My 3yr old DS got some Thomas the tank engine tracks and trains for Christmas from his aunt and uncle. He really loved them so I went abit crazy and brought him a fair bit of Thomas stuff second hand on ebay. I've only been bringing out a train or some new track at a time.
Anyway, I want to get him (read me) a round house and a rollar coaster track. Maybe a few more engines. I'm just worried about how long he will play with them for given that they are very pricey even second hand, or alternate compatible brands.
I have a 6 month old dd who i am sure will play with them too, when shes bigger.
So just wondering really how old your kids were when they finished playing with Thomas?

Thomas the tank engine, when did your kids stop playing with him?

It entirely depends on the child. My 7.5 year old still plays with his generic wooden train set - but the bit he would get the most out of is using the various shaped pieces and making it then match up to the other end bit.

My 6 year old still loves his wooden track. The track pieces he loves the most now as he can make any design of track he wants.

i have had Thomas the tank engine at my place for my grandchildren for about 9 years. my oldest grandson was only a toddler when I started buying it. I keep it at my place because I have room to spread it out when they come to visit and they don't have to pack it away each night or anything. I cant really say if they are particularly interested in it still, but it comes out most times when they visit. I buy new engines and tracks for it so they keep interest going. my younger grandchildren just like to play with the engines. marie.

My boys were huge Thomas fans but it died off around 4 years old
We have a lot of engines (at one stage we couldn't buy any new ones because we had all of them) and wooden tracks galore that now just sit unused. I think I will keep them as one of the few toys I hang on to for grand kids though.
