Thomas & Friends™ steams into the Malaysia Book of Records with the Largest Thomas & Friends™ Diorama. The impressive over 50 square metres display – built with the newly launched Thomas & Friends™ TrackMaster™ – will be at the Ground Floor Centre Court, Old Wing at 1 Utama Shopping Centre from 25 May to 10 June 2019. If you’re thinking of embarking on an adventure with your children this school holidays, visit Thomas’ Holiday Adventure for a day of entertainment and adventure.
“With some huffing and puffing we’ve built the largest Thomas & Friends™ diorama with the Thomas & Friends™ TrackMaster™ sets, making our mark in the Malaysia Book of Records. With this achievement, we look to continue stirring children’s imaginations on the bigger world around them through the wonder and awe of trains. We hope that all little engineers nationwide will learn the importance of friendship and teamwork with Thomas on their adventure through the wonders of childhood,” said Ho Shu Ting, Marketing Manager for Infant & Pre-School at Mattel Southeast Asia Pte. Ltd. (Mattel).
The record-breaking diorama was made possible with the launch of the new Thomas & Friends™ TrackMaster™. The brand-new range features battery-operated track systems with adaptable, connected tracks, allowing trackbuilders to mix-and-match multiple box sets into one large, connected world. Thomas & Friends™ TrackMaster™ looks to encourage creativity and inspire fans to create their very own world of Thomas, with new engines, new tracks, and new innovations planned as additions to the existing line-up yearly.
Recently celebrating his 74th birthday, Thomas has been entertaining children worldwide from the island of Sodor. With Thomas & Friends™ TrackMaster™, the new steam team (Thomas, Percy, James, Gordon, Nia, Rebecca, and Emily) will continue the momentum set by Thomas’ Global Adventures, ensuring inclusivity and speaking to a broader audience globally.
In conjunction with his recent birthday, Thomas is inviting fans to discover the largest Thomas & Friends™ diorama and see the Thomas & Friends™ TrackMaster™ in action at 1 Utama Shopping Centre. From 10AM to 10PM, between 25 May and 10 June 2019, kids can meet and go on a ride with life-sized replicas of Thomas and his friends, experience the unique glow-in-the-dark tunnel, and watch as Thomas races around the world in the record-breaking diorama.
Other than the roadshow, fans across Malaysia can get their very own Thomas & Friends™ TrackMaster™ sets at major toy retailers, departmental stores, and e-commerce platforms.
