Harry And His Bucket Full Of Dinosaurs - Schools Out - review
Review by Claire Paye with Amelia and Charlie
I watched the DVD with Amelia (6) and Charlie (3). It has proved a big hit already, with Charlie now running round saying 'Hurray for Pizza', which is a direct quote from the second episode (he'll be onto Shakespeare soon).
Each of the six episodes features Harry and his friends having a real-life-related adventure in Dino World. The first episode, 'School's Out' is an excellent introduction to school concepts such as learning, break time, lunch boxes and so on. School certainly looks like a lot of fun, which it will be, in Reception.
Each episode lasts about ten minutes, with a total running time of 66 mins. The graphics are simple and clear and the accents are recognisably English. Plenty of ideas for imaginative play are thrown up - fancy setting up a pizza parlour, anyone?
The ideal age is probably Pre Schoolers, but the episodes are entertaining enough for even a worldly-wise Year Two-er, such as Amelia. The DVD is a shoo-in for all dinosaur-loving little boys and, yes, even parents could cope with viewing it on repeat, at least a few times.
Harry and His Bucket Full of Dinosaurs is available to buy now on DVD.
