I liked trains as a little kid.  I really did.  I wasn’t crazy into them, didn’t know everything about trains or all the different cars or anything like that.  I do know the difference between wide gauge and narrow gauge (the reason that a train on the tracks sounds different in England than it does in America), but a whole lot of specifics elude me.  But I do like the idea of trains.  If your kids happen to like trains, there is now something on DVD that they are sure to enjoy.

Starting this March 4th, now available on DVD from HIT Entertainment and 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment, is the latest collection of episodes from everyone’s favorite train and his friends.  That’s right, Thomas & Friends – Engines and Escapades is now available to take home and watch with your children whenever the train-related whim strikes.

This disc contains six episodes of adventure and fun on the island of Sodor.  Episode One is “Duncan Does It All.”  In this episode, Duncan learns a great lesson about keeping your word.  Episode Two is “Sir Handel In Charge.”  In this episode, Sir Handel learns about how important it is to listen to other people.  Episode Three is “Cool Truckings.”  In this episode, the trains learn all about driving in winter and the importance of safety and responsibility.  Episode Four is “Ding-A-Ling.”  In this episode, the trains learn about the joys of recycling.  Episode Five is “Skarloey Storms Through.”  In this episode, engine Skarloey learns to overcome his fears.  Episode Six is “Wash Behind Your Buffers.”  In this episode, Madge is back and responsible for getting the trains all washed up, but when they get dirty on the way to the fair, they all have to find another way.

As a first for the Thomas & Friends DVDs which I have seen, this one does include a special feature.  That special feature is a bonus episode of Fireman Sam – “Fiery Finale.”

This show is both greatly enjoyable and informative.  Your children will learn valuable lessons about teamwork, patience, sharing, and responsibility.  They will also learn all about trains.  And, let’s not forget, they will also have an absolute load of train-related fun!

Thomas & Friends have always provided wonderful entertainment to children of all ages.  They can continue to do the same for your children.

HIT Entertainment is one of the world’s leading independent children’s entertainment producers and has teamed up with 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment to release a whole set of child content and themed DVD boxed sets.
