Ahh, another holiday movie which stars one of my daughter’s favorite cartoon stars –Thomas the Tank Engine. As soon as I took this DVD out of the mail, my daughter was clinging to me, wanting me to play the movie for her. So, after her nap last week, we sat down and watched this holiday movie. I can’t get over how this popular television series is loved by children all over the world. The opening credits are my daughter’s favorite, as she can’t stop dancing and hopping around. And, every time she hears Thomas talk or blow his whistle, she begins to wave and babble at the television. I was excited to receive and review this DVD, as I knew it would instantly become a family favorite and hit with my daughter. We all thoroughly enjoyed the DVD, and it got us in the holiday spirit. And, when the movie was over, my daughter and I had fun playing with the bonus feather, the Christmas Gift Matching Game.
So, if you have little ones at home who love Thomas and Friends, then why not pick up this holiday DVD today. It is a great way to celebrate the season and get into the festive spirit, all while enjoyable precious family time together.
