How awesome is this? I just found the Thomas & Friends Wooden Railway Grow With Me Playtable for half-price at Toys R Us Canada!
It usually sells for $299.99, but right now, you can order one for $149.97 as part of the Toys R Us 1/2 Price Deals promotion.
The wooden railway set includes a double-sided play board (with a pre-grooved track layout on one side and a more traditional building surface on the other). This way, the table can grow with your child, and they can play with it whether they need a little extra guidance or want to branch off and design their own tracks.
It's compatible with other Thomas & Friends sets, don't worry about needing special trains.
And if you're looking for something a little more basic, the Thomas & Friends Jumbo Mega Mat is also on sale (for $19.97 from $39.99), and it comes with a vehicle.
For a limited time, you can save $10 off your shipping costs.
