Our Review:
It seems that most little boys love Thomas & Friends, baby G is no exception. Although I am certain that he does not understand the story line at all at his age, his eyes are definitely glued to the TV whenever his sister watches the series. If you have kids who love Thomas & Friends, you can pick up this 4 DVD pack in time for the holiday season. The one thing I like about Thomas & Friends is that the characters value friendship and they work well together. If my kids are going to watch shows, I rather that they watch something like Thomas & Friends. In this DVD collection, your kids will watch a lot of different instances when one of the characters needs help and their friends happily step in to help resolve the problem. For instance, in Creaky Cranky, Thomas' friends helped him finished getting ready for the Spring Party when Thomas could not finish the work in time. This is a great collection for gift giving.
