One of his favorite shows to watch is Thomas And Friends, so he gets excited when we get a new Thomas Toy. When Fisher-Price said they were sending a Thomas & Friends™ Take N Play™ Rescue from Misty Island, I couldn't wait to show it to Evan.
This playset has a recommended age of 3+, but I think Evan would have enjoyed this when he was even younger. There are so many activities to do with the Take N Play™ Rescue from Misty Island, so being 3 makes it where they understand what to do. There is a front and back to the set and you can buy other Take N Play sets that this one will connect to that adds even more fun.
If you push this red button forward, it will make the bridge shake which makes Thomas(or any of your other trains that will fit through the bridge) race down the track.
Kids can also push the trains along the track. Evan is pushing Thomas through the cave in this picture.
When you push that tan colored button down at the bottom of the track, it opens the door so that the trains can go to the other side.
The logs are magnetic so kids can use the crane to lift them.
With so much to do, multiple children can play with the set at once. Isabella usually sits on the train table so she can play with the back while Evan plays with the front.
Here is a really short video of Evan pushing the button and Thomas going down the track.
The kids really enjoy this toy and have spent hours playing with it. We've had it for two months now and they still play with it regularly. The Thomas & Friends™ Take N Play™ Rescue from Misty Island would make an awesome gift for any Thomas fan. All of Evan's other Thomas & Friends trains from his wooden tracks also fit on this playset. As you can see from the pictures, Isabella enjoys it too, so girls will like it as well. If you have more than one child, this toy is perfect with two sides and multiple activities.
