My 3 year twins regularly watch Boj on CBeebies and absolutely love it, so this DVD has been a great hit with them and there is also the added benefit of not having to wait for it to be on TV to watch it!
Boj is a Bilby from the Australian outback and lives in Giggly Park with Mimi and his Pops (voiced by Jason Donavan). Mimi and Pops are very musical parents and don’t need any excuse for a song, making sure there always time for a good old sing along in the episodes.
On his many adventures Boj loves to burrow helping his friends – Denzil, Rupa, Mia, Gavin and of course Mr Cloppity. The episodes are great fun to watch to see what ‘Boj-a-boom idea’ he is going to come up to help rescue of each of his friends from their dilemmas. Whether it’s helping Mr Cloppity dig up a huge carrot, helping to find and rescue Denzil’s teddy from the Twitchletts or making all of his friends feel better when they have the ‘Sneezy Snufferoos’, there’s a ‘Boj-a-boom idea for everything and lots of fun to be had along the way!
The DVD has a total running time of 114 minutes and consists of 10 fabulous episodes with each one lasting approximately 10 minutes.
The DVD also contains some great bonus features such as three karaoke music videos which allow the whole family to sing along to – the ‘Theme Tune, ‘Altogether Now’ and ‘Home To Me’ plus there are printable colouring in sheets of Boj, Denzil, Rupa, Mia and Gavin which are a great feature and to finish off a great DVD there is also the option to watch it in English or French!
Highly recommend and a definite buy for any Boj fan!
