Dive into savings with 28% off the Thomas & Friends lumberyard waterfall adventures at Chapters Indigo. It originally retailed for $175.95 but is now on sale for $125.95. Since Chapters Indigo offers automatically ships orders over $25 for free, you're sure to get it shipped for free as well.
Writing about this playable train set, I found out two facts about Thomas & Friends that had never known about. The first is that it actually started out as a British TV show and the second is that it has been around ever since 1984!
Judging by the picture, it looks like a lot of fun for both boys and girls. Kids can maneuver Thomas, the train, around the track as he picks up blade cargo, then uses it to chop wood and create a bridge for him to pass on and restart the whole process all around. It seems very repetitive but I guarantee that any little one is sure to love going 'round and 'round!
At Toys R Us, this same set is currently $179.99. Toys R Us' US site also lists this set at $129.99 and while it's only $4 more than Chapters' deal, shipping is also killer at more than $30. The only reviews I found were at Toys R Us and these were super positive with a total of 4 stars out of 5. Here's what one reviewer had to say about it:
Overall a great toy. The fun up and down ramp, the magnet log catcher you can twist. the only reason gave a 4 for quality was the logs get a little stuck at times. My daughter and her little brother 2/12 both love to play with it together. Great gift for any kid! Highly recommend!
Chapters Indigo is also currently offering a 20% discount on all Thomas & Friends wooden railway toys. There are plenty of railway engines available but the following 3 items definitely stood out to me the most:
- Thomas tool box: reg. $19.95/ now $15.96
- Schylling Thomas tin dome keepsake box: reg. $11.95/ now $9.95
- Thomas tough trike: reg. $49.95/ now $24.98
The Thomas tough trike is actually 50% off and looks like it could be loads of fun for the summer or even for riding down the hallway this winter! Just be sure to deck your little one in SOA-related clothing! :P
