Roary the Racing Car DVD Review + {Giveaway with Rafflecopter – Ends 9/8} (CLOSED)

This giveaway is closed. Congrats to the winner posted below. Roary the Racing Car

You’ve seen him on Sprout television. You’ve seen him in bonus material on Thomas, Bob and Barney DVDs. But now, for the first time ever, you’ll see him in his own Brand-New DVD. Yes, that’s right, it’s Roary the Racing Car in his own DVD. Your kids will want to race right out and join in the fun!

Program Description
Get revved up for the red hot preschool star, Roary the Racing Car, speeding onto his very first DVD, Digital Download and On Demand release June 7, 2011 from Lionsgate and HIT Entertainment. You have a front row ticket to Silver Hatch Racetrack to delight in the high-speed adventures of Roary, Dragga, Zizzy and Lugga, along with human pals Big Chris, Marsha, Officer Pete…and even curmudgeonly Mr. Carburettor, as they drive through lessons in doing the right thing, staying positive, helping others, staying safe, problem solving and friendship. With boundless enthusiasm and a get-up-and-go attitude, Roary is ready to race right into your heart!

Narrated in the U.S. by Indy and NASCAR racer Sam Hornish Jr., Roary the Racing Car launched on Sprout in October of 2008, airing in 54MM homes 7 days a week, but the premiere DVD has a treat for their fans featuring episodes never-before-seen on TV! This red hot engine ha performed notably well on Sprout on Demand, on average ranking in the network’s top 10 programs requested. Roary has been cross promoted on 2MM preschool DVDs, and all-new Roary toys are now available exclusively at Toys “R” Us!

Start your engines for fun and excitement with Roary the Racing Car and his racetrack buddies, Tin Top, Zizzy, Dragga and mischievous Maxi, as they zoom into exciting high-speed adventures. The racetrack becomes a pit stop of great times as everyone goes the extra mile for Marsha’s birthday party, Big Chris becomes a babysitter and Rusty is on a roll…without wheels! Put your pedal to the metal and buckle up for big-time fun from START to FINISH!

Episodes include:
* “Stars and Cars”  - Big Christ has been incited to appear on a TV karaoke show. The cars are worried that the success will go to his head and he’ll leave Silver Hatch forever.
* “Rusty Takes a Trip” – Rusty is fed up with sitting in one place. Roary and the other cars plan a special surprise for him, but Rusty soon decides he prefers life without wheels!
* “Big Chris Babysits” – Big Chris has been left in charge of the track and keeping an eye on Roary and Zizzy. But is Big Chris the one that needs looking after?
* “Roary Gets It Wrong” – Farmer Green has given Roary lots of packages to deliver to everybody around the track. How will Roary remember which package belongs to who?
* “Computer Calamity” – Mr. Carburettor has decided that Silver Hatch needs to move with the times and do everything with computers. But Big Chris is a traditional mechanic, so what happens when the two disagree?
* “Big Chris Forgets” – It’s Marsha’s birthday, and Big Chris is in charge of organizing a surprise for her. Why does everybody keep reminding him what he needs to do? He wouldn’t forget anything…would he?!

DVD Bonus Features
* “Roary’s Day at the Seaside” Music Video

We were excited to see Roary finally have his DVD. My son has enjoyed his videos as bonus episodes on other DVDs that he has. And the narrator, Sam Hornish Jr., in Roary the Racing Car is from my hometown area. I think Roary is a fun character that little kids will love. Preschoolers love cars and this fits that perfectly. They will love the great new characters on the Roary the Racing Car DVD.

The Roary the Racing Car DVD is made for children ages 2-5 years old. This is a great show for the preschool crowd. The DVD runs about 55 minutes long. You can check out more about Roary at The Roary the Racing Car DVD is available in stores and online. I have one copy to give away. You can enter in the Rafflecopter form below.
