Disappointed - low sound quality and poor content

"DVD one contains parts 1 and 2Part 1 was frankly terrible and my son walked away from the TV. He wants to see bulldozers and dump trucks, not long segments on toy trains and another even poorer section on a national park. Seemed like they ran out of content (for a 30 minute video?) and cut in some national park service scenes.Part 2 was bearable though it did also have some really weird stuff in it for Caterpillar DVD. How hard could it be to get 30 minutes of good footage of earhmoving equipment?I was surprised of the low audio quality for this DVD (parts one and two). Many of the section were over-modulated meaning the sound 'clips' at the top end and is all distorted.Amazed that Caterpillar would lend their good name to such a poor overall effort. I have scene childrens birthday parties with better production quality. Good think I didn't pay that much or I would have been really ticked.p.s. I read the other review - not sure I understand how we could have watched the same video. I double checked and confirmed I watched CAT machines DVD 1."
Very cute video for toddlers

"Judging from the other reviews, I think that folks are getting this for older kids. I believe these are more for the toddler set since they really do basic things and nothing too fantastic or over-stimulating. My little one just loves this thing and wants to watch his "John Deere" movie all the time. (All tractors are John Deere in his book.) It shows some beautiful scenery of Montana, which is quite nice actually if you've never been there, and shows a little circus train (which really makes no sense to me whatsoever). But, if your little ones love big machines, then this one is worth renting at the library. I don't know if I recommend buying it or not - I'm not going to because I just think it's something too easily outgrown. It definitely needs more action to appeal to older children."
If your child likes the "I Love Toy Train" videos....

"This may be the DVD for you. It was created and follows the same format as the popular I Love Toy Train series. However, I find the footage on these dvd's less stimulating than the train series. Most of it appears very old and certainly wasn't recorded or produced for the digital format. It also lacks any technical explanation of the vehicles. I would recommend the Real Wheels (There goes a Bulldozer, There goes a Monster Truck/Firetruck/Tank etc.) series. In addition, I Dig Dirt is also a good find (and much cheaper than this one)."
