I've just posted our review of the Hello Kitty Aquabeads set that we received during the holidays, but she wasn't the only cute feline to put in an appearance in the Madhouse mailbox - we also received this lovely surprise package of Poppy Cat goodies.
As the Madhouse kids shared out the loot, I turned to the information sheet to see what it was all about and discovered that Poppy Cat will be returning to our screens on 8th September for a second series of the colourful, fun and adventure-filled pre-schoolers' show. Every weekday from 8th September at 9am on Nick Jr, young viewers will be able to join in with Zuzu, Mo, Alma, Egbert, Owl and of course Poppy Cat, to embark on some more imaginative and exciting escapades together.
Get ready to meet some new friends too, as this series introduces over fifty new characters, including Ozzy the octopus, Charles the blue whale and Ernie the platypus. It will see Poppy Cat and her friends travelling in aeroplanes, pirate ships, hot air balloons and rockets, while exploring some amazing new places such as Chocolate Falls, Gloppy Ponds and Woolly Woods.
As an adult, I always like to try to recognise the famous voices behind the cartoon characters so I love the fact that Joanna Page of Gavin & Stacey fame lends her voice to the cheerful orange cat. Watch the video above for a behind-the-scenes look at making the show, as well as some clips to discover Poppy and her friends.
