Last week I had my first ever genuine surprise parcel through the post, and it was such a lovely thing to receive.
This gorgeous box of Easte treats was from the very generous and lovely Nick Jr and contained a plethora of high quality chocolate and a very special Easter Egg in the form of an information pack about forthcoming special celebratory Nick Jr shows.
Not only was it a lovely parcel to receive but also it's come at a really good time. I'm at that stage with The Boy now where his taste in television programmes is changing. Gone is BabyTV and in has come Nick Jr alongside the stalwart of CBeebies. He has his preferred shows on the channel, mainly Peppa Pig, but also Ben & Holly's Little Kingdom and, of course, Team UmiZoomi: he's obsessed with it! However, the range of fun programmes on there is more than I had previously realised.
- Over the Easter weekend, Team UmiZoomi will be showing The Umi City Egg Hunt. In the year since it launched it has over 4.4. million viewers and with it's mix of 2D and 3D animation, the math-powered superheroes are brilliant at helping live-action pre-schoolers solve everyday problems. In The Umi City Egg Hunt, the superheroes help their friend April to find the rainbow egg after it tumbles down a rabiit hole. We watched this together, and The Boy was captivated from start to finish emiting squeals of laughter and shrieks of 'there it is, there it is!'This special airs at 10.30am on Thursday 5th April and Sunday 8th April on Nick Jr.
- The first lady of Nick Jr gets her own Easter special in the form of Dora's Easter Adventure. Dora and Boots await the Easter Bunny to bring his basket filled with eggs and treats for their big egg hunt, but just as he arrives the sneaky Swiper swoops in and does what he normally does! He throws it far away into the Rainbow Garden and it's their job to save the Easter treats from a watery end. Dora's Easter Adventure will be shown at 10am on Thursday 5th April and Sunday 8th April on Nick Jr.
Hope your little ones enjoy the Easter specials as much as mine did!
I was sent the above package as a surprise present from Nickleodeon. They haven't asked me to blog about it, but I've chosen to because I'm on the look out for Easter-themed programmes and thought you lot might be too!
