DVD Releases For August 25, 2008
Available now on DVD, Bob the Builder introduces future builders to the wonderful world of construction in BOB THE BUILDER On Site: Houses & Playgrounds, an all-new DVD Special from Lionsgate and HIT Ent. This live-action and animated DVD is bigger and better than ever, including the fun BOB THE BUILDER animation kids love, paired with custom footage of houses and playgrounds under construction featuring real dirt movers, construction workers and on-site building.
Bob the Builder knows what it takes to build a hardy house and a safe playground, and he wants to share his knowledge with you. Combining vivid animation with live-action footage of real construction equipment in action, Bob and his Can-Do Crew break down the building process into engaging, easy-to-follow segments demonstrating teamwork, safety and the role of each machine.
Future contractors learn about making a detailed plan, what materials to use and the different kinds of homes and playgrounds, including the three stages of building a house: foundation, walls and a roof, and the three stages of building a playground: equipment, surface and fencing. See recycled tires, old tin cans and solar panels used to make houses environmentally friendly, and revel in giant machines demolishing old houses to build new ones. From demolition to framing to roofing, young builders experience the thrilling and exciting world of building construction. Also, you can sing along with the catchy "How Do You Build a House" and see how a skate park is built complete with ramps, slopes, dips and lots of turns.
A new season of BOB THE BUILDER -- Project Build It will air in September on PBS KIDS, where Bob's building adventures continue in Bobland Bay.
DVD Special Features Include:
