My 3 1/2 year old son adores trains of all kinds. When he saw these DVD’s had arrived he was super excited to sit down and watch. He watched each of these DVD’s from start to finish and hasn’t gotten bored of them in the least. Each of the DVD’s has train themed music and video footage of all sorts of different types of trains. There’s no narration or description of or about the trains seen. I believe these DVDs are best suited as background during playtime or if you need a moment or two and your child wants to immerse themselves in seeing all those awesome locomotives on the screen. My son like to have it on when working on a puzzle or playing with his own set of trains.
- Volume 1: Smokin’ Steam & Diesel (45 minutes long)
- Volume 2: Thunder On The Tracks (45 minutes long)
- Volume 3: Roaring Down The Rails (90 minutes long)
Seeing all sorts of trains such a steam, diesel, passenger, and many more in many different places and landscapes has been a lot of fun. It’s really great to see how much my son focuses and points out the different trains he recognizes. Never has he seen so many in a row mixed up together in such a video collaboration. The included audio CD with the set has been awesome. He likes to listen to it in his room and at bedtime. The CD features six songs which roughly makes the cd about 15 minutes long. The award-winning sing-a-long music of children’s musician James Coffey is also featured on the films.
Overall, if you are looking to learn more about trains this set probably won’t be for you. This set is more for entertainment than education. It’s an excellent look of the many types of trains in the world none the less. Also a great choice to have on during playtime, a get together such as a train themed birthday party, and more. From my son’s point of view, he adores these DVD’s and honestly can’t get enough of them. So pretty much a winner for any train enthusiast tot!
