My story

Growing up as an only child, my stuffed animals were such great company.  I would make up stories, have tea parties, play school, pretend they were my friends and to me, it was like they came to life and surrounded me with fun.  When I had my first son, I was able to watch Thomas trains come to life for him.  He would spend hours making up stories, having the trains talk to each other, mimicking Thomas books that we had read together and building sets he's seen in the Thomas shows we watched.  I saw how the world of Thomas toys nurtured his creativity and brought him so much excitement, and I became an even bigger Thomas fan than him.  I knew it was my mission to make sure children felt like they had company and could let their imaginations run wild!  Luckily for me, my first son taught me everything I needed to know about Thomas and now at 12 years old he helps me prepare online orders along with my 9 year old son and 4 year old daughter and my husband.  To us, Totally Thomas Town isn’t a job, it is part of our family.

Why do you sell used items?

We specialize in used items because we want to see quality Thomas products continue to be played with.  We enjoy knowing that most of our products have been loved by other spectacular children and our customers love finding pieces that aren't made anymore while saving money!  We also do our part for the environment by not only selling used products but by also reusing packaging materials and boxes. We inspect every item to ensure that they are an authentic Thomas brand in clean and good condition.  Our used items offer customers the opportunity to choose the condition of each item to fit their budget and expectations.  


We are not a big box store - we really care about customers as people and end up with long term customers - lucky us!  Check out our testimonials and you'll see what we are about.  We are so thankful for the wonderful families we have got to meet over the years that have shopped in the store, and grateful for the online customers who keep returning. We are all about relationships and happy customers. Shop in confidence as we care about you and take pride in our business - we will go the extra mile to ensure you are happy!
