Fireman Sam – Live on Stage – Pontypandy Rocks

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011

We had already bought our children a copy of the Fireman Sam Live on Stage DVD and the kids really enjoyed it. So when we saw that Fireman Sam was coming to the Alexandra Theatre in Birmingham we jumped at the chance to buy tickets. It’s perhaps a good job we did as the tickets […]

The End Of The Line – shopping for sustainable fish

Thursday, December 9th, 2010

After watching the film documentary – The End of the Line I’ve now read the book as well. The End of the Line examines the damage that commercialised fishing has done and is still doing to the worlds oceans putting profits ahead of the sustainability of the fish. This has endangered many species of fish, […]

The End of the Line – The problem of overfishing

Monday, November 1st, 2010

The End of the Line is a documentary like no other. It is a documentary that could help change the world for the better, I sincerely hope so as the future does not sound very promising if something is not done. I first heard about this from a tweet by Stephen Fry when it was […]

Review: CBeebies Music CD and DVD

Sunday, February 18th, 2007

This is a review of the My CBeebies Album, CD and DVD. This is the one with the yellow case. There is a similar music CD with 2 CDs instead of the second disc being a DVD. The CD only version is a bit older, so doesn’t include some of the newer songs, but shares […]

TV and DVDs for Babies and Toddlers – CBeebies from the BBC

Thursday, January 18th, 2007

Assuming that it is not overused I believe the Television can help babies and children to develop, and give parents a bit of a break. The second being just as important as it can help reduce stress creating a better environment for everyone. Here’s a brief run down of some of the TV channels and […]

Teletubbies TV, DVD and Game Reviews

Sunday, December 31st, 2006

There was some controversy when Teletubbies was first broadcast on the BBC. One of the concerns was from the baby sounds that the teletubbies make, saying Eh-Oh, instead of hello etc. Being the parent of a 1 year old baby I can now see that the teletubbies really do benefit young children. Our daughter is […]
