Default Bob the Builder and kids toys

Hi all

Arrived in Abu Dhabi about a month ago and still finding my way around. My Wife and 1 year old son will joining me in a few months and I want to decorate my son'd bedroom with Bob the builder and Thomas the Tank engine toys/stuff before they arrive.

Does anybody know where I can find this from within the UAE or would I need to order from say Ebay etc?

Thanks.

There's a Toys R Us in the the Meena Free Port area. Might be worth trying there.

Try the ELC(Early Learning Centre) they do both. Debenhams may do bedding or BHS worth a try, good luck he is a very lucky boy.

Not exactly help, but we are moving to Qatar in a couple of months, and during our visit last October struggled to find much related to either. The Early Learning Centre and Gulf Greetings Card shops had some of the Wooden Thomas stuff, but not much. We wanted the Tomy Thomas Road and Rail set, but had no joy at all. Toys R Us in Doha was a big disappointment.

Would be really interested to find out about anything you find in UAE.
