Thomas & Friends Christmas Journey

Today, we stepped out of blogging hibernation to make a trip to Hamleys of Regent Street for a very worthy cause. Thomas the tank engine and friends are undertaking an epic journey this Christmas, to help the Fat Controller deliver gifts to children in hospitals all over the UK & Ireland and their journey began in London, this morning.

We hopped in a taxi, as you can see little E was super excited!!

When we arrived at Hamleys, we had exclusive access to the store for an hour before it opened to the general public. There was face painting, balloon modelling, story telling with the Fat Controller, and of course…. colouring in!!

We stuck around after the store opened to the public at Midday on a mission to get some Christmas gift inspiration. We needn't have worried, little E was very clear with what she 'Needed'. 'I need this' was her phrase du jour.
I've always loved Hamleys and as children my sister and I would beg my parents to take us there whenever we were on a shopping trip to London. My mother always allowed us to choose a small treat each and following in this tradition, little E chose something for herself and for her baby brother. She made a bee line straight for the Peppa Pig section and then chose a teething toy for Rufio.

  1. That brings back memories, Thomas was huge when my eldest was tiny, but fell out of favour by the time that my 10 year old was a tot, glad to see he is back again!
