    This review is from: Mighty Machines: Mega Machines (DVD)
    My 4 year old son and I have watched five of the Mighty Machine DVDs over the past few weeks (perhaps too often), and, while I still intend to purchase a copy of this 5 episode collection, I would rank this one as the least favorite so far. 4 of the 5 episodes in this collection are “newer” (from season 3 in 2008 vs. season 2 in 2004 and season 1 in 1994). While the first two seasons seem to focus more specifically on various machines working collectively on specific projects or at specific worksites (i.e., on the farm, at the lumber yard, at the recycling plant, etc.), these particular episodes from season three seem to focus more on a single machine and its function. The first episode of this collection – GO, BOATS, GO – is a primary example of this. We’re given an individual focus on a hovercraft, an airboat in the everglades, and a luxury paddleboat in British Colombia. While there’s a decent amount of information in this episode, I notice that, at times, my son gets a little bit disinterested with this one. While some of this may be associated with personal preference, I tend to believe that the lack of interrelated action with multiple machines and the lack of a tangible, goal oriented process make episodes such as this one less enjoyable for young viewers. Moreover, with the segment highlighting the luxury paddleboat (a.k.a the “Empress”), it started to feel like the episode was more of a sponsorship from the B.C. board of tourism, and less of a children’s educational piece. (When the “Empress” character voice-over says things like “hey kids, did you know that I’m a floating hotel…Each of my rooms has its own balcony,” followed by further discussion and images of elegant fine dining, one tends to suspect that the target audience is the parents who are watching the episode with their children).
    In spite of these minor flaws, this is still an enjoyable Mighty Machines installment. The 5 episodes included are: 1) GO, BOATS, GO! 2) MACHINES GO TO SCHOOL (Bulldozers, Graters, Trenchers, and other construction site machines develop their skills at a test site). 3) UNDER THE WAVES (Mainly Submarines and one-man submersibles). 4) BOARD THE FERRY! (Ferry boats that fraternize with each other while they ferry cars and trucks around the B.C. waterways). 5) ALL ABOUT RECYCLING (This was an episode from season 2 – incongruent from the from the other episodes on the DVD – back again to the concept of machines working together, this time in the process of recycling bottles, cans, paper, etc.

    Again, this cd was not what we expected, too boring, not enough action, too much talking. My grandson will not watch it.

    So, had I know I would not have ordered any of them. We tried to get Crunch/Chop/Tear (I believe that was the name) which my grandson had worn out from watching, but you advised it was no longer available, so I ordered the above, and was completely dissatisfied.

    Hours of enjoyment my grandson gets out of this dvd he watches it over and over again. Boy, you don’t have to wonder what he’s doing when this dvd is playing because he is right in front of the tv.
