#Win A Family Ticket To See Ben And Holly’s Little Kingdom Live On Stage

18 Sep

A while back I told you about how Ben and Holly from the little kingdom, would be doing their first ever live tour! I also told you that I’ll be giving readers of the blog the chance to win themselves a family ticket to attend the show! True to my word I’m here today doing just that!

As it was sometime ago when I first told you all about the live show I’ve included this little recap.

From the makers of Peppa Pig and the producers of the two hugely successful Peppa Pig theatre tours comes the first ever stage version of the BAFTA award-winning TV animation, Ben & Holly’s Little Kingdom.

The Little Kingdom – where everyone is very, very small – is home to Princess Holly and her best friend Ben Elf. Holly is a young fairy princess who is still learning how to do magic properly and sometimes her spells don’t work out quite right. Ben is an Elf. Elves don’t do magic but they are very good at making things. Ben doesn’t have wings like Holly but he flies on the back of Gaston the Ladybird.

In this exciting new musical adventure, Ben and Holly have fun and games helping Gaston clean up his messy cave; they go on a trip to The Big World with tooth-fairy Nanny Plum; and still have time to plan a surprise for King Elf’s birthday party, complete with an unplanned jelly flood.

Packed full of games, songs and laughter, this is an enchanting and magical visit to the Little Kingdom, live on stage for the very first time. This beautiful story of elves, princesses and childhood innocence will delight all the family.

This brand new UK tour is on the road from 26 October until July 2013 and I have 1 family ticket up for grabs at the venue of your choice, (subject to availability). A family ticket is for 4 people, minimum 1 adult. The tickets are non-transferable. No cash alternatives, accommodation or travel are provided in this competition.

Win the fabulous Humf & the fluffy thing on DVD

8 Sep

So, the children are back at school and all is going well! It feels nice but a tad strange that no one calls me ten times a day asking me to pick up little man from school! This time last year, I was to scared to even leave the house and venture out to far in case I was called by an unhappy head-teacher demanding I collect my distracting child right away! I actually went with a friend and baby H, to Honeydale farm yesterday, which is around 18 miles away from my home, it felt fantastic to be this carefree for a change. 

 With the rest of the day to waste, me and H snuggled down on the sofa and watched, “Humf and the fluffy thing” We were sent the DVD a few weeks back and had been asked to check it out prior to its formal release. What’s even better is that I get to give one away to one of you lucky readers! 

 Humf and the Fluffy Thing is the brand new delightful adventures of what is undoubtedly, the rising star of pre-school television. Due to be released on 12th September 2011 from Entertainment One, this highly anticipated  DVD includes a bonus disc containing an additional 6 episodes absolutely free! Narrated by leading British actress, Caroline Quentin,  Humf is the story of a lovely furry thing who is full of wonder at the world and is always eager to explore new things. Humf has been entertaining young children and their parents on Nick Jr since 2009, and the show now ranks in Nick Jr’s Top 5.

The DVD contains a total of 16 episodes including those on the free bonus disk.

 Humf and the fluffy thing has an RRP price of £9.99 and is a cert U

With Humf books and toys due to hit our UK stores this autumn, It’s all going on!

 Did we enjoy watching the DVD?

 Well, Little H loved it! We don’t have the Nick Jr channel, so this was new to us.

H is 21 months old and was griped. A very colourful production that keeps even the youngest of toddlers engaged.

Now… Don’t get me wrong, we love Cbeebies in this house, Yet a little bit of Humf was a pleasant change. Each episode is around five minutes long, which is ideal for young children as it stops them becoming bored.

The stories were great, and even I loved the one about the late night party and Humf’s sleeping issues.

Warning

The theme tune is dead catchy (the type that gets stuck in your head)! Do not be surprised if you find yourself humming the tune while engaging in your household chores, taking a shower, or worse dancing and seemingly enjoying it!
