Amazing at any age!
19 December 2010 | by erika_gisrSee all my reviews

Even though these series are intended for children with learning and communication difficulties, my 4-year old son also loves the character of Mr. Tumble. And so do I. We started watching the series on the CBeebies channel, but now we have them on DVD as well. Mr. Tumble is an amazing friendly character, and there is much to learn from him. I surely can recommend the series for other parents. I also believe that children who watch this program are more likely to develop the noble qualities of patience and tolerance towards each other. Also through watching a child is getting the basics of the sign language, and I think this is a very good skill for the future. Just in case.
