I’d like to use the word ‘obsessed’ when it comes to how my son feels about trains, but I think it’s a bit more. He eats, sleeps, and breathes trains. His career goal is to drive a train (last week he told me that when he grows up, he’ll still visit me even on days he’s not driving his train, bless him). He can spot a train track half a mile away, and even happily visits thrift stores with me on the off chance we’ll find old trains. Add in how he feels about Thomas and Friends and obsessed doesn’t even cover it.

Thomas Trackmaster Tale of the Brave

We had a few of his friends over for a playdate to check out the newly engineered Thomas the Trackmaster sets and to celebrate the release of the Tale of the Brave DVD. He has been seriously talking about that movie for-ever, so to finally get his own copy paralleled the excitement of Christmas morning. I snapped this photo before he went to bed, with promises that daddy would set up the Avalanche Escape set if he was a good sleeper. 😉

The kids went GAGA over the sets. Even my husband and I geeked out a bit– check out the avalanche feature that automatically resets when Thomas goes under the tunnel. What’s going to happen, Thomas? OH NO, DON’T FALL OFF!!!

These sets have been created with steeper inclines and thrilling features. We were impressed the motorized trains could climb those steep slopes so easily.

Notched tracks keep the trains moving. And I mean MOVING. They were speedy! Even though these sets are redesigned, they’ll still fit with old trackmaster sets too so don’t fret– they’re compatible.

My son told me he loves everything about them, but especially “all the cool things that they do”. Aside from that amazing cliffhanger in the Avalanche Escape set, there’s also a bridge that falls apart and a Scrap Monster that jumps out. Plus tunnels too.

We sent each of his friends home with a set so they could enjoy them as well, and the reviews are in…

… they are a HIT. One mom told me her son and daughter loved it so much they passed up the opportunity to go out because they wanted to continue playing together. WIN.

Might I add, Trackmaster sets aren’t just for boys. My other little engineer loves it just as much.
