Hi ya!! I have two boys both mad on TtT etc. I went on Ebay Australia and joined using the address I was going to be living at once I moved over and bought some new and second hand trains so that they were delivered as we arrived here. I told the kids they were from the 'welcome kangaroo' and they loved it. Cost a fraction of what it cost in the UK too! Happy moving - know it can be stressful with kids! Caz

Buzzy, we plan to take our two boys on Puffing Billy when we're there.

On the toy front, do you get Power Rangers, TMNT and Ben10 over there??

Where do you buy most of the kids' toys from?

Cheers

Colin

This without doubt this is the most important post put on BE

We have been to see Thomas on Stage, the real Thomas at the Forest of Dean railway.

Our lives will be so much better with this great news.

We have Toysrus in Oz. Also places like Kmart, Big W and Target all have toy departments. There is also a shop called Kids Central (in Brisbane anyway) which sells Early Learning Centre stuff. So you shouldn't have problem getting most of latest toys.

A lot of the stores have a big toy sale next month (July) which is a good time to start your Christmas shopping if you like to be organised!

Shaun The Sheep is shown here on ABC Kids TV. Quite a few of the CBeebies shows are. Shame Auntie Mabel & Pippin (Come Outside) aren't on
