Add the shiniest engine on Sodor to your collection with the Thomas & Friends Take-n-Play - Diecast James model.

We have a number of these engines for my son's Thomas Take and Play (or Take Along) set. James comes with his coal tender, which attaches magnetically to the back of James (as do the other engines and rolling stock in the set). The die cast engine is well built, with toddlers and pre-schoolers in mind, and will withstand a fair bit of abuse with minimal chipping. As such, they have excellent second hand value. The name of the character is imprinted on the bottom, and the magnets are integral to the toy, making them very safe for little ones. The face is well detailed and the toy gives an accurate representation of the character overall. Great build quality and good detail make this a winner.
We bought the take and play Tidmouth Sheds set so these trains are to go with it. My two year old daughter adores the trains and set so much. They are good quality. The sets are not big so expect small trains.
A tender engine and one of the original characters from the Thomas the tank engine stories and so a must for every collection, along with Gordon, Henry, Edward, Percy, Duck, Toby, Donald and Douglas as well as Thomas of course!
