Review & Giveaway – Fireman Sam : Sam’s 30th Birthday

Who doesn’t love Fireman Sam? I can’t believe he is turning 30! I used to watch him when I was small and then with my younger brother, so it’s something I want to do with my baby girl. She loves all the new cartoons and children’s programmes already but I want to get her into the older shows, like Fireman Sam. He is timeless and never ages!

Fireman Sam -Sam's Birthday







Everybody’s favourite fireman is back with a new DVD collection of tales and rescue in “Fireman Sam – Sam’s Birthday”, released by Abbey Home Media on Monday 3rd April.

Fireman Sam is marking 30 years on our screens in 2017, and is set to celebrate in this new collection of tales from the ultimate hero next door and his crew. Fireman Sam lives in the accident-prone town of Pontypandy, where he helps with fighting fires, manning the lifeboat, helping the mountain rescue, or joining up with the emergency medical services. With his colourful cast of helpers, he is always there to lend a hand!

In this new DVD release it’s Fireman Sam’s birthday and Charlie has asked Joe to make Sam a remote control model of Jupiter as a surprise present. At the Fire Station, Station Officer Steele has told Sam, as it’s his birthday, he should relax for the day. However, will the birthday party go ahead as planned for everyone’s favourite hero next door? 

Episodes featured in this charming collection are:- Sam’s Birthday; Pontypandy in the Park; Paddle On; The Great Party Panic and Pizza Pandemonium. 

 Our Review

Baby Girl watching Fireman Sam

Baby girl was engrossed in Fireman Sam most of the whole way through, which at 50 minutes for the whole DVD is a great feat! I was happily watching it alongside her. For me it’s changed quite a bit, the animations of course have been updated and it seem’s the activities and challenges that Fireman Sam gets involved in seem bigger. It’s not just a cat stuck up a tree anymore in Pontypandy!

Overall we loved it and I’m sure it will become a part of our favourite DVD collection.
