This is an interesting movie for preschoolers to watch. It is a full-length movie (a little over an hour) featuring the robot family, the Polies.

It is an interesting adventurous episodes that preschool ages kids tend to enjoy.
This DVD has minimal special features, but they are somewhat interesting for young kids. One is called Burping Baby Bot and in it you select an item to feed the baby and then hear some kind of noise response. The other feature is called Wheres Baby? In this game a baby bot hides in one of three cups and the cups them move around. When they stop you have to choose which one is the one the baby bot is in.
