On Sunday morning we went along to Hamley’s for a special Thomas day! The Fat Controller and some of his friends had come along to celebrate the launch of Tracks4Thomas, marking their epic journey to deliver presents and some Thomas & Friends magic to children in hospitals across UK and Ireland. You can see details of the journey schedule on the Tracks4Thomas website, alongside a gallery from the previous Hamley’s and Hospital visits.

My boys love Thomas, especially Mr T and Mr R at the moment. So for them to be able to wander around Hamley’s surrounded by Thomas activities was ideal for them!
