Am I making a mistake getting rid of this? - Page 2

post #21 of 24

Definitely keep.

 

As far as toys go, trains aren't usually that big so it should be easy to store.

 

Also, loaning is a great idea - the Thomas sets are well made and the set that we have has been through 3 other sets of boys and the paint still looks practically new (even on the wood sets!). 

 

My LO loves Thomas and having all the trains and gear has been helpful for his development. He can name all the trains/colors/parts and the coolest thing for us to see is that he can already identify the numbers on the trains, counts to 10 and puts the trains in order up to #4 and he isn't even 2 yet - such a versatile toy really :)

 

Even if your LO doesn't like Thomas, it such a popular set that you'll be able to find someone to enjoy it.

Thanks so much for all the opinions! I've decided to keep the tracks. orngbiggrin.gif

my mom kept my youngest brother's thomas set (he and I would watch shining time station before kindy and college respectively. lol) and it gets a TON of use still...between 4 grandsons who visit. plus I'm pretty sure my big many 21yr old brother would flip if she got rid of it!

 

my ex kidnapped my set along with the kids, I couldn't bring myself to buy a new set for a second time....and I still have niggling feelings of regret.

I did however splurge and buy the duplo thomas lego set for younger DS....it was a pain tho. always popped apart and tracks never stayed. kids enjoyed it anyway however!
