My Thoughts:

Since receiving this DVD for review a little over a week ago, we have already seen it half a dozen times.  At first, I didn't think Savannah would be into Fireman Sam, as she doesn't usually watch it on television.  But, as soon as I put it on, she sat quietly on the couch and watched to see what it was about.  And, like other HIT Entertainment DVDs, in less than five minutes, she was off the couch and dancing and moving around.  Even though this animated series is not full of song and dance like others Savannah watches, she was drawn in by the characters.  Every time the fire truck left the station, she would race around the living room, like she was off to help fight a fire. It was so cute to watch.  And, each and every time we were done watching the episodes, she would ask for more.

Do you have a Fireman Sam fan in your house?  If you do, why not surprise them with this holiday-themed DVD?  It would make for a great stocking stuffer, or to watch and get into the spirit of the holidays.  I know who will be watching this DVD in the coming weeks. :-)

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.
