DVD Review : Fun on The Farm

Have a tractor addict in your family? Or do your kids dream of growing up to be farmers? John Deere's new children's dvd Fun On The Farm might be exactly what your looking for!

You know, this dvd was sitting at the bottom of my dvd review pile as I really honestly didn't think we'd get into it. Connor however pulled it out and insisted I move it to the top. The dvd shows all sorts of things about farms from how crops are grown and harvested to different types of tractors and farm equipment and even takes it's viewers on a trip to a Farm exhibit at the Chicago Lincoln Park Zoo (Chris's home turf and a zoo we all love!). What I really didn't expect is how much we would really enjoy it. Especially the "wacky" farm bits where crops grow pizza, seeing as that's the favorite meal around here I would seriously have some of those plants around if they were real! Though personally my favorite was the included dvd game, The Cloud Game, where you have to find the figure in the cloud. I've been catching myself ever since staring out the window looking for animals in the sky, something I haven't done since I was a child.

Fun On The Farm is around forty minutes long and boasts some pretty entertaining songs and cute skits and is really geared towards the preschool range of viewers. Older kids may find it entertaining but may loose interest as it's really more about the images and educational value than having a real story. I really wish we had this dvd a few years ago when Connor's cousin was obsessed with combines! He would have been glued to the tv watching this one over and over!

Fun on The Farm is available right now on dvd and you can pick up your copy on Amazon!
