These may be kids toys, but that doesn't mean you can't have fun with them too. After all, it didn't stop Ringo Starr, George Carlin, Alec Baldwin, et al. Want to be the next Pierce Brosnan? Well, you better start narrating Thomas' adventures! So get your kids some toys, and let the narrating begin.
I just bought 80 piece Thomas/Brio train set for $40 bucks with a draw bridge. I guess it was a good deal.
These list prices are crazy. The Woot prices are cheaper than what I see in retail all the time, but not by that much… perhaps $2 or $3. Not a good sale, IMO.
Are these the engines that will work with the wooden tracks?
This a great sale. Thomas the Train toys rarely go on sale in stores. The list prices are comparable to the retail prices. Target.com has the same toys at a dollar or two below woot's list prices.

I used to watch Thomas back when I was a kid (ya know, back when Ringo was narrating the show) and I had a collection of the original books.
I had to Google why Henry was called a thoroughbred and I'm surprised at the backstory that actually was written for these characters (e.g. apparently Henry was built using plans for a prototype but it had several errors in it.)
If I unlock free shipping, I may have to get some for my nephew.
My son loves these! Bought some last time around and bought a few more this time. Decent price for the wooden trains. They are harder to find as the cheaper, plastic versions find their way to the local store shelves.
Love these trains... and so do the kids. I got some the last time around to help out the Easter Bunny and Santa's Elves, and now we also have extra gifts in hand for birthdays.

Hi Hi, where did you grab such a good deal?? :P

I'd like to know where you see these regularly for only $2 or $3 more than Woot's prices. They do go on sale now and then, but not at these prices. I usually see these going for the retail prices Woot is quoting.
I wonder if you're pricing a different type of train?? Maybe a smaller plastic one? If not, like I said, please clue us in on where to find these for only a couple bucks more on a regular basis.
I stocked up last time, so I think I'll pass on this woot deal.
These prices are really bad. If there wasn't shipping to consider, they'd be decent, but they certainly aren't great. You can find the wooden trains cheaper at Marshalls or TJ Maxx
The deal here is to buy more than one.
My son is obsessed with all thing Thomas. The only place I see with prices close to these are Amazon. I pretty much buy most of his trains there. We also are close to an AC Moore store. They sell Thomas & have 40% off 1 item coupons almost every week and sometimes 50% off 1 item.
These are a good deal if you spring for a couple. Some of these are close to Amazon prices but some are really quite a bit less. I did last time these were offered and got a few for the Easter basket. He will be beyond happy.
P.S. These are for the wooden tracks and the trains and wooden tracks have stood up to some extreme situations in our home. These are excellent quality. The only train that kind of didn't survive was the time I accidentally flushed Thomas down the toilet. Had to call a plumber. I was not happy. They did rescue that train and it actually didn't look bad at all but I knew where it had been so I opted to pitch it and just buy another.
