5.0 out of 5 stars
A great DVD, 21 Feb. 2011
A cute little pig living interesting adventures with his friends and family. These are all great stories, with the perfect length and level of language for younger kids, full of intelligent plots and funny situations... I'm trying to teach English to my 5 years old daughter (I'm not a native English speaker as you probably can tell by now), and Wibbly Pig is perfect for my purpose. We are absolute fans of Mick Inkpen and Kipper's episodes and books (we especially love Arnold, the little pig from Kipper the Dog) and we've already got our hands on every Kipper DVD we could get (most of which are not easy to find by the way!). But most Kipper's adventures need a bit more vocabulary and grammar than Wibbly Pig would require. Here the off-screen voice asks questions and Wibbly gives answers, and the dialogs are often a bit repetitive (iterative tale structure is frequent). That makes it a perfect teaching tool for English. It has enough charm to work with a 5+ years old kid even if it's probably intended for a younger audience, so this is yet another treasured DVD from our collection of Mick Inkpen's episodes.
