My family have always been Thoms fans. Now are two year old has fallen for the little blue train. I would love for him to go . Ethan has had several ear surguries in the last two years and has been limited to what he could do. Now we are healthy and would love to spend a special day with him.

My son is a HUGE Thomas fan! He is obsessed! We DVR all the Thomas episodes…he owns countless Thomas DVD’s, Thomas PJ’s, Thomas undies, Thomas bedsheets, Thomas books (which he’s memorized) at 2.5 y.o., Thomas tracks and trains, flashlights, remote control Thomas…you name it. If it’s Thomas he loves it! If we had enough t-shirts he would insist on wearing one EVERYDAY. Oh not to forget our Thomas swim trunks and sunglasses. When we pass railroad tracks on the road he always wants to stop on them and look both ways to see if thomas is coming. When he goes to his Gpa’s house they take pennies up to squash on “thomas’ tracks”. Winning tickets to ride Thomas and meet some of the characters from Sodor would be a dream come true for him.

My son absolutely LOVE Thomas the tank engine. I Would love to get a chance for my son to meet, and have a fun fill day out with Thomas The Train. He is Three years old And watches every Thomas program he can. Every trips to the library is advantageousness for him. Because he knows a new adventure is waiting for him. Kalen has his own life size play Thomas train. Unfortunately we just relocated to Austell GA, so most of our things are still in storage. When it comes to Thomas the Engine, it brighting up his everyday smile. So I know this will be prefect.

My son Thomas just turned 4 in September. His sister Charlotte is turning 3 in January. We’ve been a Thomas family for over 2 years: trains galore, plates, lunch boxes, dvds, even took him to the Fox show… But for the past 3 years we’ve missed A day out with Thomas because we were either out of town, had out of town guests, pregnant and on bed rest or busy delivering… their little brother… whom I sure will be playing with the sets in a few months too. ;)

Jayden THOMAS, Huge THOMAS The Engine fan. Jayden has just turned 1 on September 29 and of course he had a THOMAS THE ENGINE birthday party. He wasnt walking for his birthday so I (mom)made a Thomas The Engine replica out of a box to go around his walker. He had a 3D Thomas The Engine cake with railroad crossings and traintracks for decorations, just like Sodar. Sir Topham Hat was even in attendance! We had Thomas’ theme song and movies playing at the party which Jayden danced to and screamed in excitement whenever he heard the music. His party and scrapbook would be complete if he was able to take a ride with his lifesize pal, Thomas.

My Daughter absolutely LOVE Thomas! We live in the Emory area and have several train tracks near us and she loves to listen for the trains when we are outside playing. I have seen this tour just haven’t been able to swing it. So to win tickets would make my daughters year!!!

My daughter loves Thomas, which is a little surprising, since she’s a girl. She watches the show on PBS, own several DVDs and toys. We visited the Thomas exhibit at Six Flags over GA, and took some great pics. We have never been there, and would love to go!


Johanna October 4, 2010 at 2:10 pm

We started with a simple train around the tree when my daughter was 3 months old and it went from there. Thomas, Rosie, Percy, and Toby are her favorites. Now my nephew is hooked onto Thomas as well, I think he is going for a complete set of the wooden railways.


Stacy October 4, 2010 at 12:11 pm

My 2 boys LOVE Thomas the Train! We watch Thomas daily and the boys have several trains that they play with all the time. We have wanted to do this trip the last 2 years but just haven’t been able to work it out. If we were picked for this event, it would make their year!


Christina S September 30, 2010 at 4:19 pm

My son is turning 3 the month of October and he LOVES Thomas and all his other friends! He has a ton of trains, tracks and the train table. He pretty much plays with no other toys. He is all about “Thomas the choo choo train” as he says! I know he would absolutely LOVE to go to this event. It would be an honor if you picked us for this trip. We live 3 hours away from this event, but seeing the look on my sons face if he were to go to this would be priceless and no distance to far away for mommy to drive him to. Please pick us for the trip as I know he will love it and I would really appriciate you guys here at TheMommyInsider for making my little boys Thomas dream come true! <3

my daughter is six and has always loved Thomas. We took her when she was three and she loved it. my son is about to turn two and he is obsessed with thomas. when he hears a train go by, he shouts choo choo and will stop whatever he is doing to go watch the train. he watches thomas on tv all the time. the theme for his second birthday is thomas the train.


veggiemama September 26, 2010 at 12:53 am

My son is 13 months old and he would love this!!! His grandpa would love it too. He is a big model train enthusiast. And he really enjoys teaching his grandson about all things train. So far, they have taken a train ride at Town Center Mall, but this would be the ULTIMATE surprise and a lot of fun for both of them! Hope we win!!! Thanks :)

My daughter loves trains. She started with Thomas & Percy and it grew from there. We went to ride Thomas as Six Flags, but the ride is a little disappointing. They could have done a little more with the decor instead of a view of the parking lot. We would love to have a chance to do it the right way.


Jennifer W. September 20, 2010 at 12:19 pm

My daughter LOVES Thomas! She is almost 2 (10-31) and she would love to go on a train ride for her birthday. We record all the Thomas shows and have them playing most of the day!

I have 3 year old triplets and all 3 of them are HUGE Thomas the Tank engine fans. (I have 2 boys and a girl and even our daughter loves Thomas) I made up a song to help them learn their names and once they learned their names, the kids wanted to start putting Thomas and all the friends in the song, so now they know all the names of the characters. They play with their Thomas the Tank engine train sets and love to watch Thomas on TV. We have Thomas books that we read and every real train that passes by is either Thomas or one of his friends. They will tell me where Thomas or Gordon are going (usually to the zoo or circus). My kids LOVE Thomas the Tank engine and they would LOVE to win the tickets for a Day Out with Thomas.

My children LOVE Thomas…and Percy and James! They are just enamored by them. It is the one show I can get all three of my kids to be quiet and watch. Also, we live very close to train tracks and the kids are often calling the trains that pass by Thomas!

On one other note, while my son was in the NICU, the blanket that covered his isolette was Thomas. We started him early!


Elysia Douglas September 17, 2010 at 12:07 pm

My family is becoming a Thomas the Tank Engine family due to my 2 year old’s love of Thomas. He will be 3 years old on Oct. 27 and it would be his life’s dream to meet Thomas. He has 4 pairs of Thomas pajamas, a Thomas plate and water bottle, Thomas underwear, and 2 different Thomas rail sets. He watches Thomas on PBS and Netflix EVERY DAY!!! Everything in our house is turning into a different location from the Island of Sodor. He is on a quest to find the right location for a “washdown” so Thomas can be nice and clean. It would be awesome to win a 4 pack of tickets and take him to see Thomas!
