Spills & Thrills – the new Thomas & Friends DVD – a review

Spills & ThrillsYou all know that I have a train addict in the house, well ok, we all are!  Monkey has been a huge fan of Thomas & Friends for as long as I can remember.  So he was so excited when HiT Entertainment allowed us a sneak preview of the latest DVD – Thomas & Friends Spills & Thrills.

Spills & ThrillsThomas & Friends Spills & Thrills DVD goes on sale on 31st March, with over 70 minutes of great action.  You also get a free storybook, so for £12.99 this is a bargain for any fan.

The episodes featured are:

Away from the Sea
The Smelly Kipper
No More Mr Nice Engine
Gone Fishing
Thomas’ Shortcut
The Afternoon Tea Express

Spills & ThrillsMonkey was in his element.  He was laughing all the way through Thomas & Friends Spills & Thrills.

Poor old Salty has problems with his engine, so Porter comes to his aid.  Salty has his engine fixed at the Diesel Works, but then gets covered in oil and ends up in a right mess with some party decorations!

We love cranes, and Harvey is fab.  A train that’s a crane, what more could a Monkey ask for!  In Gone Fishing, Harvey gets to meet Porter down at the docks.  Bill and Ben convince Harvey that he should be able to pull some heavy flat beds.  He soon realises that pulling freight is more difficult than he imagined.  He speeds out of control and disaster strikes!

As well as the action packed episodes there are some lovely extras including Mr Perkin’s Story Time, a big favourite here.

Why not follow Thomas & Friends on Facebook, Twitter and the website for all the latest news.  A couple of weeks ago saw the launch of the new Thomas & Friends hub.

Spills & ThrillsThe new online hub celebrates key milestones and moments on a children’s journey through childhood, offering you a variety of activities to do with your little one throughout the year! The hub includes the ‘Really Useful Challenge Chart’ and over the coming months new activities will be added (to take you up to Christmas) including competitions, challenges and seasonal games.

About over40andamumtoone

I’m a first time, full time Mum in my 40′s. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. We’ve had a busy 3 years so far, but now as Monkey has started pre-school I’ve decided to start a blog about our journey and experiences from here on in. We also have a kitten called Brewster who will be making appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari F1 fan, so am sure that will slip in to the blog too. We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit. If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.

    I think all little ones go through the Thomas stage don’t they! E is a little old for it now but we still watch the odd episode!

  2. We’ve loved this DVD so much, I think it’s the best we’ve had of the ‘episode’ style DVDs. Salty is one of our favourite engines so it was fab to see him feature so much.
