"My son is 2 years old and knew of Bob the Builder, but had never seen him. Actually, our son wasn't very interested in tv or watching movies at all! We got him this DVD and now you can't tear him away from it. As a matter of fact, he wakes up and asks right away to see "Bob Builder". He loves dancing, in the beginning, to the "Bob the Builder Theme Song". And, he loves saying, "Pork-pine" (porcupine)! Now we've gone out and bought a few of the other Bob the Builder movies because we were afraid of wearing this one out! If your toddler already knows or likes Bob the Builder, I definately recommend this!"
I wish I could have watched Bob the Builder as a kid:)

"Bob the Builder: Bob Saves the Day is a great addition to the library of children's dvds and videos that we have begun to collect (and slowly drown in, lol!). This is maybe four episodes' worth of Bob the Builder and his adventures during a day hard at work. The cheery contractor and his talking machines always show respect and care for each other, but then watch as they use their construction savvy to help even the little animals. They rescue birds, mice, etc. from various predicaments.
As usual, Bob and the gang manage to get the job done through teamwork, all the while showing pride in their workmanship. I think this installment --as well as the entire series --sends valuable messages to kids about the importance of hard work and cooperation. You could tell kids about these ideas until you are blue in the face but they'll identify even better with the trucks and tractors in this delightful show. You just can't miss with Bob!
And now a word to the producers: While I can appreciate that you had to change a few things for the American audience, it was not necessary to change what was obviously a family of hedgehogs into "porcupines". Kids aren't dumb - in fact, they usually learn much faster than adults. You do a disservice to them by "dumbing down" the vocabulary. But that was really a very minor quibble and I still heartily recommend Bob and friends to all parents of toddlers.
