Gift Idea: Thomas & Friends Sodor Search and Rescue

see more by

This is a great gift idea for any of you looking for a last minute gift this week! The Thomas & Friends Sodor Search and Rescue play set has provided hours and hours of fun in our house!

I have two girls, and it is not intentional, but we honestly do not have many traditional “boy” toys like trucks, cars or trains.

So when the folks at Mega Bloks contacted me about doing a review of one of their products, the Thomas and Friends Sodor Search and Rescue, I thought, “it’s about time we have a toy like this for the girls to enjoy!”

It is a GREAT toy, and reasonably priced at $29.99. This set would make for a great gift idea for any little one (boy OR girl) 3 and older on your list.

It comes in a handy carry case which doubles as a building platform.  I love a toy that has dual purpose, and it is great to have an easy place to store the little parts.

The set includes different accessories like opening doors, a track switch and a working crane as well as Thomas and Harold buildable characters.

It took some time, but both my girls figured out how to put it together.  I think my husband also secretly loves assembling it too.

Join the Mega Bloks Family Club to stay up to date on the latest and greatest toys for all ages.  And right now, they have a Holiday Toy Giveaway going on where you can enter to win a new toy daily! Click here for more info.

[Disclosure: I received a complimentary Thomas and Friends Sodor and Rescue play set to facilitate this review. Thank you!]

Irvine Park Railroad 2011 Christmas Train Giveaway!

see more by

It’s the season, once again for Irvine Park Railroad’s annual Christmas Train! Take your family and friends and hop aboard for an enchanting night ride through historic Irvine Regional Park to meet Santa Claus.

The train will depart every 15 minutes from the brightly-lit train station and drop passengers off at the North Pole. It truly is a totally magical event for the kids. I have tickets to give away, make sure to enter below!

For those of you who haven’t been before, Christmas Train tickets may be purchased online to ride the train at a specific date and time. When you arrive you can then get in line and board the train any time during the hour for which you purchase tickets. You can also buy tickets in person.

While waiting to board the train, there are many activities for children to enjoy in Santa’s Village located next to the train station. Prices vary per activity. They open one hour prior to when the Christmas Train runs and include:

Story Time with Mrs. Claus * Christmas Cookie Decorating * Carnival Games * Santa Claus Moon Bounce
* Christmas Coloring Corner * Picture Stands

At the North Pole, visitors may purchase coffee, hot chocolate, freshly-popped popcorn and cookies from the Elf House Snack Bar.

Visitors may take their own pictures with Santa or you may purchase a picture taken by Irvine Park Railroad. Each 5” x 7” photo will be presented with an Irvine Park Railroad border and available for pickup shortly after being taken.

After visiting with Santa, hop back aboard the train and enjoy the colorful Christmas lights and decorations, as well as the magical “Tunnel of Lights”, on the ride back to the station.
