You're invited to the celebration on the Island of Sodor! Watch as Thomas wins a medal for saving the day. Will Edward rescue the brass band in time? Can Peter Sam help find a new refreshment stand for the refreshment lady? There's lots of fun new stories in this DVD, including Rheneas giving the school children a roller coaster ride on the tracks and Gordon winning a best-dressed competition.

The stories themselves run about 35 minutes and include:

Hooray For Thomas
Edward's Brass Band
The Refreshment Lady's Stand
Rheneas and the Roller Coaster
The Grand Opening
Best Dressed Engine

The Bonus Features include:

Character Gallery
Read Along Story: The Great Race
Sing Along Song: The Red Balloon
3 Games: Counting Celebration, Paint Party, and Fun With Shapes
Computer Fun: Web Fun and 2 Coloring Sheets

While the stories will appeal to children of all ages, the DVD games are quite basic. This is ironic, because a child would have to be pretty advanced to work the DVD remote to access the games! By the time a child knows how to use a DVD remote, he's outgrown the games. It would be nice if the DVD games were more advanced.

Kids will love the bonus train that comes with the package. If I recall correctly, it was Mavis that came with ours. It was a "repeat", but my son doesn't mind that he has a few doubles of some engines...having fun with them regardless!

The actual DVD case that's in the box is quite slim...more narrow than the usual DVD cases that don't have the bonus train. The flimsiness shouldn't matter, though, as long as the DVD case is stored properly.

My son enjoys all the narrators, and doesn't seem to notice the different ones. I feel the narrator on the Hooray For Thomas DVD does just as good a job as most (save Alec Baldwin, who's my favorite)...and much better than Ringo Starr and George Carlin (in my opinion).

A very nice addition to the Thomas DVD collection.
