We were sent the hugely entertaining Ape Escape. My boys loved everything about it, the music had them dancing and the episodes had them laughing non-stop. The episodes are very short so when the first ended they had really sad faces, but when I explained there were 18 more on the DVD they soon cheered up!
I found it very funny for me too. Something I am more than happy to join in watching with them. The monkeys get up to all sorts, having driving lessons, being terrible plumbers and dreadful ice cream servers, but they do seem to try their best. Their botched attempts at everything is why I think its so amusing. Even the villain Specter has no joy in taking over the world, as he seems far too busy dealing with his monkey minions.
It is based on the video games but we have never played these, so had missed out on having these charming cheeky apes in our lives! I am glad that’s been rectified now. But if your children are familiar with the video games too, then this will be an even bigger hit I am sure!
The DVD was released on the 18th of February and is available to buy now from Amazon for just £5.99.
