The World of Thomas, James and Percy

During my recent vacation, I spent some time assembling the train table set of my 3-1/2 year old nephew. My knowledge of such toys is very limited and it was the first time I heard about Thomas and friends. After visiting few toyshops and some interactions with my nephew’s friends I realized the craze for this train set. Here are some snaps:

Is there a way in which I can rewind my life back to childhood so that I can enjoy these small pleasures?


  • Why rewind Kaps? What stopping you from enjoying it right now? Go ahead, I promise you we won't laugh :)

  • lol.. reminds me of my experience..

    Last week I visited my niece.. atleast this train set looks much interesting, but she made me dress up barbie online for half hour!!! can u believe it ?

    apparently its some online game, but i could only watch with amazement her curiosity and interest. She said since i'm a boy i should dress up barbie's boy friend (whatever his name was) :)

  • hey do you know how much it costs in India

  • Hmmm, "Thomas and friends" is also a favorite of our son, who is four and a half. It's a great show for little children. With such a small concept, it's amazing how informative and utterly riveting this show really is!

    While you are at it, do check out Noddy and Bob the Builder too. I guarantee a great time. You won't find time to blog ...

    In terms of merchandising opportunities, the others haven't been able to go so far as Thomas and friends.

    Oh, and finally, it will make me very happy if a dictator were to somehow ban 'beyblades' from the face of this earth ...

  • @Wicked Angel,
    Thanks for the assurance....I'll reconsider it

    My nephew is miles and hence can't play with him anymore. there is a cartoon / video version of Thomas the tank engine.

    I did hear about these as well.

    Neengalum Witchuvum serndhu katchi aarambichiruveenga pola irukke. I heard that it's big craze among kids in that age group.

    Right from Barbie all toys are made in China.

    very true

    I can relate to it as I went thru a similar experience

    the one in the picture costs around 150 USD.

    I also figured out that it is really informative and educative.I heard about Bob the Builder but didn't have time to check it out. I learn't about Beyblades only recently :-)

    @Bangalore torpedo,
    am stunned!

    Re: Is there a way in which I can rewind my life back to childhood so that I can enjoy these small pleasures - Age is all in the mind! Nobody can deprive you of enjoying these pleasures, whatever your age. I don't find time to play marbles, hide and seek, fly kites but I read/hoard my childhood love comics to my hearts desire! Stay young, buddy!
