Christmas seems terrifyingly close this year, the big day is thundering ever closer, but I’m pleased to say that I have started my Christmas shopping, whether I’ll ever finish it is another thing altogether. One thing we always get are Christmas DVDs, they’re a nice thing to watch as a family and a nice thing to give as a gift too. CBeebies fans will no doubt be excited by the Kate & Mim Mim – A Christmas Wish DVD which is released on 9th November.
For those not in the know, Kate is a feisty, imaginative 5-year-old girl and Mim-Mim is her purple toy bunny. Whenever she has a problem to tackle or a puzzle to solve, Kate and her purple playmate Mim-Mim twirl off to the magical land of Mimiloo where she and her friends can be anyone and do anything.
The Kate & Mim Mim – A Christmas Wish DVD contains 7 episodes as well as an exclusive music video, this festive DVD makes the ideal Christmas gift for any Kate & Mim Mim fan. It is 88 minutes long and was a popular pick for the small boy who watched it all the way through, which takes some doing for an easily distracted boy.
The DVD contains the following festive episodes –
Kittens & Mittens
While Kate and Mom are looking after a box of kittens, the box tips and they run all over the house. In Mimiloo, a flurry of mitty kats have overtaken Lily and Boomer’s house! Kate cleverly spots something they can use to round up the mitty kats and lead them home to the Winter Waterfalls.
Kate wants to build a snow fort, but there isn’t enough snow in the yard. In Mimiloo, Kate and her friends go snow bowling in the Winter Waterfalls. They use snowballs as bowling balls and snowmen for the pins. But when the gang slides down into an ice cave, Kate will have to think creatively to get them out!
A Storybook Ending
The storybook Mum is reading to Kate is missing its last page! In Mimiloo, Boomer can’t sleep because he’s lost his favourite book so Kate and Mim-Mim team up with their friends to act out the story. Mim-Mim doesn’t like being the big bad boogideebear and creates a clever new ending to the story.
Chilly the Snowman
Kate’s sad because her snowman is melting! In Mimiloo, it’s a sweltering hot day so Kate, Mim-Mim and their friends head to the Winter Waterfalls to cool down – only to find that all the ice is melting! To re-freeze the waterfalls, Kate will have to find Chilly, the snowman who keeps the Winter Waterfalls cold, snowy and frozen.
Kate sees a falling star shoot across the sky and wonders where it landed. In Mimiloo, Kate, Mim-Mim and their friends find the fallen star in the Forever Forest. It’s just a baby, so they must find a way to reunite it with its mama in the nighttime sky.
A Wish for Christmas (double length episode)
It’s a stormy Christmas Eve and Kate worries that Dad won’t get home in time to put the star on the Christmas tree. In Mimiloo, Kate tells her friends all about Christmas, and everyone is excited to send a wish to Santa Claus. But when a blizzard stops their letters in their tracks, it looks like Christmas will be ruined!
Lighter Than Air
While playing catch in the backyard, Kate’s ball goes over the hedge, and Kate is too small to climb over. In Mimiloo, Mim-Mim accidentally squishes one of Gobble’s pumpkins, which makes him wish he was lighter. Using one of Tack’s inventions, he becomes the weight of a balloon! But when the gang runs into trouble, only heavy Mim-Mim can help.
The Kate & Mim-Mim – A Christmas Wish [DVD] is available from a range of retailers including Amazon and has an RRP of £7.99 making it a great stocking filler!
