Wow, my six year old son loves Thomas and the rest of the little engines on the Island of Sodor. This was a whole lot of fun to add to his collection and he has already watched it too many times for me to count. Any Thomas fan will adore this little DVD. A++

I think you just can't go wrong with Thomas & Friends. The programs always contain positive messages, they are wholesome in nature and yet still exciting enough for children to enjoy. There are always great lessons in that the characters make the same types of mistakes that everyone is prone to make. We see the consequences from being in a hurry or just plain fooling around, becoming jealous of others or lying to cover up mistakes.

These episodes feature the new CG animation, which means better facial expressions for the trains and townspeople. As always, the same great life lessons of discovery, friendship and cooperation are most certainly included.

In Thomas and the Billboard, Thomas becomes upset when he is inadvertently excluded from a photo taken of all the trains. Although it was a genuine mistake by the photographer, Thomas heatedly blames another train, which causes a whole new set of problems.

Steady Eddie refers to Edward, one of the older and most reliable trains. Because of his reputation, Steady Eddie is given the special job of delivering valuable cargo. He feels proud of his status and takes an alternate route where more people can admire him, instead of taking the directed path and gets himself into hot water.

Rosie's Carnival Special: Rosie is specially requested by Sir Topham Hatt to be one of two trains to transport the Carnival Special. Rosie is greedy and wants to do it alone, which causes an accident. She realizes that working together as a team can be very rewarding.
These are three of the six episodes on the disc. Also included are Mountain Marvel, Henry Gets it Wrong and Don't Go Back. Each one has its own valuable lesson which kids will benefit from, and plenty of action in the train yard they will enjoy.

This DVD is a new series where Thomas and every characters are animated. It's pretty neat to see them animated and move more than just their eyes and their mouth expressions. PBS started playing these episodes and I'm glad they are finally out on DVD for when we travel. My 4 year old LOVES Thomas and I have to admit I was pretty excited when these episodes came out on tv too.

I bought this movie for my 3 year old son. At first he was not happy about "talking thomas" and wanted to watch an old Thomas movie. The next day he asked to watch "talking thomas" and enjoys watching it every time now.
I am also a preschool teacher, and for a special treat on Fridays we watch a movie. I brought in this movie to watch, every single boy I have LOVED it and always ask me if we can watch "Talking Thomas" for movie day.

Another wonderful Thomas DVD in new CGI animation format. It is wonderful to see Thomas talking and more expressive. My 2 1/2 yo son and I love to sit together and watch each story. I love when Rosie announces in one story "I'm driving the Carnival Special!" It also has a bonus Rory the Racing Car story and this one gets my son laughing up a storm with the helicopter lesson.

Thomas the Tank Engine is an icon of young children's entertainment, and he comes to the next generation of viewers with another set of adventures. "High Speed Adventures" is a collection of six stories for Thomas & Friends as they go about their lives on the island of Sodor. Encouraging sharing, cooperation, and 'steamwork', Thomas tells many stories while doing much to captivate young viewers and giving them much to enjoy as they learn good values. "High Speed Adventures" is a top choice for parents of young children who want to let their children enjoy what they enjoyed as children themselves.

I purchased this video because my 2 year old son loves Thomas and my daughter likes it as well but wants to see more of the female engines. This particular video has Rosie and Emily in it which I was very excited about....until we watched the video! Wow, the first time I heard Emily speak I was floored - she sounds like a man! This is no exxageration. I have seen her in other episodes and she does not sound this way! Later when Rosie is featured, her voice is slightly better and not as alarming, but still not very feminine at all. I just can't believe that whoever chose these voices thought that they were appropriate. My daughter even asked me "Mommy, why do they talk like that?". I hope this is fixed on all future episodes because it is very offputting. Sir Topham Hat's voice is also overly deep and overbearing. On another note, it is great that they have introduced Rosie and hopefully will continue to introduce more female engines for the little girls out there who like Thomas. The stories are great but think this deserves 3 stars because of the poor voice selections.
