My son LOVED this movie.
Choose another Bob Movie- Too much arguing and yodeling

"My 2 1/2 year old son loves anything to do with Bob the Builder. The new characters Bennie and Zoomer are great and my son likes the Zoomer toy. This movie is really too long and negative for a child his age. It is a full length movie rather than several short episodes like the other Bob the Builder DVD's. Scoop spends most of the movie arguing with or criticizing the other machines. Here are a few examples of the dialogue -- -- "We're here to work not to have fun," "You're just a show off," "You need to stop being such a know it all," etc. I believe they are trying to introduce the concept of teamwork, but I think it is introducing way too much corporate culture at such a young age. The yodeling may be very annoying for most as well. I would buy "Dig, Lift and Haul" instead of this movie.
Bad, Bad, Bad.

"Like the other reviewers I also have a 3 year old who is crazy about Bob; he must have watched 'A Christmas to Remember' a thousand times (me too!!). But this christmas effort is very disappointing. He was so excited by the online reviews and sneak peaks, but has never asked to watch 'Snowed Under' again since seeing it for the first time at christmas. Hated the 'team leader' personality given to scoop - very confusing for my children too. Scenes were stretched, unnecessary boring bits were used to fill the time and the overall pace was slow - nothing to capture a child's imagination and enthusiasm. And way too much yodling too. My 2 year old didn't sit still for more than 10 minutes. Shame."

"My 2 1/2 year old son received this as a gift for Christmas - he loves Bob the Builder and we have a few other videos. In this story, Scoop becomes a egomanical paranoid freak, which my son finds confusing and upsetting. There are a few scenes where the machines argue and "camera" zooms in on close-ups of angry machine faces. This he finds very upsetting and yells for me to fast forward. It sends a terrible message to young children- that someone can treat their friends (co-workers, whoever) very badly, and then at the end, when that person messes up and needs help, is easily forgiven and it is all shrugged off. In addition, the foreign accents assigned to some characters are ridiculous and almost offensive (and again, confusing to my son) and the yodeling is a virtual nightmare. It is just so sad that HIT Entertainment did not produce a storyline with more empathetic characters, and involve more learning. It is a total waste."
