Movie Reviews

This is a great kids' title.

"The Busy Little Engine is a great DVD for kids. With wooden trains, real trains, a puppet pig, and some terrific music, my two year old gives it two thumbs up. The gentle pacing and straightforward editing help to make it an appropriate for kids as young as two. But the thoughtful story keeps it interesting for kids up to 6 or 7. The music, however, is the real standout. Mom and Dad don't mind the songs (I've even caught myself humming them on my own...) even after a zillion viewings. Clearly this one was made by a parent so you won't go wrong with this DVD.

Best train video on the market

"As a mom of a toddler and a preschooler, who are obsessed with trains, I highly recommend this video. The Busy Little Engine is more than just a story told with trains, it provides kids the opportunity to learn about what trains actually do. The story is entertaining, the music is lively and both kids find it enjoyable. Plus, Pig is just so darn cute!"
Great DVD, FANTASTIC music

"My friend bought this for my son's 2nd birthday because he boys like it so much. They check it out from the library constantly. I had no idea what to expect, but it's great. My 2 year old LOVES it, and his 4 1/2 year old sister tolerates it. The music is great, even for parents. I wish there were more 'choo choo pig' (what my son calls it) movies!"
A Good Alternative

"If your child is addicted to Thomas the Tank Engine, Busy Little Engine is a good alternative. We found this video at our local library. My son took it out so much, no other kid could ever see it."
