All Aboard: Thomas the Train is coming to metro Detroit, and I’m giving away FOUR tickets!

Four years ago, the hubs and I took the kid to see Thomas the Train at Greenfield Village, here in metro Detroit. Well, Thomas is back this year, larger than life, to give local kiddos the ride of their life. I’m so excited, because even though the kid doesn’t remember it (he was only 2.5), we all had an awesome time, and I can’t wait to go back!

  10. Amy L says

    My 5 year old has loved Thomas the Train his whole life, its sad to say he even tries to talk like they do with the English accent :/

  11. Carla says

    Our favortie T.V. show is Super Why. While we are HUGE Thomas the train fans (we read the books and play with Thomas and our wooden train set every chance we get) the show leaves something to be desired…

  12. says

    We have more Thomas movies than I know what to do with. Curious george and Thomas are big hits! We love James the train too bc that is my sons name! 😉

  13. Amy Frink says

    I would love to take my 4 year old to see Thomas. He adores Thomas and the trains but I can’t afford to go without your help :)

  14. julie says

    My son Jordy is 4 and is obsessed with Thomas. He watches you tube clips daily and all he wants to do is play with trains. He’d be in his glory!!!
