Holiday Gift Guide, TrackMaster ™ Quest for the Crown Play set, a must for the Thomas & Friends fan on your gift list

 Are you looking for a great holiday gift  for a child ages 3-8? Are they big Thomas & Friends  fans? Well I have a great new play set that they are going to love! The Thomas & Friends™ TrackMaster ™ Quest for the Crown Play set. Here is a little more info about this cool play set from the site:

Thomas & Friends™ TrackMaster ™ Quest for the Crown Playset . Inspired by the new Thomas & Friends™ DVD movie, King of the Railway, the TrackMaster™ Quest for the Crown Set features Thomas’ journey for the missing King’s crown. Can your little engineer help him navigate the crumbling castle grounds and emerge with the prize? 

Use the crane to swing the missing track in place so Thomas can continue on his journey as walls collapse around him. He needs to chuff through the castle before the gate drops down, then descend into the abandoned mine and escape with the crown! With excitement around every turn, the TrackMaster™ Quest for the Crown Set provides endless entertainment for your little engineer!  Requires 1 AA battery (not included).


  • Thomas with interactive Red Truck with Crown cargo piece
  • Collapsing Bridge
  • Track Repair Crane
  • Ulfstead Castle Tower
  • Castle Mine Tunnel
  • Loop of track with spiral tower

Our take: 

 Are you ready to visit the island of Sodor, are you ready to have some amazing adventures with Thomas and Fiends? Well with the new play set, TrackMaster ™ Quest for the Crown you and your little ones can do just that. I was very fortunate to be able to have my little nephew over last night, and I had a little surprise for him, we were going to play with a  the Thomas & Friends train play set!! 

My nephew Matt is a great age for enjoy the new TrackMaster ™ Quest for the Crown Play set from Fisher Price.  He is a huge Thomas fan and I knew he would just love this fun toy. I told him about the set and he yelled "Yay Thomas!" so I could see that he was excited. My nephew is four years old and the biggest Thomas fan ever. Yes he has just about all of the videos, and quite a few trains that he seems to travel with all the time.  He loved this set and wanted to play with it over and over again.

This set is made well, it has a durable train and tracks. My nephew has accidentally dropped the train and sections of the track, and the pieces have held up fine. The set has multiple action sections that keep kids moving and having fun. For the younger kids the action sections can be set to easy mode to make this more basic and simple for the younger kids to enjoy. Do you have any older wooden Thomas Train tracks? 

Well don’t worry you can add the classic train wooden train tracks to the current plastic tracks.  The only issue I had with the toy was the assembly it took me a little bit to get the track together, I am not the best assembler in the family but I was able to do it. It was an issue to find the a good place to play with the play set. Well that is  not the play sets fault, it is great that the play set is larger and a nice size to play with… It is just hard living in a smaller home and finding a place to construct this cool play set.  
But on the bright side with this set,  when he's done playing with it I can easily box it up and put it away it is so simple. I loved seeing my nephew play and enjoy this train set, he seemed to be having a blast. If your little one has a Thomas play set, this set is different, this train set provides "action" that the other one does not, and this makes it lots of fun to play with. The set is great for younger kids to watch and manipulate so all the tricks and movements work. 

The crane that moves a piece of track from one spot to another to make sure that the train doesn't crash, this was played with over and over again. The mine collapses, and you have to help Thomas make it out in time! This set is designed to be more hands on, so your child will be having fun playing, not just sitting watching the train go around and around the track. I would recommended this for any Thomas fan, this is a must have!  Overall this is a  well-made and fun toy. I am sure my nephew will now like the other additions and accessories, perhaps he will get a surprise under the tree from Santa, you just never know?

If you have a little guy (or gal, I must say my daughter just adored Thomas when she was younger, so don’t forget about the little girls who are fans) on your holiday gift list this year that loves Thomas, or if they are a car/train lover this would make a wonderful gift idea.  This TrackMaster ™ Quest for the Crown Play set  would make a great gift for a Thomas fan, make sure to pick one up this holiday season. 

This set is for Children ages 3-8. Why not get your gifts early and the little or big boy that receives a Thomas toy will really enjoy it, this will not be the kind of toy that sits on the shelf and it not played with, this will be a toy that will get a lot of use  the kids will love it! The play set retails for $60.00 and is now on sale at Amazon,  for only $47.99 and they offer free shipping! So why not pick up this great gift for a great price.

How fun is this? I always loved Thomas even for my girls when they were small. The show has nice characters and moral lessons.

Thomas and Friends was one of my absolute favorite characters when my son was growing up. It took me years to recycle the toys to our neighbors with younger boys. Thanks for sharing!
