How Things Are Made
The Magic of Making is a charming collection of short videos that take you behind the factory door and the farm gate to discover how everyday things are made.
Aimed at 3-9 year-olds, their unique combination of education, entertainment and humour make our videos appeal to a wide age-range. Even grown-ups get hooked!
But don't just take our word for it: read the feedback we've received (below) and watch Church Bells in full to see why kids, parents and teachers all give The Magic of Making the thumbs-up!
These are brilliant! PROPER children's television! When are you making more please?? Thank you!

My son is 23 months, just loves them and asks me to put them on constantly - over and above other favourites. Thank you for a great educational and entertaining DVD.
Mrs W Wills, Devon
It is truly a wonderful piece of TV viewing. It feeds the natural curiosity for the things around us that kids have and that adults have too often forgotten. Please keep making more.

My kids and I watch these films over and over again, even my wife takes an interest! This is classic TV, informative, classy, entertainment. Well done - it's what TV was meant for.
The kids just love them - they have watched them so many times. They are a great way of education, too. Keep producing them - they will be passed on to the younger grandchildren - if the first ones will part with them!

I bought volume 1 for my daughter years ago, she is now 8 years old and still loves to watch it over and over again. She has recently asked me to buy her more as a birthday present!
What a fantastic set of DVDs! My boys (aged 3 and 7) are big fans, thoroughly enjoying the content and fast pace of each series. Well done!
