With the wet weather showing no sign of leaving this summer, I've been on the look out for extra home entertainment to keep us busy! Our friends at Abbey Home Media kindly sent us a copy of Harry and His Bucket Full of Dinosaurs new DVD 'Schools Out!' to review:
|School's Out! Released 6th August 2012.|
With Boo about to start school in September, I'm quite keen to get him used to the idea of what it's all about to make sure he's well prepared! The first episode on the DVD is all about school, after Harry comes home with exciting stories of his day at school the dinosaurs want to know what school is like! Harry decides to show the Dinosaurs what school is all about, by creating 'Dino School!' they then learn about school, from where you might sit, to what happens at break time! Boo and E sat quietly watching the DVD (well, with the exception of Boo singing along with the theme tune..) and Boo asked lots of questions at the end about whether he'd learn about volcanoes on his first day..in fact he's a bit over excited about school now!
All the episodes have an educational content to them, from learning about how pizza is made to helping and moving house. The genie episode, which is all about being careful what you wish for was particularly useful for us as Boo has just started to use the phrase 'I wish I had..' Seeing the disasters that Harry and his dinosaurs have to overcome is just what Boo needed to begin to understand that getting exactly what you ask for isn't always a good thing!
The DVD is great fun, and Boo was delighted with it! There are 6 episodes in total and all are packed with adventure and fun, ideal for entertainment on a wet day and great for inspiring imaginative play!
