I've written about Poppy Cat before and our love for her adventures. There's something about the programme that captivates
our, The Boy's, (alright then!) our imaginations.
It's one of the few children's programmes that we will both happily watch cuddled up on the sofa without any distractions. The perfect combination of cheekiness from the characters (especially Egbert), adventures galore and imaginative stories makes for pure childhood television. Combine it with the catchy theme music and the bright animation, it's a surefire winner in this house.
Now, for the first time, there is a Poppy Cat DVD with all the best episodes on, providing more than two hours of feline adventures.
On Poppy Cat: Birthday Treasures and Other Adventures there are eleven episodes:
- Birthday Treasures
- Bad Robot
- Magic Show
- Sunken Ship
- Bumble Fumble
- Cheese Mountain (a personal favourite)
- Marshmallow Mines
- Missing Keys
- Chilly Hills
- Space Race
- Buried Treasure
Poppy Cat is an incredibly popular children's television series, and why wouldn't it be when the books by Lara Jones have sold over 2.5 million and the voice talents are incredible, including Joanna Page (Gavin and Stacey). It's one of those programmes that you feel comfortable not needing to monitor because everything is so innocent and the characters kind. There is only one episode (out of 26!) that The Boy has asked to be turned over, and that is Bad Robot because he doesn't like naughtiness. Poppy Cat has helped me out of a Peppa Pig rut on many a car journey, and she also helped me to distract The Boy while I spent copious amounts of time building his PlayMobil house.
Want to see why? Have a look at this trailer with the catchy music.
Poppy Cat: Birthday Treasures and Other Adventures is available to buy from 3rd September 2012 priced at £12.99.
I was sent a review disc for the purpose of this post, my opinion is honest and unbiased.
