What It Is

The MEGA Bloks Thomas & Friends James set is a buildable version of James, the Number 5 red engine. He has a reputation for being a little too proud, but he's always quick to help out. This set includes eight pieces. The buildable James features real working wheels so kids can have James pull the tender across and underneath the included bridge. James is compatible with MEGA Bloks Thomas & Friends Thomas, Gordon, and Henry, which are sold separately.

Is It Fun?

This building set lets kids build a favorite Thomas & Friends character, then recreate favorite Thomas stories or create brand new ones. Because this set only comes with one train engine and one bridge, preschoolers will want to collect additional MEGA Bloks Thomas & Friends sets to connect the bridge pieces, build track for the engines, and build their own Thomas world.

Who It’s For

Thomas & Friends James is for Thomas & Friends fans ages 3–6.

What To Be Aware Of

The repeat play ranking assumes that this will be purchased in conjunction with other Thomas & Friends toys.

It took us about two minutes to assemble James. No matter how long it takes your child to build, remember that building is part of the fun and play.
