Thomas and Friends is at it again!

All aboard! Thomas the Train has been around since I was a child.  It was Thomas and Barney that captured the hearts of children everywhere and was a must watch daily.

“Thomas & Friends: Big World! Big Adventures! The Series” made its debut on September 17th.  This all-new redeveloped series comes with exciting new features, from new locations and a gender-inclusive Steam Team, to new formatting seeing Thomas breaking the fourth wall, speaking directly to the audience and inviting kids along for the adventures!

Throughout the years, Thomas has been able to sustain its growth and stay relevant so why would anything change? In a new age where everything is out in the open and children are learning earlier in life about their part in their future, Thomas will be there to guide them along.

The series is also about to get serious about female empowerment as they welcome a new engine all the way from Kenya named Nia, who is the absolute equal of Thomas the Tank Engine and the other male engines populating the Island of Sodor.

She’s independent, a great problem solver and fast learner, who is also a real optimist with a great sense of fun.

As a parent, Actress Olivia Wilde is “on board” with everything Thomas is standing for along with the United Nations sustainable development goals that have been worked into the show.

Additionally, along with the revamped series comes new music and an all new theme song that little engineers are sure to love. The new music is now streaming on Spotify.

My 6 year old son has been what I call “past the Thomas phase” for a couple of years now and onto the stuff his older brother is doing. Verbatim he told me “Thomas is for babies” when I asked if he’d like to check out the new Thomas the Train series and movie.

I explained to him that it changed a bit and that he should give it a try. Not only does it have some cool stories but it’s on Nick Jr. now! He agreed to check it out and that was that.

There are many new catchy songs which is much different than the old format.  This certainly helps to keep kids engaged and wanting to know what happens next!

He immediately fell into his Thomas the Train obsession and wanted to pull out his Thomas the Train toys to play with  where collected many over the years and they’ve collected dust but I’m happy to pull them back out if they’ll get some 6 year old lovin’!

There are some awesome NEW Thomas toys out as well that play more into the new themes like this Jungle Set my son cannot get enough of. His laugh says it all..
