Thomas the Tank Engine Playhuts-Top 3 Picks For Indoor or Outdoor Fun
For those little conductors in your life, sometimes just playing with hand held trains just isn't enough to engage their imagination at times. If you have an active child or a few children, providing a Thomas the Tank Engine Playhut for them to spend time climbing through and imagining they are traveling from one end of the country to another is an excellent option to help your child develop his creative side.
If you have a playroom, or a basement with enough space, you can set up these Thomas the Tank Engine Playhuts and your children will be set up for hours of fun no matter what the season or weather is like outside. If you live in a warm climate and have a backyard, these tents are great fun to just plop down anywhere and easily folded back up to stash away if it becomes rainy or too windy.
Here are the top picks for most children ages 3 to 9 years old.
Playhut Thomas The Tank W Caboose
This play hut also comes with a carrying bag so if you are going camping, visiting relatives or on a trip where your little one will be able to set this up, it will not take up too much space in the car. Since this is one of the bigger tents available by Thomas and Friends due to the caboose attachments, it is the best choice for those moms who have multiple children and would like something they can play in without fighting over. This choice is probably better for an outdoor set up unless you have a pretty big living room or play room and do not mind the space it can take up. Although, due to easy velcro attachments for the two cabooses, you can choose just leave them un-attached and use the engine itself. This is a sturdy tent that can endure many rambunctious children climbing all over it. It is made from thin material though so if you have any cats who like to scamper up things with their claws, you may want to keep an eye out that they do not put holes in it. Younger children may need some help in understanding how to open the "door" flaps in order to get inside and may not find it is entertaining as older children since they have yet to develop their imaginations for pretend play.
Playhut Thomas the Tank Train Engine Play Tent
This is the engine that you can buy on its own. It has instant setup due to the patented technology of the EZ twist. Other fun features for your children are the sun roof which allows them to pop it open for extra fun. The side door works just like in a real car by swinging open and there is a steering wheel and carrying case included when purchased. The material is made with a meshed, non woven nylon binding and can withstand being jumped on or banged into by active children. There is plenty of room inside for your children to set up chairs to drive the train, or to even lay down a sleeping bag and use it for overnight fun.
Playhut Thomas the Tank Mega House
This delightful little house is another of the more popular Thomas the Tank Engine Playhuts.At 5 feet by 5 feet it is large enough to hold up to six children at a time. Featuring the same EZ twist play technology as the other playsets do, this has a crawl through tunnel that can easily connect to any of the other playsets if you have the space for it. With flap door entrances making it easy to walk or crawl into the hut, both those who are just learning to get around and those who don't seem to want to stop getting around can easily come and go. Made with the same trusty and durable material, this playset can be played both indoors and outdoors without fear of damage.
Being a kid and exploring your imagination is one of the freedoms that all children should be allowed to enjoy. If you have a Thomas the Tank Engine fan in your home, he will treasure this gift for many years to come and if stored properly he may be even able to pass it along to his own children once he has grown. So, get on board and grab your child one of these Thomas the
Tank Engine Playhuts today!
