Kids' DVD review : Mike the Knight - A Very Knightly Christmas

The Madhouse Mini-testers were delighted when we received a copy of Mike the Knight - A Very Knightly Christmas to review. It contains six fun and festive episodes featuring Mike the Knight and the other residents of Glendragon. The episode listing is as follows :

1. The Sneezing Reindeer
2. Santa's Little Helper
3. The Snow Dragon
4. The Great Protector
5. Viking Snow Day
6. The Busiest Day

The official blurb says : "It’s Christmas Eve in Glendragon and one of Santa’s reindeer is sick. Mike makes it his mission to save Christmas and does everything he can to nurse the reindeer back to health, making sure he is included on Santa’s ‘nice’ list. Meanwhile, Mr Cuddles is sent on a wild toboggan ride, Squirt gets stuck in a giant snowball and Mike learns that Vikings like to have fun in the snow too."

It has some pretty cool DVD extras too, including a fun modern day version of the chivalrous code and a sing-along theme tune (which always has us in fits of giggles !). 

But that's not all ! Mike the Knight: A Very Knightly Christmas also comes with a special bonus DVD, Mike’s Hidden Treasure, containing six additional episodes : The Smiley Treasure, The Tricky Trail, The Buried Treasure, The Wizard's Treasure, The Most Medals and The Jewels of Glendragon.

Both Pierre and Juliette have watched it through several times and I already thought that, with 138 minutes of viewing time, it was good value. But when I went check the price on amazon, I was flabbergasted to see that it is currently only £3. If you have a little Mike the Knight fan, grab it now as a bonus stocking filler - that's a crazy price !

star rating : 5/5

RRP : £12.99 (but currently only £3 on amazon)
