Thomas & Friends and Their New Friends


For years the twins have loved personalized storybooks which includes them in the plot. Always playing and imagining out the story, they revel in the chance to actually BE included and make their imagination a reality.

I know that once they start reading for themselves this won’t change either. Isabelle, at 8, still has and loves the personalized books that feature her. Yet, the process for personalized books is usually through ordering and waiting for it to arrive. And then you read the same book over and over. And over.

Not anymore!

Mattel is excited to announce some new members to the family, Thomas & Friends! To celebrate and welcome Thomas, Percy, Gordon and all their friends under the brand umbrella, there’s a new website for you to check out with your little conductors, Open a World of Imagination.


On the site, under the tab My StoryBook, is a personalized and interactive Thomas & Friends E-Story.

All you have to do is choose your book and enter your child’s name {and the name of a family member or a friend in the case of one of the books}. Then, a personalized story is created instantly.

Best of all, you don’t have to sign up, register or do a little e-dance to get the story. On the Open a World of Imagination website you will be reading a personalized story in seconds.

I really like this, since you could literally load the personalized book on a tablet in the same time it takes for them to grab their favorite stuffie and hop into bed.

Plus, new books are added each month, monotony solved!

The site is also useful to get Thomas & Friends product information {handy for making that gifting wish-list} and contests as well, such a great resource to bookmark and visit often.
