of the shed, but it can be difficult for little fingers to move the trains in and out. The downside to this unit is that for the expected quality, the doors of the sheds don’t stay completely shut to hold in the trains.
The shed and its plastic turntable are easy to clean, which is great for the hours of play your child will have with this toy, often times with dirty fingers. Considering the reputation of the Thomas and Friends toys being solid wood, it is a little unclear why the turntable was made out of plastic.
This unit is large, so you need to ensure that you have adequate space for your child to enjoy hours of creative play time. Overall, this unit makes a great addition if your child is a collector of Thomas and Friends toys, which makes for a great buy.
