When it comes to the children's shows that have entertained children for decades with their imaginative tales and adventures, there are a few that immediately come to my mind. After all, some of the characters that I knew and loved as a child are ones that my girls are still watching today and that always strikes me as such a testament to the thought and ideas that went into making such a popular and long-running show!

One name that comes to mind as a part of that list and has always been universally-loved by boys and girls of all ages is surely Thomas & Friends, proved once again with their release of Thomas & Friends: Engine Friends.

Thomas & Friends Engine Friends
