Storyline

A toddler/infant adventure garden which tip-toes between the twilight state of a child being awake and moving through to a state of sleep. It is somewhat psychedelic, yet to a child it is fun, imaginative, colourful and, as the programme comes to a close, relaxing and sweet. Written by Dean Mark Anthony

A wonderful children's program
22 March 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Our 2 year old niece recently started watching this program on BBC 2 and is loving every minute of it. There are not many children's programs that allow a child to sit and watch in complete silence for half an hour and be completely engrossed in it.

Derek Jacobi is a wonderful narrator and has a perfect gentle voice for a program like this.

The characters and the models are very well done and a lot of time and creativity has been put into thinking about creating unique characters and locations unlike any other children's program. The seamless transition of CG and real world sets are very well done and makes it a joy for even adults to watch and enjoy.

I can recommend this children's program for any child 1 to 3 years old and it is gentle and calm in every way a children's program should be.
