Disclosure: I received Fisher-Price® Thomas & Friends™ Talking Thomas & Percy Train Set in order to facilitate this review. All thoughts and opinions are honest and my own.
A train set belongs in every kids toy box and the Fisher-Price® Thomas & Friends™ Talking Thomas & Percy Train Set is the perfect set to get started with.
Sodor is usually an island in the middle of the ocean, but with the Talking Thomas & Percy Train Set, Sodor can also be in the living room.
This highly detailed playset features favourite places from the island of Sodor, including the Vicarstown Bridge, the Railyard, the Brendam docks, and Blue Mountain.
It includes 35+ play pieces, including track switches and a control panel to allow little engineers to stop the engines and control which way they go. There are 3 suggested layouts but of course young conductors can also use their imaginations to build their own Island of Sodor.
Since the set uses TrackMaster pieces, this set can be expanded on with additional Fisher-Price TrackMaster sets and parts.
It also includes motorized Thomas and Percy train engines who recognize and talk to each other when they meet on the track! This is probably the coolest part of the play set.
They’re best friends, so they often stop to chat about their work, exchanging a cheery “hello!” or sometimes chit chatting back and forth about their day. Kids will love listening to them chat as they chug along the track!
Young conductors can help Thomas and Percy work together by dropping boulders down in the Blue Mountain cave for them to load and unload along with other cargo at Bulstrode the boat and by creating their own exciting adventures all around Sodor.
My girls are absolutely enthralled with the Talking Thomas & Percy Train Set. Since setting it up 4 days ago they have not stopped playing with it.
They love building their own track designs and watching the trains chug along. They will also role play using the trains and make up their own games with the play set.
I would definitely recommend the Talking Thomas & Percy Train Set for any kid who needs a train set in their toy box this year.
The Fisher-Price® Thomas & Friends™ Talking Thomas & Percy Train Set is available to purchase at Toys “R” Us, Walmart, Amazon for $69.99 CAD.
