It’s official. I am old. This week, Postman Pat will turn 30.
It only feels like yesterday that I was watching it (even our pet cat when I was little was called Jess I was such a huge fan!) and now my own children are watching it.
As the longest running animated tv series on the BBC, Postman Pat has been entertaining small folk for three whole decades and will be celebrating his birthday this Autumn. On 16th September the BBC will be dedicating a whole morning to Postman Pat with back to back episodes on CBeebies and he’ll even be hosting the birthday slot. There is also a brand new DVD being released on 12th September that we were very kindly sent to review.
The DVD is fabulous and includes eight special episodes with more than three hours of fun plus a free limited edition party CD with 15 tracks to sing along to and get you in the party mood! Our favourite episode was definitely Postman Pat’s Great Big Party. Everyone in Greendale is helping to arrange a surprise party for Pat but all the while he thinks that his friends and family have forgotten his special day. Of course, I won’t spoil the surprise and tell you if everything goes to plan – you’ll have to see for yourself 😉
This fabulous DVD is available from 12th September from all good retailers and you can visit the interactive Postman Pat SDS website for further information, games, clips and downloadable activity sheets at www.postmanpat.com
