De Agostini publishes many different magazine series. In 2004, the company made a Thomas and Friends magazine series. Each issue focused on a certain place and had activities related to it. It would also come with a plastic character or destination and a piece of track with some activities related to that character. Once all issues were collected, the track would form a layout.
