EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Gordon has somehow been convinced by Thomas to a race at the Sodor speed track and from the looks of things, this is going to be a close one. 

Right out of the hit children's show Thomas & Friends comes the Railway Race Day playset, a 58-piece building set from MEGA Bloks that features our two favorite blue engines Thomas and Gordon. 

Both engines contain interchangeable pieces so you can mix and match Thomas and Gordon's paint jobs and engine numbers. Gordon is also carrying a cart of coal which can be detached for a quicker, more even race. The raceway (which you build yourself) also contains two tracks that can be combined to create one track and lifted up to get your engines on the course - which can be also combined with other Thomas & Friends playsets.

Is It Fun?
This excellent playset that encourages role play, race day storytelling and endless interaction with our favorite blue engines. The MEGA blocks can be reconfigured to create either one track or a double race track. The trains have interchangeable blocks as well, so they never have to look the same. 


The Railway Race Day blocks are easy to put together and their large sizes are perfect for small toddler hands. Building this fun train playset encourages problem solving and works on young motor skills. Children will love racing these two trains over and over again, creating new stories, or re-enacting moments from the show.

Who It’s For
The Railway Race Day set is for ages 2 – 5 and any fans of the Thomas the Tank Engine and Thomas & Friends series,' or fans of either MEGA Bloks, building toys, or fans of trains in general. 

One of the most appealing aspects of the Thomas & Friends line for kids has always been the quiet and gentleness of Thomas and his fellow trains. Thomas is never overwhelming to kids, while always providing a great foundation for lots of imaginative solo or co-play. 

What To Be Aware Of
The Thomas & Friends Railway Race Day set from MEGA Bloks contains 58 pieces that your child can assembly and build themselves or with friends. They can also choose to make one or two tracks. The Railway Race Day set also features Thomas and Gordon trains with interchangeable blocks that you can mix and match. This train set can also be combined with other MEGA Bloks playsets, which are sold separately.
