There's just something about race cars and boys that go together. :) As moms who have a 4 and 5 year old boy, we were more than happy to check out a new series called Turbo Dogs! Here's a quick summary of the show...
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.
Andrea's Take on Turbo Dogs... My 4 year old son LOVES anything to do with race cars right now, so Turbo Dogs was an immediate hit in our home. He loved all of the episodes on the 1st season DVD of Turbo Dogs. The stories are animated, action-filled and most have a good lesson tucked into them as well. We are VERY picky about what we let our children watch, and we would say that Turbo Dogs is a fairly good show for kids! There were a few "actions" or "negative-type remarks" that in my opinion didn't need to be included to get the point of the story across, but all in all, it is a good, clean and entertaining series for kids!
Stacey's take on Turbo Dogs... Rowan is absolutely in love with this DVD! He asks for it constantly, and I really have no problem with him watching this show. He's fallen in love with the characters, and I think he's catching on to a few of the character lessons that these shows portray as well. Of course, he's picked out his favorite character, a dog named Strut, who wins a lot of races.
I do have to agree with Andrea, that there are a few small negative things in the show that could have been left out. But for a show that is on CBC, and now available on DVD, its really quite good. I believe that the lessons taught shine through the few moments of negativity. There are many other shows that I would not let Rowan watch, so this is a great option for us!
A lot of our readers are probably familiar with Veggie Tales or 3-2-1 Penguins...and Turbo Dogs is created by the same producers! Even though Turbo Dogs is a relatively new show, it has already been awarded the 2009 Parents Choice Award as well as the Dove Family Seal of Approval! Watch Turbo Dogs in your own home Monday to Friday on CBC between 7:15am 11:45am.
In celebration of the release of the 1st Season of Turbo Dogs on DVD, five of our readers are going to receive their own copy of the season 1 Turbo Dogs DVD! In order to get one entry into the contest let us know what your child's favorite TV show is.
