School is starting back, so that means time for more STEM!!! If you are not familiar with STEM, you will be soon... at least I wasn't familiar with it, until we ventured into the world of Elementary School. Now we know, but I am so happy to know that we have a cute TV show that he can watch so that he learns more. (You know, it makes it more fun to learn when you don't realize you are learning!)
Nickelodeon's educational animated preschool show Blaze and the Monster Machines races back onto screens with Blaze and the Monster Machines: High-Speed Adventures. In this four-episode thrill ride, amazing monster truck Blaze and his driver, AJ, use scientific principles to tackle problems and help their monster machine friends out of some sticky situations. Plus, preschoolers can help win a sailboat race using the right parts and wind power, and team up with Pickle for Team Truck Challenge Day! Blaze and the Monster Machines is the only preschool show on TV to comprehensively cover all areas of STEM in every episode and it's currently the number-one preschool show in its time period. Created by Nickelodeon and distributed by Paramount Home Media Distribution, Blaze and the Monster Machines: High-Speed Adventures races onto DVD on August 11 for the suggested retail price of $14.99.
Blaze and the Monster Machines: High-Speed Adventures DVD includes:
- Bouncy Tires - When Zeg the dinosaur truck accidentally puts on a set of "Super Bouncy Tires," he bounces out of control! Now Blaze and AJ have to experiment to find a substance adhesive enough to stop their bouncing buddy.
- Stuntmania - Darington has built the ultimate stunt track and every Monster Machine in town is coming to see the show. When a jealous Crusher tricks Darington and sends him far, far away, it's up to Blaze and AJ to rescue him.
- Epic Sail - Crusher and Pickle challenge Blaze and his friends to a sailboat race, but when he tries to cheat, Crusher accidentally crashes both ships onto a tropical island. Now Blaze and his crew must find the missing pieces of their ship so they can sail back home.
- Team Truck Challenge - It's the day of the Team Truck Challenge, a race where all the trucks get to compete in teams of two. When Crusher chooses a new partner instead of his sidekick Pickle, his pal teams up with Blaze to prove his mettle.
