Finding Dory

Thanks to Subway Restaurants® and Disney.Pixar we were invited to attend an advanced screening of Finding Dory. Finding Dory brings us back underwater as Marlin and Nemo help Dory this time to find her family. Finding Dory is a sweet movie where we follow Dory, the friendly-but-forgetful blue tang fish as she goes on a journey across the ocean to find parents she cannot really remember. Marlin and Nemo go with to support and help her along the way, however unexpected events occur and they ca...

Bananas in Pyjamas: Banana-tastic DVD

Banana-tastic_dvd_review The Bananas in Pyjamas TV show is a timeless classic! As a young girl I used to giggle at the chasing game at the beginning of each episode, and my favourite character was Lulu (mostly because I loved the name Lulu haha!). Of course Bananas in Pyjamas is now very animated and brightly coloured in comparison to when I used to watch it! "B1 and B2, their friends the Teddies and the ever mischievous Rat in a Hat romp their way through the magical world of Cuddlestown. There are some new friends ...

In The Night Garden: Fun and Games DVD

in the night garden dvd review "In the Night Garden...is about a magical picture book place that exists between waking and sleeping in a child's imagination. Words, rhymes and music carry the viewer through a happy world of loveable characters and nursery rhyme nonsense." My 20 month old & 3.5 year old sons both just LOVE In The Night Garden: Fun & Games DVD. The main thing I like about it is that they love it so much, they sit down quietly for the duration of the episode: normally unheard of for my boys! ...

This interactiv...

The Wiggles meet the Orchestra

wiggles_meet_the_orchestra_dvd My son aged three found the Wiggles Meets the Orchestra DVD to be very mesmerising and he was totally captured with the visual production. He got up and started dancing to the first song “Henry’s Dance” and so did I. The Wiggles are a team of interactive colourful people that are aimed...

Hey Duggee: The Super Squirrel Badge & 9 Other Stories DVD

hey_duggee_dvd Hey Duggee is a new BBC kids TV series aimed at 2-5 year olds. The description on the DVD reads as follows: "Duggee is a lovable brown dog who runs The Squirrel Club; a place where children take part in all sorts of exciting activities and earn badges for their accomplishments.

Each story uses natural soundscapes and calming spoken rhythms to encourage relaxation. They focus on slowing the child’s breathing and encourage the child to listen quietly, all the while gently lulling them into a sleepy state. Dinosnores offer a r...
