You can leave it to Fireman Sam to keep the tiddlers amused on car journeys and this 6 story collection does the job very nicely indeed. Coming in at about an hour all told - roughly 10 mins per story - they're just the right length to keep small fans of the TV series engaged.

As our 4 year old has now become too old for many of the basic nursery rhyhme CDs out there and filling our car glove box, we wanted something to help pass the numerous long car journeys.

He absolutely loves this as he can still nosey out the window, yet enjoy stories he knows and loves from the TV programme but in story form.

Using the same voices as the TV programme it makes it instantly recognisable for children.

A great purchase for any Sam fan!

I really have never paid much attention to Fireman Sam or it's stories and thought it would be a wasted purchase. Much to my delight I have endured some pretty quiet car journeys, he always asks for it to be on so he doesn't only respond to fancy Disney movies. Hoorah!

But, there is a sting in the tale. You find yourself repeatedly singing the Fireman Sam theme tune, this is both embarrassing and soul destroying. It doesn't matter if you listen to thrash metal for 5 days solid, as soon as you stop you'll be humming it. I wonder if they have put some sort of subconscious seed in my mind to go and buy a load of Fireman Sam toys at Christmas.....Think I'll book myself into the local mental hospital to have myself checked out.

Another issue is you don't really listen to the stories properly but quickly realise that whoever this Norman character is, you really want to stick him in a padded box and nail it to the floor. Every story circulates around him doing something stupid. Also, each story merges into one as an adult so you'd swear they were always the same.

One final point, you can never play your music in the car, that stops, only Fireman Sam can grace the air in your car.

....Who or where is Norman's father?

As other reviewers have noted, it was not obvious from the listing that this was actually an audiobook - the CD contains six episodes from the TV series, with the original voices and a narrator to fill in the gaps. Each runs for around ten minutes, and is excellent for keeping small fans of Fireman Sam quiet in the car, just the right length of time to keep their attention.

Recommended.

Ideal "in car" and "at home" entertainment and since it's all on the one CD it's ideal to play and leave when you are busy !
The little ones loved it and it kept them engrossed, giving the opportunity for the grown ups to do some useful housework at home.
I have not used it in the car but as a negative point I do fear that the voices might put me off my driving ? On the whole though it's a very useful form of entertainment .

A great, entertaining CD which is ideal for car journeys as well as at home. The character's voices as far as I could tell were the same as in the TV series, so it's easy to tell who's talking, and the extra narration fills in the gaps. With six stories based on the much loved TV series, this is going to one of those CDs that's going to be played over and over again.

Sometimes it's just too much hassle reading a kid a bedtime story; let somebody else do all the work for a change. All you need's a CD player or a DVD player and this audiobook CD (plus an optional set of headphones if you want some peace).

The CD contains six gently didactic tales from Pontypandy:

1.) Hearts on Fire
2.) Pontypandy Extreme
3.) Elvis Sings the Blues
4.) Blow Me Down
5.) Three Legged Race
6.) Norman's Ark

The stories are expertly written, acted and produced, guaranteed to engage anyone who likes watching everyone's favourite Welsh fireman on TV.

A really great CD for the youngsters. Using the same voices they are familiar with in the TV show these stories make great entertainment. This CD is ideal for a car journey or if you've bought your youngster their own player they will have hours of fun listening again and again to these great stories.
