We have restocked and new items in the Thomas Wooden Railway…
The Thomas trains from Fisher Price are a huge hit with kids of all ages. Made of real wood, with magnetic couplers and an entire imagination of characters and layouts. The push around locomotives have been augmented with train sounds and battery power movements. The trackside structures can be mixed and matched to create hundreds of configurations for hours of fun.
Priced from $13.99 (characters) and $20.00 (kits).
At the other end of the spectrum…
