Mighty Machines: At The Demolition Site VHS
Dino, a shear tractor with a gruff, gravely voice, invites viewers to tour a demolition site where he and his machine friends are about to tear down a building, knock down two water towers, and blow up a smoke stack. The action is close-up--noise, dust, and rubble abound as Dino tears apart the building bite by bite, Crane moves huge pipes, Dozer goes back and forth clearing a path, and Grapple loads up Mack truck with all sorts of debris. Footage of water towers falling and the demolition of the smokestack are exciting and awe inspiring. Children of both genders sit fascinated as they learn about the complex process of demolition and discover the individual roles of each vehicle. This 27-minute video gets kids close to the action, provides a great sense of what a demolition site is really like, and explores heavy machinery in a safe and educational way.

Given that the boys put this video into the VCR about once a day, it's clear that they like the *idea* of this video. But they invariably lose interest in it after ten minutes or so. It could be that the distant shots of these large machines don't grab their attention. Also, it could be that the character voices given each machine sometimes seem disconnected from the machine.
What a great series of videos (we have them all!).
It's great to be able to sit and watch with him and not have to watch that purple dinosaur [junk]... It's also great to be able to do the dishes too while he watches.
Buy this Tape if your kid likes this kind of stuff.
