What our experts think
Fans of Thomas and Friends were very excited to see this giant inflatable Thomas and really enjoyed making him race around the room! Our testers needed some help getting started with the controls, but overall they did get the hang of it. While they learn it’s useful to have a large open space so they don’t keep crashing into walls, but once children are confident at steering Thomas you can try setting up obstacle courses to make it more interesting and challenging.
Running around after Thomas is great for encouraging movement and active play. Controlling the toy develops hand-eye coordination and logical thinking, as children have to work out which control is needed to send Thomas in the direction they want.
