Thomas & Friends' brand new DVD was released at the start of the week and we were sent a preview disc.
Speed is the name of the game in this latest all-new action-packed collection, with a new friend, Stafford the electric engine, joining the team. The official blurb says : "Thomas and his friends are charged up and ready to Go, Go! Thomas shows Gordon that being quick is as useful as being strong, while Flynn, the fire engine, learns to put his pride aside and race to the rescue. Thomas causes some trouble on the tracks trying to be a model engine for a new photographer, while Spencer’s on the move, ignoring warnings about electric engine Stafford’s battery. Thomas pumps his pistons to Misty Island to help fix Ol’ Wheezy. Will the number one blue engine be on track and on time? Ready, Set… Go, Go Thomas!"
The DVD has a total runtime of 55 minutes and features 5 episodes. As with the Thomas In Charge DVD, in between the episodes you get little sketches featuring Perkins and Archie which Pierre thinks are funny. I was actually very impressed with the bonus content too - you get two singalong songs, a puzzle and a little film featuring a real steam train.
Any little Thomas fan will be over the moon to add this to his (or her - Juliette loves Thomas & Friends too !) collection. As usual, the Madhouse Mini-testers love the exciting storylines and I like the life-lessons contained in each episode.
