This is a good value DVD, containing loads of episodes (over 130 mins), which will provide a bit of variety to help stave off the Bob fatigue (among the adults, anyway, I've no doubt kids could sit through the same episode indefinitely!)

My 2 year old twins love it. The reason it doesn't get five stars is some of the other HIT DVDs have a continuous random play feature which alas is missing here and it has lengthy unskippable copyright and logo scenes at the start, which is especially annoying in a children's DVD when you want to get it loaded and playing ASAP!

I think someone bought my daughter a BtB for her first birthday and shes loved him ever since! Shes coming on to 2 now and she still watches all of her BtB DVDs avidly.

This DVD has loads of good episodes but I will say that that the scripts and dialogue arent anywhere near as polished as the more recent ones and there are hints that the writers werent 100% sure about how to write for very young children at the start. (Hence the 1 dropped star)

As an adult who first had to watch the Bobs Big Plan episodes I found it quite interesting to see how it all began and the hints that there might be a love interest with Wendy gave me a good chuckle considering the intended audience age.

For a first time buyer of Bob the Builder, I'd recommend trying your child on a later one (Bobs Big Plan for instance) and if you then feel you want them to have a bumper pack get this DVD as theres 13 episodes on it.

My 18 month old grandson wants me to put this on as soon as he arrives, and loves to stand in front of the tv to dance to the music. I do think he finds the one where Lofty is scared of the dark, rather scarey, but this dvd is well worth the money.

My kids, both girls, absolutely love Bob, the best way to buy the DVD's is by series, otherwise you end up duplicating episodes as I did. Certainly a good value buy

Great DVD at a more than reasonable price.
- the episodes are relatively short (15 minutes) so you can easily limit television exposure
- no violence and sound values
- themes, vocabulary, theme song and characters are ideal for preschool aged children
- not too annoying for parents and relatively visually pleasing
- my son loves it!

Have several Bob compilation videos for our 2.5 year Son which he watches daily and so decided to buy a dvd (so we don't have to constantly rewind the 45 min videos!). Went for the complete 1st series rather than one of the triple packs and glad we did. About half of the episodes on the dvd he had already on the various videos so doubling up, but I think this would have been same if had bought the triple pack dvd sets, perhaps moreso. On this basis I'll continue to buy each complete series in preference to multipacks which will also no doubt duplicate episodes on each other. Of course it was a great buy, our Son won't watch anything other than Bob anyway! Excellent price and value for money. Only reason I've not given it 5 stars is no continuous random play option on the dvd..but hey, my Son doesn't care about that, he'll happily watch the episodes in correct order time after time, and I'm sure he'd give it 5 stars! Excellent value for money without a doubt.

This is an old version of Bob the builder. but very nicely done. My little one loves it and would watch it the whole day if allowed! There is this little thing going on between Bob and Wendy in this series and considering the targeted audience it's bit funny :) But it's so adorably done you cant say anything but cute ! Lol
