If you’ve got a toddler or under 5-year-old at home, odds on that they are a Cbeebies fan. Well I know that mine is anyway.
As well as being a Cbeebies fan, he’s also a massive fan of Chris and Pui and ‘Show Me, Show Me’, as I’m sure we all are.
Well recently as he’s been enjoying his daily dose of ‘Show Me, Show Me’, he’s also been fascinated with the new cartoon character Uki who features in the small cartoons they are running during the show.
Now you may be familiar with Uki from the show, but I’m sure you may be surprised (and thrilled) like me to discover that Uki is a bit of a star in his own right, with his own website www.ukiland.com, DVD, games and even Plush toy!
We received a copy of the DVD to take a look at, and have had a lovely couple of mornings watching it. I tend to watch it with my 3yr old once we get back from taking his big brother to school. It’s our special program which we watch and enjoy together.
For the uninitiated Uki is a little yellow creature who lives in a sunflower, and spends his days exploring the nature around him. He has lots of animal friends like Hedgehog, Rabbit and Duck, plus some other friends Sun, Moon and Cloud who act as Uki’s guardian and are always around keeping an eye on him.
On big difference between Uki and other cartoons is that there is Uki does not talk, everyone communicates with sounds and gesturing to the camera. The cartoons are really very sweet, and as there is no speech just soothing music, it’s a very relaxing watch.
You also get to see a bit more of the fun with each episode on the DVD. I think the Show Me, Show Me one’s are slightly shortened, missing out the repetitious parts of the show like the jigsaw at the beginning of each episode, and looking through the album at the end of most episodes.
Jacob absolutely loves this DVD, and even though I knew he liked Uki I’ve been surprised by how much he laughs out loud at him. Some of the episodes on the DVD had him rolling around on the floor laughing. I’m not use why but something about Uki really connects and tickles him.
With the DVD being such a big success in our house, I’m overjoyed to be able to offer you all a chance to win a copy for yourself. I have 2 prize packages to give away to the 2 lucky winners containing an Uki Plush and Uki DVD.
