Thomas and his friends brings smiles, fun and laughter to young children. Thomas is a fun place for children as they watch the trains and characters interact with each other, as they bump into each other physically and emotionally, and how they deal with these emotions. Children watch as the characters work through their differences, their problems and their frustrations and forge friendships. Children learn by example, and this is a fun way for children to learn about friendship, teamwork and care for self and others. Here are some fun toys that will encourage your children on their journey with Thomas and his friends.
