TRANSFORMERS RESCUE BOTS: Mystery Rescue came out last month from Shout Factory Kids in collaboration with Hasbro Studios. If you like me haven’t heard of it you are probably thinking Transformers is for older kids. Well, let me tell you that is version is perfect for kids ages 3 and up. It features robots that transform into rescue vehicles like a police car, helicopter, fire truck, and a bulldozer. Their main objective is to protect town and people from bad situations instead of bad guys. So if you are worrying about violence and intensely scary situations you’ll be pleased to know you won’t find that in this show.
My son that’s three and a half years has been all about the Rescue Bots for the last couple of weeks. Not a day has gone by when he hasn’t been role playing with his toys the episodes he has seen He also has been going around singing the theme song and asking for Transformer coloring sheets (my fridge is literally covered in these robots).
I’m really glad to be able to offer him wholesome entertainment and that it’s available. It’s totally geared for his age as he’s growing up and wanting to see more big boy things but not obviously ready for a lot of the cartoons that are out there. It seemed like it happened over night that’s he’s been all about super heroes and robots!
On this DVD, there are five episodes with complete DVD runtime of 110 minutes. This DVD is following a few others but stands well with the stories on it’s own, though I would recommending getting the entire collection.This DVD has a mystery theme so that makes it pretty fun for the month of October. Lots of events are going on that just don’t make any sort of sense but the Rescue Bots are there to save the day! the stories were written well and though there’s a bit of spooky here and there, it’s never frightening! Episode titles are:
- The Haunting Of Griffin Rock
- Blame The Gremlins
- Feed The Beast
I believe my son will be watching the Rescues Bots for awhile and even my 6 year old daughter likes to watch along side him. It’s a great show that is full of fun, action, and positive themes! I highly recommend it!
