Wilson's making tracks in some of his coolest and most traintastic episodes yet! In this collection, the brave young trainee makes a special delivery to the ice cream fair, helps Frostini create a new flavor for the mayor's banquet, and tries to prevent a massive ice cream meltdown on the hottest day of the year. There's fun in the ice cream factory, a brave rescue at the Safari Park and an adventure in the ice caves, too! Alongside good friends, like Koko and Brewster, and helpful Chuggers like Old Puffer Pete and Mtambo, the trainees discover important lessons about responsibility, cooperation, paying attention, overcoming fear and so much more!
Kids will love this DVD! There are six stories about the trains which keep the ice cream circulating around town and they include Wilson, Frostini and Brewster. The animation is terrific and the stories are cute and wholesome.
The six titles are: 1. Wilson and the Ice Cream 2.Bang Klang Wilson 3. Frostini's Fruit Fandango 4. Frostini's Meltdown 5. Koko's Puppy Training 6. Brewster and the Dragon
Some of the themes include Wilson learning to be on time and avoiding getting sidetracked and Frostini teaching him new skills, asking for help when necessary, Wilson earning his ice cream badge, overcoming challenges such as when the electricity goes out, learning a new skill like delivering newspapers, and watching a puppy.
This DVD is filled with fun and nice moral themes and lessons. We heartily recommend it for all ages for family viewing and we are pleased to award our Dove "Family-Approved" Seal to the movie.
Violence: A train bumps into icicle.
Other: Themes such as paying attention to a schedule and not getting sidetracked and asking others for help.
