    Both of my kids love Thomas & James. They love to sing along their favorites from the episodes. They have learnt a lot of great lessons watching them. They would love to see Thomas in person. Already subscribed.

    Nicholas is two and LOVE, LOVE, LOVES Thomas. He screams “Taun-tus” whenever we pass anything that remotely looks like a train track.

  • Marbella Jones says:

    My son Diego has loved anything Thomas since he could talk. He knows every single character and can tell you all about the engines and the Island of Sodor. Diego is now 4 and is teaching his little brother Nicolas all about Thomas and his friends. This would be a great family experience for us and we would be so happy and excited to win these passes! 🙂

    My son loves Thomas because he’s a train.

  • Ana O says:

    My little boy is fascinated with all means of transportation and has been asking to ride a train for a while! He would love it 🙂

    I am a subscriber of your wonderful newsletter already also.

    My husband is an avid train hobbiest and passed his love of trains to our twin boys, Brady and Keegan (3 1/2 years old). They have Thomas clothes, toys, videos, pillows, books and even a bubble blower! They would FREAK out to see a big Thomas and actually get to ride on it! They love to sing the Thomas theme song to each other. I don’t know what it is about Thomas but we definitely have 2 big fans.

  • Laura says:

    My children love Thomas! They love to watch the shows and get so excited every time they see a choo choo train!

  • Jennifer says:

    My 3 year old daughter LOVES Thomas!! She thinks all trains are Thomas and would go bananas to ride on him. Her 16 year old brother loved him too when he was young, so we still have his train table, all the trains from Thomas from over 10 years ago, the videos, etc. I know thins would be a true blessing for our family to experience a Day Out With Thomas!!

    Hi guys,

    I can’t really tell you why my 7 year old daughter loves Thomas so much! She has been enamored for quite a while now. I only have daughters–5 of them to be exact–and I don’t know how she began the obsession, as Thomas rarely has any female protagonists. She just loves him, I guess. It’s actually kinda cute, too.

    Oh, I already subscribe to your awesome mag.

    Thanks,
    DaiSha

    My Son Bryson told his substitute teacher his name was Thomas. She called him Thomas all day, and he answered. He learned his colors thru train names. Everything is blue like Thomas green like percy, red like James and yellow like Molly.

  • tanya says:

    my 3 year old and 18month old LOVE Thomas and friends, they watch it everyday and they name their toys after the engines. my 18 month old LOVES to listen to the songs he also dances and tries to sing to the songs.
