All aboard! Engine No. 1 has arrived with style! The new Kidkraft Thomas and Friends furniture line is sure to be a hit with preschoolers. This new, brightly colored furniture collection is made of wood, modestly priced and just the right size for growing toddlers and preschool aged children. The set pieces include a wonderful toy box, table and chair set, a step stool capable of hiding treasures and an adorable Thomas the Tank Engine bed that will fit a crib mattress. Each piece of furniture is soundly constructed and depicts Thomas the Tank Engine as he goes about his daily routine.
Thomas & Friends first arrived on the children's scene in 1946 as the stars of The Railway Series written by Rev. W. Awdry. Shortly after his introduction into popular literature, Thomas, and his friends on the Island of Sodor, became favorites of kids everywhere. Rev. W. Awdry eventually retired from writing, but in 1983, his son Christopher began writing stories for his own son Richard. In 1984 The Railway Series was given the animation treatment, and Thomas was given the lead role. In 2004 Thomas and Friends received a make-over, giving fans the face of Thomas that is well-known today.
It is this much loved Thomas that is depicted so beautifully on the Kidkraft Thomas & Friends furniture line. Kidkraft's Thomas & Friends toy box is designed for placement in a child's bedroom or playroom. The toy box is a great way to keep kids' bedrooms and playrooms organized and also doubles as a handy bench. The step-and-store stool is another great multi-purpose item that can be used to store and organize odds and ends. But it is the table and chairs set and toddler bed that are the real scene stealers of the collection. Thomas's face, train car body and railway will bring life to any room; the bright colors, scenic details and embellishments on the furniture are hard to beat.
All Kidkraft Thomas & Friends furniture pieces have a sturdy wood construction and are decorated with non-toxic, lead-free paint and materials. However, it is Thomas and his friends themselves that are the true selling points of this great children's furniture. Thomas's blue tank engine, colorful friends and red color accents will make any room fun and cheery. Their friendly, familiar faces are just the ticket for sending children on a trip to dreamland.
