My sons (2 3/4 and 13 months) love Bob the Builder and this is a special favorite of theirs. It's nice because it combines the cartoon Bob with "real world" construction sites. Pretty cool for the boys!
Fun, but could've been better

"Picked this video up at the library right after it was released. My 3-yr old was very entertained by the new Bob segments as well as the live action of the construction sites. Only downsides would be that the Bob segments are limited to Roley and a brief piece with Lofty talking with Bob. Several other members of Bob's team are in the video, but none of them talk, as if the video were made on a limited budget for royalty payments and none of the other character's voice actors were on the payroll for this one. Lots of the animated portion is just a re-hash of scenes from old Bob episodes. Also, the disk case shows a Sneak Peak teaser for some new Bob machines, but the video never plays it. The main menu has no option for it and the AutoPlay function at the start of the video, while mentioning bonus features follow the main video, never plays anything after the feature video is done. It just returns to the Main Menu again and that's it. This caused some toddler questions of "Where is the new part" repeatedly when the Sneak Peak didn't play.
Overall, it was entertaining for him, since it was different than normal with the live action interaction, but from a parents point of view, this is a low-cost filler for Bob the Builder video until new real episodes come out on DVD."
Live action plus

"My 3-1/2-year old is not a Bob the builder fan (he's a construction, fire engine and train fanatic), yet he loves this video. I think the live action helps--it shows actual roads and bridges being built. We've tried previous Bob the builder videos, but this is the only one he's asked for daily. Another plus is that the songs are not too annoying. If your child loves construction and is curious about how things are built, then this is the right DVD for you."
Love the onsite videos

"My son, age 3, just loves the Bob the Builder onsite videos. He's not that into the regular Bob show, but loves the onsite mixed with the regular Bob characters. He's more into seeing the 'real' heavy equipment with the actual how-to. We own roads and bridges and we've seen skyscrapers and parking garages and love both. I think the latter might be a little better. Would recommend for a kid that likes construction and trucks--but don't expect a regular Bob show with a lot of the regular characters--they are not stories but more of a how it's made video. Thumbs up."
