Editorial Reviews

WALLACE & GROMIT'S WORLD OF INVENTION sees world-renowed inventor Wallace and his faithful sidekick (turned camera dog) Gromit turn their hand to presenting for the very first time, hosting a six-part series from the basement of 62 West Wallaby Street. They take an enthusiastic look at some real-life cracking contraptions, from gadgets that help around the home to the mind-boggling world of space travel and much more in between. From their self-built television studio, Wallace introduces films of inventors from around the world, and unveils some of his very own creations.

5.0 out of 5 stars OMG, Some of you have got to be kidding August 8, 2012
Format:DVD
OK, OK, we too were surprised when we got it out of the library that it was Wallace and Gromit hosting a show about inventors and their inventions, and not a series of Wallace and Gromit shorts with all their crazy inventions.

Well the fact is it is so amazing, we are buying it for gifts for young and old alike. You will be stunned by the REAL inventions out there, and the stories behind them. If you have a curious mind, or you want to inspire curiosity in a young one, then this is a movie for you.

And as a reminder it just has short cute vignettes of Wallace and Gromit, but the real stars are the REAL inventions.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wallace & Gromit are back....well, sort of.... March 18, 2012
By Carmen
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I anticipated that this release would be just what it is: a variety type show with wrap-arounds starring W&G. Fun stuff to be sure, but make no mistake: this is NOT a new set of adventures with our pals.

While it's great to have them back, it is a far cry from previous releases.

By all means; if you are a huge fan (as we are) pick this up and enjoy - and maybe even learn something. Just don't bring any expectations from previous adventures.

Format:Blu-ray
I recently received this and watched it with my 7 & 10 year old sons. This is a series of National-Geographic-flavored-but-cool-enough-to-compete-on-Saturday-morning shows (Children of the 70s, think Big Blue Marble). Segments are introduced by our friends from Wallaby Way, but the core of the show is real-life footage of inventors, hobbyists, and tinkerers showing off their cool gadgets. They have a segment on Theo Jansen, the guy who makes those amazing wind-driven walking 'animals' that stalk beaches. Cool stuff. The level of the engineering is ~2-3rd grade. My 10 year old thought the inventions were cool, but he definitely could have handled more detail. The 7 year old liked it after his initial disappointment that it wasn't a 'real' Wallace and Grommet show. Overall, absolutely worth a look, but make sure you're aware what you're buying!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating August 29, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
My 7 year old son was mesmerized by this DVD. He couldn't wait to show me the walking creatures made out of PVC piping. It was amazing. I love that it's showing homegrown inventors from around the world. It's so great for the kids to have exposure to lives and inspiring ideas put into action from beyond our borders. In fact my son just said, "Watching this makes me want to go into the garage and invent something". Also, needless to say, the various W&G vignettes, including the elephant-gas-run contraption, kept him chuckling.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected... April 8, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I think I should have looked in to this DVD more. It is a show and tell the commentary by Wallace and Gromit. While others do the Show. Very disappointed, I had expected Wallace and Gromit to to all. I am a fan!

5.0 out of 5 stars World of invention April 26, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a great tool for older children to get them thinking. The possibilities of putting thought into action. Pretty cool inventions are shown. If you thought it was an animated show you will be in for a let down. There are between inventions small bits of Wallace and Gromit.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not exactly what I expected.. April 26, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I wish that I would have researched this product before pre-ordering but the Wallace and Gromit name made me think that I was getting that! It's not that they aren't in the video but this is really a kids educational series with some W&G interstitials. Very disappointing to me and I would imagine that the replay value wouldn't even be that great for almost any kid!

There was little here for me and nothing for my 16 year old son.

5.0 out of 5 stars Science History
Not what I expected, kind of like Bill Nye the Science Guy, but very interesting and informative with Wallace and Gromit humor.
But I did enjoy it very much.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great for kids.
This is great for kids. Very informative. Wallace and Gromit do the intros and little appearances but vidio is mostly documentaries on scientific inventions and principles.
