This week we received a very Special Delivery. You may remember that last week, I reviewed a brand new DVD, Postman Pat The Movie (click through to read my review). It was released on 29th September and is now on the shelves so if you have a Pat-fan in your midst, it could be the perfect stocking filler -sorry to remind you but there are only 81 days to go to Christmas !
To mark the release, we were sent some fabulous Postman Pat toys that really tie in with the film. We got a Showbiz Pat which is great fun. He sings three different songs - the new Special Delivery theme tune, Hey Mr Postman and a classic Postman Pat tune - and even better, he dances along. His sparkly, shimmery outfit and the Blues Brothers shades just top it off - I love it at least as much as the kids ! (And I was impressed to see that it came with batteries already inserted.)
We also got an SDS 'Special Delivery Service) Centre which comes with a parcel trolley and a Ben Taylor figure which will be perfect for reenacting scenes from the film. I think we may have to sit down and make a load of Postman Pat toilet roll tube puppets to be the evil robot Pats during the holidays. This Postman Pat finger puppet print out from the CBeebies website should make it a fun and simple project to keep the kids busy.
Disclosure : We received the toys to tie in with the release of the DVD, which we reviewed last week.
