Thomas and Friends Shark Escape Review and Giveaway

Thomas and Friends Adventures Shark Escape

Thomas and Friends toys are very popular with Biggest. He loves vehicles with wheels, as I have mentioned before, and very much enjoys the repetitive action of train tracks. He particularly enjoyed Thomas and Friends Adventures Shark Escape set, because it has a dramatic mechanism that propels Thomas through a loop of water, where he narrowly escapes a shark’s jaws. One reader can win this track set for their own little Thomas the Tank Engine fan. Simply enter via the Rafflecopter at the end of this post.

You can see how much both Biggest and Littlest enjoyed playing with the adventure set in our unboxing video below:

The Thomas and Friends Shark Escape set is very easy to assemble. I can dismantle and put it away in the box each day. It only takes a few seconds to snap the pieces together again when the children ask to play with it.

We were really impressed with the toy. Biggest was very excited by the dramatic action of Thomas loop-the-looping. As it is a very repetitive action, and he has autism, Biggest found the best fun in making Thomas loop over and over again. The fine and gross motor skills needed to make the action work correctly were a little tricky for him – but this is a good thing. Often, it is hard to get him to practise the motor skills he finds difficult because he avoids things he finds challenging. However, with this set, he was so enchanted by watching Thomas spin round that he was motivated to keep trying. This meant that, eventually, he mastered being able to work the mechanism entirely by himself.

Littlest enjoyed more imaginative play with Thomas. I saw her talking to him, pushing him around the track and making him talk to the shark! In fact, Thomas and Friends toys are designed to help your child’s development in a range of areas, from physical and motor skills to cognitive skills and problem solving. Find out more here.

  1. Thank you for the review my grandson would love this set he has a few others but with the Shark and his big teeth adds a little bit of danger and lots of fun.

  2. My nephew loves Thomas and this would be for him- but you’re never too old: my teenage boys found one of their old Thomas DVDs a couple of months ago and I found them singing along to the theme tunes and discussing which episodes had scared them when they were little!

  3. My little man loves Thomas, but he is crazy about sharks! He would absolutely love this, I think it’s on the cards as a gift if I don’t win. Fingers crossed though, thanks for the chance at a great prize!

  4. My nephew would love this as he loves everything Thomas and this is something different . 4th birthday soon so just the right age x

    Looks like so much fun. I just know he world be over the moon to play it.

  8. My little’un love anything Thomas the Tank Engine ever since we went on one of those Thomas rides at the local park.

  9. My grandson would love it and as his dad is still a big kid I reckon they would have hours of fun with this x

  10. ….because she is getting older now. So having a toy like this, which is a little more advanced than most of her current toys, would be very fun for her. At least, thats what I assume.

  11. Thomas is a great favourite; blue is her favourite colour because Thomas is blue. She also has an undersea mural in her room and loves the shark in it.

  12. because anything train related (especially Thomas!) is a great hit here, and the shark would add even more appeal ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. My little Grandson loves Thomas and Friends also liking underwater creatures at the moment so this would be ideal for him

  14. My son would live this because heโ€™s seen it on YouTube, he loves watching Thomas toy/unboxing videos ๐Ÿ™‚ canโ€™t believe his Thomas obsession has been going on over 3 years now!

  15. Maxx (my great-nephew, hope that’s OK) would love this. ๐Ÿ™‚ Sometimes he goes “that’s a bit girlie” so the shark would add a boyish dimension to this great prize.

  16. I would love this set for my nephew & godson who lives 3 houses away from me and who I absolutely dote on! He is mad about Thomas and his birthday is coming up soon. He would really love this.

  17. My son is Thomas mad, this would be perfect to keep at his grandma’s for when she looks after him the day i go to work.

  18. My son and daughter both adore watching Thomas. They have two different sets to this and have lots of fun playing with them together (luckily 2 year old Erin will always let her big brother be Thomas whilst she is Percy!) so I’m sure they’d love to add this to their collection. It looks like so much fun!

  19. My son is a big fan of sharks so would love to watch Thomas whizz by, this set looks lots of fun. Thank you for the chance.

  20. My little boy turned 1 in February and I havenโ€™t really seen anything catch his eye and hold his attention like Thomas, so genuinely I am trying to win this for him. Heโ€™s a lovely little boy, his brother and sister are like busy bees and get get far more attention than Iโ€™d like to give because they are so demanding, where I feel he misses out on his daddy because daddy is always busy replying to โ€œDADDDYYYYY!!!!โ€ Thank you for the chance. Lovely giveaway xxx
