My Thoughts: 

Don't worry, I am not going to bore you with reviews for these titles, as I have already reviewed each in the past.  What I did want to share was how great this DVD set is, and how it would make for the perfect stocking stuffer or holiday gift for that special Thomas & Friends fan in your life. And, at only $19.98, this is a steal as you usually pay this amount for one DVD. 

This set includes 3 fun-filled Thomas & Friends movies, as well as some great bonus features, including games and music videos. There is something about Thomas & Friends that makes this series and all the products that are released based on it, a hit. From movies to even apps, kids go crazy for Thomas and his fellow engine friends. Both of my girls can name all the engines, and this theme song was one of the first songs they both learned and can sing in its entirety. :-) 

Even though I have the 3 DVD's that make up this new DVD set, it was great to receive a review copy, to have for the car, or to leave at Nana and Papa's house. Just this past weekend while out enjoying the fall weather and taking a scenic drive with the girls, we brought along this DVD set. The girls kept themselves entertained by watching Thomas & Friends, while my husband and I were able to admire the changing leaves and catch up. And, when the girls went to visit Nana and Papa on Monday, Savannah was quick to pack this DVD set to share with them. :-) So, with the holidays fast approaching, why not pick up a copy of this DVD Set? It will provide hours of traintastic fun and adventure for that special Thomas & Friends fan in your life. And, like I said, it is a steal at only $19.98.
