Could only get this second hand, but it's fantastic! Mr Benn heads off into space to find a planet with vast wealth but nothing to buy, and then a planet where they have everything but colour. A really good way to discuss what makes our planet special and what we need/want for younger children. Plan to use it with 5 years olds.
