My brood and I attended a very special sneak preview of Thomas & Friends Misty Island Rescue movie and had a chance to check out the newest Thomas & Friends toys from Fisher Price at the gorgeous Brooklyn Bridge Park.  The kids and I anxiously waited dock side to see their favorite steam tank engine arrive, not by rail, but by sea, tugged by The Pegasus, a historic tugboat that participated in both World Wars. I never saw a bunch of kids so excited! Even my 6 year old nephew who declared he was too big for Thomas got so excited.  It was almost like it all came flooding back to him…. his once upon a time obsession with the steam engine.  They couldn’t believe he came all the way to New York!  With him, he brought all the newest Thomas & Friends toys from Fisher Price for them to check out.

As Thomas docked, we ran aboard the Lehigh Valley #79, a restored 94 year old wooden covered barge to check out Misty Island Rescue – The Movie.  This story takes place as the engines are hard at work to build a new Search and Rescue Center and Thomas gets lost at sea finding himself on the mysterious Misty Island.  We only got to check out 20 minutes of this action-packed movie adventure but all the kids were wondering… Will Sir Topham Hatt’s search party ever find Thomas?

Despite the cliffhanger, the kids were eager to get up and check out all of the play stations on the barge.  We got to check out Zip, Zoom & Logging Adventure™, Thomas & FriendsTM Shake Shake Bridge, both a part of the TrackMaster line and the Rescue from Misty Island Take-n-play playset which brings the movie to life in interactive play.  All these and much more are sure to  be on Thomas’ biggest fans holiday wish list!  Even my 6 year old nephew who declared he was TOO big for Thomas was begging to play with the trains after watching the preview — didn’t he say he was TOO big?

Misty Island Rescue – The Movie will be released on DVD on September 7th.
