  • A medicore season 9 story. But not my favorite.

    There is a new toy shop at the big station. And Thomas is hoping to take the children to the grand opening but Emily is given that job. Soon Thomas collects the toys from the factory and the children. I thought this episode was too sugar-coated. There is more emphasis on children than before, At the grand opening all the engines are there when they should be working. And why does Thomas worry that the children won't get what they want, This was not what Wilbert Awdry had in mind; There really is too much focus on Thomas who has been hogging the spotlight.moreless
  • Toys, toys, toys! Thomas likes toys, and so do we!

    Thomas and the Toy Shop, another great episode of Season 9. (In my opinion.) Thomas gets excited when a toy shop is opening at Knapford. He gets the task to take the children when Emily breaks down. But Henry can't deliver the toys, (Because Cranky said a crate slipped off his hook.) so Thomas volunteers to take the toys as well.

    But it proves too much when he comes to Gordon's Hill and slides back down to the bottom. But thankfully, Henry comes along and helps out by taking the toys to Knapford, and Thomas gets the children to the Grand Opening just in time, and the celebration's a blast!

    So, all in all, great episode. Henry plays a fairly decent role, Cranky speaks, as well as Annie and Clarabel, and the toy shop and factory are very impressive. So, 8 out of 10 for this one.moreless
  • Basic season nine episode.

    A new toy shop is opening at Knapford Station, and all the engines are helping out with the preparations. But throughout the day, there are quite a few incidents that threaten to delay the opening of the toy store. But Thomas saves the day again and everything runs on time.

    We all know that season nine, however bad, was a major improvement from the disasterous eighth season. And while this particular story wasn't that great, I would watch it over any story from the last season. I would have liked the story to be a little less dramatic as well. Since when is a new toy shop a priority job on the railway? I think the kids could have waited until morning to go there anyway. It really wasn't the emergency that Hit made it out to be.moreless
