Thomas - Really Useful?I purchased this product in 2015 as an addition to my wooden collection. I have of course owned Thomas in the past, from the 1996 version up to the 2001 version. However, I have had yet to own one of the most recent iterations of Thomas; with this year being the 70th Anniversary of the Thomas franchise, I decided it was only right to look at this version of Thomas and add it to my collection - comparing the new versus the old, and seeing where Thomas has come from and where he will continue to go to in future. This was purchased as a new product. At first glance Thomas appears to be relatively decent as a wooden model; he has the correct shape and proportionately he looks very much like Thomas - in an age where the other product lines like Take 'n Play are modifying the looks of their engines in a negative way to cut costs, it's refreshing to see the Wooden range has not done the same. The paintwork is well-applied and has the glossy feel that signifies Thomas Wooden Railway and quality products, and the decal-work on the sides is done well - with no discernible wear and fade. The model is made mostly of wood as well, save for more complex shapes such as wheels, smokebox, and dome - again, in an age where most toys are made of plastic. The face is of particular significance - revised in 2013 to more accurately reflect the television series counterpart, this Thomas' face is done very well indeed - looking for all the world as if Thomas has leapt off the television screen and into a wooden form. In a franchise like Thomas where faces are incredibly important for children in recognition and understanding, Thomas' face is done extremely well. If there are any downsides with this model, it would have to be the simplicity of this product - this is a standard Thomas, with no lights or sounds or speech. Some parents and children may find this underwhelming, particularly with the abundance of variations of Thomas available - battery operated, lights and sounds, talking, roll and whistle, and so on. With so many options available, the standard Thomas seems to be lacking in some ways for some. The other big criticism of Thomas is the cost - without mentioning costs, the Thomas wooden railway has always been one of the most expensive brands of wooden trains on the market. Thomas himself is very expensive as a single small engine, compared to other options on the market. Thomas Wooden Railway is a premium brand, with premium quality and prestige; the individual certainly pays for it at times. Overall this is a fine example of the Thomas Wooden Railway, and a fine addition to my collection. Every child should have at least one Thomas in their collection, and this is one of the best examples to go by - it is detailed well, built with quality and care, and will last a lifetime. Simple though it may be, this Thomas will entertain and impress as the original wooden models did in 1992, and as the books did from the 1940s to the present. Well worth the purchase for any fan.
