Thomas is cool - at least if you are five years old. To many kids of that age, Thomas is trains, and vice versa. I guess later it becauses the Pollar Express, etc., but at age five . . .
Among other things interesting to me about Thomas. One of our several Thomas's had the mechanism that moves the eyesl back and forth break. It is amazing how many (all) and how fast (near instantly) kids see that and remark on it!!!
