I had the chance to check out the sweet new Turbo Dogs DVD. You know the one…. Ever read the picture book Racer Dogs, by Bob Kolar, or plop the kids in front of the Turbo Dogs CBC TV show on weekday mornings while you dry your hair?
Frankly, I hadn’t. I’d never heard of it. But the moment I slipped in the DVD, the kids were HOOKED. I can’t really explain it because the episodes (Volume 1 is made up of seven 12-minute episodes) are really simple. But maybe that’s exactly why they like it: the suspense is minimal; yet there’s so much action, and definitely a ton of really great messages about friendship, teamwork, etc..
THUS, Cheaty Recommends (the box says ages 4-8, but my ~3-year-old Rascal LOVES it).
Note that I’m not the only one who recommends Turbo Dogs. It’s the winner of many awards including: 2009 Parents Choice Award; Dove Family Seal of Approval (5/5); and a KIDS FIRST! endorsement by the Coalition for Quality Children’s Media. So, checkit. Here’s a clip of the DVD — coming out TOMORROW (September 14):
And here’s the synopsis from the Turbo Dogs peeps:
Dash, Mags, GT, Strut, Stinkbert and Clutch are the town’s Turbo Dogs and although they may be fierce competitors on the track and let’s face it, celebrities in the town of Racerville, they always (well almost always) try to remember that winning isn’t everything. While kids are sure to get caught up in the action-packed storylines and non-stop antics, an emphasis on team work will also see that they zoom away with some rules for the road.
So checkit! And let me know if your kids LOVE it as much as mine do!
P.S.: I was given a complimentary copy of Turbo Dogs to review by eOne Films. I only recommend products that my kids or I truly enjoy. I was not paid to write this post. xoxo
