Inappropriate Material for Toddlers and young kids

"I'm quite fond of the many 'reality' videos that have been created for toddlers. They give kids a chance to see the workings of the real world, learning how things work and what people do for a living.
I've seen other videos in this series, and they've been OK -- that is, entertaining and informative enough to let my kids watch them. With that as background, I decided to buy this one since we'd never seen it before. Unfortunately, that was a mistake.
These videos are not for teenagers; indeed, I don't think that the normal teen would sit through a full showing of one! They're for kids perhaps as young as 2, and as old as 8. So, why would 'Dave' end one of the segments with a statement to kids that they should stay off of drugs? In the segment on helicopters, there's a good deal of material on gunships and weaponry. At one point, Dave stresses the power of one of the helicopter's guns. There are many other uses of helicopters that could have been covered in this video, without resorting to war and military purposes.
Remember: we're dealing with a Target Audience of 2-8 year olds!
It's hard enough to protect our kids until they're old enough to deal with issues of war and drugs -- we don't need to support videos that undermine our values, or force our kids to deal with these issues at an unnecessarily young age. I am really disappointed by this video, and strongly recommend against supporting this childrens' producer. They could have done a wonderful job with the topics included here -- but they've really let us parents down!"
Real Wheels Keep on Rolling

"My daughter and I just finished watching this DVD and absolutely loved it. Not only did this DVD keep my daughter giggling through the whole feature, but I was entertained as well. This DVD really encourages an interactive viewing experience, which is something all parents should consider with the amount of television our youngsters watch. Great information, fantastic visual clips of all sorts of boats and planes, and even greater characters. Well Done."
