"What is up with some of you people going on about how awful it is that Elmo is scared in this DVD. Yeah, he should be. He is in a restaurant when a FIRE starts. That is the whole idea here. Kids should know FIRES are dangerous. My 3 year old loves firefighters. He has 5 fire trucks, a firefighter outfit, a hose, 3 hats and lots of video/DVDs about firefighters. He is a firefighteroholic but, he also appreciates that FIRE is very dangerous and not something that's fun and yippee! On the first viewing of this DVD he turns to me and says, "Papa, Elmo Scared", and I tell him, "Yes he is son because, he is in a restaurant that has a lot of smoke coming out of the kitchen. And he is not sure what is going on". On the arrival of FDNY Elmo, still shaking, is slowly reassured that it is ok to be scared about FIRE and that it is also understandable that the firefighters in all their uniforms can be scary as well. Elmo is then invited back to the firehouse to see what a firefighter does and look at all the gear they need. At the end of the firehouse tour Elmo is no longer scared. So, if you want a good DVD about the dangers of FIRE and what a child should do when a FIRE starts in their presence this is a great DVD to purchase but, if you want your child to live in a dream world where everything is fun and sweet and good enough to eat, stay away from this DVD."
Great video based on first episode from the 2002 TV season

"The initial story segment where Elmo experiences a fire at Mr Hoopers store, is scary, and you should definitely watch it with your child. The rest of the video does a wonderful job of reassuring and teaching your toddler, and my 28 mo old son who is into anything with wheels just loves the video overall. He does get pretty upset when Elmo is scared initially, but since we never let him watch TV alone, this is not a problem for us. Incredibly educational about fire safety, and scary situations in general. I picked it up on tape and regret the necessity for endless rewinds... So do go for the DVD version."
My daughter can't stop watching this video!

"All of the Elmo videos are a hit at our house and when I saw this one in the store I knew it wouldn't be an exception. This video combines two of my three year old daughters great loves Elmo and fire trucks! A can't miss combination. The video starts with a fire at my Mr. Hooppers store. The fire fighters come to put the fire out and everything is fine but the fire makes Elmo sad and worried. I watched this part with my daughter the first few times. She tends to get upset if she sees Elmo upset but she was fine when she got to see that everything turns out okay. To help Elmo conquer his fear the fire fighters invite Elmo to the station to see what they do. The video is packed with great fire safety tips the most important being that if there is a fire your child should not be sacred of the firefighter and should run towards them. It may seem simple advice but it was something I hadn't ever thought to talk to my daughter about. This video can spark important fire safety discussions with your child. The video continues with a firefighter episode of Elmo's world. There is also a segment of Baby Bear's Hero Guy. The fire fighters used in this video are ones from New York City. I always get a little teary eyed when I see them in this video. I can't help but think of September 11th and how three hundred and thirty four fire fighters heroically gave their lives. I find the scene where Elmo asks them if they ever get scared especially poignant. Thankfully my daughter is too young to understand the horror of September 11th and she justs enjoys this videos with the innocence of a child. This is a wonderful video and a great tribute to fire fighters. May god bless and protect the firefighters everywhere."
