Just in time for Chrstimas, Thomas and all his friends, new and old, are here in Rescue on the Rails!

I sat down with Bug earlier this week to watch this new DVD.  It’s not a full length film, but another collection of short episodes.   I was delighted to see all the new (and some of the revived) characters from Day of the Diesels  in this collection of episodes.  Bug loves Flynn the Fire Engine so he was delighted that he was in this one.  So was Belle and most of the new diesels from Day of the Diesels.

In the very first episode, Flynn learned the importance of waiting and listening after he dashes around Sodor hosing down trains that weren’t on fire because he didn’t wait to see which blue engine was on fire.  (If you watch a lot of Thomas, you know there are several blue engines!)

This DVD doesn’t disappoint with the important lessons and lots of fun that you expect from Thomas & Friends!

BUY IT:  You can purchase Thomas & Friends: Rescue on the Rails from Amazon right now for $11.99 (20% off list price of $14.98).  And there is still time to get it shipped by Christmas!  Or you can pick it up at a retailer near you.

WIN IT:  Comment below answering one of these two questions:

1.  Who is you/your child’s favorite new character from Day of the Diesels?

2.  Or if you haven’t seen Day of the Diesels, who is you/your child’s favorite all-time character from Thomas & Friends?

Additional entries – if you would like more entries in the giveaway complete any of the following after the above entry is done.  Leave seperate comments if you want credit for seperate entries

Contest is open until 1/3/12 at 10pm cst.  US entries only.  I was provided with copy of this movie for review.  No other compensation was received.  All opinions are my own.

My son is 5 and LOVES Thomas and all his friends. He has mild autism and this is one of his fixations. We have not seen Day of the Diesels but have quite a few of the other movies and older shows. My son’s favorite train is Hiro, from Hero of the Rails!
