The children seem to be really enjoying their time at home for the Easter Holidays. So far we have managed to keep the kids busy, entertained and most importantly happy at home. The holidays are the time to kick back, to relax and to enjoy our time together as a family and whilst I like to keep the children active there comes a time when I hold my hands up, submit and allow us all a little screen time.
What better way to relax after a busy day running around castles, scaling soft play, baking biscuits, or burning off the beans at bouncy castle madness sessions than by curling up on the sofa and catching up on some television?
The children each have their favourite shows which we tend to flit between equally to avoid any conflict. Mostly however our television tends to be tuned into the CBeebies channel as I feel it offers our children a more educational, inspirational and wholesome range of viewing without the much despised advertisements that our children are overly subjected to.
CBeebies have recently launched ‘Kazoops’, a new series which we were selected as one of the lucky few to view an advanced screening of.
Monty Kazoops, the little boy with a big imagination and his loyal companion, his pet pig Jimmy Jones is back in the new animated adventures ‘Kazoops’.
Throughout each episode Monty and Jimmy use their imaginations to look at the World around them from a different perspective in order to solve problems and find solutions. After all who says the World works as grown ups think it should? Things can always be different should you use your imagination…
Our Thoughts Upon Kazoops
Following sitting and watching the first episode of Kazoops ‘Day Dreamer Monty’ I asked the children as to what their thoughts were upon this animated series.
J is currently potty about Pirates, as this show didn’t feature any sword fights, trips to sea or swash buckling of any kind he simply said that the show was “enjoyable”. However, he was rather impressed by the naming of the pig ‘Jimmy Jones’ and this alone was enough to secure further viewing.
J later explained after watching further episodes of Kazoops that he found the animation particularly interesting as it featured a range of textures some of which appeared realistic.
E was rather taken by Monty and of course his cute, pet pig. She liked that the stories seemed believable and easy to understand. Her favourite character was apparently ‘Gran’ as she comes across much like myself, rather zany!
Kazoops features a range of characters all of which are brought to life through colourful animation and inspiring, imaginative storylines encouraging adventure, discovery and play.
Both my children and I really enjoyed watching the first few episodes of Kazoops and will be sure to continue watching this show in future.
