We recently had the chance to test out the newly redesigned Thomas & Friends™ TrackMaster™ sets, and we invited a few friends over for a Thomas playdate to share in the fun. Let me tell you now, if you’re looking for a holiday gift for your little one that will bring hours of family fun, you’ll definitely want to add these new Thomas & Friends™ TrackMaster™ sets to your wishlist!
I set out a few snacks and sweet treats for the kids – licorice, marshmallows, crackers and milk (with fun straws, of course!) – and I decorated the containers with cute train printables from Poofy Cheeks.

- Thomas & Friends™ TrackMaster™ Sort & Switch Delivery Set
- Thomas & Friends™ TrackMaster™ Treacherous Traps Set
The Avalanche Escape Set is where all of the action was at, and it was the clear favorite of all of the kids. The new motorized trains are faster and more powerful then the previous versions, so chugging up this hill is no problem at all. This set is over 5 feet long and includes a tipping track that propels Thomas and his friends across the gap. The kids couldn’t get enough of watching the trains jump the gap, and I love that the tipping mechanism automatically resets itself so that it’s ready for the next train (without Mom having to come set it up over and over again!).
The Sodor Spiral Expansion Pack adds a great dimensional element to the track without taking up too much space. All of the sets are are compatible with each other as well as the older versions, so little engineers can use their imaginations to create endless different layouts and arrangements.
To wrap up our playdate, we watched the new Thomas & Friends™ Tale of The Brave DVD.
