Walmart partnered with bloggers for their program. As part of this program, I received compensation for my time. All opinions are my own.
Do you have a little one that loves Thomas and Friends? My three year old is a fan of all things cars, trains, and planes. Needless to say we have quite the collection of Thomas & Friends toys at home. He also loves visiting the train station at our local bookstore where he gets lost in imaginative play with other friends. But did you know about the Thomas & Friends Journey to Rewards program?

Benefits of Thomas and Friends Toys
- Growing Imaginations, Learning Life’s Lessons – Thomas & Friends storylines involve everyday ups-and-downs that show the value of friendship and teamwork, giving children plenty to think about. Through engaging scenarios and realistic details played out in bright, bold colors and captivating animation, these stories help children’s imaginations grow – and make them want to create adventures of their own.
- Friendship and cooperation go hand-in-hand. Much like children at a playground, Thomas and his friends are always interacting with each other and sharing jokes, squabbles, schemes, friendships, and rivalries. Children identify with the characters and learn about interaction, problem solving, compassion and more.
- The Benefits of Train Play – Children learn best when they’re active and engaged. While train play may seem simplistic compared to high-tech toys, trains are actually one of the most powerful developmental toys you can give a child. It’s because of the interactive way children play with them, becoming conductors of their own worlds which they control, experiment with and journey through.
- Cognitive Skills – Train play is brainy business! Fitting together track, constructing layouts, and dreaming up adventures on the Island of Sodor takes creativity, logical thinking, and planning. For Thomas’ youngest friends, learning to recognize and name colors and numbers is another part of the learning fun.
- Social Skills – Train play is full of feeling! As children act out stories from the Thomas & Friends books, TV shows or DVDs – or even dream up their own incredible adventures – they’re learning valuable lessons about teamwork, sharing and kindness, and becoming more aware of their own emotions, too.
