Grandpa in my Pocket Double DVD Review

Both my boys had a poorly weekend with a sick bug and lots of bouts of coughing, so it was perfect timing for them to review this DVD to take their minds off the germs.  The double set includes over 2 hours of lots of episodes for your children to enjoy.  Mine were thrilled to add this to their DVD collection, “that’s so silly” and lots of laughter let me know they were having plenty of fun, whilst tucked up and ailing.

It is good to have an extensive DVD collection, as it’s a great distraction for unwell children.  You cannot always guarantee there will be something suitable for them on television that they enjoy.  So for a bargain RRP of £7.99 and an award winner (Best Children’s programme award at the Welsh Baftas) to boot you cannot really go wrong with purchasing Grandpa in my Pocket.  Plus I find it quite tolerable myself, which helps if they want you to watch it with them!

If you’re not familiar with the programme then it involves the adventures of Jason Mason and his shrinking grandpa. I quite fancy a magical cap for myself... the opportunities would be limitless!


The covers for the double sets also make great “flyers” according to my eldest, who then whizzes about wearing them.  So all these double DVD sets I have been reviewing are multifunctional!


Grandpa in my Pocket is available on Amazon for a very agreeable £5.71.  You could give it for presents and look extra generous; a gift of a double DVD gives the impression you have spent much more!

I have five copies to give away of these double DVD’s, so you can see how marvellous they are.

  40. This is the first programme that my 3 year old son ever sat down to watch. When he was about 18 months old, he had a little chair that he never used to pay much attention to (it played a little song thing also) but then he saw grandpa in my pocket once and it amazed us as the next day when it started he went and got his little chair and sat in front of the tele he was glued!!!! I've never known anything like it!!!! He is 4 this month but he still loves grandpa and his nearly 3 year old sister is as big a fan!
