GOOD FOR TOTS - ANNOYING FOR ADULTS,
This review is from: 3rd and Bird: The Muffin Express and Other Stories (3rd & Bird) (Audio CD)There are 50 mins of storytime and singing on this CD split into 10 min segments.
It is all together too loud, chirpy, shrieky and annoying for me to listen to for long BUT (as is typical) my toddler nearly 3 clearly enjoys it. So it does seem to entertain and appeal to the target audience even though there are other CDs she likes better than this one which is why I've not given 5 stars.
Perhaps she would have liked it more, seeing the actual TV show (on CBeebies first) but she came to the CD not knowing any of the characters so it took a few goes before she really liked listening to it. I've found this with a lot of CDs/DVDs that even if your child says they don't like them initially, put them away for a little while and re-introduce them a little later. Many my toddler didn't like at first (Maisy, Bagpuss) are firm favourites now.
I would say a good buy especially if your child likes the TV show.
