Like a lot of parents, we do let our kids watch some TV. CBeebies is a staple in our house - even back when Emily was younger we always let her watch the shows on there. Mr Tumble wasn't around when she was younger, but I'm sure if he had have been then she would have been watching that too! What I love about Something Special is that although it is fun and amusing to watch - it is also educational. Colours and numbers, as well as emotions and feelings are explored through the show and this gets us talking - which can only be a good thing.
I was really excited to see that Justin & Friends: Mr Tumble's Circus is doing the rounds. This is a live show based on the TV show including all of our children's regular favourites - Mr Tumble himself, and of course Aunt Polly and Grandad Tumble. Also involved are some of the fun characters from Gigglebiz including Keith Fitt, Dina Lady, Gale Force and Arthur Sleep. The show also promises lots of fun circus action like unicyclists, tumblers and jugglers - the whole show looks really exciting.
Family ticket prices (2 adults and 2 children) start from just £54 so that's a good price for a family day out. We are hoping to get to one of these shows with our children (time permitting!) If we go, we will arrange a full day out - picnic in the park, then the show and then maybe a coffee and a cake afterwards!
If you are thinking of going to one of these shows over Easter with the kids then do check out CBeebies Live Website for dates and ticket availabilty.
The show looks like it is set to be a massive success - enjoy!
