As a father of a two year old boy, I am always trying to find ways to bring some of my passions to my son while also giving him a great foundation for entertainment. This has led to us playing with toy airplanes, taking trips to the children’s museum, and watching shows such as “Sesame Street” while we spend time together. Because of this, I was thrilled when I found “The Car Video” online, as the DVD was developed by a pediatrician and filmmaker, which gave me confidence that the film would be educational and fun for my son.
The first time we loaded the video together, my son and I sat and watched the entire thing, which is rare as I swear the child runs around 24 hours a day. The video clocks in at just over 30 minutes, and includes a whole selection of different vehicles such as cars, motorcycles, and trucks. The video also presents children with concepts of shapes, colors, directions, parts of vehicles, and locations.
The presentation of “The Car Video” is very well done, and will certainly remind you of shows like the above-mentioned “Sesame Street”. The producers of the disc have done an excellent job of bringing together a lot of material in a short time, and your child will love the humor that is present in the film. Prime examples of this that my son loved were the multiple children coming out of the back of a car as well as a T-Rex that has his head sticking out of a Jeep. These are my son’s two favorite parts, and you can hear him squealing in laughter every time those scenes pop up.
The educational aspect of the video is great, as my son has quickly picked up the various technical spots of the vehicles (tire, door, etc) and points these out when we see cars out on the road.
Getting “The Car Video” was a simple process, as I was able to click the purchase button on the video’s website, which forwarded me to a PayPal screen that gives you the option to pay via the eBanking service or via your credit card. The shipping process was relatively fast as well, and the video was on my doorstep in what I consider to be a timely manner.
This video seems like it would be appropriate for children 1-5 years of age, and while older children may be bored by it, I found myself enjoying watching it with my little guy as we both enjoy cars, planes, tanks, or anything that can be piloted. If this sounds like you or your child, you really should take a look at “The Car Video”, as it manages to keep your child’s focus and teaches them a thing or two.
