DVD Review: "Peter Rabbit - Tales of the Start of Spring"

Lara and Sophia absolutely adore the Beatrix Potter stories and ask for them most evenings at bedtime, so when the animated Peter Rabbit series appeared on CBeebies they were absolutely delighted.  These fun stories based on the characters of Peter, Mr Tod, Benjamin Bunny and Squirrel Nutkin really capture their imagination and they sit enthralled by the whole episode, then play out the stories or variants thereon afterwards.

Now Abbey Home Media have released the delightful stories from the new animated series on DVD.  Follow Peter Rabbit and his friends Lily Bobtail and Benjamin Bunny as they encounter danger, overcome obstacles and cleverly evade Mr McGregor, Mr Tod and Tommy Brock, bringing Beatrix Potter's classic characters and settings to a new generation.  The Peter Rabbit:The Tales Of The Start Of Spring DVD is released on Monday, March 30th and would make a perfect Easter gift.


The stories are full of fun and adventure, as well as the essential pursuit of radishes (now a favourite food for our girls!), and lots of positive role models and attributes.  A really lovely series for young children.  The 8 enchanting episodes on the DVD are:

  • The Tale of the Start of Spring, a 22 minute special episode
  • The Tale of the Radish Robbers
  • The Tale of the Secret Treehouse
  • The Tale of the Dash in the Dark
  • The Tale of the Broken Bed
  • The Tale of Benjamin’s New Map
  • The Tale of the Terrible Trap
  • The Tale of the Peekboo Rabbits

Over 100 minutes of fun and adventure!  The DVD also features a free Hop Outside insert with outdoor activities for children to take part in.

Find out more about the DVD on the Facebook page.
