Spend Half-Term with Ben & Holly's Little Kingdom

All three girls adore Ben & Holly's Little Kingdom, so we were very excited recently when their latest book and DVD arrived.  We are all looking forward to lots of exciting Ben & Holly events over half-term week, including a Milkshake! TV takeover; meet and greets across the country; discounts on toys; and more!

New DVD Ben And Holly's Little Kingdom: Planet Bong [DVD] is ideal for any rainy half-term days, or just a little downtime before tea.  It contains 10 episodes including the eponymous Planet Bong, a two part story about a little alien named Zyros who asks 'Smartypants', a.k.a. The Wise Old Elf, to help restore their planet to its green and lush past.  Involving a jelly flood, a will they/won't they moment in a broke down and stranded spaceship, and a nice environmental message, this is a classic Ben & Holly episode, and Lara's favourite.

The hilarious Chickens Ride West is my favourite, whilst Sophia likes The Mermaid, which features human girl Lucy and her father; and Gaston is Lost about a very greedy ladybird!  Tatiana enjoys all the bright colours and goes up to the screen to talk to the cute characters.

The full episode listing is:
  • Planet Bong - Part 1
  • Planet Bong - Part 2
  • Chickens Ride West
  • Daisy and Poppy go to the Museum
  • Father's Day
  • Fox Cubs
  • Gaston is Lost
  • Nanny Plum and the Wise Old Elf Swap Jobs
  • The Mermaid
  • The Very Important Person

The lovely Ben & Holly's Little Kingdom: Christmas at the North Pole book features an elf and fairy feast, meeting Father Christmas (and thank you B&H for sticking with FC not the American Santa!), and is just lovely.  We have been reading it a few times every day since it arrived, and the girls love it.  A great addition to those Christmas stockings!
