My folks bought Thomas a DVD for his birthday called "All About Fast Trains". It is a 'documentary' about trains. Specifically a documentary about Engineers Gus and Sam and their amazing model train set. The most stirring part is watching tiny tin soldiers "march" next to the tiny railroad tracks, to a kazoo version of "Stars and Stripes Forever" (aka "Be Kind to your Web-Footed Friends"). It is like watching someone's home movies. Of course, Thomas loves it with a passion and wants to watch it at every waking moment. Thanks a lot, Nana.
