My Thoughts:

Savannah is anxiously awaiting her Day out with Thomas trip with Nana and Papa this July in North Conway, NH.  But, in the meantime, she can get her Thomas and Friends fix with this new to DVD 3 disc set.  And, for only $19.98, you can't go wrong with this purchase, as it offers over 3 hour of jam packed Thomas and Friends fun!  I received this DVD set a few days ago, but we have already watched it twice so far.  It is hard to say which of the three episodes Savannah likes best, as she can't stay seated for each of these adventures.  And, when I play the bonus feature music videos, she starts dancing and swaying to the music.  I have even found myself dancing around with her, having fun!

I have learned and seen firsthand at last year's Day out with Thomas at Edaville Railroad in Carver, MA, that boys and girls of all ages love Thomas and Friends.  This lovable and bubbly train will win your child's heart, if he hasn't already done so.  And, this 3-disc set is a great addition to your child's Thomas and Friends movie collection.

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