Good medium to teach fire safety to your child.
Verified purchase
My son loves fireman Sam and has watched this movie over and over without getting bored. It is a suitable show for a 4 year old to watch. We often take the iPad on long car trips and this is always the first movie my son will select to watch. It also is a good medium to use to talk with your children about how firefighters help people and general fire safety information. Our son now knows what to do when he hears the fire alarm. He even told us at school that the teacher did not know to leave the building when the fire alarm went off at school. He was so proud that he knew just what to do in such a situation and was not afraid if there was or wasn't a fire.

My son has been in love with Fireman Sam since he was 2. He's now 5. He was so disappointed when we could no longer find it on Netflix. To our surprise, we found it when we became a part of the Amazon Prime family. This provides with age appropriate TV time and I love it. Although his older siblings (10 & 8) whine when he chooses the show, they stay in the room & watch too! Score!

Grandma loves Fireman Sam.

I love this cartoon. Of all the children's shows I watch with my three year old granddaughter, this is my favorite. The countryside looks like rural England but the accents are American. I wish they had kept the original British ones. It must be made in England. Such fun and funny scenarios that fireman Sam has to rescue folks out of. I enjoy the sweet themes and valuable lessons it teaches without being "preachy."

As far as animated shows for kids go, this one isn't that bad since we watch it a little more regularly (every other day) that I would prefer. The animation is OK. The plot is OK, but it does make you wonder how someone in a town like Pontypandy is able to get insurance. I mean people are starting fires, getting swept out to sea, or injuring themselves with shocking regularity. It's probably a good thing there aren't more people in Pontypandy since I doubt the three fireman could keep up. One thing that is annoying about the show is that they decided to overdub the original voices for some strange reason. They've done it with show and the other Fireman Sam shows which is bizarre since we are all speaking English, right?

Wrong region code!
Verified purchase
I purchased this for my son, who was very excited to watch it. I put the DVD in, and the DVD player said something to the effect of, "sorry, can't play this because it's for the wrong region." Seriously? Why would you sell a DVD in the US if it's coded for the Europe? It says "Made in England" on it, so I assume that it is coded for Europe.

Recommend for Preschoolers who Love first Responders, Heroes, and Action.

Fireman Sam is a firefighter, a hero, a good uncle, and a very good man. The town's people and other firefighters are interesting and diverse. The action is great but not over the top. Very much geared to the preshool set. My four year old grandson loves it!

UK & US DVD's not compatible.
Verified purchase
The sender isn't the problem, they did everything right. I got the item promptly and in mint condition. I just wish I knew ahead of time that it wouldn't be compatible with my US DVD player. Maybe a disclaimer would be nice (?)

We love Sam in our House
Verified purchase
One word of caution on this one - the subject is a forest fire that threatens to burn down the entire village of Pontypandy. Although suspenseful, it got my kid a little alarmed at first. He got over it, but be cautious if you have a younger kid or one who is sensitive to scary situations on TV.

My three-year-old son is hooked on Fireman Sam, which we are streaming for free with Prime. The movies are great because the series episodes are only 11 minutes long, meaning I have to start them up over and over again. The content of the series is great, always appropriate and with a good, positive, safety-related message for the kids.
