Okay, so we are big "Bob" fans. We have many of the videos,
and toys and computer software... so it was likely that we
would enjoy this too. But I have to say that this video might
be the BEST Bob-the-Builder video yet. We love that it is one
long story, rather than the usual several short unrelated stories
on a tape or DVD. My son (age 3) was so excited to see Bob's Dad,
and thinks it is so funny that he and his father have the same name, and
the "Dad-Bob" calles the "Real-Bob" by the
name "Bobby"! If you already love Bob and the Gang I know you will love this one.
We can't wait for the one with Bob's brother... due out in October 2003. (I hear it also has Elton John!)

My mother bought this video for my 2-1/2 year old Bob the Builder lover on the day it was released. He watched it SIX times throughout that day! He quotes from it! Really love that it is feature length instead of a few different episodes in one. Love all the new characters, too. First time the've ever showed child "characters" to my knowledge. My son loves the part when Spud goes to the library!! I hear Bob's brother is his twin -- can't wait for that one! I agree, probably the best Bob video to date...

The kids & I really enjoyed the DVD. My only complaint about the DVD is the lack of chapter selection. This means you can't go to any specific section of the movie, you have to fast forward to the part you want to watch. Also there is no menu, so you always have to watch the movie trailers at the beginning. They should have spent the time adding chapter selection to this product; otherwise, this movie is very enjoyable.

Bob the builder is great fun. My two boys are big fans, and even I get a kick out of Bob, Wendy, and all his talking equipment. This is longer than most of the Bob the Builder shorts, but the kids watch just as intently. Bob's dad (and near the end his Mom) are a great addition to the Bob family of characters, and this episode even has a little suspense...though nothing to upset the little ones.

We have 6 or 7 BTB DVDs and this along with The Big Game are some of the better ones. Very nice full length movie style episode about Bob and the Gang, and a castle visit. Has a story line to appeal to the grown-ups as well, with some tension over Bob not being treated like an independent adult by his visiting father(also Bob).
