My son, who just turned 3 on Monday, is quite a fan of Thomas and Friends. I wanted to share a few great things for those that have children that love all things Thomas!
First, Kroger makes this amazing Thomas cake. My son loved it! He must have looked at it and said "wooooowwwww" 50 times! This one is a quarter sheet cake and one layer. MEGA amounts of icing, but we scraped most of that off.
It comes with a working Thomas. It's not one of the "official" Thomas trains, but the wheels do work.
For Keaton's daycare party, we made cupcakes with various colored icing. On top, we placed Thomas and Friends rings. They stay on perfectly because the actual ring can slide down into the cupcake. Best part, after eating, they have another Thomas trinket. My son wore his rings way into the night. You can buy these on ebay or do a search for "Thomas cupcake toppers or rings" They are very inexpensive.
Sidenote: call me crazy, but I still think the liquid (drops) food coloring gives the best color for icing. I was thrilled to run across some in the Dollar Tree. I hate the gel coloring. It takes forever to get a true red.
Anyway... moving on.... :)
In going through Sonic, I noticed that this month, Sonic is featuring trains in their Wacky Pack (kid's meals). Did you know that you can buy any of the Sonic kid's toys by themselves without the food?
Each toy is $1. A great deal when there is a whole collection you're interested in getting.
I used these as favors for my son's daycare birthday party. At $1 per child, it's a great deal. Each child received the engine.
These are also perfect stocking stuffers! I'm planning on going back and getting the rest of them to put in his stocking. Look at the slush mixer! Cute!
If you have a boy, go get'em before they are gone! Each month is a new toy!
