THE FAT CONTROLLER STOPS AT HAMLEYS TOY SHOP IN LONDON
The Fat Controller is taking some time off from his duties on Sodor to visit Hamleys, The Finest Toy Shop in the World and on Sunday 10th November we got to meet him in person!
“The Reverend W. Awdry originally created Thomas the Tank Engine™ to cheer up his son when he was sick. In the same spirit, Thomas & Friends are celebrating Christmas this year by undertaking an epic journey to help The Fat Controller deliver presents to children in hospitals across the UK and Ireland. To show your support you can log in at www.Tracks4Thomas.com via Facebook or Twitter and add a piece of virtual track to Thomas & Friends’ Christmas journey.”
Join Thomas & Friends on this very special Christmas Journey and Listen to The Fat Controller tell the tales of the fun and exciting Island of Sodor, where Thomas & Friends learn the value of friendship, fair play and team work, watch some balloon modelling, get your face painted, join in on some colouring activities and more, this event is perfect for Thomas & Friends™ fans of all ages, and the whole family is invited to join the booming-voiced Fat Controller in a celebration of everything Thomas.
We had such a brilliant time at Hamleys in London and for such a fabulous cause.
The boys really enjoyed the day and really loved meeting The Fat Controller, Dusty and Rusty
Although Oliver is a huge Thomas fan he was n’t too sure on getting too close but he did enjoy watching the trains go round the track
And he posed for a little picture with his Thomas & Friends flag
And he enjoyed listening to the story from The Fat Controller
Joseph’s favourite [part of the day was getting his face painted, he chose a silver dog to match his silver trousers and dicky bow
After The Fat Controller spent his time at Hamleys spreading the word he popped into Evelinas children’s hospital with a sack full of presents for the children to cheer them up just like The Reverand W Awdry did with his son.
