~I received a Logan & The Big Blue Engines set for the purpose of review. Opinions and stories are my own.~
A little while ago my son got really into Thomas & Friends. He saw a movie, found some books at the library and that was that. Thomas and all his friends had taken over my house. I can already hear parents out there laughing at me! It’s really no surprise. What little boy doesn’t love all those Really Useful Engines? So it was really exciting when Tot received the Logan & The Big Blue Engines Book Pack that’s on limited release. Logan was completely new to him and quickly became his favorite.
Logan is a shunter steam train that looks like a diesel. He works at the Coaling Plant and helps by attaching trucks to the big engines. In Logan & The Big Blue Engines, Logan accidentally hooks Edward and Gordon up with the wrong trucks because he couldn’t tell them apart. It’s a wonderful story that teaches children that mistakes happen, but you can always do your best to correct them and still be Really Useful too!
Tot reads this book EVERY night before bed. It’s beautifully illustrated and great for young readers.
The Limited Release Book Pack comes with the 8″x10″ storybook, Logan the shunter, a cargo car and coal cargo. You can request the Sir Topham Hatt Figure to be included for an additional cost.
There is also an Exclusive Limited Release Logan & The Big Blue Engines Set that includes:
