If you didn’t know already, T goes tipsy for trains.
He loves all types, but if he had to choose, he would go for the locomotive. I don’t know whether it’s the sound they make or how pretty they are, but whenever he catches sight of a steam train he goes nuts.
We’ve been to the Bluebell Railway already, and already have plans to visit Eastbourne’s miniature Railway soon. At Christmas, I lost count of the times we watched Polar Express, and at least once a day he asks whether he can watch Thomas & Friends. I’m pretty confident in saying that our son is an absolute anorak when it comes to trains – and more so about Thomas and Friends. He can name all the characters – even the cameo ones that haven’t made the cut of being a regular – and can remember what happens in most episodes.
So, when we Boolino got in touch and asked whether T would like to review the new Thomas and Friends Character Encyclopedia, I couldn’t contain my excitement as I knew T was going to blow a gasket at the sight of this.
