A must for Thomas fans.
I have two Thomas mad grandsons and they just love this film. They interact with the screen and love Diesel 10. They have learned that when The Fat Controller gives an order it has to be obeyed or there is trouble. A useful lesson for all children to learn.
Great for any Thomas fan!!
Great DVD, my 3 year old son loves it. Any Thomas fans will be very pleased. Great to have a feature length film including diesel 10.
Thomas and Friends - Calling All Engines (DVD)
I was pleasantly surprised by this film which rather than merely rolling gaily across the screen for an hour seeks not just to entertain but to engage its young audience interactively. The cheery storyline is simple enough yet the makers of the film did an excellent job not just with the look of the models which exude all the naive charm of the illustrations contained within the Rev.W. Awdry's original books but also with the way in which they took time to add some basic educational elements to the film.Thus a child gets to understand a little of how steam engines work,how they are different from diesel engines and the importance and nature of railway work in general....and why bananas are no good for building.
Thomas and Friends
Though the end of the story is happy, the engines sometimes have so angry faces that my small son (2,5) had bad dream after watching the film for the first time. And , as it was the first dream, he remembered in his life, I was a little bit upset. Now, of course he likes the film.
Any thomas fan will love this, Dont think it one of the best full length features but my 2 year old likes it
