Not so long ago we went as a family to the premiere of the latest Thomas The Tank Engine movie in Leicester Square. Filled with tales of buried treasure, old pirates and danger behind every turn it was right up Jimmy’s street and we had a fabulous time enjoying Thomas The Tank Engine – Sodor’s Legend Of The Lost Treasure for the first time – I’m sure we will be watching it again at some point!
Florence liked it too but it has to be said, when it comes to Thomas & Friends, Jimmy is the biggest fan in our house and he thought everything about our trip was simply fantastic. You see it wasn’t just a movie we got to see, we also went to the pre-show party where themed food was on offer along side a play with lots of the new Fisher Price toys to accompany the film. He was absolutely in his element!
He really likes the Thomas toys by Fisher Price and his Take ‘n’ Play toys are ones which he often has out so he was very interested to see the new selection from this range to accompany the film. He was utterly thrilled when last week he got to try one of them out at home and have a really good proper play!
He was sent the Take ‘n’ Play Daring Dragon Drop along with the new character from the movie ‘Skiff’ and has been whizzing the Thomas train (which comes with the set) round and round on it! The game is that Thomas finds a shield on Misty Island before he bravely goes to explore Dragon Island to seek out the legendary dragon. With a volcano on the way though, Thomas must try and escape, but first he must cross the dragon bridge. Little ones can help Thomas escape from the volcano by letting him zip-line the dangerous Dragon Bridge. This playset folds up easily for storage and portability and includes lots of exciting features such as an “erupting” volcano with lights and sounds and a dragon bridge with zip-line.
Skiff, who comes separately, doesn’t fit inside the compartment at the top of the zip wire like Thomas does but he too can go along the track. It lights up and makes a noise from the film and Jimmy loves pushing it down and then smacking the lever to watch Thomas be launched to safety! It’s a really fun set and with it comes the treasure chest and shield which Thomas can carry on his front.
Jimmy has really enjoyed playing with his new toy train set which connects up to his other Take ‘n’ Play toys and can be used together with them. Perfect!
We were sent the Thomas Take ‘n’ Play Daring Dragon Drop for the purpose of an honest review.
