It was in 1943 when Rev Wilbert Vere Awdry created the stories of Thomas the Tank Engine, simply to cheer up his son, Christopher who was suffering from Measles. Today, Thomas the Tank Engine is a multi-million pound franchise which covers TV series, films, books and DVD’s. The range of merchandise available spans everything from Kids Duvets to Spaghetti Shapes.
In the early 2000’s the National Autistic Society, published a survey which reported that Thomas the Tank Engine and associated characters are valuable figures to autistic children, helping them understand emotions, colour sand words. A previous study, again carried out by NAS found that children with autism and Asperger’s have a strong relationship with Thomas, much more so than any other children’s character.
Thanks to easy to understand stories, clear narration and of course, the fact that all kids love trains – has helped cement Thomas the Tank Engine as a classic and important children’s character. Not surprisingly, this fact has not passed us by, and we have worked hard to bring to market a wide range of Thomas the Tank Engine Bedding & Bedroom Accessories. So without further ado, we will highlight some of the products you can use to inexpensively theme an entire Thomas the Tank Engine Bedroom.
