Ben and Holly’s little kingdom giveaway

5 Oct

 Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom 

The Tooth Fairy

We got an email a few weeks back alerting us of a new DVD release for pre-schoolers. We were asked to do a review and run a competition of Ben & Holly’s Little kingdom The tooth fairy which is brought to us from the same creators of “Peppa Pig” which Little Harley adores.

 Well, as you can see we agreed, so here we are!

 Here’s what the creators say..

 Budding fairies and mischievous elves are invited into an enchanting little world that’s big on magic in Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom: The Tooth Fairy, the new DVD release from the BAFTA award winning animation.

 Brought to you from the creators of Peppa Pig, Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom: The Tooth Fairy is available to buy from Monday 3rd October 2011 (£12.99 RRP Cert. U, Entertainment One).  The DVD contains 10 exciting episodes that perfectly blend magic, adventure and humour that will delight and engage young fans.

 Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom is a firm favourite on Nick Jr and Channel 5’s Milkshake where boys and girls tune in every day to follow the adventures of Princess Holly and her best friend Ben Elf. Holly is a young fairy who is still learning how to do magic properly. Ben is an elf and elves don’t do magic, but they are very good at making things.  Along with their friends, Ben and Holly have lots of fun and exciting adventures playing together in the Little Kingdom.

 Small in scale but big on magic Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom: The Tooth Fairy is set to sprinkle a magical blend of fairy dust on homes across the land when it is released this autumn.

What we thought…

Despite Harley’s Love for Gorge pig we had never seen any episodes of Ben and Holly (Maybe because we don’t have Sky or Cable TV).

 So, I popped this into the DVD player in the bedroom, snuggled up with my youngest and watched this shortly before his bedtime.

 Harley was interested and kept saying “Look mum” In my opinion his pretty advanced for his 22 months and tends to point out and name lots of things.

Each episode is nice and short which keeps the little ones interested. You get quite a few episodes on the one DVD, ten in-fact which is just enough, though we watched around four before Harley drifted off to the land of happiness, so we watched the remaining six the following day. He must have enjoyed them as he went over to the TV as soon as he woke and asked, “Mummy, where gone?” 

Here’s the episodes you get.

 EPISODE LISTING – The Elf Factory – Ben’s Birthday Card – Books – Betty Caterpillar – Queen Holly – The Woodpecker – The Elf Band – The Ant Hill – Redbeard the Elf Pirate – The Tooth Fairy

 We both enjoyed Ben and Holly (Mummy didn’t have a choice given I’ve watched it a further three times).

Ben and Holly’s  Little kingdom The tooth fairy, is fun bold and colourful. It will keep little ones entertained allowing parents to take a breather (unless like Harley yours wants you to join them).

 You can now buy Ben and Holly’s Kingdom The tooth fairy on DVD as it was released this past Monday the 3rd October from Entertainment One priced at £12.99
