‘We’re going on a bear hunt’ Twitter party coming soon

To celebrate the launch of the DVD version of the Michael Rosen classic story, lots of bloggers will be holding ‘We’re going on a bear hunt’ parties this Thursday, and you can join in too.

Joe is very excited about the Bear Hunt Party

We’re going on a bear hunt film review

The classic story is now a beautiful family film that was one of the big hits on television this Christmas, bringing all the magic and wonder of Michael Rosen’s story to life. The story itself is a very simple one, a family, and their dog, go on a bear hunt – and they’re not scared. They face lots of rough terrains along the way, from rivers and mud, forests and a snowstorm. They have to go through all of this in order to find the bear, but they face it all as an adventure. However, when they reach the dark cave, and finally meet a bear, it seems they are scared after all. We are left with a bear all alone, with children everywhere wondering if maybe the bear was in need of a friend too.

Bear Hunt Goodies

It is a really wonderful film, with lots of repetition that young children love to join in with, and beautifully drawn illustrations that will delight those who love the book too. The voices are instantly recognisable, with Olivia Coleman and Pam Ferris amongst those bringing the characters to life, whilst the music is fabulous, a new song by George Ezra, one of the brightest new stars to emerge in 2016.

You can buy your copy of the film here, or can download the film here.

Love Kazoops – now get the music.

[affilinet_performance_ad size=468×60]

If your child is a fan of the CBeebies series Kazoops, the chances are that they absolutely love the music. So I have a little good news for you and your little ones, because the music is now available to buy or download. Children’s TV producer, Cheeky Little Media released ‘Just Imagine – Volume 1’ last Friday This first album is made up of a total of 20 songs from the Kazoops series, and will also be available as individual downloads on many digital service providers including iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Pandora and Youtube.

Kazoops is very popular with the under 7s, and the wonderful songs are a big reason for the popularity. For those who are not familiar with the series, Kazoops is all about Monty, a six-year-old boy who challenges life’s questions both big and small with the help of his imagination and with his best friend, Jimmy Jones, who just happens to be his pet pig. In each episode, the duo enters make-believe worlds to challenge everyday preconceptions such as ‘do things have to be the same all the time?’ The songs that accompany each adventure are so clever and funny that they appeal to adult listeners as well as their captivated child audience.


Patrick Egerton, Executive Producer, Cheeky Little Media, commented: “Music pervades Kazoops at all levels, and not just because each episode contains a unique song…The seed of the series concept came from our song writer and performer Scott Langley. He had written these amazing songs about a boy and a pig who went on imaginary journeys. When we heard how ‘grown-up’ the music was, and how clever and funny Scott’s lyrics were, we knew we had the start of something cool for a pre-school audience. The songs are key to the show, and give us these visually rich adventures at the centre of each episode that are crucial to the story but can also stand alone as mini-music videos in their own right.”

You can find all the songs available on download at Amazon.
