Spot Goes on Holiday!
I confess, I was a child of the eighties and remember fondly reading all about the cuddly Spot the dog! I loved his adventures and would constantly pester for books or later to be allowed to watch the cartoon on 'childrens telly' (this was in the time of the "broom cupboard" for those of you old enough to remember!).
When Abbey Home Media asked if we'd like to review a copy of the new DVD 'Spot Goes on Holiday' I was excited as I know the boys like animals and I wondered if they'd enjoy it as much as I used to! The episodes are short and colourful, but unfortunately Boo immediately decided that he was 'too old' (aged 4..) to watch the cartoon and instead discovered the stickers and colouring sheets and got to work with those! E on the other hand was delighted and clapped at the sight of Spot, he loves dogs at the best of times and the colourful fun content and the stories which are easy to follow. As a parent I like the way the episodes are quite calming to watch, and teach mostly about being kind and sharing, as well as more exciting things like what happens on a trip to the beach or circus!
It is a lovely pack and ideal for the summer holidays, E loved it I would recommend it to keep any pre-school child busy over the summer holidays!
