Here at Coombe Mill we know just how popular anything related to machines is to children. Our morning Tractor rides couldn’t be more popular, bursting with little ones keen to help Farmer Nick drive and to ride in the trailer. During the afternoon there is a ways a waiting queue for a train ride with Guy and if Farmer Nick is spotted out with his digger in the day it always causes a stir.
Machines aren’t just for Geeks
The clever folk at Nickelodeon studios put their universal success down to putting kids’ needs first. Like us they soon recognised the fascination with all machines and turned this in to a hit children’s series based on a set of rather extraordinary machines. By creating machine characters, giving them some superpowers and making them both male and female Nickelodeon have developed a series that appeals widely to all youngsters.
About Blaze and the Monster Machines – Blaze of Glory
Grab yourself a comfy chair and be prepared for an hour of monster machine fun as Blaze, the fastest machine in town, and his driver AJ prepare for the Monster Dome’s Championship Race.
Of course things are never straight forward and Blaze will need to use his special turbo powers and extraordinary scientific knowledge to stay one step ahead of Crusher’s dirty tricks. Will blaze be able to use his cunning stunts, superior science know how and new found friends to keep his reputation as Axle City’s greatest hero?
This is the DVD to inspire youngsters about science from an early age. All the other machines look up to Blaze as the one who knows everything about science, maths, technology and engineering. He is the truck everyone turns to for help as he can do things no other truck can. When Starla the cowgirl truck loses a piston, it is Blaze who has to be quick of the mark using all his force and skill to get to it before Crusher gets his greedy tires on it!
Blaze and his driver AJ are best friends and make an awesome team. Together they believe they can take on any machine, bring on the championship race and prepare for the ride.
