Turbo Dogs – Review & Giveaway 5 Winners (Canada only)

My kids and I love to review movies.  it gives us a chance to not only spend time as a family but also gives us a chance to watch new movies that perhaps we would have otherwise not considered and of course for Lee and I to be like kids again and watch cartoons, we do a lot of kid movie reviews for this reason.

When we were given the opportunity to review Turbo Dogs of course I said yes.  It is designed for children ages 4-7 but I will tell you my three year old loved it as much as my 9 and 11 year old did.  Turbo Dogs is based on the book Racer Dogs by Bob Kolar and was created by the producers of Veggie Tales which is another show that we love here.  Turbo Dogs airs on CBC mornings Monday to Friday at 7:15am and 11:45am

As of today the Turbo dogs DVD is available on Amazon.ca for 13.49 Canadian.

Here is a synopsis:
Dash, Mags, GT, Strut, Stinkbert and Clutch are the town’s Turbo Dogs and although they may be fierce competitors on the track and let’s face it, celebrities in the town of Racerville, they always (well almost always) try to remember that winning isn’t everything.  While kids are sure to get caught up in the action-packed storylines and non-stop antics, an emphasis on team work will also see that they zoom away with some rules for the road.

I sat down (as much as one can sit down with a 17 month old on the loose) and watched Turbo Dogs with the kids.  We really enjoyed it, Maddisyn kept yelling about dogs racing cars and the like.  She was very funny to watch while watching the movie.  I found her really enjoying the movies and the characters and it really captured her attention which gave/gives me the time to get stuff done I really need to.  This is one of our movies I know I can pop in and she will sit and watch quietly while Holden naps and I clean, cook or of course blog.  I feel ok letting her watch this over and over again because I love the lessons it teaches her and I find she actually repeats some of the stuff she hears during real life situations.

The total run time of the Turbo Dogs Seaons 1 Volume 1 DVD is 84 minutes.  There are 7 revved up episodes on the DVD each one approximately 12 minutes in length.  Check out this clip from the Turbo Dogs movie:

Turbo Dogs is the winner of many awards including:  2009 Parents Choice Award, Dove Family Seal of Approval (5/5) and  2009 Turbo Dogs (Strut’s Trick/A Star Turn) has been awarded a KIDS FIRST! endorsement by the Coalition for Quality Children’s Media.

Five of my lucky CANADIAN readers will win a copy of Turbo Dogs Season 1.
