Our Mission...

Will has become totally and utterly obsessed with Thomas the Train! What is it with Thomas? I mean he get entranced when he sees the "Choo, Choo" come on the TV. When Thomas was stuck in a ditch he was saying "Oh, no. Choo Choo." It is so funny.

So now we are on the big 2 birthday countdown. Lew and I are on a mission to find a Thomas table and train track/train set at a reasonable price. So Lew has been on eBay and craigslist hunting away. I thought barbies and such were getting expensive but trains. That is another story! Some of these small trains can range up to $25. For a single train! I mean there are people selling a lot of this stuff for like $500 on eBay. So I can only imagine how much they paid new for all of it.

We are looking for the gently used stuff. I am sure we will buy him a train here or there but sometimes used is the way to go when it comes to Thomas.

Our Mission. Find a reasonably priced Thomas set.

Good luck with the hunt. I got all of Ben's trains second hand. I found his table at a huge consignment sale and his trains on craigslist.

We got our tracks and some cars at a yard sale. Then I bought a Thomas and he thinks the whole thing is Thomas. I am still watching for some more engines. You should do a Thomas birthday party!
