With thanks to Universal Studios, my kids were lucky enough to receive a copy of this film to watch and review ahead of time.
For the first few weeks, it was on high rotation. VERY high rotation. Mummy (me) put it away, until Sam (Master 5 year old) discovered it about a week ago... and it's back on high rotation.
Both of my children have fallen in love with this film.
Sam loves it because it's got trains in it - which boy doesn't love a film with trains in it?
Amelia loves it because the train is a girl train PLUS she likes all of the amazing colours and cute characters.
I'm pleased that they like it, as it's a fun film that I know they can sit and watch without worrying it's too "old" for them.
This film teaches children the value of optimism, determination and hard work to achieve their goals.
