I was very fortunate to be able to have my little nephew over last night, and I had a little surprise for him, we were going to watch Thomas & Friends: Full Steam Ahead 3-DVD Set. He is a huge Thomas fan and I knew he would just love this new movie. I told him about the dvd and he yelled " Thomas yay!" so I could see that he was excited. I had to get the dvd started right away.
This DVD set has 3 dvd's worth of great episodes, and a great train toy included. My nephew just loved watching these dvd's he wanted to watch it over and over again. My favorite part was the bonuses that get children to do, the train puzzle was such fun! I loved seeing my nephew try the spot the differences game, he was pretty good, he seemed to be having a blast. I would recommended this for any Thomas fan, this dvd is a must have!
This dvd would make a great gift for a Thomas fan, make sure to pick one up this holiday season. This dvd is for Children/Family/Ages 2-5.
