Take-n-Play Thomas’ Shark Exhibit
Thomas has a special delivery for the Sodor Aquarium! Thomas goes through the exhibit entryway, designed to look like a giant shark mouth, and right into an exciting adventure. Once inside, he picks up a shark from the holding tank then races to deliver it to the display tank. In this new playset, from Thomas and Friends, help Thomas save the day at the Sodor Aquarium. As Thomas approaches the aquarium, he sees the giant shark blocking the entrance. Thomas speeds through and down the ramp as the shark head comes chomping back down. As Thomas chuffs past the shark tank, the shark swims down into Thomas' fish tank cargo car. Thomas can then pick up his special cargo. The shark is then safely transported to the display tank for all to enjoy.
Fast-Paced Fun in a Daring Adventure
Thomas’ Shark Exhibit is a Take-n-Play portable fold-out railway playset that combines the fun of train play with kids’ fascination with sharks. Steer the die-cast metal Thomas through the exhibit entryway. As Thomas enters the exhibit he is sent rolling down the tracks. As he passes by Thomas activates the “shark drop”, which releases the creature from its holding tank and into Thomas’ cargo car. From there, children can steer Thomas forward to make his “special delivery” for the aquarium display case.
Laughing, Learning, Exploring!
The Thomas & Friends Thomas’ Shark Exhibit promotes the development of your child’s fine motor skills as he handles and manipulates Thomas, while gross motor skills are encouraged through the use of the lever that opens the big shark mouth. In addition, his imagination and creativity are promoted as he creates a number of scenarios of his own making at the Shark Exhibit.
The Take-n-Play Thomas’ Shark Exhibit features a fold-out track, a die-cast metal Thomas engine and the “Shark” cargo. This playset includes the shark-themed exhibit entrance and tank. The set is recommended for ages 3 years and up.
1 x Playset; 1 x Diecast Engine; 1 x Cargo cart

A: Not work
B: Not really match the Thomas and Friends theme (This is not so bad tbh but better design could've brought it in line)
C: Not really match up with other Take'n'play items you might already have (Physically not thematically)
D:It is just plain old flimsy.
It's odd, operationally you're meant to put a Thomas or other similarly sized TnP train and drop them through the track that runs through the sharks mouth so that it can run down the two ramps, which in turn, will knock a little blue shark from a shelf into a carriage.
Half the time the Thomas provided with the set will not make it to the bottom of the track without falling off the side because the ramps mostly never line up for longer than two seconds.
Often the little shark won't make it into the carriage provided and almost annoying of all, the carriage doesn't even have wheels! Nor does it have a connecting magnet like most other pieces, it's inserted so that you can wedge the normal magnet from your engine into it and it can hover above the tracks so that its lack of functioning wheels can be compensated for by having it float over the tracks.
It's odd, it's like it was designed by someone who had no idea what the appeal in train sets is. There's no way to link the track that leads through the sharks mouth to anything else, any train has to magically get up there, maybe Harold or cranky lifts them up there... worst of all it is provided with a carriage with just plastic moulded wheels that can't turn, on a train set!Read more ›
It doesn't trigger the imagination quite in the way that an adaptable set can, but it's a convenient and well designed little toy that folds away easily when you don't want it around! My son not only loves playing with it (when he's bored of the Aquarium idea it becomes a tunnel, sometimes part of the Blue Mountain Quarry- so we don't need to buy that then!) but he loves that he can fold it away and carry it around with him as it's not too heavy.
In terms of comments regarding the track being flimsy or not lining up, it's not hard to adjust it- it's a folding play set, it's going to have a few problems like that but it's not a big deal.
As for a comment I read about logic regarding how the trains get to the starting point... this is a toy based around a group of engines with faces that talk. I think this is a great toy, it's not the most inspired of the range (it's the only one we own) and the price fluctuates a lot which must be frustrating, I'd probably have chosen a more 'traditional' set myself, like a station or quarry, but the shark is appealing of course.
The only real disappointment about these sets, and the thing that puts me off buying them, is that the majority of them come with a Thomas train supplied. Other unique characters would make a great selling point, and probably encourage more purchases.Read more ›
