Adam part of his Thomas & Friends collection of engines
Children are naturally drawn to toy trains and Thomas trains are highly recognizable. There are so many characters from the Island of Sodor where Thomas the Tank Engine is from that appeal to all children, including boys and girls.
Types of Thomas Toy Trains
Before embarking on collecting these trains it helps to understand the scope of the selection. Thomas and Friends trains are offered in several formats including wooden, die cast (metal) and plastic (battery operated). These types of trains are made by Learning Curve, ERTL, Trackmaster and TOMY to name a few.
