DVD Review & Giveaway: How'd They Build That?





Do you have a truck lover in your house? My son LOVES trucks, tractors, and all things that go "Vroom".


We loved this new series How'd They Build That? from Marvelous Media. These DVDs are packed full of detailed information about how trucks are made.


In "Fire Truck" and "Big Truck" they go inside the factories that make the trucks. They tell about how every little thing gets built in those trucks. From beginning to end, your children will know way more than you about building trucks after they've watched this one.

The part that I found most fascinating is the paint room. They show how they cover the parts of the truck that need covered. Then the trucks are custom painted for the company who ordered them. It's so neat to see those big sprayers go to work.


Zachariah is completely absorbed in these movies. Then later he'll give me step-by-step instructions on how the trucks were built. He enjoys seeing the real life actions in videos like this.


These DVDs are short (about 1/2 hour each) and informative. The price is quite reasonable at a SRP of $8.99 each. They are available for purchase from Marvelous Media, Amazon, and other online sellers.


**I have a copy of each DVD- How'd They Build That? "Fire Truck" & How'd They Build That? "Big Truck". I will give one to each of two winners.
To win a copy of How'd They Build That? leave a comment here. Be sure to include your e-mail address, if I don't already have it. And if you need something to comment about, tell me what toy your child loves most. (Zachariah has lots of little toy cars that he plays with all the time.) For a second entry post a link to this contest on your blog, then come back here and leave another comment telling me that you did so.
The contest starts now and will end at NOON on Monday, February 23rd. I will post the winners here and will e-mail you as well.
Good luck!
