Take Along was a Thomas & Friends die-cast toy range produced by Learning Curve, essentially serving as a successor to the Ertl range. In late 2009, the range has been discontinued and sold to Mattel, who has launched a revamped version of the merchandise under their subsidiary, Fisher-Price. It was renamed Take-n-Play. The Take Along toys are still compatible with the new Take-n-Play range.
