Sorry - missed the Thomas bit!

Next have some or bed companies like Flexa, but not TTTE though, maybe toys r us ?

that flexa looks fab, but a bit more than I wanted to pay at the mo. althou might just hold off until next month and get a few bits, althou he's got ttte in his room. lol.

have looked on ebay pip - but none I really liked.

DHW - yeah the under the bed type to disguise our rubbish make it tidy.

Could you get a popup tent that would fit underneath?

I've seen those in Thomas Tank engine.

Otherwise, Thuka do a fairly plain blue one. You could sew some trains onto it cut out from fabric.

ooorrr, buy some Thomas curtains/fabric and make your ownsmile

ds' (Thuka ones) are attached with the sort of stretchy plastic tube used to attach net curtains which thread through a channel in the top of the curtain. A hook at each end attaches to a ring on each leg (plus a hook half way along the long side of the bed).

So they can be openned and closed along the plastic tube/rod, iyswim.

yeah I think that's what i'm going to have to do, ho hum, least it will all match, (am a bit anal about matching things at the mo as I've until now not had the money to buy him new matching stuff incl the paint & boarder etc.
