Olly & his friends are back on our screens with all new episodes of Olly The Little White Van!
Olly (voiced by the fabulous Justin Fletcher aka Mr Tumble, Justine’s house & loads more besides) is the most helpful little white van in town, doing errands for everyone, and being helpful in anyway he can
Olly, teaches our children this important message throughout the first series (Harley reviewed last year). Now his returned to do it all again in series 2, which consists of some 52 x 5 minute episodes, aired on Mini CITV every weekdays at 9.45 AM and then again at 12.45 Lunchtime.
Harley, has been incredible lucky and has been invited to review the second series which was sent to us on a sample dvd. I was confident he’d enjoy it, given his love of the first series and in all honesty, I could do with seeing some new episodes considering he had really worn out the last lot (Kids never seem to get bored of watching the same thing over and over again)!
Olly is just as energetic & cute as ever, as he continues to do what he does best “Helping others” Bazza (Olly’s best friend) is still getting himself into light-hearted mischief, and a host more adventures are had with Stan Olly’s driver in episodes such as the Bumpton Cup.
We received the dvd via royal mail a few weeks back, though Harley didn’t actually get to watch it till yesterday morning! He actually posted the dvd into his Early Learning Post Box, causing me to spend the best part of 2 weeks searching high and low for it… just as I was about to give up, Harley the Little Postman delivered the dvd to me, along with the words, “Mum… What’s that?” Nonetheless, it was worth the wait, giving Harley something to enjoy on a Saturday morning and myself the chance to get “Mummy stuff done”
Of course he loved it! His watched it again this afternoon before finally crashing out for a Sunday lunchtime nap.
The online website is just as great as when we last checked. I’m loving how it has a facts and fun activities section, which contains a number of PDF downloadable fact-sheets and activities, which have been designed with the help of a child psychologist and number of parenting experts to encourage your child to be helpful on a daily basis.
Plus there’s a fabulous kids section, packed with fun colouring in activities and a host of games & puzzles to keep them busy.
What’s more, Olly the little white van is currently running a fun & exciting competition with the most amazing prize, one I’m sure will delight any young Olly fan!
If your Little one just can’t resist belting out that catchy theme tune as the credits run, get out your video camera or mobile phone and start filming! Why? Because they could potentially win the opportunity to meet the man behind the voice, “Justin Fletcher” himself!
There is no mistaking it, Olly The Little White Van, which first hit our screens back in June 2011 is something of a raving success, that just looks set to get bigger and better with each episode. With new toys, games and apps, set to launch this spring (sometime after Easter) plus the edition of exciting collectable die-cast models, brought to us by ‘Hornby’ (see my Toy fair 2012 post) Olly & his fun gang of friends, look set to be around for a long time yet! Harley for one couldn’t be more pleased!
