Thomas and Friends Super Station | Review

Do you remember one toy from your childhood that you wanted more than any other toy? The toy that you would see on the adverts and wish that you would find under the Christmas tree? The toy that you dreamt of your Mum buying for you ever time you went in the toy shop? The toy that your Mum would use as a bargaining tool...

''If your good then maybe Father Christmas will bring it for you?''

For me it was a wild hair Cindy hair salon. 20 years ago it was THE toy that I had to have for Christmas. It was the thing that Cindy dreams were made of. It had seats for the dolls, little basins for you to wash their hair and even tubes of gel so you could give them the latest doo. The toy was everything I thought it would be and I remember how much I loved it and how grateful I was that my parents had finally brought it for me.

Pickle found a toy recently that he wanted over everything else. Cars went out the window...Play doh was boring...his pirate ship was redundant. He wanted the Thomas & Friends Super Station and as he is one of the luckiest boys in the world (and Mattel are one of the greatest brands in the world) this was his face when he saw the super station in it's full glory in our living room.




Pickle was beside himself. It was like all his Christsmases had come at once and I after seeing it set up I understand why this was the toy he just HAD to have! This set has everything that any Thomas loving child could want or need including over 10 meters of track and space for over 100 engines! The Super Station is HUGE!!! We set it up for Pickle whilst he was in bed so he could come down and see it in the morning and there is really no missing it.

The Super Station features some of the most memorable Thomas locations including the Sodor Steamworks, Blue Mountain Quarry and Tidmouth Sheds. It also includes a helipad to land Harold on and a working Cranky the Crane.

Pickles favourite part of the Super Station is, without a doubt, the fact that you can create so many different tracks and routes. The set comes with a battery powered Thomas and a couple of other trains but Pickle loves nothing more than building a track with a big ramp and then racing the trains down each side! Not only can Pickle create hundreds of different routes and stories but you can also buy additional sets that you can attach to the Super Station using special adaptors.

As a parent I think that the best thing about this toy is how adaptable it is and that, to me, also makes it value for money. It may have an RRP of £129.99 BUT you can use 4 different types of engine types with the set; TrackMaster, Adventures, MINIS and Wood engines. No more having to have a different track for different trains, this set has a very clever track that allows all of the trains to be used on it. No only can the trains be used on the tracks, they can also be stored within the Super Station itself which is amazing for us as our house isn't huge so any storage is a massive plus.

So...with this amazing Thomas and Friends Super Station all of Pickle's Thomas filled hopes and dreams have come true. He has played with this for literally 2 days straight and I can imagine he would have stayed and played longer if it wasn't for the fact that I had to go to work. I know that this is at the top of quite a few children's lists for Santa this year and I can honestly say that it is well worth the money and the space as it gives hours of fun. I can really see this being the type of toy that Pickle keeps for years as it will grow with him.


To make your little ones Thomas filled fantasies come true then check out the Thomas Super Station here.

  2. This looks fab - and a must-have for Thomas fans. Our kids have had a similar (non-Thomas) set for years and it still gets played with on a regular basis. There's a lot to be said for more traditional toys and sets such as this that encourage imaginative play.

  4. I remember what I wanted - a Mr Freezee thing that you could make slush in. I can't have been very good as I never got one! :D This looks like a brilliant toy, no wonder he's over the moon with it! :)

  5. Wow, that looks incredible. I do love how it caters for more than just one type of engine. It always annoys me when toy manufacturers change sets, meaning you need to buy new tracks for new engines.

  17. Smiling away at the memories of Cindy. She was also my favourite doll but I always wanted her enormous house which had a lift at the side. It was amazing. So glad Pickle got the toy that has made his year, my boy always loved Thomas too. Mich x

  21. We have one of these and I was so impressed with how long both boys played with it. I think they have done very well to make sure it works with so many of the other sets too as it gives it masses of longevity. Pickle's face is a picture - I am glad he loves it! x

  22. I was reading along then when the photo revealed itself I said - ooooo!!! That is one beautiful train set. My kids love Thomas the Train too. I bought them a set for Christmas five years ago and it is still loved & treasured in the playroom!
