Our fun at Thomas the Train 'Misty Island Rescue' screening

Fisher-Price invited me and my son to see Thomas the Tank Engine arrived at Brooklyn Bridge Park by sea on a barge! During this fun event we'd also screen the DVD release of the Thomas & Friends Misty Island Rescue, plus get a look at the newest Thomas toys.

Note: I was invited as media and received a gift bag after the event

Thomas the Train arrived tugged by The Pegasus, a historic tugboat that participated in both World Wars.

Play station activities were hosted aboard the Lehigh Valley #79, a restored 94 year old wooden covered barge. To get inside the barge we received special Thomas stickers so we could watch a sneak preview screening of the movie before the DVD officially debuts next month

After the screening of the DVD my son had a chance to play with the new toys collection. We loved that each station provided a different hands-on experience.
