Thomas & Friends: King of the Railway DVD Review

Thomas & Friends: King of the Railway DVD Review
I've never seen my son more anticipate the release of a DVD before than for this one. At 6½, he is a little beyond the target age of Thomas, which is 2-5, but he still loves Thomas and all his friends. With all the commercials for this while watching the TV episodes, the release of this on September 17th was hard to miss. The fact that it introduced new trains made things even better.

King of the Railway: The Movie is not like the typical Thomas & Friends DVD release which just packages up a handful of episodes. No, instead, you get a new, single storyline, with a royalty theme, introducing a new old engine named Stephen, and some friends Conner, Kaitlyn, and Millie. You can't forget the Earl of Sodor, too. He keeps the engines busy, where lessons are learned, and everyone ends up happy. Expect all new toys that can appear under the Christmas tree at holiday time, if they aren't out already.

In addition to the hour long movie, the DVD includes a trio of music videos and a pair of games. Retailing for $24.98 with the BluRay/DVD combo back or for $19.98 w/ just the DVD, this seemed like a steal that is sure to entertain our son many times over, and he really doesn't watch many DVDs.

We already did the giveaway for this DVD here so it arrived close to the initial release. However, others around the web still have ongoing giveaways for this. If you didn't win the first time around, try over at A Lucky Ladybug. Her giveaway runs until 10/11.

  1. My three year old daughter really wants to watch this movie. Maybe a good Christmas gift.
