It is such a novelty having a little boy in the house after having girls so it was inevitable that I would want lots of boy themed items for his room. I was offered a Thomas & Friends picture frame to review from Portmeirion. I didn’t even know until then that they sold baby gifts.
The picture frame arrived very quickly and was well packaged with polystyrene walls that it say in stopping it moving about. The box is decorated with Thomas the Tank Engine on the front and his friends around the sides.
When I opened the box and got the picture frame out I found that the picture frame was ceramic with Thomas the Tank Engine being 3D as well as the puffs of smoke from his funnel.
It is not something I would let my son play with as it is breakable but it will sit in his bedroom with a photo of me and him when he was first born and take pride of place in the room.
It does not seem to fit a standard photo (6” x 4”) as the slot measures 5 ¾” x just under 3 ½”. I have not printed off the photo I want to use but when I do I can cut it down to size so it is not a problem. It is very easy to add the photo into it though, just push the cover lock down or up and it pulls open like a door.
Over all I think the Thomas & Friends Picture Frame is absolutely gorgeous, it is timeless, beautifully decorated and would make the perfect ideal birthday, baby shower, new baby or christening gift for a little boy. It is priced at a reasonable £13.50 and is available from the Portmeirion website now.
