One of the children’s favourite TV shows is, undoubtedly, the popular Cbeebies series, Kazoops. I’m sure those of you with young children will have seen it and will recognise the theme tune a mile off, it’s extremely catchy!
The show revolves around Monty Kazoops, the little boy with a vivid imagination and a loyal pet pig, and is back with brand new animated adventures in Kazoops, shown daily on CBeebies from today!
In each episode Monty confronts a preconception about the grown-up world and sets out to challenge it, embarking on a wild imaginary adventure with Jimmy that offers them a fresh perspective. As a parent I love the message that this portrays to my children, and anything that encourages them to use their imaginations gets a big thumbs up from me!
In Monday’s episode, Daydreamer Monty, Monty is faced with the problem of how to get a new piano upstairs and he has some wonderfully imaginative ideas, but when his family tell him that his ideas are fun but not actually useful, Monty wonders if daydreaming can help solve problems?
The children and I watched the programme together today and they loved it! They each had their own ideas about how Monty could get the piano up the stairs, all as equally wonderful and imaginative as Monty’s.
The music in this episode is fantastic, and considering some of the Cbeebies songs that I have stuck in my head on a daily basis, this is probably my favourite!
I love that at the end of the episodes it was proven that daydreaming can solve problems, and with the piano in place and the episode over, my children were simply asking to watch more!! From now on I think that when it’s time for Kazoops each day, I will be sitting down, enjoying a well deserved rest, and watching it with them!
