Why should you get your child this Christmas train
First of all this train is inspired directly from Thomas the Train show your kids love so much. Then it comes with many interesting features and will provide your little ones with hours of pleasure. Not to mention their imagination will definitely go wild.
Like the one loco featured in the show, Thomas Christmas Express train comes with moving eyes. They actually move from the left to the right. This makes one think that the toy is alive. The loco also wears a Santa hat that can be removed (just pull it off) if your child wants. This red and white hat gives the toy a very Christmas-y look.
The set also has three freight cars decked out for Christmas. The first car after the locomotive is open-topped railway car (the red one). It comes with a Christmas tree which can be removed. This feature is ideal to shake your child’s creativeness and her ability to create amazing scenarios.
The second car is the yellow gondola in which you can see a gigantic wooden-like box adorned with a Christmas wreath. The last wagon is a green freight car covered in snow that comes with Merry Christmas wishes written on its sides. For a more realistic look, the train is also equipped with a snow plow (just unscrew the two screws).
Additional Thomas the Christmas Express Train features
You can place this adorable train under the Christmas tree. As a matter of fact, the tracks form a large 56″ x 38″ oval. Indeed, you will find 12 curved, 3 straight and 1 terminal tracks in the set. Bachmann’s E-Z track system makes the set up process a piece of cake.
I should add that your child will be able to control the speed using the specific device that comes with the set. However, kids prefer turning the speed to the maximum and make the train literally flies. The manufacturer however recommends to slowly increase the speed. Then the train is even able to go forwards and backwards.
This cute Thomas Christmas Express Train is definitely the perfect gift for train lovers, small or big. It is also a fantastic decoration for your Christmas tree and you’ll love watching it riding around it on Christmas morning.
