HELP! If anyone else finds this offensive let me know, or email the compnay, maybe then we'll get results! On the thomas the train web site there are large advertisements for for vimax, a drug for penis enlargement! I am not a conservative person, but when my two year old wanted to see sir topham hatt, I didn't think I"d be showing him how to "surprise her with a larger penis!" I emailed them via the contact us portion of the web site and didn't even get a response! HELP!

Hi Nancy,  I clicked on the link you provided and the advertisement I see is about shirts for kids. Is it on the home page? Are you clicking on a certain pages/links within the site or games once you are there? Are you sure that you do not have what is called a 'cookie' on your computer or something simular that is now in your computer, from the first time you went there and the advertisements came up? This could explain why you are seeing this and I am not. Just a thought.

I had a similar thing happen on cartoon network.  I emailed them,and they did email me back -- the ad was malware or something like that hijacking their ad space and they removed it.  Maybe the same thing happened there.

That is ridiculous. Put the link up and I think we all can help in writing the company...They should find a different sponser!!!!

They were on the Bob the Builder website too, they've since took them down.

Hey Nancy...I definitely back you up on this! Although my 6.5 yr old little boy doesn't watch Thomas the Train much anymore, I would be totally offended for him to see an advertisement on a penis enlargement...and he knows about his penis (what boy doesn't...ha ha ha). How could either company allow this to happen where children are concerned! Let me know how I can help! Jill Phillips

hi there all. sorry, I am corrected, it does redirect you to thomasandfriends.com. I just checked and the ads are still there! one on top and another on the side when you open games. I also tried contacting learning curve, with no luck... what can I do?





Hi Nancy, I tried the site and I clicked on the games for thomas. I think what would help all of us is if you can give us a step by step of what your doing and what happens....after you have entered the website address and hit enter. I just tried it and have not had it happened to me. I would like to help if I can. You say, 'it does redirect you TO thomasandfriends.com' from where is it redirecting you?

Hi Nancy,
I had the same thing happen to me and my grandson, we were on a kids site (I think National Geographic Kids) and were signing on for play a game and porno (I mean the bad stuff....) came on, it was a shocker, I emailed the company and got no response, so I decided that my grandson could not go on the internet anymore, even with an adult. We do have control.... don't visit the sites! (and tell everyone you know to boycott the site)

I tried the site you posted and I was automatically redirected to this one: www.thomasandfriends.com/usa/index.asp?origref=
I tried the game section and nothing more than Barney shits advertisements like the other post said. My guess is that they DID read your e mail and took off the penis adds and Thank God! Thanks for being proactive!

I went to the site you listed, and there were no ads for penis enlargement. Just Barney sweatshirts... if I saw it on there I'd definitely find it offensive and email them, but I don't see anything inappropriate.
