“OUR BOB'S A REGULAR MR FIXIT”

published 04/08/2001

Keeps the kids happy - need I say more?

Stories can be a bt repetetive - this doesn't seem...

About a year ago, my daughter went to a birthday party and the birthday girl had been given a Bob the builder toy – at the time, I had never heard of him. Now, he is all over the house not to mention the TV. I suppose the first thing to do is to introduce the characters from the show: Bob...

great fun for kids,

Everyone I think has heard of bob the builder and his team of trusty machines, that include Scoop, Lofty, dizzy, muck, Dizzy, Travis, Wendy and co. who help him in his days work around the town. Even my mother, who lives overseas had heard of bob the builder! The website, www.bobthebuilder.com...

“He's no Cowboy”

published 24/10/2003

Great and easy for the kids

None to mention

Can we fix it? Yes we can! I am sure most of you have heard those words, uttered by Bob and his band of merry builders. Those of you from the UK, most certainly, but for those who have not, then I would assume that you have not been a parent or grandparent, or uncle/aunty during the last four or...

Yes he can! Bob the Builder is one of my sons favourite programmes at the moment along with Thomas the tank engine and the tweenies. I hired out two Bob the builder videos per week for him from the local Library and he sits glued to them and then when they are finished he wants them on again and...

During the holidays I have been watching quite a lot of cartoons whilst babysitting my little nephew and ‘Bob the Builder’ is one he really likes. He was so enthralled by it that I decided to by him the video which went down really well with him. The weird thing is that when you watch...

“Can he fix it?”

published 02/08/2000

great

Bob the builder is my toddlers favourite programme. We are often given a rendition of BOB THE BUILDER CAN HE FIX IT........at full pelt! This is actually quite good. One think I like about it is the fact that unlike some toddler tv this programme is not sexist, Wendy gets to fix things as well...

We've all seen him, and yes we all know he can fix it. My youngest being no exception runs mental when Bob comes on off he goes singing at the top of his voice, so it was a natural progressive move that after watching the TV and Videos he would want the PC game. Well we readily parted with the...

“Can he fix it”

published 21/02/2001

very good

can get boring

A excellent animated programme to keep my little nephew occupied, to adults it may not seem much. But trust me it’s excellent for little boys. It may seem repetitive after only watching a few episodes but kids do love it. The most common phrase is ‘Can we fix it’ and then...

Pilchard

Its about building

Bob the builder is in the same mould as postman pat and fireman sam. The program has a builder called Bob who completes building products with his talkative diggers, cement mixers etc. The charm of the program is that as well as Bob there are plenty of other characters and there is always a sub...

This programme is quite short ,it lasts about fifteen minutes. When it came out at first my children used to ask when it was coming on , and they used to look forward to it. But that has all changed, they hardly ever ask about it now , and my oldest child (nearly three) has asked for it to be...

Bob the builder is a very popular childrens cartoon type television program, and toy. Books have been written and many of them used for the bedtime stories for the children. Following suit however of such-like tweenies they have decided to issue a record for the christmas. While this is fine it...

“Can he do it. YES HE CAN.”

Good for the young

none

I think that Bob the Builder is an excellent show for young children. For around a year now my 3 year old brother has been watching the show and has gradually collected all of the videos. I think that the show teaches young children a lot whilst entertaining them. It shows them how to be kind...

“Bobs not bad”

published 12/07/2000

quite interesting- bearable for parents

short program

My little boy loves this one. He isn't really interested in telly, but he is in the grip of Bob fever. He will sit ready to watch ,with my old hard hat on, and his toy toolbelt. Normally I would be quite worried at these early signs of TV addiction, but luckily, as soon as the program is over he...
