Well, I don’t need to tell you that Mini made out like a bandit this Christmas. Not only did he get a ton of new clothes from one set of cousins, a bunch of new toys and books from grandparents, and a giant giraffe stuffed animal that is bigger than he is from another cousin, he got a ton of new train stuff, including this unbelievable Imaginarium Train Table from his Grandma. It took me a while to put it together, but it’s quite astonishing now that it’s done. The thing has a bridge and tunnel that make special noises when you run the trains over them, as well as a working crane.
Please note the cross-branding opportunities provided by a train set with such detail.
And it even has a roundhouse, where the trains go to sleep at night.
Now, this is not made by Thomas the Tank Engine. I’d imagine if it were, it would cost thousands of dollars, based on their price points! But, the tracks are the same gauge, so you can use your Thomas toys on this set. It also comes with two storage drawers for extra tracks. Mini is loving it, and every time he runs his trains over one of the little sound effect things, he makes this kind of o-shape with his mouth, as if to say, “Holy shit, did you hear that?! I did it!
