Thomas & Friends: Merry Christmas, Thomas! DVD {Review & Giveaway}

Thomas & Friends logo{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, degood!}

Although part of me doesn't want to admit that the holiday season is fast approaching, another part of me knows that it's time to start planning so that I'm not left at the last minute like I usually am.

This year, one easy way to incorporate a character that has entertained children for decades with imaginative tales and adventures has been made clear thanks to the much-loved Thomas & Friends and the release of Thomas & Friends: Merry Christmas, Thomas!

Merry Christmas, Thomas DVDCreated by a father for his son over 65 years ago, today Thomas the Tank Engine is enjoyed by families in more than 185 territories and in 30 languages. The #1 blue engine and his friends invite children to enter a world of imagination through the tracks of a train and the words of a story and they are able to embark on adventures with their engine friends while experiencing timeless life lessons of discovery, friendship and cooperation.

I always appreciate that Thomas is a character that manages to entertain while also promoting the attributes that I want my children to learn as they grow!

In this all-new animated adventure, children are invited to come ho-ho-home to the Island of Sodor with Thomas and his engine friends for Thomas and Friends: Merry Christmas, Thomas! Available now on DVD, Digital Download and On Demand from Lionsgate and HIT Entertainment this tale is just right for getting into the holiday spirit.

Thomas and FriendsIt is easy to join in the festive fun as Thomas, Percy, Gordon and the other engines light up the tracks in this magical Christmas special. From helping Thomas find the grandest tree on Sodor to joining the Logging Locos as they sing the Misty Island Snow Song in the hope of a winter wonderland, the entertainment never ends.

Then, as the snowflakes fall, Gordon, Mavis, and Percy will take viewers to the Steamworks for a special surprise party. With four episodes included in this collection, 'tis the season for holiday magic with Thomas & Friends:
  • Let It Snow
  • Surprise, Surprise
  • Percy and the Snowman
  • Tree Trouble
Along with the 50 minutes of action-packed fun, this DVD includes a fun DVD bonus feature that kids are sure to want to play again and again:
  • The Christmas Gift Matching Game
Thomas the trainRetailing for $14.98, (or $10.99 on Amazon), Thomas & Friends: Merry Christmas, Thomas! is available now and would make a great gift for any young fan. This season invite them to climb aboard for adventures and cheer as their favorite engines prepare for a festive celebration!

And, thanks to the generosity of Lionsgate and HIT Entertainment, one person will be able to give the gift of Thomas, because...

One lucky person will win a copy of Thomas & Friends:
Merry Christmas, Thomas!
on DVD!

I am seriously cutting back for Christmas so I have not started yet. I want to plan out exactly what to get the kids and not just throw in a lot of extras!
Thanks for the giveaway, this would be a great gift for my 3 year old!
