Simple yet fascinating look into how simple every day objects are made
10 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can't get enough of this show. The simple, straightforward delivery really allows the viewer to focus on the manufacturing processes without dealing with any drama or attempts at humor.My kids thought it was boring at first, but they are now "addicted" to the show. VERY educational. I only hope the show keeps its current format and does not switch to a flashier one as the show's popularity grows.I have seen shows on the manufacturing of everything from Cricket bats to vinyl records disks and dinosaur skeleton reproductions. If you are curious about the fabrication process involved in the manufacturing of everyday devices, you will also find "How it's Made" hard to turn off.
