This movie really engages any fans of the Thomas series, or toys. The storyline is magical and appeals to a fairly wide range in ages.
At first the children thought the more American voices (in comparison to the series) were ‘funny’, but they quickly settled into the storyline, and were particularly taken by the naughty ‘Evil Diesel 10’. Apparently there is an American series called ‘Shining Time’ which is where the different characters and settings come in, but the kids were overjoyed to watch it without any other explanations. (Only the older ones were left a bit quizzical!)
If your young one is a fan of Thomas, then this DVD can be heartily recommended!
