Blaze and the Monster Machines Premiere!
Blaze is a cool monster truck who embarks on action-packed adventures with his best friend and driver, AJ. Together they use scientific thinking to help their friends and fellow monster trucks in Axle City.
In the special hour-long premiere "Blaze of Glory," Blaze and his driver AJ are introduced to a world of racing Monster Machines. When a cheating truck named Crusher uses naughty tricks to try and win the Championship Race, Blaze will do everything he can to help his friends and beat Crusher to the finish line.
Some of our top bloggers have been reviewing the Blaze and the Monster Machines first episode for us in conjunction with our Twitter Party and here’s what they thought.
We bring you one great review from one of our top bloggers;
Last Friday we took part in a Blaze and the machines twitter party. This twitter party was unlike one we had done before. Our party box arrived and it contained lots of scientific and engineering experiments. I was really excited, the engineer in me wanted to play.
The girls were very excited too.
The girls and their friends sat down to do a blaze and the machine maze whilst I got the TV ready to watch the first episode.
We of course needed some snacks to watch our first episode with so we made our very own chocolate cars. The tongue of concentration came out for these. They did not last very long building chocolate carstongue of concentration just long enough for us to race them chocolate car races.
After watching Blaze and the machines on Nick Jr we were very excited to build our own cars. It was such a fun activity. We got to think about the build and design our cars. It was a lot of fun and after we had built them we all began to race them.

As well as engineering activities we also had maths. Counting and sorting. We made activities for all the different ages at our party
lots of buttons
Science was the next order of the day, and we began to look at what objects float and which sink. This was a favourite with my youngest, she loves water. She took great pride it testing each object and even tried herself.

Our final activity came from Great Gizmos who provided us with some great 4M scientific experiments..
