Emily the old-fashioned engine, May 17, 2005
By 

This review is from: Thomas And Friends Wooden Railway – Emily (Toy)

If your child enjoys acting out the Thomas & Friends series, then they should know that Emily is one of the friendlier engines. She is an old-fashioned engine, with large inner wheels. She is the first female steam engine, apart from Lady, who only appeared in the Thomas & The Magic Railroad movie. She was given 2 green coaches after saving Oliver and Toad when they were stuck on the tracks. Before she had her coaches, she borrowed Annie and Clarabelle from Thomas, which made all the other engines sad.

Emily was just released last year in “Emily’s New Coaches” and already, she has a major role, mainly because Thomas & Friends doesn’t show female engines very often. I have recommended that Learning Curve sells Emily’s coaches, because I don’t think Thomas will approve of Emily always taking Annie & Clarabelle!

Wooden vs. Die-cast Characters, June 4, 2007

This review is from: Thomas And Friends Wooden Railway – Emily (Toy)

Some reviewers are confused between the wooden and die cast characters. The wooden ones ARE expensive yet well constructed. I had reservations letting my son play with them when he was only 17 months but one mother told me, “you can drive your car over these and they’ll be just fine.” So at 18 months, we bought a few of the 18 month appropriate toys–push heads and pull train– and harold the helicopter. Then we bought a few dvds with the free wooden toys. Then we started buying a few of the individual wooden characters as he became more familiar with their roles in the stories.

We have not bought any die cast because they haven’t received the same great reviews as the wooden toys. They are NOT the same size. They do NOT fit on the tracks. They are marketed as “on the go/take along” perhaps as a cheaper alternative to the “real wooden toy”. The fact that they are metal made me steer clear of them. They didn’t seem as safe as the wooden versions.

Some of the reviews give the wooden Emily a bad score but they refer to the diecast toy as not fitting. So it’s not the same character and if you want them to be compatible with all the different tracks, you’ll have to invest in the wooden product. They are expensive but from what i understand, not as much as other train collections.

The educational value is amazing. I was determined to only purchase the dvd/free toy combination until I realized my son knew all their names, the train vocabulary “buffers/domes/etc…” And he simply adores them. To compensate for the cost of the real wooden toys, we simply don’t buy all the tracks and stations. The world is his track and should develop his imagination just as well as having all the different play tables.

Sweet Emily, May 23, 2006
This review is from: Thomas And Friends Wooden Railway – Emily (Toy)

Emily is one of the friendly engines in the Thomas and Friends Wooden Railway. She has a pleasant smile on her face and comes with a coal tender. My little boy is in Love with Emily but frequently calls her “La La”. The paint is durable and the plastic pieces are minimal and will be great addition to your Thomas collocation.
