Mighty Machines Power Pack...Review & Giveaway

Like most children, my boys are entranced by trucks and machines...basically anything that is big, loud and moves!  They love it when I take the roundabout way to pre-school so we can pass the fire station and I am fairly sure the garbage man thinks we are stalkers.  Yes, my boys like to see big machines in action and when I discovered the series, Mighty Machines I became a Mama Superstar!

Mighty Machines is a series about machines and how they work.  This may sound dry but, let me tell you, with dialogue from the actual machines, it makes for super interesting television for young viewers.  My boys love this series and have learned so much about everything from garbage trucks to construction vehicles.  When NCircle Entertainment sent me Mighty Machines:  Power Pack to review I though A&W were going to fall over with excitement.  This four disc set includes the following Mighty Machine discs...

Diggers & Dozers:  Check out these three earth moving episodes: At the Construction Site, At the Demolition Site and At the Rock Quarry children will learn about building, blasting and crushing! It's all in a day's work for front-end loaders, diggers and dozers! Huge shovels dig foundations, a towering crane builds a skyscraper, dynamite sends a smokestack crumbling to the ground and a colossal crusher grinds up rock. So, grab your hard hat, and let's get rollin'!


Lights & Ladders:  In three city slick episodes: At the Fire House, At the Garbage Dump, and In the City children will learn that it takes a lot of work to keep a city running, but with these tough machines on the job, everything runs smoothly. Explore a real fire truck and see how it works. Find out where the garbage goes, and watch enormous tractors roll it into place. Follow street sweepers and tall tree trimmers as they keep the city clean and green.
 
Boats To The Rescue:  In three wave runnin' episodes: To the Rescue, Making Waves, and In the Harbor it's all hands on deck for an ocean adventure! The harbor is bustling with seafaring heroes of all types and sizes. Patrol the harbor with the police boat as he greets all his sea mates. Join Skipper and visit the enormous naval ships, ferry boats and cargo vessels that call the port home. Recover a "man overboard" with Sambro, the Coast Guard lifeboat, who performs daring rescues on the stormy sea! Zip up your life jacket and sail into fun!

Roadways To Runways:  Watch these three fast flyin' episodes: At the Airport, At the Racetrack, and On the Road you'll meet the machines that drive the highways and fly the skyways! Jet off to the airport and go behind the scenes as planes of all sizes prepare for takeoff! See what it takes to transport a race car to the track, and watch the crew get it ready to scream around the track on the big day! Fasten your seatbelts and hit the road with an 18-wheeler as it journeys on a long adventure! Rev up your engines and enjoy the ride!


Oh.  My.  Goodness.  This set is a great, big favorite over here.  Everything you could possibly ever want to know about just about any machine out there presented in a way sure to be a hit with any young child. My boys love every one of these discs and I would be hard pressed to have them pick a favorite.  I think W likes the fire trucks the best and A is a big fan of the boats.  I really love how the kids are learning about real life things they are drawn to.  To be honest, I think the Mighty Machine shows are pretty interesting too!  Now, when we stalk the garbage man each Friday we can show off our vast knowledge about his truck!

You really can't miss with Mighty Machines.  I think these have huge kid appeal and  this Power Pack is a great value at just $14.99 for 4 discs!!!  Snatch up this set today and earn major mommy points....

Oh, man! I am having a very hard time deciding which my little guy would like the best. He's a "vehicle" guy. As long as it has wheels or wings and make a loud sound, he's all for it. I guess that, since we're lacking any fire truck videos (so far!), he'd probably get a kick out of the "Lights & Ladders" DVD.
