Mother & Son Review:
We both understood from the description that we would be watching DVDs of "Lots and Lots of Trains" but failed to fully understand just what that means until we began watching the first of the 3 DVD set.  Yes, there ARE LOTS and LOTS of Trains, and more trains, and even more trains.  But, that is ALL there is.  No talking, no narration, no descriptions of what the train is, the name or type of train or anything else except a bit of "theme" music.  

My 12 almost 13 year old son LOVES trains.  He recently went on a trip to the Train Museum with his Boy Scout Troop (he had also been there when he was only 4 to see Thomas!) and loved getting to learn about different trains and even ride a few of them!  So, when we sat down together to watch, he figured he would get even more information on the different types of trains - how they run - what they are called - when they were made - what they transport and such.  But, sadly was very disappointed.

These DVDs are Great for just watching a HUGE variety (couldn't tell you which ones) of trains go by on the TV screen - but not so great for information or learning about trains.

We both talked about what we would "say" for this review and agree that these DVDs would be wonderful for waiting rooms, preschool children, or just to have on in the background to occasionally look up and see a fun train go by.  But, not for anyone who really wants to truly LEARN more about Trains.

So, overall - Great DVD collection for what it is - an entertaining LOOK at a Lot of Trains, but not recommended for anything other than entertainment
