The giveaway will run in the newspaper for one day on Saturday November 12th 2011, with redemptions available until Wednesday November 16th.

There are six Thomas & Friends characters available to collect, including Thomas, Percy, Harold, James, Bertie or Charlie. The exclusive coupons will feature in the newspaper and can be redeemed at all Toys R Us stores across the UK. As part of the promotion, a national TV campaign will also support the activity.
