Thomas & Friends Engines and Escapades

Spring 2008 DVD
Ages: 2 - 5 yrs.
DVD Price: $14.98
Review:
The latest Thomas and Friends DVD offers a series of short stories about the trains living and working on the Narrow Gauge railway on the Island of Sodor. Through the characters adventures and misadventures, they learn valuable life lessons. Stories include "Duncan Does It All" about the importance of finishing what you started, "Sir Handel In Charge" about the importance of listening, and "Cool Truckings" about the importance of being responsible. The DVD also shows two Thomas songs with the lyrics on screen for children to follow and sing along with. The DVD appears to be based on a British version of the television series and not the series that airs locally on public television. Although the format, setting and animation is virtually identical, children familiar with the Thomas series may be disappointed to see a different cast of characters in this DVD.
