TOS Review–Lots and Lots of Fire Trucks


From the Publisher:

If you love fire trucks, get ready for the most exciting collection of non-stop fire truck songs, safety tips and fire fighting action you’ll ever see! From giant hook n’ ladders to spectacular super soakers, you’ll see the biggest collection of firefighting and rescue equipment ever recorded on one DVD – all set to the Award-winning music of family musician, James Coffee!

I’m always looking for “boy”-themed things for my son. Having a girl first, I sometimes feel that he doesn’t get enough things that are classically boy…like fire trucks. So, when I saw this “Lots and Lots of Fire Trucks” from Marshall Publishing for review, I was hoping he would love it! Of course, he’s a bit young right now for a lot of it, but that didn’t stop me.

The video is 30 minutes long. Segments include:

  • Lots and Lots of Fire Trucks
  • Call 911
  • Fireman Jim’s Safety Tips
  • Stop, Drop, and Roll
  • Your Home Safety Plan
  • It’s An Emergency
  • Heroes Brave and Tall
  • Great Big Fire Trucks
  • Fire Trucks In Action

The songs are, in my opinion, cheesy. However, my kids, especially my son, did not agree. They really enjoyed it, and I don’t think I’m the only one who had a song or two stuck in my head for a long time (“Call 911” is particularly catchy).

The book that accompanied the DVD has 124 pages of pictures, interesting facts, and even some poems. I think that I could spend an entire month doing a unit study on fire trucks and firefighters and not get through all the information in this book. Any child who has even a remote interest in fire trucks and firefighters will find this book fascinating!

I give this product 4 stars. Although I personally did not like the DVD, my kids thoroughly enjoyed it, which is really what counts!
