My Take on the DVD Set
This was a great set of Thomas the Train DVD's. My girls have loved Thomas the Train for some time. We even have gone to visit him at a few places across the State of Michigan over the years, is why I'm always looking for good collections of DVDs for my kids in this regard. What I love about these DVDs is that not only are they entertaining, but they also educate as well. The consistent theme of friendship, hard work, persistence and tenacity are all things that I can only hope my daughters can work to develop as they are getting older. My daughters love the characters and can tell you almost any of the characters that are in the series. Thus, some of our family are definitely huge fans! was great about this event was that for the price you get so much with the three DVDs and even the fun bonus toy that you receive with this set as well. All-in-all, I have to say that if you are already a fan of the series you will definitely want to pick this up for you and your family!
