We bought this after we borrowed one of them from the library and our oldest son loved it. Unfortunately, our kids have watched it maybe 3 times now and lose interest after 10 minutes; they don't ask for it. I think it's a fun and educational way to teach kids about these things, so my husband and I are bummed that they're not excited about it. Yes, Dave is kinda cheesy, but the younger kids (toddlers, preschoolers) should enjoy it. I think they'd be more into it if we had started them at age 2. My 4 and 5-year old childcare girls always ask for it, though. I guess every kid is different. Still, I think the DVD is the perfect blend of humor, excitement, and information for kids, so I'm giving it 4 stars. The price is reasonable, so you could buy 1 DVD and see what your kids think of it. Our kids actually enjoy the "There Goes a Bulldozer" and "Rescue Adventures" DVDs, if that's any help.

My son likes seeing things move at high speeds, especially racing cars, trucks and the Noo-Noo from Teletubbies. Since he still has nearly all of the home videos that were included in this DVD on VHS, I bought this for him. It was great, especially the red toy car that came with this DVD. There are three home videos: "There Goes a Race Car," "There Goes a Spaceship" and "There Goes a Motorcycle."

In "There Goes a Race Car," Dave and Becky, the two hosts of the series, cover some racing vehicles, including off-road trucks, stock cars, demolition derby vehicles, dragsters, etc. There were also other types of racing vehicles that were not mentioned in this home video, like monster trucks, but they talked about them in "There Goes a Truck" and "There Goes a Monster Truck."

In "There Goes a Spaceship," Dave and Becky are at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. They showcase various space aircraft and vehicles, how their parts work, etc. They also talk about the Space Station Mobility Trailer, the Moon Gravity Simulator, etc. Space is very interesting to learn about.

In "There Goes a Motorcycle," Dave and Becky cover various motorcycles, including classic motorcycles, dirt bikes, racing bikes (e.g. dragsters), police motorcycles, etc. They even go on a road trip.

This DVD also includes a bonus program, "Real Wheels LIVE With Dave" (you must see it; it's funny), and some bloopers. This was a great DVD. If your child likes high-speed vehicles, I would highly recommend it!

We had VHS copies of these old Dave and Becky "There Goes A ..." videos. Our children watched them over and over. It was so good to find them re-cut on DVD, and for quite reasonable prices. Now the grandchildren can enjoy them as their parents did.

My little girl is infatuated with race cars. While you can blame it on Van Diesel, this film is a much healthier choice for children with appetites for the fast and the furious! In the words of my nine year old, "it teaches the basics of what makes racing cars different from street cars and Dave is so funny while telling us how to be safe and follow directions."

My 3 year old son LOVES Dave & Becky - we have all their videos and we can't say enough. Great videos. Goofy but educational and perfect for younger viewers. Completely age appropriate and fun for the kids to watch. He loves all of them! In this video Dave & Becky are race car drivers, go to NASA to the space training center and then go on a motorcycle trip. Lots of fun.

My 13- and 10-year-old practically wore out our "Dave & Becky" VHS tapes when they were little. I have been searching for these on DVD for our 3-year-old. I am so thrilled to have found them! The "There Goes a..." series is very informative, has a little slapstick humor from Dave Hood, and doesn't talk down to kids. "There Goes a Motorcycle" was the family favorite years ago, and we'll see what becomes the newest favorite.

My son really likes the "Dave Series". It's very informative and funny for my 4 year old. The only thing I didn't care for about this series is that Dave seems to get angry (in a funny way) a little too much. My son has commented about Dave hitting Becky.
