Antarctic Charley DVD Review

Yesterday after we got in from a nice long walk in the cold I had a surprise waiting for Ben which made him very happy indeed, it was the new Little Charley Bear DVD called Antarctic Charley. The DVD features six fantastic adventures which sees Charley heading to the Antarctic to seek out the cold weather.

The episodes include Snow Place for Frozo, Mountain Rescue Midge, Charley Go Fish, Downhill Rivet, Farmer Bear and Charley's Big Match. Ben's favourite is Rescue Midge, probably because one of his favourite things to do is climb. It was funny watching how engrossed he got in this episode as Charley was climbing the mountain to rescue Midge, he kept saying "Oh no, poor Midge, rescue Midge!" like he was willing Charley to make it to the top. There was lots of clapping when Charley finally reached Midge and even more when they slid back down the mountain. I expect when we next go to the park Ben will be pretending the slide is a mountain :).

Little Charley Bear, who is a regular on cBeebies, definitely remains one of Ben's (and my) favourite children's programmes. I love how in tune it is with young kids and how the way in which they use their imaginations to play. You have got to love Little Charley Bear's character with his cute little ways and the voice of James Corden who does such a great job in bringing him to life and giving him his personality.

Antarctic Charley is available to pre-order from Amazon and will be available to purchase in stores and online from various retailers from 30 January 2012 with a RRP of £12.99.

*Disclaminer: This is a sponsored post. I received a copy of Antarctic Charley DVD in exchange for a review but this has in no way biased my opinion - Ben really enjoyed the DVD.
