This DVD is perfect timing with the dozen or so summer birthdays we’re set to attend! I love Thomas and Friends, as it teaches important life lessons such as problem solving, friendship, cooperation and discovery. Kieran loved Percy’s Parcel. She loved that he got a present (hey, what kid wouldn’t?!). She also had a great time playing “The Birthday Express” game, included as a bonus feature on the DVD, although she is a newbie to controlling the DVD remote. The game is great for practicing following directions and color and pattern recognition. I liked that there was a movie portion following the game portion, which gave Kieran a nice reward for completing the game. I liked “Double Trouble”, because it got the best laughs out of Kieran when Sir Topham Hatt had a mustache (or so she thought…I won’t ruin the surprise for you!). It was also great that this DVD came with a Wooden Train whistle.
Unwrap your favorite episodes with the Thomas and Friends collection. Birthdays always come with surprises when your engine friends are geared up for the celebration. Percy must safely deliver a beautifully wrapped present, while Thomas encounters a mystery as he takes Sir Topham Hatt to the party. Full steam ahead for birthday fun!
