We’d seen these episodes before. And yet when I put the DVD in my son became transfixed and didn’t budge until the DVD was over. At which point he said “again?”. The Thomas & Friends show may be mainly for children ages 2-6 but we never tire of it here. My son just loves everything about it – the characters, voices, colors, sounds, everything. I like the stories too, they’re nice. The stories always have an underlying lesson to be learned and yet they never come off as preachy. They’re just plain fun. This particular DVD included a poster featuring all of the trains. My son went bananas when he saw it and we had to hang it immediately. The bonus games are also fun. My son loves them and has no problem playing them independently. Thomas and Friends: Railway Mischief is a must have for all Thomas fans.

If you could create an engine of any color for Thomas & Friends, what color would it be? I’d really like to know, please leave a comment!

Do you remember when you were growing up, wondering if things you did were as good as the other kids? It could have been anything – sports, crafts, a school subject? I think it’s a safe bet that most children have felt that way at one point or another. In “It’s Your Birthday, Barney” we see Riff going through that. He sings a sad little song that really tugs at the heartstrings, one that will surely hit home with anyone who’s ever wondered it. Riff learns that it isn’t the actual gift that counts as much as the thought behind it. It’s a great positive lesson that everyone, children and adult, should learn early and remember.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Get ready to cheer…spring is here with Angelina Ballerina® and her mouseling friends, as they dance through five blooming adventures in Angelina Ballerina: Spring Fling available on DVD, Digital HD and Video on Demand March 11, 2014 from Lionsgate and HIT Entertainment. Watch everyone’s favorite ballerina beat the blues of the season by learning about spring traditions from around the world, creating a brand new dance to help out a friend and finding creative ways to solve the problem of missing costumes and much, much more!

Angelina Ballerina embodies dance, music and performance while inspiring girls to achieve their dreams. Angelina dances her way into little girls’ hearts while sharing lessons in friendship, loyalty and of course, fun

SYNOPSIS

Angelina and her friends put some spring in their step and beat the winter blues by trying different traditions from around the world. Angelina leaps into action to help Gracie get the credit she deserves and is paired up with AZ to create special posters with lots of school spirit. Elsewhere teamwork blossoms when the girls work with AZ to create a new style of dance so that he can rock ‘Mouseling Day’. Spring ahead with Angelina as she enjoys friendship, laughter and dance in these five, fun-filled adventures!

We love Angelina Ballerina. My son gets a kick out of dancing whenever she is on. I love watching him have fun. The encouragement of dance, music, singing and the arts is one of my favorite things about Angelina Ballerina. These are all activities that our children, boys and girls, should enjoy and appreciate. Other messages included in the episodes are teamwork, hard work, cooperation, patience and of course friendship. I’m not sure which episode my son enjoyed the most. I particularly got a kick out of the episode where Angelina was certain she’d be paired with her friend Gracie and instead was paired with AZ. The two have completely different ideas of what Camembert means to them, so their posters are completely different. How can a team submit a team project when the two members can’t agree? You’ll have to watch and see for yourself.

Angelina Ballerina: Spring Fling includes the episodes:
“Angelina’s Spring Fling”
“Angelina and the Front Page”
“Angelina and the New Jeans”
“Angelina’s Trick-or-Treat Feat”
“Angelina and the Poster”

DVD BONUS FEATURES
Angelina’s Stupendous Dress-Up Game!

I’m a big fan of Angelina Ballerina. How can you not be? The show is cute. I love that it has positive messages like having fun, listening, being a good friend, trying your best and cooperation. I also love that it encourages an interest in the arts, specifically singing and dancing. In a day and age full of video games, I think it’s great to see a show encouraging kids to get up and do something creative and even physical. Here’s the synopsis.

The stage is set for big performances and lots of fun! When Ms. Mimi loses her voice, her class finds ways to communicate through music. After a musical mishap, AZ doesn’t miss a beat and discovers another way to keep tempo. Gracie learns an important lesson about finding inspiration and Angelina and Polly set the stage for a perfect celebration for their dad. Come along as Angelina and the mouselings let their creativity shine and get on with the show!

Episodes on the DVD include:

  • “Angelina’s Musical Day”
  • “Angelina and the Bandleader”
  • “Angelina and Ms. Mimi”
  • “Angelina’s Kitchen Band”
  • “Angelina and the Father’s Day Surprise”

Bonus features include:

  • Angelina’s Picture Game
  • I Will Be a Star Karaoke Music Video

We’ve watched this DVD three times already. My son loves it. I love watching him watch it, because not only do I love seeing the smile on his face but I also get a kick out of him dancing. This DVD would be great for all young children, boys and girls.

What is your (or your child’s) favorite type of dancing? Leave a comment!

ABOUT THOMAS & FRIENDS: THE THOMAS WAY

Hop aboard for fun on Sodor as the engines find out that there is always something new to learn! While Thomas and Duck learn how to steam ahead together with a special delivery, Luke and Millie find out what it’s like to drive in each other’s tracks – literally! Percy steams straight into a lucky encounter with Bill and Ben, Caitlin gets a lesson in how things are done and Paxton works hard to recover Thomas’ lost puff. With so much activity on Sodor, it’s always important to steam ahead and remember that the best way is the Thomas Way!

Episodes Include:

  • “The Thomas Way”
  • “The Switch”
  • “Percy’s Lucky Day”
  • “Calm Down Caitlin”
  • “The Lost Puff”

DVD SPECIAL FEATURES

  • BONUS EPISODE: Luke’s New Friend
  • Lift & Load Crane Game
  • Guess Who? Puzzles

MY THOUGHTS

This was an especially fun DVD for me to watch with my son as I hadn’t seen all of these episodes. All of the episodes are CGI. The Thomas Way is a story of how Thomas wants to have fun and do things his way instead of getting his work done, which of course leads to some further problems. The Switch is the story of Luke and Millie trading places and doing each other jobs, and realizing not everything is always what it appears to be. Percy’s Lucky Day is the story of Percy, who after a very bad day believes he has had bad luck and needs some good luck, which all made me chuckle because it reminded me of how some people have good luck charms and believe in rituals and superstitions. Calm Down Caitlin is the story of how Caitlin spends a night on Sodor, and she is so excited that she is noisy and causes lots of trouble. The fifth, The Lost Puff, was my favorite. Thomas loses his steam and Paxton tries to find ways to get him more, not realizing that steam will return once Thomas’ wet firebox dries. All of these episodes feature tales about friendship, teamwork, cooperation and listening.

MY THOUGHTS

We had fun watching this movie. I enjoy Angelina Ballerina not only for the messages it contains, but also because it gets my child up and dancing. my favorite episode is Dance Like A Cake Day, because it’s a great example of how things sound good but don’t always work out the way you plan or would like. As always, Angelina episodes promote friendship and cooperation while encouraging an appreciation for dance and music.

MY THOUGHTS

This 3-movie pack is perfect for Thomas fans of all ages. It contains three full-length movies. If your little conductor hasn’t seen all three, or has only seen one or two, this is a must have for your collection. My youngest son is a huge Thomas fan. Whether watching these movies with him or watching him enjoy these movies on his own, these movies just never get old, which is why they’re a holiday hit. We’ve seen each of the three many times (and reviewed them), and we love them just as much today as we did when we first saw them. Fun stories carry messages of teamwork, cooperation, friendship, hard work and doing your best carry throughout all three movies.

MY THOUGHTS

My youngest loves all things Thomas. This was the first time we saw this and we really enjoyed it. I really loved the way that new and old meshed together in this movie. We were introduced to some new characters, including the Earl of Sodor, two super fast engines names Connor and Caitlin, Millie the French engine, and and an old engine named Stephen who knows a lot about history. We were also introduced to new areas of the island, including the castle grounds and the abandoned mines below it. In the beginning of the movie we learn that the Earl of Sodor is returning to Sodor after a very long time away. He will be restoring the castle, and opening it for all to see. Restoring the castle will take a lot of work. As usual, our friends the engines are trying to be useful but things go a little awry and Stephen goes missing. All of the engines must work together to comb the island and find him. Once Thomas finds Stephen, he will have to work even harder to save his new friend from a certain disaster. The special features included on this DVD, especially the game and puzzles, were a big hit with my son as usual.This DVD is a must have for all Thomas & Friends fans.
