Rev. W. Awdry originally created Thomas the Tank Engine™ as part of “The Railway Series” to cheer up his son when he was sick.
In the same spirit, Thomas & Friends™ have celebrated Christmas this year by undertaking an epic journey to help The Fat Controller deliver presents to children in hospitals across the UK and Ireland.
Along the way, The Fat Controller stopped off at Hamleys Toy Shops across the country, giving you the chance to meet him in person! Thank you to all of those who joined us for storytelling with The Fat Controller, balloons, giveaways, colouring activities and festive fun!
Make tracks to the Gallery for pictures from The Fat Controller’s visits to Hamleys Toy Shops and local hospitals!FULL STEAM AHEAD!
