Kids' DVD review : Milkshake! Stars

The kids have gone back to school, marking the end of summer and the beginning of autumn. The conkers have already started falling out of the trees in fact and there's a distinct chill in the air when I go to get my bus in the morning, so it won't be long before it's too cold to go to the park or get the bikes out after school. When the nights draw in, what better way to spend some quality time with the kids than snuggling up on the settee with a hot chocolate, watching a DVD together?

With perfect timing, 5 Milkshake! have just released a brand new DVD, called Milkshake! Stars,which features a whopping 2 hours of children's favourites, including Thomas & Friends, Peppa Pig, Ben & Holly and Fireman Sam, as well as some new programmes, including Pip Ahoy!, Toby’s Travelling Circus and Jelly Jamm.

Here's the complete episode guide :
