I’ve been feeling sorry for my boys lately. We’re in the middle of a huge life change, a move, and selling our house. The majority of their toys are packed away and I’ve been a little stingy in getting them out. It took 6 days to get our house into tip-top condition and I know my boys will get it right back to where it was in about 2.7 seconds if I let them. We’ve spent our time doing things outside, taking one toy out at a time, and watching movies.
We were able to preview two videos (they couldn’t have come at a better time!) and the boys loved them! Awesome Adventures: Rescue Friends features a few of my boys’ favorites, Thomas & Friends, Fireman Sam, and Bob the Builder. Timmy Time: Timmy Finds Treasure features loveable Timmy and his animal friends. The boys enjoyed watching both of these and rate them with two thumbs up!
Awesome Adventures: Rescue Friends includes six action-packed episodes, with common themes of courage, heart, selflessness, and helping your friends. The episodes on this disk are:
- Thomas & Friends: “Spencer the Grand”
- Thomas & Friends: “Toby’s New Whistle”
- Fireman Sam: “Off Duty Sam”
- Fireman Sam: “Fireman James”
- Bob the Builder: “Scratch Goes Solo”
- Bob the Builder: “Whizzy Dizzy”
In Timmy Time: Timmy Finds Treasure, the always adorable Timmy and his friends pretend to be pirates, search for treasure, and sail the seas! Episodes included on this disk are:
- Timmy Finds Treasure
- Timmy’s Treasure Hunt
- Timmy’s Tractor
- Timmy Makes a Splash
- Timmy’s Spring Surprise
Both of these videos are geared at the preschool audience, ages 2-5. My boys, being 2 ½ and almost 5, enjoyed them a lot. I love that the videos are cute, colorful, entertaining, and have great lessons in them. Teamwork, friendship, and helping others are always a great thing to reinforce in our household, and I’m sure that goes for others as well!
Each movie retails for $14.98. You can find them in stores or online.
