Milkshake Gold! Dvd Review & GIVEAWAY!!

With the weather turning grey and miserable, my thoughts turn to entertaining the boys on days when it is too cold and wet to venture outside. We’ve all had a horrible cold, so you can imagine the delight and excitement on Boo’s face when a parcel turned up containing the New Milkshake Gold Dvd!

Milkshake is a firm favourite in our house, we love the colourful combinations of such family favourites as Roary, Thomas and The Mr Men! The Dvd promises over 2hours of the best pre-school characters and as boredom busters go, this was superb! Boo particularly enjoyed the familiar faces of the Milkshake Presenters introducing the cartoons. I loved seeing ‘Harry and his Bucket full of Dinosaurs’ and explain about Dinosaurs to Boo, although I realise my knowledge about them is distinctly lacking! There are also several ‘extras’ on the DVD, of which Boo’s favourite was the ‘Roary Rev Up’ – he loves cars so this was inevitable!

We’re planning a trip abroad towards the end of the year, and the Milkshake Gold Dvd will definitely be coming with us as a familiar treat to watch while we’re away! There is so much variety that it will keep everyone entertained (I almost feel I should insert the photo of Mr G watching the Dvd avidly while off work poorly but I had best not!)

The DVD features: Little Princess, Roary The Racing Car, Bert & Ernie, Fifi and the Flowertots, Mio Mao, Mr Men, Igam Ogam, Castle Farm, Harry and His Bucket Full of Dinosaurs, Hana’s Helpline, Bananas in Pyjamas, The Adventures of Bottletop Bill, Olivia, Thomas & Friends.

    Great review!

    My daughter’s only fairly recently discovered Milkshake, but watches it most mornings now.

    Her favourite’s are Thomas the Tank (obviously!) and Peppa Pig.

    Forgot to say why! He has a tickle me Elmo so his face lights up when he sees him on the telly and we recently went to Peppa Pig world and they both loved it! My daughter loves the piggy noises! I force them to watch Thomas as i love it so much but im sure they agree!

    My daughter is nearly 3 and she loves a whole bunch of milkshake characters, but I’m afraid to say that she does seem to have a bit of a crush on Norman from Fireman Sam at the moment…

    Great review and giveaway thanks x

  • kasza

    Thomas the Tank every time. I think my love and enthusiasm has rubbed off, we have books from yonks ago that are dogeared but well loved. Such a treat when we watch TTT on Tv

  • rachdreaming

    My two year old son loves Peppa Pig. He will not watch anything else! It is so cute, because he sounds so much like George. He says Dinosaur in exactly the same way “dine-saw.”

    The other day he was pretending to be a worm singin ‘I’m a wrigglry worm’ because he’d seen it on Peppa Pig, it was the cutest thing!

    I follow on GFC and am at @rachdreaming

    Thankyou for the lovely giveaway! =) x
