My Thoughts:

This DVD collection contains 4 of the most popular Thomas and Friends episodes, this according to my 16 month old daughter, who couldn’t get enough of each, and spent half the show dancing and swaying, along with waving and babbling to Thomas and friends.  She is a tough critic, and usually it is hard to keep her attention, but once this DVD was playing, she was entertained and engaged from start to finish.  And, since watching it the first time over the weekend, she continues to ask me to put it on again for her to watch.

So, if you have a Thomas and Friends fan at home, you definitely need to pick up the DVD set and add it to their collection.

Disclosure:  I was sent a copy of this DVD in order to write up an honest review.  The views above are mine and mine alone.
