Thomas & Friends is a very popular television show amongst toddlers and preschool aged kids. As a result, Thomas and his locomotive friends have been available for decades as wooden and constructible train sets, proudly displayed on train tables everywhere from museums, preschools, daycares, libraries and living rooms.
So, in this day and age, why wouldn't Thomas the Train be featured in different iPad apps and toy accessories? Discovery Bay Games has launched a fun new Thomas the Train game: Steam Team Station (compare prices).
The iPad is placed in Steam Team Station, and the free app is downloaded. In 3 different types of games preschool aged children (3-5) are asked to race around the room to locate Thomas or one of his engine friends, and return it back to the special slot inside Team Steam Station. Not only is this activity great for Thomas the Train enthusiasts, it's a fun way for kids to "blow off their own steam" during some inclement weather.
