    Wallace & Gromit's World of Invention sees world-renowned inventor Wallace and his faithful sidekick (turned camera dog) Gromit turn their hand to presenting for the very first time, hosting a six-part series from the basement of 62 West Wallaby Street. They take an enthusiastic look at some real life cracking contraptions, from gadgets that help around the home to the mind-boggling world of space travel and much more in between.

    My Thoughts:

    If you are a fan of Myth Busters, and other invention shows, then you will love this new release, which features Wallace and Gromit as they act as commentators, hosting a series in their basement, showing some wild and crazy inventions, that are actually real.  With 6 jam packed episodes, you will get your invention fix for sure.  My husband is a huge Myth Busters and Shark Tank fan, and loved this DVD.  At first, he wasn't sure he would like it when he saw Wallace and Gromit, as he wasn't familar with this popular BBC television series.  I had seen Wallace and Gromit years ago, and loved how Wallace provided commentary.  From gadgets created for home use to those used in flight and transportation, you will be scratching your head in wonder about many of these wacky and innovative contraptions, as well as wondering if you could recreate these inventions at home.  As soon as my husband was done watching all 6 episodes, I could see the wheels in his head turning, as he wondered about which these inventions he could find use for, and make at home.  Since watching this DVD, he continues to talk about invention ideas he has and wonders if he will be land on the next Wallace and Gromit DVD with his invention.  Hmm...we'll have to wait and see.  :-)

    Disclosure:  I was sent a copy of this DVD from the vendor in order to write up an honest review.  The views above are mine and mine alone.
