CBeebies character Boj’s first DVD 5/5

Excellent
value for money as it has 10 episodes and a variety of bonus features. Very
Impressed that the DVD is almost 2 hours long meaning that little ones will not
bore of it quickly. Simple, bright and appealing to children of all ages in an
easy to open case. I like that the Cbeebies logo is clearly displayed helping
grown-ups to know what is likely to be a good choice for their child. The
insert was a great resource for Boj apps and games. A good mix of episodes and
bonus features too. The characters are varied and visually pleasing. It is a
fun and educational show that builds kids up on so many levels. Creativity,
problem solving and more are intertwined into the stories and this makes it something
I am more than happy to watch the little ones watch. It is something that
adults can enjoy with the kids and I found myself watching the TV to see what
happened next. Favourites were ‘Happy Birthday’, Carry On Carrot’, and Sneezy
Snufferoos’. Not only did the kids enjoy
this, I did too and I felt the developmental encouragement did not over power
the show making unappealing to kids. Less TV guilt for me, and fun and
education for them. Subtle learning, creativity and problem solving is
introduced and is well integrated into the stories to keep them fun and spark
interesting conversations that promote further learning. No need for something
like this to be in Blu-ray and then be charged over the odds for it so I am
glad that the format was DVD. Quality viewing delivered in a simple but
effective format. This product is excellent value for money and worth every
penny. Even if it was not a show that was a firm favourite before, the value
for money and content is hard to overlook. This DVD is great for families with children
of all ages and I would definitely recommend this DVD to any parent looking for
something new, or warmly-loved, for their little one(s). Loved by all in this
house. Excellent value for money 2-hour DVD with aspects of learning, but
oodles of fun for young kids from TV favourite- Boj. Lisa McNeil – Hugh, Eilidh & Chloe – 5, 4 & 2 years

CBeebies character Boj’s first DVD 4.8/5

The DVD arrived promptly and
packaged well. The children loved it instantly and ask to watch it each night
as we arrive home. The DVD was packaged well in a padded envelope and arrived
safely included stickers and a badge which the children loved. The front of the
DVD looks good and is informative. The children love it there are different
episodes on the DVD and you can either watch them all or skip to the one you
like best. My 2 like to watch all of the episodes. My son likes to watch it in
French. My 2 children were excited from the moment I told them we had been
allocated the DVD. When it came in the post they ripped it open and put it on
straight away. They watch all of the episodes as this is an option in the menu
at the beginning. My eldest liked to watch the episodes in French which is an
option on the DVD. My eldest has been watching it in French as so he has
improved his French language skills. They also sing along to the theme tune
which helps their memory and develops musical skills and language skills. The
quality is excellent. I was surprised at how cheap the DVD was, I thought more
like £9.99 as you do get a selection of episodes. I would buy this for my
child, they have really enjoyed it. I would recommend the DVD to others, it is
fun and educational and the children really get into it. Great fun DVD for children
based on the TV show Boj, he gets up to all sorts in the episodes and the
children were mad on it and asked each night we got in if they could watch it,
I sat with them and watched it, I really enjoyed it too. Good fun DVD for the
children to watch and learn whilst not even realising they are doing so, the
character is cute and engaging…the children loved it. Fiona Ainsworth – Barney &

The
cover is colourful and my daughter immediately recognised it as Boj (she enjoys
Boj when she sees it on CBeebies). She was very excited to put it on and watch
it. It was bright, colourful and eye-catching.
It was immediately recognisable as Boj. The DVD case was standard with a
paper insert. It was very child friendly and my daughter wanted to look at the
cover. There was a range of episodes on the DVD. My daughter enjoyed choosing
the ones she wanted to watch from the DVD menu.
The stories are cute, with moral messages about being friendly, helpful
and looking after each other. She has
asked to watch it on a number of occasions. Before receiving the DVD, my
daughter would watch Boj occasionally. She now wants to watch it regularly. It’s
not educational in the traditional sense but there are social themes and the
story lines were something we could talk about. It is a good quality DVD, well
put together and child-friendly. For £7.25 this was good value. I would purchase
this although there are episodes on TV which can be watched for free! I would
recommend this, especially for friends with children of a similar age. It is a
good DVD which my daughter has really enjoyed watching. A good quality DVD which my daughter really
enjoyed. It was Boj-a-boom! Wendy May – Rebecca
