Thomas the Tank Engine has been around for years and is as popular as ever. But how much to we really know about this lovable blue train and his friends? Where can we buy Thomas toys and when can we see the live show?Don’t worry, help is at hand – the ‘Golden Bear’ has the total guide to all things Thomas.
The best starting point to finding out more about Thomas and Friends has to be the Thomas and Friends website. Its jam packed with the latest Thomas news, games and more information about your favourite characters. The Tours and Events page is a really useful way of finding out when Thomas and Friends are coming to a heritage railway near you. Here at Golden Bear, we love the activities section where you and your children can enjoy hours of fun on the colouring pages and creating e-cards to send to family and friends.
This is also how I found out about the Thomas and Friends Live Show. Once again in 2008 Thomas and Friends is coming to a theatre near you with a new 90 minute musical extravaganza, Thomas Saves the Day. If you’d like to find out more about the live show please visit the Thomas and Friends website or, for ticket information, visit Ticket Master.
You could encourage your children to take along their Thomas and Friends toys to see the show. At Golden Bear we have a great selection of Thomas and Friends toys for all ages including a drive away talking Thomas. Check out our full range of Thomas and Friends toys at the Golden Bear website.
Wikipedia is another useful source of Thomas and Friends information. You can read all about the history of the Thomas the Tank Engine story and the television series. Also, there is some great Thomas trivia for you to enjoy. Did you know that Ringo Starr narrated the first few series of the original Thomas the Tank Engine Television programme? On the subject of the television programme, you can now view it online at the internet movie database or purchase the DVD from many good retailers.
And of course the great thing about a blog is you can add your own Thomas trivia and useful information sources you’ve found – just click on comments below!
