Mom & Mini Critics Thoughts – I liked having one DVD that gave me 8 different shows to select since I primarily use DVDs for our weekend car trips. This compilation keeps both my 4 year old daughter and two year old son happy in the backseat – she is a fan of both Barney and Angelina and he picks Fireman Same over and over again. The Barney episode teaches kids the seven days of the week and the music is sort of catchy. My kids have been singing it days after watching the Barney episode. All three of us are fans of Kipper the dog when we are in a mellow mood. The music and very deep mature voices of some of the Kipper characters are a perfect way to decompress after a sugar-fueled ice cream stop.
“A” is for adventure with your favorite preschool friends! Jump on the learning track because Thomas, Barney, and all of their friends are waiting for you to join in the excitement. Create a dance-tastic school poster with Angelina Ballerina and then build a pirate ship with Bob the Builder. Don’t forget your rescue hat because Fireman Sam needs help saving the school bus. With these fun-filled adventures, discover that playtime can be learning time for the whole family!

Mom & Mini Critics Thoughts – Fireman Sam is the most talked about hero in our household lately. Both my son and daughter find the episodes engrossing and funny. They like to recreate the rescue scenes and take on the roles of Sam, Elvis and Penny in their games. I use Fireman Sam to caution them against playing in the kitchen while I cook. The shows does a good job of finding a happy medium between explaining the dangers of fire and smoke without really scaring them.
With a level head, a courageous nature and a compassionate heart, Sam is a role model for kids of all ages, teaching lessons in safety, loyalty, leadership, cooperation and friendship. Whether showing the community the importance of honesty, setting sail on the sea, organizing a surprise party or hosting a fire station open house. Fireman Sam and the folks of Pontypandy welcome you to join in the fun!
Fireman Sam is back for more heroic adventures in fire safety! Fireman Sam and his friends in Pontypandy work together to save the day when Mike’s kitchen catches fire, Dilys gets stuck out at sea and Norman cries wolf… literally! Come along with the hero next door and his brave brigade for some courageous adventures and daring new rescues the whole family wile kl enjoy!
