The boys were very happy to set eyes on the two DVD’s we
were sent by Abbey Media. We have had a
chance to watch a little bit more on the TV with the nights drawing in, so
finally had the opportunity to watch them.
With all the after school clubs it always seems a frantic dash
everywhere, its time to start relaxing over the Christmas break, especially now
they are both full of cold, sigh!
DVD’s would make lovely little stocking fillers.
Jelly Jamm: Radio Goomo
very colourful and filled with the adventures of five nutty friends. My boys laughed lots at their silly
antics. Both were totally absorbed by
it, the friends are like typical kids, squabbling, being loud and over
excited. Trying to work together (not
always successfully) to solve problems (like getting the super loud radio off
their friend before their ears explode!).
It shows children how better to deal with problems, if unhappy just
telling their friend turned out easier than elaborate plans to try and remedy
another episode one of the friends has jelly measles but wants to carry on and
not admit he is poorly. In the end he
admits very reluctantly that he needs rest and medicine. His friend stays to look after him and
another friend stops them missing out on the beautiful aurora by making a
series of mirrors transport the effect into their room. Shows the value of friendship and how kind
everyone can be to each other.

Almost Naked Animals: It’s My Party
quite a funny looking bunch of animals, going around in an assortment of
underpants and having shaved off their fur.
Probably best suited for children five plus as it is quite bizarre but
that made it more entertaining for me.
Anything to have a break from yet more Cbeebies, something to get me to
giggle along with the boys!
makes an interesting manager for the tropical resort with his love of stunts
and very tight fitting underpants!
There is an octopus character who is prone to moments of extreme panic,
a karate practising chef pig and a bunny who arranges the activities and is
very kind one minute and then extremely hostile the next! A bunch of loveable oddballs but not sure if
I would ever build up the courage book a room in their resort!
