Thomas and Friends has always been a huge hit in our home, although I was a little shocked when we first started watching it as to how different it had become since I was a child. I still enjoyed watching that cheeky little train though. Zara has barely had any new toys, with Joshua still being so young when she was born she just got lumped with all the old toys (some we even bought when Keira was a baby). So when we were asked to review the Thomas and Friends comforter and soft, how could I refuse?!
Thomas and Friends Comforter
I first noticed how soft it was. A lot of the comforters we’ve bought haven’t exactly been soft but this is incredibly soft, and isn’t it just the cutest! Zara was instantly interested in the comforter, as soon as we gave it to her she was all over it. Getting a good feel and it wasn’t long until it was in her mouth and she was really testing it out.
This is the best part because it has a detachable train shaped teether. I love that it’s detachable because it means that I can give it a proper clean if it gets a bit mucky, which isn’t hard for this little monkey! She really took to the teether and it was timed perfectly because she’s been having a few teething problems at the moment.
The bright blue, yellow and red colours of the comforter and teether are really eye capturing and I suspect that’s what keeps her focused on it.
Thomas and Friends Soft Toy
We are definitely loving this cheeky little train. He’s like a train shaped teddy bear. Super soft and super cuddly. At first I done a little inspection to see if he done anything but he didn’t, just a cuddly toy. So I gave it to Zara to see her verdict. It wasn’t too great. She didn’t show much interest in the little train and I assume that’s because there are no sounds or flashing lights. She is a (almost) 7 month old.
However Joshua took to it straight away and seems to have claimed it. He has a new obsession with Thomas and is already building up a collection of trains, so it was no surprise that he enjoys the company of this Thomas.
He’s a lovely little toy and even though Zara had no interest in him, he has been loved by someone else. I’ve already had to give him a bit of a wash as he got covered in food, but I popped him on the radiator to dry and he’s looking good as new! He is certainly the perfect toddler companion.
