Thomas & Friends: The Birthday Express {Review & Giveaway}

Thomas & Friends{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, T @ The Happy Clipper!}

Lately I feel like I've had multiple conversations with moms about a certain television show that their son watches or a cast of characters that their daughter is a fan of... and, more often than not, there are other moms who have never heard of them. Is that a new one? Have they been around long? Wait, who?

Then 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.

Thomas the Tank EngineCreated 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, May 17, on DVD, Thomas & Friends: The Birthday Express is no exception!

Thomas DVDThere's a party on the Island of Sodor, and you're invited! Join Thomas the Tank Engine and all his railway pals as they celebrate the joy and surprises of birthdays in Thomas & Friends: The Birthday Express from Lionsgate and HIT Entertainment. This fully-loaded DVD also includes a bonus wooden whistle set that is sure to excite any young Thomas fan.

Including four fun episodes in this special Thomas & Friends collection, there's no doubt that birthdays always come with surprises when your engine friends are part of the celebration. Tales such as Percy safely delivering a beautifully wrapped present and Thomas encountering a mystery as he takes Sir Topham Thomas and FriendsHatt to the party are just the beginning. It's just full steam ahead for birthday fun!

With a running time of 46 minutes, everything from the episodes to the bonus features to the wooden whistle (especially the wooden whistle) make this a fun DVD to add to your collection. Kids love birthday parties and kids love Thomas, so by combining the two, it's a winning combination.

Available now in stores or online at Amazon, Thomas & Friends: The Birthday Express retails for around $16.98 and will continue to teach timeless life lessons for years to come. Which is exactly what one person will discover as well, because...

One lucky person will win a copy of Thomas & Friends:

my son HATES birthdays (usually too loud and he's very sound sensitive) but lately he's been getting into singing the song so that helps

My son is only 2, so he enjoys cake the most at birthday parties. I'm hoping to have a Thomas party for his next birthday.

We are currently planning my son's 3rd birthday party. We are doing a water themed party (sprinklers, baby pool, etc) but on his cake he wants: a tractor, grass, a bad kitty (from one of his books), and a Thomas the Train.
