My children were recently sent a copy of Thomas & Friends: King of the Railway. Both children like Thomas, but they haven't ever watched a feature length DVD before. I wasn't sure they would sit still for that long, but it turns out that they both loved it! The DVD arrived just in time for a long journey down to Wales. We set off at bedtime and I put the DVD on. The boy and the girl watched enthralled for part of the journey. When it ended, they got fidgety, eventually falling asleep at gone 9pm which never happens! I guess they were both excited. We have watched Kind of the Railway a few times since and each time they have both really enjoyed watching it and have asked to watch it again.
What they say
Join Thomas & Friends as they embark on a legendary movie adventure! The steam team's quest begins when a special guest arrives on Sodor with a big surprise and important jobs for Thomas, Percy and James. The engines meet new friends and discover suits of armour, coats of arms and legends of long-ago heroes. Then their bravery is put to test when their new friend Stephen goes missing. Will Thomas find him in time? Will the engines discover the truth about the Island of Sodor's biggest mystery? It's a crusade of knightly proportions for Thomas & Friends in this epic movie.
