My Take on the DVD
My kids have been fans of Thomas for a long time, and this set provides the fan with a plethora of great episodes to choose from that are all very different from each other. On top of this, you have a good 149 minutes of great episodes that continue to teach meaningful messages to the viewer on things like friendship, decision making, and so much more. As a parent I am always looking for role models that my kids can look up to, and this series, I believe, provides them. Although the trains d not always make the right decisions at first, they always do in the end and they learn along the way which is the way in which life works too. This was a great DVD set that I would highly recommend to all!
