Our Thoughts...

The Bots are back and ready for action! B is a huge fan of Transformers Rescue Bots. For a while, I thought we were going to have to re-do his bedroom to incorporate these heroic bots. The Rescue Bots stories take place in Griffin Rock, a city that is majorly technologically advanced. B and I actually learn a lot about science and robotics when we watch this show, and he has definitely taken more of an interest in science because of it.

Rescue Bots Return of the Heroes DVD features B's favorite bots- Chase, Boulder, Heatwave, and Blades- bots diguised as rescue vehicles, charged by Optius Prime to live and work among the humans in Griffin Rock. Together with the Burns family, the bots work to keep the peace, and perform rescue mission when needed. Often times the tech goes haywire, and the bots must save the day!

For us, the best thing about this collection or Rescue Bots episodes, is that these episodes feature the return of Bumble Bee and Optimus Prime. Since B is (absolutely) not old enough to see the Transformers films, this is a wonderful alternative. Like a lot of children, B loves Bumble Bee, and thinks Optimus is so, so cool! Peter Cullen (AKA Optimus Prime) makes voice cameos in these episodes, and my husband thinks it is so cool that the original Optimus is included! He gets to share a bit of his love for Transformers with our son, in these age-approprite aniated episodes of a well-loved series.

One of the things that I like and appreciate about the Rescue Bot series, is that it really caters to young children, and refrains from using language in the script that I don't want my child hearing or repeating. There are some suspenseful situations, and there is light humor, as well, which makes it more enjoyable for the adults. Rescue Bots really teaches kids about what it means to be a true hero, and how to work with others as a team, with everyone working toward a common goal for the greater good.
