Fisher Price Thomas & Friends - All Around Sodor Review

7 September 2016

If you are a regular reader you will know that my little monkey loves playing whether its cars, trains, superheroes or games he seems to enjoy everything. He does however has his favourites, he is a huge fan of Disney Cars, Batman and Thomas The Tank Engine. We where recently sent Thomas & Friends - All Around Sodor and as expected it was a big hit.

The Thomas & Friends interactive train set is perfect for any little Thomas fans. Once we had opened the box it was very easy to set up. The set included pieces of track, Tidmouth Station and Cranky.

Whether you wanted to make a line of track or a figure eight little J found the pieces of track easy to connect. He started off making a line but then decided he wanted the figure eight that was shown on the box.

Once the track was set up it was time for Thomas to move around the track. We switched him on (he requires 2 x AAA batteries but they were included) and he was ready to go.

We placed Thomas on the tracks and used the three buttons on his roof to control him. One button will send Thomas to Tidmouth Station, another sends him to Cranky and the last button makes Thomas go and stop.

There is cargo at Cranky's location which can be loaded on to Thomas and Thomas can take it Tidmouth and unload it.

Thomas has over 50 sounds and phrases and as he passes the locations he will interact with James, Percy, James and Sir Topham Hat.

Little J loves creating different tracks and enjoys watching Thomas move around the track.


What We Loved

Thomas is interactive. Over 50 sounds and phrases.

Thomas moves around the track using the 3 buttons.

2 different locations to travel too with the choice to load and unload cargo.

The track can be placed in all different shapes to make play more fun.

The track is easy to connect.

What Could Improve

Thomas tends to derail on the bends which I find annoying however little J thinks it's funny.


Thomas & Friends - All Around Sodor Toy Train Set is available at most good toy stockists and Amazon

*we were sent the Thomas & Friends - All Around Sodor for the purpose of this review. All thoughts, opinions and photographs are our own.


  1. I think one of my nephews, who is a huge Thomas fan, would really love this!

  2. My Little girl Poppy loves Thomas the Tank Engine. This looks like a great idea for her birthday or Christmas. I can see her having alot of fun with it xx

  3. My god son and his brother are both Thomas mad! Both their birthdays are coming up so I expect lots of Thomas presents lol

  4. My Nephew would love this. Actually so would my daughter. I think Thomas and Choo choo's are always a big hit.

  5. I love that the pieces fit together easily. My girls get so frustrated when they can't do it. Or equally when they manage to do build the track and then play with a train and the track breaks. This looks really good.

  6. Both of my son's loved building train tracks, particularly Thomas. We visited Thomas land at Drayton manor a few years ago and my son became obsessed with Thomas, great fun constructive play.


Thanks for your comments. I love reading them :)
