Do you ever wonder what happens to some kids' shows and characters? It seems like we'll catch a glimpse of a new addition one day... and then it will be gone the next. Or my kids will have discovered (or rediscovered) an old standby only to have it seem to fade away into oblivion.
On the other hand, there are those shows that are classic and have entertained children for decades with their imaginative tales and adventures - they just can't seem to go wrong! And one name that definitely comes to mind as being universally-loved by boys and girls of all ages is surely Thomas & Friends.
Created by a father for his son nearly 65 years ago, Thomas the Tank Engine and his railway friends are now embarking on their ventures for families in more than 185 territories and in 30 languages. This cheeky, somewhat-fussy, #1 blue Really Useful Engine makes tracks to great destinations on the Island of Sodor and beyond and is always a little over-eager to do things that are best left to bigger and more sensible engines.
But by inviting children into his world of imagination, Thomas and his friends are able to teach timeless life lessons of discovery, friendship and cooperation right in with their entertaining stories. And, available today, March 1st, on DVD, Thomas & Friends: Pop Goes Thomas is no exception!
There are games to be played and fun to be had in this all-new collection of tales on DVD! Whether delivering a surprise of bubbling lemony goodies to a picnic, laughing along with Thomas and Percy while they play hide and seek while trying to get their work done or cheering on the Sodor football team with Emily, Thomas continues to teach the important lessons through his tales on this DVD.
Including the four fun episodes as well as cute bonus features, Thomas & Friends: Pop Goes Thomas is a great way to explore the sights and delights of Sodor. With a running time of 50 minutes, fans who love to tour the bumpy track will also appreciate that their favorite live action host, Driver Perkins, makes an appearance - an exclusive to this collection. My girls loved it!
