Review & Giveaway | Thomas’ Big Pop-Up Journey

img_2654

Both of my children love Thomas & Friends, it’s something that they’ve grown up with so we were thrilled when we were asked if we would like to review the new Thomas’ Big Pop-Up Journey book.

We’ve had many Thomas books over the years, in fact we have quite a collection going! But this one is far more than your average book, it’s a pop up book with a twist. You can actually fold out the entire book to create a 3d play mat!

Where is Thomas going today? Turn the pages of this pop-up book to follow his travels around the island of Sodor. Then fold out the pages to create an amazing 3-D play mat. With play pieces of all your favourite engines, you can make up your own adventures for Thomas and his friends!

The book comes in a box and when you take it out and open the front cover there is a little pouch which holds all of the figures for the play mat. My kids were particularly happy to see a little Fat Controller figure!

I love the effort that has gone into making this book, from the thick pages and the presentation box, the detail on the pop up buildings, to the little pouch which holds the figures. Such a great quality book which I can see lasting for years.

When the book arrived the three of us sat down together and read through the pages first before opening the book out to have a look at the play mat. Evie enjoyed matching the figures up with the characters in the book as we went along.

Evie in particular loves playing with train sets, so this book has been a real hit with her. Max has been unwell over the past few days so we’ve been stuck in doors a lot, this has literally been a life saver for me as it’s kept these two occupied when I was running out of ideas that didn’t involve the iPad or TV!

As a mum I love that this book encourages my children to use their imagination whilst they play. I also love that it folds away neatly and doesn’t take up much space. I really like the little pouch for the figures too, it means that they won’t get separated from the book and lost, which is what would usually happy with these two!

Thomas’ Big Pop Up Journey is priced at £14.99 and is available from Amazon.
