Anyone like Thomas the Tank Engine out there? Thomas fans? Anyone?
So if, say, there was a fabulous event in the huge mega Toys R’ Us in Times Square…where say you and your kids could meet Sir Topham Hatt, play with the newly launched Thomas Wooden Railway, and receive a fun giveaway…well you could count on all of us at Babies Gotta Have It to tell you, right?
Well, on Friday February 8th, at the huge mega Toys R’ Us in Times Square at 1 pm EST, there will indeed be such an event featuring all that and more! The first 250 fans at the event will indeed win some super cool giveaways! And your little train fanatic will even get to attend a story time with Sir Topham Hatt himself!
And how about a sneak peek at the newest Thomas Wooden Trains? The new Thomas Wooden Railway line from Fisher-Price will debut at this event with tons of engines, destinations, and track sets in a line that will just keep growing in the future. For more than 65 years, children have enjoyed the adventures of Thomas the Tank Engine and his friends on the Island of Sodor through stories and Thomas toys powered by children’s own imagination. The Thomas story began when the Rev. W. Awdry created a fable about a cheeky blue engine named ‘Thomas’ on the fictional Island of Sodor and whittled a wooden train to entertain his young son. The introduction of Thomas Wooden Railway is also a journey that takes Fisher-Price back to its roots—which started 83 years ago with wood toys. In 1931, in East Aurora, New York, children’s book writer and illustrator Margaret Evans Price, wife of founder Irving Price, designed the first wooden Fisher-Price toys.
Great stories. Wooden toys. A magical event in one of the toy capitals of the world? Yeah, that’s something babies definitely gotta have.
