Thomas & Friends has always been a favorite in our household. The episodes are well thought out, written and very entertaining. I love the incorporated life lessons in Thomas & Friend episodes and this special 3 DVD set lives up to this aspect. Because of the quality of the Thomas & Friends shows as well as the built in life lessons, Thomas & Friends always receive a green light of approval as shows allowed to be watched in our household. However, I do agree with the age ranking for Thomas & Friends of ages 3 to 5. My youngest who is 5 and turning 6 soon does still watch Thomas & Friends on occasion, but it is becoming less frequently now.
I find that Thomas & Friend DVD’s affordable which is good for having them on hand for your little Thomas & Friend fan.
I am happy to announce a giveaway of one Thomas & Friends Full Steam Ahead 2 DVD Set. This giveaway is open to residents of the US who are over the age of 18 and where permitted by local laws to enter and win giveaways.
