My six year old son is a huge fan of the wooden Thomas & Friends range and pushed hard to have me buy him this toy. I was a little put off by the high price at first, but must say it was been a great investment. The Engine Shed is extremely well built and comes in a sturdy box which we use for storage and carrage. He has played with this many times per week since it was delivered and it has proven highly durable over several family holidays. For all fans of Thomas the Tank Engine, it is a good purchase and a welcomed addition to a child's collection.
