Whether you are already a huge fan or only just starting your collection there is a perfect Thomas & Friends TrackMaster gift for every child and every budget.

TrackMaster Starter SetThe Thomas & Friends TrackMaster collection (suitable for ages 3-6, from $14.99) helps little engineers build their fine motor skills by connecting the engines and carriages, clicking the track pieces together and constructing the playsets. It also encourages young children to use their imagination through pretend play and stimulates creativity as kids design their own tracks and combine different sets to create a bigger scene.

TrackMaster Expansion PackThe revamped TrackMaster battery operated engines have been redesigned to travel up to 25% faster than the original TrackMaster engine so get ready for faster speeds, steeper heights and exciting new adventures with Thomas and the crew. Aside from old favourites like Thomas, James, Percy and Victor there is also room on the track for Gator and Timothy, the stars of the Thomas & Friends: Tale of the Brave movie.
