Thomas & Friends: The Greatest Stories DVD

Can you believe that Thomas & Friends are celebrating 65 years?? It just amazes me how long little boys have been enthralled by this cheeky blue engine, my boys included.
Inspiring young engineers with timeless tales of discovery, friendship and cooperation, everyone’s favorite #1 blue engine, Thomas the Tank Engine and his friends celebrate 65 years of great destinations with a fully-loaded 2-disc DVD set, sure to become a collectible fan favorite. The all-new DVD features 20 favorite episodes, including the first ever Thomas & Friends episode and features the voice talent of George Carlin, Ringo Starr, Alec Baldwin and Michael Brandon as narrators.
Each Thomas & Friends: The Greatest Stories DVD will include a coupon good for one General Admission ticket to a Six Flags Theme Park for the price of a child/junior daily admission and $2.00 coupons towards the purchase of the DVD will also be distributed at “Day Out With Thomas” events.
The DVD is full of fun including a “Create Your Own Thomas Story” DVD-Rom game where children can place themselves right in the Island of Sodor with their name and favorite things! Including five games, a Thomas Trivia Game, four music videos, four sing-alongs, and an enhanced read-along, this is a must-own DVD for any Thomas & Friends fan!
Special consideration was given to all of the stories selected for the DVD including newly remastered episodes, some of the most popular stories from the book series and the first introduction of Thomas’ favorite friends, James, Percy and more! Featuring beautiful O-card packaging, the DVD release delivers on the core brand values of friendship and adventure!
