Someday I hope that my children will look back and think that I did nice things for them. Whether that is the fun outings that we took, the entertaining games that we played, the crafts that we did together or even just snuggling on the couch - it's nice to think that they will have good memories.
What I won't have done? Created a worldwide phenomenon that is enjoyed by families in more than 185 territories and in 30 languages like the father who invented Thomas the Tank Engine for his son 65 years ago.
Let me tell you, that's a lot to live up to in terms of good parenting.
For now, I'll just stick with bringing the love and excitement of the #1 blue engine and his friends home with great DVDs like Thomas & Friends: Thomas in Charge.
As Thomas and his friends invite children to enter a world of imagination through the tracks of a train and the words of a story, viewers are able to embark on adventures with their engine friends while experiencing timeless life lessons of discovery, friendship and cooperation.
Life on the Island of Sodor is always full of activity so all aboard for fun in Thomas & Friends: Thomas in Charge on DVD, Digital Download and On Demand from Lionsgate and HIT Entertainment. This collection is sure to delight children as Thomas and the Steam Team embark on four new exciting adventures. It's always full steam ahead as the stories roll along and suspense builds at every turn in these tales, featuring stunning CG animation and never-before-seen content.
Episodes included in Thomas & Friends: Thomas in Charge include:
- Thomas in Charge
- Henry’s Good Deeds
- O The Indignity
- A Blooming Mess
- "Thomas' Track Trivia" Game (DVD Bonus Feature)
As well as my kids enjoying the four great new episodes of Thomas and all his friends on this DVD, I always appreciate that Thomas & Friends focuses on lessons such as working together, friendship and learning through exploration. The CG animation included is bright and colorful and makes watching this 48-minute disc a real treat.
