How'd They Build That? DVDs Review & Giveaway (CLOSED)

Marvelous Media's How'd They Build That? series now has two new titles "School Bus" and "Concrete Truck". We loved the "Big Truck" & "Fire Truck" DVDs that were released in the fall. Now there are two more titles.

Everyone knows and recognizes School Buses. My son was watching them out the front window at a very young age. His fascination with buses continues today. "School Bus" has received the Dove Foundation's "Seal of Approval" for quality in children's entertainment with one of their highest ratings.

Anyone who has been curious about how buses are built or where they come from will have everything answered. By the way, most of them come from a factory in Tulsa, OK. And they are built start to finish inside the huge factory.

"Concrete Truck" will be interesting to those who are into construction...like my little boy. You will see each step of the process as these big trucks are built. You will also learn how a "Concrete Truck" works.

My son already knows way more than me about how things work and are built thanks to these DVDs. And he doesn't miss an opportunity to tell me all about them either. (Usually leaving me to wonder how in the world he remembers all this.)

More How'd They Build That? DVDs coming soon are "Garbage Truck," "Locomotive," and "Military Machines."

The runtime is around 30 minutes for each of these DVDs. They are recommended for ages 4 and up. Although I have a 3 year old who loves them too.
