Can you believe that Postman Pat has been going 30 years? I know, me neither! Although, I used to watch it as a child, and seeing as though I'm 34 now, it shouldn't come as a surprise. However, it is true: Postman Pat, celebrates 30 years of delivery adventure this September. As the longest running animated TV series on the BBC, Postman Pat has captivated audiences for three decades and will be celebrating his birthday in style this autumn with a very 'special delivery'.
I don't know what it is about Pat that draws people in, and I say people because it's not just little ones that like him, parents enjoy watching his stories too. Well, we certainly do. However, we never seem to catch him at the right time of day, therefore when we were sent an advance copy of the limited edition ‘Happy Birthday Pat’ DVD to review, I was over the moon.
This special DVD will be available from 12thSeptember from all retailers, and includes eight special episodes with more than three hours of fun.
"Everyone in Greendale is helping to arrange a surprise party for a special someone’s birthday… Postman Pat! The preparations are underway with kids, adults and even Ted’s machines helping out. But all the while Pat thinks friends and family have forgotten his special day. Will everything go to plan and be ready in time for the big surprise?"
There's also a free limited edition party CD with 15 tracks to sing along to; we've been listening to it while doing craft activities and The Boy has started dancing to it.
I really would recommend buying this DVD as it is excellent value and is traditional Postman Pat at his very best!

We were provided with this DVD for the purpose of this review. Our honest opinions of him are based on thirty years watching (although clearly not continuosly) and our enjoyment.
