Thomas & Friends The Christmas Engines DVD : Review

Are you starting to get into the Christmas mood now? I know we are here, my kids really enjoy this time of year. Soon we shall be hanging up our Christmas Decorations, putting on our Christmas music, writing lists for Santa and watching Christmas DVD’s.

To help us on our Christmas journey this year we have been joined by Thomas & Friends as they also get ready for Christmas with the help of very special engines.

The Christmas Engines

With five festive themed episodes join Thomas, Percy, Duncan, Duck, Reg, James and many more get ready for their own Christmas. Episodes include;

  • Last Train For Christmas – Join Connor and friends as they prepare to finish to finish collecting passengers from the mainland before Christmas. A snow storm and a last minute rush of passengers causes problems but see how the engines save the day.
  • Long Lost Friend – Gator makes a surprise visit back to Sodor see his old friend Percy whilst making a delivery of Rock Salt to the island but the delivery note is unreadable. Watch as with the help of the engines and the Fat Controller they find out where the Rock Salt is due to be delivered. Will Percy arrive in time to see his friend before he departs back to the mainland?
  • Duncan The Humbug – I think the clue to this episode is in the title, Duncan is in a mood. He doesn’t like the cold and the extra passengers slowing him down, slowly he is losing his Christmas spirit. He has been promised a new coat of paint but because of his mood and behaviour towards other engines he has not been allowed his new coat of paint. Find out if Duncan’s mood can be changed, can he help other engines and can his be rewarded with his new coat of paint?
  • Duck In The Water – Its a wet day on the Island of Sodor, Duck and James are going about their daily jobs when flood waters stop Duck from working. James is assigned the task of rescuing Duck with the help of Rocky but James isn’t happy as he wants to he collecting passengers, now rescuing trains. Can James rescue Duck safely without causing more problems around the island?
  • The Perfect Gift – Percy tries to cheer up Reg at the scrap yard as it doesn’t look very festive and Reg feels left out. Find out if Percy can spread the festive spirit to Reg by creating decorations and making the scrap yard look festive.

We have now watched this DVD a couple of times, the kids are really getting into the Christmas Spirit thanks to Thomas & Friends.

The new Thomas & Friends Christmas DVD is now available to buy with an RRP of £7.99.
