I was very familiar with the original run of Bob the Builder back in the early 2000's as my now 15 year old sister was a toddler then and was always watching the show. Fast forward 17 years and now my four year old son C enjoys the show just as much. He watches milkshake! every morning before preschool and so he fell in love with the show instantly.
I have to admit that I didn't pay much attention to the reboot until we received a copy of the new DVD, Dig This, to review. The first thing that I noticed was that the animation has changed in a fantastic way. The characters look more 3D-like and less blocky. I do miss Neil Morrissey as the voice of Bob but Lee Ingleby makes a great replacement.
The Dig This DVD contains seven fun filled episodes:
- Dig This
- Saffi's Treehouse
- Out of the Woods
- Stormy Weather
- Bear Mountain
- Bentley's Bones
- Home on the Range
The run of episodes show the team tackling any project or problem handed to them, whether it be something small like fixing a roof to building an entire skyscraper. They show the trials and tribulations plus all fun in finally getting the job done.
C is a massive fan of machinery like the ones in Bob the Builder - his favourites are diggers and excavators. The fact that he was able to see them working whilst watching this DVD meant that it really captured his attention. He asked me a lot of questions from what each characters name was to what they were doing and why they were doing it. I definitely think is a great DVD for any current Bob the Builder fan or fans of diggers like my son!
Bob the Builder Dig This DVD has been released via Abbey Home Media and is currently available to buy now from all good retailers.
