Christmas stocking fillers from HiT Entertainment

Now if you have a child obsessed by trains, fire engines, construction and knights and dragons then I’m sure you’ll be interested in Christmas stocking fillers from HiT Entertainment!

Monkey loves Thomas & Friends, and I grew up with the stories of Thomas the Tank Engine by Rev W Awdry. We have all of the books thanks to Monkey’s godmum, and a number of trains as well as a couple of DVD’s.  There was a launch event at Drayton Manor Park for Thomas & Friends The King of the Railway DVD, but unfortunately it was on the same day that Monkey started Nursery School, so we couldn’t go.  But as a reward for settling in so well at his new school I bought him the DVD at the end of his first week. The train followed soon after!

Christmas stocking fillers from HiT EntertainmentIt’s a great film, lasts for an hour and we’ve watched in countless times since the beginning of September!

We’ve just received the Thomas & Friends Merry Christmas Thomas! DVD with Big Bang Surprise which contains 2 DVD’s and a total of 11 classic seasonal episodes. You can guess what we’ve been doing since this package arrived can’t you.

Stocking fillers from HiT EntertainmentWith a total running time of 138 minutes this would make a great stocking filler this Christmas.  Our favourite episode sees Percy become a snow train, no thanks to Thomas and his snow plough!

While you’re watching one of these great Thomas & Friends DVD’s there’s really only one thing to be snacking on isn’t there?

Stocking fillers from HiT EntertainmentThis pack of Thomas & Friends All Aboard Chocolates retails for £1.00 which makes it a great little stocking filler, and one which Monkey will be waking up to on Christmas morning.  You can find this pack in Iceland, Superdrug and Mothercare.

Monkey loves castles, knights and dragons so it’s no surprising that Mike the Knight has been a firm favourite here too.  There’s a new Christmas DVD out that’s been reviewed by Eileen at ET Speaks from Home called Mike the Knight: A Very Knightly Christmas.

If you are still in need of Christmas stocking fillers from HiT Entertainment then think Fireman Sam.  Our friendly Fireman has been a big hit here for a couple of years.  I think I know the entire script to The Great Fire of Pontypandy off by heart.  It’s a great film, a few years old now, but it’s much loved here.

We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure.If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply.

  1. My niece loves Fireman Sam. I think it’s great that they’ve updated the shows but I so preferred the original Fireman Sam.

    1. I know what you mean, I’d watched the original with my nephew and got quite a shock when I first watched it with Monkey, but he loves it. But then I remember the original Thomas the Tank Engine books too …..
