Life on the Island of Sodor is never boring - Sometimes when the engines are in trouble, they rely on their friends to Race to theRescue. Watch what happens to Percy when some runaway freight cars cause a near disaster. Cheer on Harold as he comes to the aid oftroubled Toby, and help Henry out of a "fishy” situation. Get ready for non-stop excitement! Hop aboard for miles of DVD smiles. Our Story Stops Are: Toby And The Flood; Put Upon Percy; Horrid Lorry; Bye George!; Something in the Air; Oliver ’ s Find

2.0 out of 5 stars not what was pictured May 6, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I ordered this because it shows Thomas as the train that comes with the video but I got a different train. It's the right video and my son likes it - but not Thomas the Train

5.0 out of 5 stars Educational & Fun. January 31, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My young son was/is a HUGE Thomas the Tank Engine fan. As he was growing up I purchased many of these VHS Tapes and later DVDs for him to watch. It was my observation that he enjoyed hearing Ringo Star's voice as the narrator above all the others, and so, many videos were watched more repeatedly than others.

They are all fun to watch, with beautiful scenic backgrounds, and beautiful model trains. The voices and scenarios are both fun and educational, and every episode comes with a lesson to be learned in it. This particular video also came with a toy train that fit his collection, and could be used on the same wooden tracks.

While my son is older now - seven and no longer two or three (the pinnacle of his Thomas days), I still get nostalgic seeing these, and will occasionally put one into the DVD player when no one else is around. Great fun for kids and parents alike.

2.0 out of 5 stars Double Train? March 30, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Haven't watched the DVD yet, Christmas present, but it DOES NOT have a double train as it says in the description. It is as pictured. Amazon needs to correct this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Came with wooden Thomas and Silver Percy, great price September 20, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this on Amazon on sale for $8.49. Definately worth it. Just a wooden Thomas costs more than that at the store! This came with a standard blue wooden Thomas the Tank Engine and a silver "60th anniversary edition" Percy. Both are the same exact models as you'd purchase for the wooden track system at the store. Cool! The video is your usual Thomas video, our son seems to like it. We only let him watch videos on long car trips so I confess I haven't seen the video myself, only heard it from the front seat. He is only 24 months old and gets scared at some parts (such as a dam collapsing) so we have to skip over a lot of the video for now. Overall pleased with the deal.

5.0 out of 5 stars son December 31, 2013
By Rosalyn
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My son loves Thomas the train, so I came on here to see if I could find any new movies and I did, after I thought I had found them all. He loves these movies and watches them over and over again. I do not mind because I have a hard time monitoring what he can watch on cable.

The DVD came in fairly good condition and my son likes it. Sometimes it skips in a few spots but I just breathe on it and wipe it with a cloth and it's good as new again. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars What train action
Thomas and Friends are back again. Older stories are funny (or corny) in these episodes. He seems to enjoy this collection due to the action and less talk as seen in other Thomas... Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Thomas DVD
My son loves this DVD. He could watch it over and over if you let him. This DVD has the more exciting stories.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing
The DVD came clearly used and did not include the trains. Very disappointing... not at all as advertised.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thomas just keeps on pushing!
Like all the Thomas programs, this one delights the grandchildren endlessly! Interesting stories, characters, music and songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kids will love it !
The program is very silly for Adults, but Kids stay glued to the TV watching the narration of wooden trains! It is very annoying for Adults!
