What It Is
Thomas fans who like trains and construction play can start their own buildable world of Thomas & Friends with the Thomas Deluxe Starter Set. The 130 pieces in this set come packaged in a reusable, PVC-free, zippered duffle bag. The instructions show kids one way to build, but this set is really designed so that kids can build and rebuild however they want. Guide Thomas through Maron Station and over the bridge to help Thomas transport a coal truck. Load up on coal by the hopper or logs by the chute, then help Thomas transport his goods to their destination. This building set includes a buildable Thomas and Troublesome Truck, plus a sticker sheet for decorating the blocks. This is compatible with other MEGA Bloks Thomas building sets, which are sold separately.
Why It’s Fun
This set's chunky blocks make it easy and safe for young builders to play and build with Thomas. Kids will like using their imaginations to build the track set and play out all kinds of Thomas stories. This set is a great introduction to building for young kids as well as a great introduction to train play for Thomas fans.
Who It’s For
The Thomas Deluxe Starter Set is for Thomas fans ages 3–6.
What To Be Aware Of
This set took us 15 minutes to put together, and the instructions were very easy to follow. However, it might take a younger child more time to assemble.
We do wish the pieces stayed together a little better, as with active play they can tend to come apart. Of course, kids will just put them back together again.
The instructions do not give specific placement for the stickers. You can put the stickers wherever you want or follow the picture on the package to see where the stickers should go.
