Blaze and the Monster Machines: High-Speed Adventures. In this four-episode thrill ride, amazing monster truck Blaze and his driver, AJ, use scientific principles to tackle problems and help their monster machine friends out of some sticky situations. Plus, preschoolers can help win a sailboat race using the right parts and wind power, and team up with Pickle for Team Truck Challenge Day! Blaze and the Monster Machines is the only preschool show on TV to comprehensively cover all areas of STEM in every episode and it's currently the number-one preschool show in its time period. Created by Nickelodeon and distributed by Paramount Home Media Distribution,

Epic Sail - Crusher and Pickle challenge Blaze and his friends to a sailboat race, but when he tries to cheat, Crusher accidentally crashes both ships onto a tropical island. Now Blaze and his crew must find the missing pieces of their ship so they can sail back home.

B was thrilled to receive this DVD! I don't know many little boys who don't love monster trucks, and my boy is no exception. We don't often get to see this show on television, so to be able to pop the DVD in after school, is a wonderful treat for us. We're able to take the DVD along with us on trips, which comes in handy on long car trips to the beach, etc. We love Blaze because he's cool and fun, but he's also a gentle, helpful friend. Every day, he's learning new life lessons, with the help from some of our favorite characters.
High Speed Adventures is filled with exciting episodes, where the characters must work as a team to solve puzzles, complete daring rescues, and more! As with other popular Nick Jr. shows, teamwork and friendship is a recurring theme, which makes me so happy to see. There are way too any shows out on television these days which are filled with fighting and violence- not something I want my son to see. Nick Jr. offers so many lovable programs and characters for kids, this being one of our favorites!
