With over an hours worth of fantastic adventures from CiTV’s most successful animated series.

Episodes …

Horrid Henry It’s All Your Fault
Horrid Henry’s convinced that it’s not his fault, even when it is!

Horrid Henry In Detention
Horrid Henry lands everyone in detention, but will he manage to get them all out again in time for that all important football match?

Horrid Henry Delivers The Milk
One horrid move too far and Horrid Henry finds he’s got a new job, which means getting up very early indeed!

Horrid Henry And The New Best Friend
Horrid Henry gets himself a new best friend, but it’s not long before Nice Nicola turns into Nasty Nicola, and things go from bad to worse.

All three of my children love the horrid Henry series and both of the older children, little man 12 and his sister Alice Sara 10, have enjoyed both the CiTV series along with the book collection. Now the toddler, Harley age 3, is fast becoming an avid fan of this Mischievous little character.

This particular DVD has been an instant hit with the kids and I’ve also found myself engaging in a little Horrid Henry when the toddler has demanded that I do so (wink, wink).

Anyone thinking of purchasing the DVD has my recommendation, after all, its not every day your children are quiet for an entire hour, managing to reframe from fighting with one another is it?

A Picnic on the Moon

19 May

My 2-year old may be going through them “terrible twos” where’s his ability to throw a tantrum at the drop of a hat for no apparent reason occurs all to frequently, but his still at that really cute stage too!

This maybe hard to picture when your toddler is fast becoming a real little handful but it’s very much the case.

I love watching my 2 year old sons interest evolve, that almighty smile that breaks out across his cute little face when his excited about something or another!

At the present moment, besides his beloved ‘Bob the Builder’ and that magical engine ‘Thomas the Tank Engine’… His now totally nuts on Peppa pig and Ben and Holly’s Little kingdom. So when asked to review the newest DVD release of ‘Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom – The Elf Games” how could I refuse?

Harley was a very lucky boy as we got sent the pre-release copy of ‘The Elf Games’ which was officially released on DVD for the worlds Ben and Holly fans to enjoy on the 14th May 2012.

Episodes include…
Elf Games
Cows
The Toy Robot
Dinner Party
Big Bad Barry
King Thistle’s Birthday
The Wand Factory
Daisy and Poppy’s Pet
The Elf Rocket
Picnic on the Moon

As a grown woman it’s a little disturbing that I’m about to admit the fact that I found myself almost sucked into the world of Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom during more than one of the listed episodes above! Now, some may argue that I just don’t get out much, to some degree I’d defiantly agree, nonetheless, hand in the air, I admit… I quite enjoyed it! 🙂

Yes, it was a tad hard not to, especially the last two episodes that caused Harley to chant “Again… Again” every time they came to an end!

The last two episodes are in fact one, this is because “The Picnic on the Moon” is a follow on from the “Elf Rocket”
Both are really sweet and surprisingly funny especially when nanny plum gets sucked out the rocket looking for a toilet, then bops about in the atmosphere in-till she’s rescued! Part two carries on the humour when nanny plum causes one of her famous jelly floods on the moon. This turns it red, well, in-till the aliens happily eat it all up returning the moon to its natural state. But by far the best bit was just how they got back to earth… I won’t spoil it but it had myself and the toddler giggling.

‘Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom – The Elf Games’ gets a big thumbs up from the toddler who is actually practising magic every time his cross with someone “I do magic on you….” is his new favourite turn of phrase.
