It’s no secret that we are Thomas fans around here!  So any new Thomas movie in our collection is going to be a hit!

NEW from Thomas and Hit Entertainment it’s Thomas & Friends: Up Up & Away coming to stores on March 6, 2012! The all-new release includes special feature content, activities and fun from host Driver Perkins, exclusive only to the DVD.  Timed to the release this spring, five Thomas & Friends toys will also be available so kids can reenact their favorite Up, Up & Away adventures!

Thomas and his friends reach new heights in these high-flying adventures! Thomas and Percy have a special adventure as they try and try again to bring balloons to Mr. Bubbles’ Big Balloon Show. At the Children’s Steam Fair, Emily learns there are great rewards – and laughs — in helping others; Kevin tries his hook at Hide and Peep and Thomas has a wonky whistle! Up, Up & Away for fun and adventure with Thomas & Friends!

Kevin has been a favorite character of ours since he first appeared last year so Bug especially loves any episdde centered around Kevin, like “Kevin the Steamie”.  And of course, you can’t go wrong with classic Thomas and Percy, as these were his first favorites!  If you have a Thomas fan, this DVD will not disappoint!

You can preorder Thomas & Friends: Up Up & Away at Amazon right now for $11.99 and get Amazon’s pre-order price guarantee! If the price drops below $11.99 before the release date, you’ll get the lower price! Plus, you’re protected from paying more if it should go up instead! You can also go ahead and get TrackMaster Up Up and Away Percy from the new movie!

Or if you would rather WIN your copy of the DVD, you can do that also!
