THOMAS GIVES LEGO® DUPLO® PULLING POWER
Peep, peep Thomas! Get on track for building your toddler’s imagination with the new range of Thomas & Friends construction sets from LEGO® DUPLO®.
Climb aboard to construct the island of Sodor as the world’s best-known construction toy company joins forces with the most internationally loved little blue steam engine – for the very first time.
LEGO DUPLO brings constructable engines, platforms and stations to life with the introduction of the Thomas the Tank Engine range. Created to help improve children’s cognitive skills through imaginative role-play, four new sets have been launched for January 2006.
Unlike our own railway network, the LEGO DUPLO range never suffers from delays. Take Thomas through Tidworth with Thomas Load and Carry playset complete with coal loader, signal bridge, sign and track. No adventure would be complete without a flurry of friends so steam ahead with the mischievous James at Knapford Station pack.
The reliable Toby – the only DUPLO carriage character – can be found waiting for Thomas with the Toby at Wellsworth Station set. And not forgetting that playful green pal – Percy at the Water Tower.
Children can collect, connect and build a world of their very own again and again. Add to your LEGO DUPLO Thomas collection in August when Sodor can be reached by air with Harold the Helicopter. The final introduction to complete the scene is Cranky – on watch to keep Brendam Docks in full working order.
The range is suitable for children aged from 2-5 years and is fully compatible with all other LEGO DUPLO train sets for endless fun.
