"I have a 5 year old and a 2 year old. They both love watching this DVD. It is my younger boy's favorite. My older son especially enjoys the scenes from the garbage truck factory. I would recomend it for any preschooler who has a love for trucks, especially garbage trucks."
My 2 year old loves it, but I find Wink and Blink annoying

"My almost 2 year old son is a garbage truck fanatic. He talks about them all the time, likes to play garbage truck, and runs to watch the garbage trucks every Tuesday morning. We watch very little television, but I decided to get this video for the occasional special treat. It is a very in-depth look at garbage trucks from how they are built, to how various types of trucks (front loaders, side loaders, and rear loaders) operate, to what goes on at the landfill. As an added bonus for my son, there are digger trucks and dump trucks at the landfill that push dirt around. The video is about 30 minutes long and then there is probably another 30 minutes of bonus footage (more of the same). I put this video on for my son once when he was very tired but it was too early to go to bed and he watched the whole hour, rapt.
I do find Wink and Blink and the 3 kids that are in the video annoying in a Barney sort of way. There is this stupid subplot about needing to find magic keys so that Wink and Blink can return to the land of imagination. I fast forwarded through most of those parts so we could get back to the garbage trucks which is all my son really cares about.
I found out later that this video is in our local public library. I wish I had known that because I do not know if it was worth it to buy this given how rarely I let my son watch TV. For those that do watch more TV, you might consider whether this video will be watched over and over again. My son probably would, but an older child might get bored. You might want to check your local library to preview the video and make sure your kids like it before buying."
