The folks at Lionsgate and HIT entertainment have made this snowy holiday a lot more fun. Yes, we adore going out in the white stuff, but when mom wants to chill with a cup of tea an her laptop, I've been popping in two new DVDs.
First there is Thomas & Friends: Holiday Express. This set came packaged with a Thomas train (can never have enough of those especially on play dates). The actions centered around Sodor and the stories have holiday themes (snowmen, trees, etc.). The second was a bigger hit--Thomas & Friends: Splish, Splash, Splosh!($9.99) again Thomas is on Sodor with Rosie, Percy and all his pals. This series of stories has lovely little messages--(you know...work hard, be a good friend). I got a sneak peak at this one--the official release date is 1/5/10.
Since our girls are 4 and 2, this G-rated entertainment is perfect. I've found some of the PG movies a bit scary. We tried to watch UP! last week and it was a disaster--the fire scene got everyone crying. I'm happy to have entertainment that is appropriate for all ages. For free fun, head over to the Thomas the Train website here.
