I just ran across a super cool Mega Bloks gift set for any young child. The Mega Bloks Thomas and Friends Happy Birthday Thomas! Building Set combined beloved Thomas with a buildable train set. Originally $34.99, this set is on sale for just $25.15 and comes with free shipping as it is just over the minimum threshold.
This set includes a buildable Thomas the tank engine and a buildable Percy engine. Thomas is wearing a party hat so he can party along with your child. The set also comes with a constructible party scene. It includes a six-piece track and a chute for dropping party supplies. Help Percy plan a birthday party for Thomas! The set also includes a wagon, balloon accessories, and blocks. For extra customization, there is a sticker sheet for your child to add their own personalized touch to the blocks.
The entire set comes with a bag for easy clean up and storage. I really like that a toy like this with lots of parts comes with its own storage bag. This makes it easier for all the parts of one set to be kept together instead of mixed up and lost in a communal toy box.
According to CamelCamelCamel, this is the lowest price that this train set has ever been at Amazon Canada. I also price compared the set with Toys R Us Canada, where it currently retails for $34.99. Between these two checks, i just know you are getting the best price on this lovely Birthday Thomas & Friends set.
The set is designed for ages two to five but your own child's interests and level of play will determine if this is right for them. Personally, I think this is such a cute set and would make not only a great birthday gift but also a great Christmas gift. The sticker sheet comes with stickers for cake and balloons and clowns and more... but I don't see a specific 'happy birthday' sticker so you could really give this any time of the year.
Thomas & Friends is so popular with young kids - some mothers say that is all their boys will play with! This is not only a great Thomas & Friends set; it is extra nice because your child gets to build the set instead of just play with it. This is sort of like two toys in one.
