Today, we had the wonderful pleasure of returning to one of our favorite places for Jersey fun, Diggerland. In celebration of Sprout’s new show Terrific Trucks we were hosted for a lunch and afternoon of play.


About the Sprout Channel’s Terrific Trucks

Terrific Trucks

Terrific Trucks is a live action series that features REAL trucks in a REAL world setting as they figure out the best way to tackle tough projects and simple everyday problems. Routed in problem-solving, each episodes follows the trucks from their morning meeting at their construction site homebase to actually doing the work on site and then home again for a wash-up and a recap of the lesson learned. With all the digging, lifting, and loading, Terrific Trucks is an active celebration of teamwork. The trucks come in all shapes and sizes. Common Sense Media gives it a terrific rating, which you can see here.


After the kids were done ‘digging’ into healthy foods they had ‘loaded’ onto their plates, their appetites were ‘crushed’. With some words from Amy, from Sprout, kids settled into the bean bags to watch two episodes of Terrific Trucks.

He’s ready for the premiere episode of Sprout Channel’s Terrific Trucks.


After a terrific viewing of Terrific Trucks we were in for a special treat, a Diggerland stunt show. Diggerland has them every day, but we recorded part of today’s stunt show live on Facebook.

If the day wasn’t terrific enough… all the kids and their families continued their fun with an afternoon at Diggerland. So while the kids played I couldn’t help thinking about the show and some terrific reasons why you and your family will want to tune in to see it.
