Updated on October 8, 2012


Top 5 Thomas and Friends Games

Thomas and Friends Board Games teach children while they're having fun.

Thomas and his friends are child-like characters who experience the same things that young children do.

As children get to know Thomas and his friends, they learn about relationships, they learn what is acceptable behaviour and what is not.

Children learn when it's appropriate to say thankyou and please and I'm sorry. Children learn the value of friendship and the importance of being a good listener. Children learn about the value of hard work and the meaning of leadership.
