I may be sick of it, but my two year old twins love this DVD!!! We road tripped for 2000+ miles last month and this was the only DVD my kids wanted to watch. I tried others, but they kept asking for "choo choo". If you're going on vacation, you will definitely want to have this along!
Educational and entertaining. Great music, lots and lots of trains, funny "oh no's!"...what more can preschool kids want? Dads and Grandads love the series as well. Ok, so mom also laughs out loud when Buster in the blue engine disregards Controls' admonishment to slow down when he enters the shed!
