"It's a very busy day in Dinkytown...." A little wooden train is pretending to be a real train, but he doesn't know much about what real trains do - he's only ever seen them at crossing gates. With some help from the Narrator and lots of imagination, the Busy Little Engine and his friend, Pig, have a lot of fun learning about what trains do all day!

Gentle transitions and easy pacing are appropriate for even the youngest viewers. Magical animations, real trains, and the loveable Pig make it fun for all ages (even parents and grandparents)!

Special Features include: * Jump right to your favorite parts with Scene Selection * Sing along with Pig in three original Sing-Along videos * See how the show was made in "Making The Busy Little Engine"

Featuring three new songs by Jimmy Magoo!

Running Time: Approximately 34 minutes, plus extras Recommended Ages: 2-6 years old Price: $15.95
