How'd they build THAT? Trucks and Firetrucks!

My son loves seeing big machinery and vehicles! He was so excited to see the two new videos
released~just today, November 18th! How'd They Build That? is a new DVD series from Marvelous Media.
Big Truck and Fire Truck are great movies to learn about how these great vehicles are made/assembled and where they come from. Navistar's International Truck assembly plant in Springfield Ohio is one of the largest builders of big transport trucks in America. The trucks are shown in the assembly process from the beginning to finish. My son was totally amazed to see all the robots and machinery used to build the trucks. The DVD also shows how these Big Trucks work from a drivers view. Seagrave Fire Apparatus, which is the oldest continuously operating fire truck manufacturer in the US, shows their factory as they build large fire trucks from the very beginning in the How'd They Build That? Fire Truck. Viewers can see how the custom fire truck is designed and built using machinery. The DVD shows the variety of styles of trucks and engines. Showing different models, the DVD explains what purpose the Fire Trucks all serve. Future titles in the How’d They Build That? series will include School Bus, Garbage Truck, Locomotive, Big Earth mover, Concrete Mixer Truck, Military Machines and more. The DVDs are recommended for ages 4 and older and will retail for $8.99. For more information or to order contact Marvelous Media 888-251-3661 or visit http://www.marvelousmedia.net/.
