"Fun in the sun, down on the farm"

For those not familiar with the format, Tractor Ted should not be confused with Tractor Tom (a CGI animated children's cartoon series). The Tractor Ted films feature real life footage from farms and associated locations (in this case a quarry) introduced and narrated by an animated tractor, Tractor Ted.

The Tractor Ted films feature a series of short informative segments about farming and related activities. Some segments just have simple explanatory narration, others feature a catchy song that will soon have the kids singing along, whilst yet others have basic counting games. When new items are introduced there are large bold captions for those getting to grips with reading.

Tractor Ted in Summertime shows that whilst the crops are all growing there is still plenty to do on the farm, with winter feed to be stored etc. The 40 minute running time features segments on: making hay and silage, repairing the farm tracks with stone from a quarry, scrub clearance, combine harvester, storing grain, baling straw, cultivating, shearing sheep, harvesting potatoes, and a forage harvester. Extras on the DVD include the song segments from the main feature, and clips from some of the other Tractor Ted films.

This DVD has plenty to hold the kids attention with lots of big machines in action and three catchy songs, but not so much footage of animals as on some of the others in the series. Still, a thoroughly entertaining and educational programme that kids will want to watch again and again.
