Worlds Apart Thomas the Tank Engine Pop Up Tent – Review & Giveaway

Worlds Apart recently sent us a Thomas the tank engine pop up play tent to review. He took one look at it and declared it was “My House”. Thankfully, with a very impatient little boy bouncing within an inch of the box, it required no assembly whatsoever other that slipping a plastic rod into the roof bit. And we were ready to go!

The pop up tent is perfect for a toddler child. It is durable, very very light and safe even if knocked over. With the bright colours and characters painted all around the tent it provides a lot of imaginative fun for toddlers and its been an instant hit in our house.

Little Z and my niece both tumbled around in it, rode it around my mums living room pretending it was a train and requested tickets from each of us, then rode around again and made us watch. Even with both pulling and pushing it for a fair bit it bounced straight back into shape and stands firmly and neatly without ever looking tatty or like its about to collapse. In toddler play world this is brilliant!

Its been played with regularly day in, day out and its easily portable and can be packed back into its box with ease. It does take up a bit of space when fully up but can be put away very easily and doesn’t need any kind of assembling so is perfect for someone that like me that is not very good at putting things together. Actually, the rod comes in two halves and has to be slotted into each other but this is relatively straightforward even for a DIY-phobic like me.

I think it is a perfect play tent for any little toddler that has reached the imaginative play stage or who likes Thomas the Tank engine. Its big enough for a couple of toddlers to sit and play in it, or as in our case, drag it around the house.

  1. We went to see Thomas the Tank Engine in Llangollen last week. Paid a fortune for the tickets only for CK to shout ‘I’m bored’ after approximately 2 minutes and 20 seconds. I need to win this to make me feel less pained by it. Thomas is not in my good books at the moment.

  2. I just can’t believe my eyes,
    I would SO love to win this great prize!
    My kids love me making them tents,
    but they’re getting more hard to invent!
    I use cushions and blankets and sheets
    but the whole thing just doesn’t seem complete,
    and as my kids all love their Thomas & trains,
    this prize would be amazing to gain!
    So thank you so much for the chance,
    and If we win, we’ll all do a dance!

  3. It’s my daughters 3rd birthday soon. She loves Thomas and this would be perfect for her to wake up to. Love love love!

  4. What a wonderful toy. My 2 year old nephew would just love it. He is a Thomas the Tank Engine fan. He knows all the engines names, it has been a great tool for his speech. He would likely use the Thomas the Tank Engine tent as a station for passengers for his Thomas the Tank Engine trains. He usually uses his jelly babies as passengers going on holiday. His imagination is being shared and enjoyed by his family. Especially as he is more verbal, and his speech is becoming clearer.

  5. My little man would LOVE this… he’s a bit obsessed with thomas since we visited thomas land a few weeks ago

  6. We’ve been thinking about getting a play tent for a while – can’t believe I didn’t realise there was a Thomas one! Sounds great! πŸ™‚

  7. I think The Thomas the Tank Engine Pop up play tent is great, my Grandson would play for hours in it,he would love it.

  8. Great prize, ideal for all thomas fans like my kids, even better that it can be played with inside as well as outside, especially useful due to British summers!

  9. My little boy said to me the other day that he wished his name was Thomas too – it’s not, it’s William but how was I meant to know I’d have a son who was mad about trains, if I’d know I might have considered calling him Thomas. Children are funny!

  10. Id love to win this to give as a xmas gift for my nephew.. he loves thomas so he would love his auntie shelley if she appeared with this.. πŸ˜‰

  11. My son would adore this! He’s slightly obsessed Ε΅ith Thomas at the moment! The tent would give him a prefect place to read his Thomas books!

  12. I’d love to win this for my grandson. My son has always loved Thomas ( I still buy him a Thomas card every birthday and he’s 27) and i hope he will pass that love onto his son.

  13. Would love to win this for my grandsons, it would keep them out of mischief when they come round to my house πŸ™‚ My three daughters were fans of Thomas the Tank Engine when they were little (probably still are!!) and now my grandsons are too.

    Have followed and tweeted also. @glamrockLinda

  14. This would be perfect for my son to take over to his grandparents as he already calls his grumpy the ‘fat controller’!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  15. My littlest dude loves Thomas – all supermarket vouchers have been spent on Thomasland this summer – a tent would help extend the experience and give us chance to clock the points up for our next visit!

  16. This looks fab, years ago I had a little wendy house similar in size, however it took so long to put up with the all the poles, this is just great and looks so easy and my litrtle boy would love this

  17. In the last two weeks my little boy has been on two old-fashioned steam trains so he’s pretty much obsessed by anything railway-related. A Thomas tent would be very much appreciated in our house.

  18. Our first grandson who is now four is Thomas tank engine mad,in fact hes obsessed!What a fantastic looking Prize!!

  19. My 20 Month old has recently become obsessed with Thomas, What he calls NeeNee ( repeated times 1000). So this would be perfect for him πŸ™‚

  20. I have a little man who is thomas crazy. He would love to spend many happy hours in this tent. It’s fab as it’s small enough to put up in the livingroom when it’s raining outside.xx
