The other day Lauren wrote a post about Noah's new train set. This afternoon on my gmail account there was an ad for the Post Holiday Clearance Blowout! on BRIO stuff on a web site that sells a ton of the stuff. Having had nothing at all to do with this purchase, I'm blown away both by what's available and by what an investment this stuff is if your kids gets the Thomas the Tank Engine bug (thanks Nana!). Sure "Bulgy the Double-Decker Bus" seems like a steal at $6.95 on clearance, but the engine shed is pricey. Don't even get me started on the suspension bridge. I will say that this looks like an opportunity to stock up on basic track pieces at half off, so we can build a giant set that runs through the whole house. If you're pining for the Big City Engine, now's your chance.
