Little Man is a huge Thomas the Tank Engine fan. Thomas is the first thing he thinks of when he wakes up and the last thing he thinks of before he goes to bed – and most of the time in between too. He knows the characters inside out and loves anything to do with his favourite train so when Egmont asked if we’d like to review their personalised Thomas the Tank Engine – You and the Christmas Rescue book I knew Little Man would love it.
You and the Christmas Rescue is a simple book to order but has lots of personalisation options – you choose the name of the child the book is for, their friend’s name and then change the look of the main character to suit the child too.
The finished book takes around 14 days to arrive but that’s to be expected with a personalised product. It comes well packaged and we also received a Thomas and Friends certificate too – a lovely touch.
Little Man loved the book instantly. His character features on most pages and every time we said his name he said ‘Me Mummy!’ in glee at being in the book. He also loved that his sister got a couple of mentions too as well as all his favourite Thomas characters.
The You and the Christmas Rescue book is a really lovely story with full colour pages and just the right amount of text to keep a toddler – or older – entertained. Little Man loved hearing about Father Christmas’ rescue and all the trains helping – as well as his part in the story too.
This would make a wonderful gift for any Thomas fan but if your child isn’t keen on Thomas there are many other books in the range to create a personalised book perfect for any child.
The Thomas and the Christmas Rescue book has an RRP of £12.99
