Fireman Sam: Ready for Action...Review & Giveaway

A&W LOVE the show Fireman Sam.  It is an absolute favorite at our house and when they ask for a bit of screen time often it is for an episode of Fireman Sam.  This show is great.  The boys love the characters (especially the naughty Norman Price) and I love the great safety messages it sends.  Here is the lowdown on a new release, Fireman Sam:  Ready for Action, that we were just lucky enough to review...

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
Get ready for a firetruck-load of thrilling, high stakes adventure with everyone’s favorite flame-fighting hero, Fireman Sam and his trusty fire brigade, in the all-new CG animated Fireman Sam: Ready for Action on DVD, Digital Download and On Demand December 28, 2010 from Lionsgate and HIT Entertainment. This action-packed tale helps future firefighters learn the importance of fire safety, avoiding accidents and following directions.  

Preschool favorite Fireman Sam, the only firefighter-themed children’s program, originally launched in the UK, made its U.S. debut on PBS KIDS Sprout® in October 2006 and continues to air daily. 

DVD SYNOPSIS

Fireman Sam is ready for action in five exciting episodes!  The alarm has sounded and the Pontypandy crew is off to rescue their friends and others in need. From engine sparks and wild fireworks to water rescue and more, you won’t want to miss these adventures with your favorite hero!

Episodes:
  • Going Out With A Bang
  • Sticky Situation
  • Best Foot Forward
  • Hot Air
  • Alarm on the Beach
On a recent night, the boys and I had a movie night and we snuggled up in my bed with this DVD.  The boys loved it!  The characters are fun and likable (love "Elvis" another firefighter who has sideburns!) and my boys really enjoy the excitement of each episode.  The episodes are only about 10 minutes each and I LOVE shows like this....they are the perfect little snippets of screen time.  Fireman Sam is a huge hit at our house and I would strongly recommend the show and this DVD.  You can pick up Fireman Sam:  Ready for Action on Amazon right now for only $7.99 (bargain!!) so hurry and order one today...

I like the featured activity - Safe to Play or Keep away. I have lots of old magazines we could use and that would be a fun way to teach my four year old. He likes to get into everything so maybe this would help.
