Get close to all the robots and machinery needed to build those big trucks you see every day. View different models of trucks and examine how they are built behind the scenes. Sit in the cab and learn how they work from a drivers view. Using colorful 3D animated models and High Definition live action, you'll see the steps and process it takes to build such Marvelous Machines.

As a young man, my favorite toys were always trucks. Dump trucks, ambulances, fire trucks, tow trucks. What little man doesn't love to get behind the wheel and pretend to drive? Though the video is classified as a children's video, we found the content and subject matter to be interesting and informative for all ages.

Our 8 year old really enjoyed the robots and sparks! And it's good to see the celebration of American Industry - the video features the manufacturing of medium duty trucks in Springfield, OH at the International Truck Plant.

I would have to say that the quality of the production is better than most of the children's videos of this genre, and the depth and detail that they go into will make this video worth watching several times. Lots of 3D animation to illustrate concepts, and keeps it interesting. The program is almost on par with the History Channel and Discovery Channel type shows of the same genre.

There are several "Bonus Previews" on the DVD, which accounts for some of the reported runtime (the actual main Truck Video is about 30 minutes), but they are pretty substantial previews (between 5 and 7 minutes each) and include previews of the Fire Truck video of the same series, as well as "How'd They Build That? School Bus," Concrete Truck and Military Machines.

Great value and highly recommended! Looking forward to collecting the Series!
