Fun, funny and informative, Cowboy Bodi and the Flyin Machines takes young viewers on a high flying ride through the story of airplanes. From incredible and hilarious archival footage of early attempts at flying, to modern marvels like the Blackbird spy plane, this series will set a new standard for children s educational video entertainment. Bodi is a little clueless, tied to the old-fashion notion that a horse is still the best means of transportation on earth. Bodi however learns of all the things a plane can do from the feisty but knowledgeable narrator who interacts with him. Viewers will also get snippets from experts - a female pilot of commercial jets and the Air National Guard, as well as a WWII pilot who restores and flies antique planes. In all, the characters, experts, music and very singable songs add up to a winning, 25 minute video that kids and their parents will want to watch over and over. Also included are bonus materials with fascinating facts and photos of many of the interesting planes seen in the video.
I'll save you time and get right to the point: BUY THIS VIDEO! I was lucky enough to get a preview copy of this video about a year and a half ago when my son was 3 and he loved it on the first watching. He's now 5 and he still loves this video and wants to know when there will be other Bodi videos. This video is informative and entertaining. It doesn't talk down to kids, but rather talks to them, at a few different levels (including how an airfoil works), so it's good for kids at different ages (my 9 year old nephew likes this video as well). The character is funny and the rapport with the off-screen narrator stays fresh. I enjoy the archival footage. It's something I can watch over and over again with my son. So, guys, when is Bodi going to space, riding a train, doing construction... I need more Cowboy Bodi! --S. P. Krull, CA
My nephews girls 2 & 8 can't stop watching it. They love it, me too. --Larry Larson, Los Angeles, CA
Cowboy Bodi and the Flyin' Machines is a great, fun, educational video on the joys of aviation. Our six year old son and his friend watched it during a playdate and they both loved it. I wandered in and watched it too and also thoroughly enjoyed it. The educational and historical richness of the video are delivered in a fun and entertaining way for the whole family. It's well done and very interesting- I learned a lot as well! And it's a pleasant break from cartoons and mindless videos & movies. I highly recommend this video for pre-schoolers through mid-elementary kids (our kindergartener totally got it)! --JH, Los Angeles, CA
