My children have always enjoying watching Fireman Sam – so when I was asked if they’d like a sneak preview of new movie Fireman Sam: Set For Action, we jumped at the chance. This brand new film is airing on Cartoonito on Monday 22nd October at 8am – and last week, Stanley, Wilfred and Mabel were given the chance to become mini film reviewers for the afternoon (and they took their role very seriously, glued to the screen throughout the film!)
Cartoonito sent the children some ‘Fireman Sam’ gifts to set the scene – and Mabel watched a lot of the film in her fireman hat, totally gripped by the story!
Fireman Sam: Set For Action is about Fireman Sam going viral on the internet after a daring rescue is filmed and uploaded onto “Pontypandy Planet Online”. Fireman Sam is suddenly a star and is invited to take part in a movie, which remakes the rescue. The film is all about what happens next, with Fireman Sam trying to do his best on the film, despite the meddlings of his Hollywood actor co-star Flex Dexter.
My children are aged between 6 and 2 years old – and all three enjoyed this movie. Mabel just adores anything to do with Fireman Sam – and I think the inclusion of the viral internet clip and movie set was enough to keep my YouTube-savvy 6-year old gripped too. I enjoyed it too and thought it was very clever to bring Pontypandy up-to-date with the inclusion of “Pontypandy Planet Online” and Hollywood actors.
If your children are off school for half term on Monday morning, this is the perfect way to kick start the holidays. Younger toddlers and pre-schoolers will enjoy it very much too, especially if they enjoy Fireman Sam – I was really impressed with how it held Mabel’s attention (so you may even get to drink a hot cup of coffee, which is a real win on a Monday morning!)
Thank you for giving us the chance to watch it Cartoonito – and I hope you all enjoy it as much as we did on Monday morning!
