    found your site via Secret Agent Josephine…the Thomas drew me in. My 3 year old LOVES Thomas. In fact, up here in New England I took him to the Thomas Day Out and my only regret is that I didn’t have someone with me to film my son’s face when we were approaching the entrance gate just when Thomas chugged into the train station – he was absolutely overwhelmed with the fact that Thomas on Tv was RIGHT IN FRONT OF HIM! highly recommend this to ANY Thomas fans – its awesome and worth the price. If you can, take someone along to take pics for you – they only allow “professional” pics posed in the front of Thomas so if you can manage it, have someone stand behind the professional and snap a few extra – we did buy the professional one but would have loved to have extra prints of our own to give out. I put together a little booklet of our day and my 3 yr old LOVES to flip through it!!
