Our Experience
B is a train FANATIC, and Thomas & Friends is easily his absolute favorite show of all time! He was totally jazzed when we all sat down to watch Thomas & Friends: The Lion of  Sodor. The delightful storyline to all 4 stories, and the live (the rest of the storyline is animated) station keeper who prefaces the stories captivated both B & the Princess. I have to say, I actually got into the stories as well, and I absolutely LOVE the CG animation! B & the princess especially enjoyed "Time for a story" and the "Lion of Sodor episodes.

As a mom I'm always excited to introduce my children to what I like to call "programs with a purpose".....and Thomas & Friends is definitely a program with a purpose! There's always a moral to the story line on Thomas & Friends; in The Lion of Sodor DVD B and the princess learned the importance of patience, kindness, & following direction. We all really enjoyed The Lion of Sodor, it would make the PERFECT Stocking Stuffer this Holiday Season!
