Indoor Summer Fun
It's inevitable. As chock full as your kids' summer schedules are, occasionally there will be the need for some downtime. Or a rainy day that turns into several, to make having a good DVD on hand a great solution.
One of our latest faves is Bob the Builder: The Three Musketrucks ($12.99). Featuring the episodes, "Dodger the Milktruck", "The Three Musketrucks", "Dodger's Dairy Disaster", "Scrambler the Goat Herder", and "Packer's Big Delivery", this cute DVD introducers Dodger into the Can-Do Crew. Typical of all Bob the Builder DVD's, there are some great lessons on teamwork and listening to directions to be learned in a clever way.
In the episode, "The Three Musketrucks", the trio who model themselves after the three Musketeers, are in search of some palettes for Bob's flat-pack house. I'm impressed - as a big fan of modern and eco-friendly design, I think flat-pack houses offer a great opportunity to create a fabulous house while saving some money and time, too. Kudos to Bob and the Can-Do Construction Crew for clever storylines about building and ideas that parents can appreciate.
With each DVD, you'll also receive a coupon good for a free one-year subscription to "Parents" magazine.
