My Thoughts:

With our annual Day out with Thomas right around the corner, Savannah has been asking to watch more Thomas & Friends DVDs.  So, it was great to be able to watch a new DVD with year.  We received "Railway Mischief" yesterday and have already watched it two times through.  When I received this upcoming release, I was surprised to see that this DVD will be available exclusively at Walmart for only $14.98.  And, as a bonus, Thomas & Friends fans will love that this new release also includes Take-n-Play Poster inside the DVD case.  As soon as Savannah saw the poster, she asked for me to put it up on her wall in her bedroom.  

Like most other Thomas & Friends DVDs, this new release contains 5 fun-filled episodes, as well as great bonus features including a Sodor Hide and Seek Game, a catchy music video and puzzles for Thomas & Friends to enjoy.  Savannah is into puzzles right now, and couldn't stop playing the "Guess Who?" puzzle, which is part of the bonus features section.

The girls loved each and every episode included on this new release, and are only more excited about our upcoming Day Out with Thomas train ride in a few weeks. :-)

Are you going to spend the day with Thomas this year?  Yes or No -- you will want to pick up this new DVD release, available at Walmart on April 9th, for only $14.98.
