Thomas & Friends TrackMaster Cranky & Flynn Save the Day!

December 29, 2011

It was SO hard to keep all these presents for Andrew a surprise this Christmas.  Andrew gets super excited when the delivery man comes and drops a package at the door, and wants to open everything, right away.  Being that most of our gifts were delivered and reviewed for my blog – it was a terrible challenge to keep them hidden from him!

A few days before Christmas I received the Fisher-Price Thomas & Friends TrackMaster Cranky & Flynn Save the Day set.


Well the set got delivered, Andrew got the slightest peek at the box – but he saw a fire truck. I put it up out of his reach.  Later, he saw the photo that I had posted on my Google + page for my Walmart shop, and immediately recognized it as the fire truck that is up in my closet – ha!


So when he opened it, he was SO excited to see it – and play with it!

It was one of the major hit toys that he got for Christmas!


This set is SO cool, because my husband (seriously) had a remote control crane on his Christmas list – and Andrew loves all things trains and fire trucks, and anything remote controlled!


This is our first ‘TrackMaster’ set.  We’ve had a few TrackMaster trains – but never the tracks.  My husband loves how these go together, and said he wouldn’t even mind switching all of our train tracks over so that we stick with specifically the TrackMaster Tracks and trains.

It’s so neat too how Andrew picked it up right away and was able to control everything on his own.  He loves playing with Cranky!DSC02218

Cranky moves in a full 360 circle – and lifts and lowers his crane, which can carry the crate that holds Flynn the fire truck.  When you land the crate down, the gates pop open and Flynn rolls out of the crate.

Also the crane has a magnetic end to it – so it can deliver ‘supplies’ around the track.

Sound awesome?  We love it!

Win It!!!

    It is so great to find an in expensive way to fix a housing problem. I have a list from the city every year as I purchased an as is home so my handicapped son would always have a place to live. (After a life support near death experience.) Well long story short finding an easy fix is amazing when you consider the alternative 🙂 Luv your kitchen by the way!

    and didn’t know who to ask.

  156. Several studies have indicated that pterostilbene may be a better option than the
    popular resveratrol because it is absorbed by the body easier with a higher bioavailability and cellular uptake.

    Keep these products in places that you are always present, such as your office.
    So, here is a review of the top five natural nutritional supplements that are available right now, and
    you have probably heard of at least two or three of them.

  158. Hello, i thiոk that i ѕaw you visited my weblog so і came to “return the favor”.Ӏ’m
    trying to find things to enhance my site!I suppose іtѕ oқ to use some of your ideas!!

  159. Hey there I am so excited I found your website, I really found you by error, while
    I was looking on Askjeeve for something else, Regardless I am here now and
    would just like to say many thanks for a incredible post and a all
    round thrilling blog (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have time to go through it all at the minute but I have bookmarked it and
    also added your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read
    more, Please do keep up the awesome jo.

  160. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and amusing, and without
    a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something that too few people are speaking intelligently
    about. I’m very happy I stumbled across this in my hunt for something relating
    to this.

  161. It’s an remarkable post designed for all the online people; they
    will obtain advantage from it I am sure.

  162. This is a good tip especially to those fresh to the blogosphere.
    Brief but very accurate information… Thank you for sharing this one.
    A must read article!

  163. Thank you a lot for sharing this with all of us
    you actually know what you are talking approximately! Bookmarked.

    Kindly also consult with my website =). We can have a link change arrangement among us

  164. I think this is among the most significant information for me.
    And i am happy studying your article. But wanna statement on few common issues, The site style is wonderful,
    the articles is in reality excellent : D. Just right activity, cheers

  165. I believe everything published was actually very logical.
    But, consider this, what if you were to write a killer post title?

    I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your blog, but suppose you added a post title that makes people want more?
    I mean Thomas & Friends TrackMaster Cranky & Flynn Save the Day!
    – Grinning Cheek to Cheek is kinda boring. You might
    look at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create post headlines to grab viewers to open the links.
    You might add a related video or a picture or two to get readers interested about what
    you’ve got to say. In my opinion, it could bring your website a little bit more interesting.

  166. Excellent blog you have here.. It’s hard to find high-quality writing like yours nowadays.
    I really appreciate individuals like you! Take care!!
