A little one’s point of view of Thomas and Friends

Thomas and Friends DVD A Very Thomas Christmas Review

As I mentioned before, the beginning of the DVD features an actual person talking in character. This was a little off for my daughter; as she’s not much of a fan of watching real people on TV. She is still in the cartoons only phase. But once the episodes got into the actual cartoons; she was found to really enjoy the cartoons.

Often times she would cheer along with Thomas and Friends when things were accomplished, she would talk to them on the TV and overall she really enjoyed the cartoons.

I enjoyed that they were very well suited for my daughter’s age. The Thomas and Friends DVD is designed for kids ages 2-5 years old. Although my daughter did lose interest after the first two episodes, but I can’t blame her as the DVD is 49 minutes long and she just isn’t to the stage where she sits that long watching a show. Which is a good thing. I do however like that it includes so many different episodes; so I don’t have to watch the very same episode day after day after day! The next day we can just pick up on the next episode where we left off and have a new experience. Definitely keeps it fresh.

I also enjoyed that not only are the cartoons cute, and engaging for little ones; but that they are teaching them great lessons such as working together, the importance of friendship and responsibility; but in a way that is easier for kids of a younger ages to understand.

But what I loved most is that it’s not a DVD where I’m ready to pound my head against the wall after the first 5 minutes. Thomas and Friends has found a great balance between being simple enough for little kids, and yet not drive the parents absolutely bonkers with annoyance. Well done!

The new Thomas and Friends DVD was released in October, retails for $14.98 and can be found in many stores nationwide as well as on Amazon.
