Michael Brandon: Narrator: Suddenly, Spencer whistled long and hard! James and Toby heard Spencer. Suddenly, James and Toby steamed out. Spenser had puffed to close to Hiro! James blew his whistle /whoo whoo!\, and Toby rang his bell /ching ching-ching ching!\. Together they chased the mighty Spencer down the track and away from Hiro.

My children's favorite film ever!
4 July 2012 | by sofia-414-200457See all my reviews

One of my second sons first words, right there with mommy and daddy were "Hiro" (with sounds missing of course). This word meant TV.

I don't think I have to say much more. ;)

It was simply what his 2,5 years older brother always wanted to watch. :)

And it's parent friendly too! Meaning the kids father don't go out of his mind as he does with the Teletubbies for example.

Now (at ages 2 & 4,5) both my kids enjoy the movie and see it regularly. The younger one has adopted his big brothers interest in Thomas and Hiro.

Short about the movie: Thomas finds an old engine by mistake and since he's afraid sir Toppom Hat is going to trash him rather than fix him he tries to repair him himself.
