Thomas 75th Anniversary Box

unboxing a massive box

Mattel sent us this gift with no obligation but we had to make a video. After some initial confusion because of a letter with restrictions inside the box, we finally were able to upload this. Thank you Mattel for clarifying that because we needed to have George Carlin in the video.

Thomas and Friends 75th anniversary (Diamond) is celebrated with the box filled with some of Mattel’s recent toys, books, and memorabilia. My personal favorite is the Diamond Thomas diecast Trackmaster engine. Check out the YouTube video to see the contents

DO NOT BUY! Thomas Slimy Cargo Minis!

This is a terrible product! I bought 2 ($8 each). One was missing a pack a slime which is okay because the slime is a horrible product for a child. Gets all over everything and hard to deal with. Do not buy this horrible product from Mattel!

Thomas Wood Fail

So Mattel (Fisher Price) has come out with the new Thomas & Friends Wood – a replacement of the very popular Thomas & Friends Wooden Railway. The new designs have far fewer details than the old Wooden Railway models. The fans have been very disappointed. Not sure of the reasons for the changes, but it seems this will only further contribute to the demise of Mattel & Thomas Toys.

 

Why the change? The wooden railway line has been so popular for 25+ years. The lack of paint is very disappointing. Is the paint missing for a savings of cost? safety concern? Who know? The only good things is they did not change the magnets to the cheap plastic couplers and the faces on the characters seem good. Other than that, there is been great outrage from the fans in the short time my video has been posted.

Where will Mattel go from here?

Let’s GO Thomas

Another Thomas & Friends goodie that I 1st saw on Leokimvideo’s channel. The Let’s Go Thomas is an interactive talking train engine that is sometimes a little creepy. Eyes and mouth move. It can follow you and react to your voice.
