5.0 out of 5 stars fun AND educational February 26, 2004
Verified Purchase
Our family enjoys these Dave Hood productions, and this dvd is no exception. There are three programs here: There Goes a Rescue Hero, in which Dave learns about the many careers that help in emergency situations; There Goes a Police Car, with Dave and Becky discovering how the police do their job; and There Goes a Rescue Vehicle, where Dave and Becky ride in ambulances, helicopters and other rescue vehicles.
Special features include a bloopers reel, two songs, definitions and an interactive dispatch center, where kids choose between two alternatives in a picture quiz.
Lots of fun!

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the money! October 9, 2004
My oldest son started watching Dave videos (starting with There Goes an Airplane) when he was 2 years old and still loves them at 5. I recently bought a firefighter video from another "non-Dave" series and after viewing it once I went right online and ordered the Dave Rescue Hero DVD because the other firefighter video was awful.

Dave has a charming and entertaining delivery and doesn't come across as "talking down" to kids at all like some other people who make kids videos. My boys would probably watch the Dave videos all day every day if I let them. If your kids love planes, helicopters, bulldozers, and firetrucks I guarantee they will love the Dave series!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for little rescue heroes November 19, 2003
This DVD is part of the "Real Wheels" series. This DVD contains three full episodes with Dave: "There Goes a Rescue Hero," "There Goes a Police Car," and "There Goes a Rescue Vehicle."
In "There Goes a Rescue Vehicle," kids will watch rescue heroes operate their vehicles as they show how they respond in real emergency situations. Follow Dave and Becky as they first pretend to be paramedics, then fire-fighters, then lifeguards. They even get to fly in a rescue helicopter! Meet real-life heroes and see real rescue vehicles and learn all about the gadgets and life-saving equipment.
In "There Goes a Police Car," follow Dave as he introduces police officers, their jobs and the vehicles they use to protect others. Dave and Becky pretend to be Deputies for a day! Meet a real-life Deputy and the equipment he uses. Learn about police motorcycles, police helicopters, police cars, a police dog from a K-0 unit, police horses, police bicycles, a harbor patrol boat and some of the training that's involved. You'll get to tour each of the vehicles with Dave and Becky! highly recommends this DVD -- Dave is fun to watch, and this DVD teaches children while keeping them entertained!

5.0 out of 5 stars Rescue Hero DVD is Wonderful!!! October 1, 2003
I was so excited to hear that this series came out with two more wonderful DVD's! My 3 year son is a huge fan of these DVD's so I immediately bought both (Mega Truck Adventures)! My son goes crazy for anything and everything about Rescue Trucks and Rescue Heroes. Even my husband stares at the TV watching the DVD's with our son because he loves the trucks and the people involved as much as our little guy does. The DVD is also packed with awesome special features. We especially love the bloopers because my son thinks the host, Dave, is great! I would recommend this series to anyone with kids who adore learning and having fun at the same time!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for boys AND girls! January 31, 2005
I bought this dvd for my son for his 4th birthday and he absolutely loves it! The combo of educational info and Dave's comedy and physical falls and gags is perfect for age 3 to 7 (although a friend of my son's who is 9 watched it with him and was really entertained as well). The best part about Dave's "There Goes a..." series is the fact that he writes them in a way that includes girls (including a female partner) and holds their interest as well - all the 3 and 4 yr old girls who are friends with my son love it. This makes a GREAT gift for that preschooler who you don't know what to get!

5.0 out of 5 stars I want to see this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! January 16, 2006
I am such a huge fan of Dave Hood, who is the creator of these series and he did such a good job on these other videos before the others which look good although some of them I have never seen. There Goes A Rescue Hero might also be previous refrences to There Goes A Fire Truck and There Goes A Rescue Vehicle.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best examples. June 6, 2007
I realize that many enjoy "slapstick" style humor, but it's not necessary to emphasize the "silliness" factor to teach children about the fascinating world around them or to alleviate possible fears that children may have with such serious topics.

In these episodes, children learn about real life dangers and the rescue workers who are always on call, but the level of antics by the actors distracts somewhat from the safety messages; many children will be more enthralled by those antics to recall the real life-saving warnings and messages about rescue workers. I suggest heading over to your local rescue workers open house or a safety fair rather than viewing these videos repeatedly. One positive aside is that the actors involved do offer a serious note at the end explaining how dangerous some of the things can be and they explain what can happen "in real life" throughout the episodes.

The Little Mammoth series of DVD's and videos are much more suitable and do not involve such over-the-top nonsense.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Mix of Education and Entertainment January 7, 2007
The makers of Real Wheels have done a commendable job of providing educational information, while keeping the DVD entertaining as well. This is one DVD that my son frequently requests to be popped into the player so he can enjoy repeated viewings (but he likes to play with his car collection at the same time). I must admit that I enjoy it everytime too.
