A review of Thomas & Friends ‘Rescue on the Rails’ DVD
My eldest son, Wombat, loved Thomas the Tank Engine and I spent many an evening tucking him and his rather large collection of die cast trains into bed. Now Wombat is 16 years old and prefers to go by the name of Tom, but his youngest brother, Ozzy aged 3, is now a huge Thomas the Tank Engine fan too.
With a run time of 54 minutes this dvd managed to do the near impossible and keep Ozzy sat down and glued to the screen for nearly an hour. I’d love to be able to say that I spent that hour eating cake and sunning myself but I too got drawn in to the dvd as my nostalgia for Thomas came fondly back to me.
This DVD features the Sodor Search and Rescue Team who race around the island helping out some of the engines and Bertie the Bus ( my personal favourite!) from some predicaments. As you’d expect from Thomas & Friends there’s engines getting stuck, bumping and even one who’s engine box catches alight!
Ozzy loved it, I loved it and I suspect even my hormonal teenager would love it too. Some children’s characters remain timeless and Thomas is certainly the most loved by my children across the past sixteen years.
