Thomas and Friends is not just for boys.  Both my girls love Thomas, along with his engine friends. :-)  And, next month we will be heading to Essex, CT for Day out with Thomas 2013 -- our third year in row that we have spent the day with everyone's favorite blue engine. So, when we received this new DVD release the other day, it was hard to keep it from the girls, as they both couldn't wait to watch ALL five episodes in one sitting. But, before I could put the DVD on, they had to gather up their favorite Thomas and Friends toys and bring them to the living room.  I don't know about your little ones, but Savannah loves to make her interactive toys talk or make noise when she sees them on the television.

So, once everything was gathered up and in the center of the living room, Savannah gave me the green light, "Ready," as she and Arabella sat on the floor to watch this new release.  But, as soon as the theme song came on, they were up dancing and singing, and making choo choo noises. :-)

Like all Thomas and Friends episodes, the five episodes that make up this new release are filled with adventure and deal with teamwork, following directions and the importance of friendship. So, if you have a Thomas and Friends fan in your house, you will want to make a point to pick up this new DVD and add it to your child's Thomas DVD collection.  It will definitely be one Thomas DVD that will be watched over and over again, as it introduces a new engine, Stafford, and includes everyone's favorite, "Ol' Wheezy." :-)
