Review: CBeebies Play Time DVD

At home, our TV channel of choice is CBeebies, it’s packed with all of his favourites and the small boy loved to wind down after a hard day at school with a snack and some CBeebies. We were sent the CBeebies Play Time DVD which was released on Monday 9th May and the small boy didn’t take long to decide it one of his favourites.

With 12 episodes in the collection, including Teletubbies, Twirlywoos, In The Night Garden, Peter Rabbit, Topsy & Tim, Mike the Knight, The Furchester HotelOctonauts, Q Pootle 5, Ruff–Ruff, Tweet and Dave, Chuggington, and Cloudbabies.

The CBeebies Play Time DVD is a great way of entertaining young children with its familiar, well-loved characters and diverse range of fun and engaging programming.

Although we didn’t sit down and watch the whole DVD in one sitting, he did enjoy the variety of programmes on this DVD, even the ones more suited to younger children he liked. I think maybe he’s watching them from a slightly different perspective and getting something new out of them.

Naturally he had some favourites –

Peter Rabbit – The One That Got Away, when Peter and his friends encounter the legendary “Jack Sharp”, a large trout that even Peter’s father failed to catch, they try to reel the fish in once and for all. But catching a fish is a lot harder than it looks.

Topsy and Tim – In New Pet Topsy and Tim love caring for their new pet rabbit but struggle to agree on his name. When they notice how wiggly his nose is, they know just what to call him.

Mike the Knight – In Hidden Garden Games when Mike, Evie and the Queen have a competition in the Hidden Garden, Mike learns that it’s good to let everyone have a turn to play… and it’s even better when everyone plays together.

Octonauts –  In Mimic Octopus Peso is gathering red algae to cure the sick vegimals but needs the help of a Mimic Octopus to scare off a Moray eel, who uses its striped tentacles to pretend to be a group of poisonous sea snakes.

Chuggington – In Koko’s Puppy Training Koko Koko finds a lost puppy and wants to keep it, but she realises a little girl is looking for the puppy and decides that she needs to take him home.

The CBeebies Play Time DVD is another great collection of CBeebies classics and ideal for keeping the little ones entertained this summer!

CBeebies Play Time DVD is available from a range of retailers from 9th May.
