Thomas & Friends: Muddy Matters DVD {Review & Giveaway}

Thomas & Friends logo
With the continuous arrival of new programming on television, the kids and I often come across a few shows and characters that we hadn't seen before.

While some have caught their attention and prove to be memorable, educational and entertaining, the initial appeal of others fades away pretty quickly. It's hard work to create plots and storylines that are loved by kids as well as adults!

When it comes time to look to those shows that have proven be classics and have entertained children for decades with their imaginative tales and adventures, one name that definitely comes to mind as being universally-loved by boys and girls of all ages is surely Thomas & Friends.

The #1 blue Really Useful Engine has proven that yet again with the release of Thomas & Friends: Muddy Matters.

Thomas & Friends Muddy Matters

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, train 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 working together right in with their entertaining stories.

Which is no exception with the release of Thomas & Friends: Muddy Matters, as the crew gets down and dirty — in a good way — as they accomplish their daily tasks around the Island of Sodor with cooperation, friendship and fun!

Thomas Muddy Matters

Through mud, garbage and muck, Thomas and his engine friends show that being Really Useful can be a dirty job. Fans can see James turn into the Really Muddy Engine and Thomas get showered with trash. Then Peter Sam makes a big mess trying to keep things on track as Thomas creates chaos with the crows and much, much more.

Young fans are going to want to join Thomas and his friends as they make the best of the mess in these exciting muddy and mucky adventures — it's a collection the whole family will love!

My niece has a one year old and she is very interested in drinking from cups, lol At Christmas time we were sitting in the living room and she spied her grandma's cup of pop. She raced over there, picked it up and went to take a drink and dumped the whole thing all over herself, lol It was very cold as it had ice in it, and she was shivering because of that, lol
