No Thanks

My almost 4 year old son watched a few episodes, but it's just hypermasculine junk. There is nothing original, captivating or educational about the show. I was relieved when my son turned to the more educational Animal Mechanicals which was not so aggressive.

This title has:

Too much violence
age 5+


The CSM write-up is right on. Nothing your child will likely learn from this but its great fun. Some minor potty humor type stuff, like Dinotrux "leaking oil" and such. My 5 year old son who loves trucks and dinosaurs thinks its the best book he has ever seen. Takes it with him everywhere. May be a great book for kids reluctant to read if they enjoy these topics.
