By The Steel Remains TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 28 Jan. 2010
Format: Audio CD
There are 5 10 minute stories on the CD

1. A Chorus for us
2. Rolling along
3. To play or not to play
4. The muffin express
5. Samuel's dance

Other reviewers write that they play the CD in the car but we have had it at home as a 10 minute calm time. Our 3 year old thinks they are great. Good quality stuff

I saw this CD and thought it would be a nice change to review something different, and as a new generation has recently been born into my family, it might give me an idea for future b'day presents.

All I can say is that is is utterly delightful - the CD features 5 tales (A Chorus For US, Rolling Along, To Play Or Not To Play, The Muffin Express and Samuel's Dance), and runs for 50 mins, so could easily be listened to for 5 nights a week at bedtime. The tales are interspersed with many, many little songs, and have some 'made up' words that I think any child into the series would love, but from an adult perspective, if this had been on in my car for a whole 50 mins, then I would have had to resort to the 'oh, no, the CD player isn't working. We'll have to have a look at it when we get home' scenario.

Fans of the series will not be disappointed, and this CD is going off to make a youngster very happy.

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.

I'm sure that any young fan of the TV series will love this - and those who have never seen it will also enjoy it I'm sure.
Five delightful stories peppered with cheerful songs make it really good fun to listen to and all the charachters are there - Muffin being a particular favourite in our house and I personally love the bird references - 'Come on everybirdy' etc...
It drops a star because, to me, the narration at times sounded stilted and patched together rather than the natural flow you would achieve from having all the characters recording it together but, hey, my 3 year old loves it and is utterly hooked (it goes everwhere with us at the moment!) and I'll allow him to be the judge...

Like others I was a little left wanting with this for the kids, who at 6 and 5 were way too old for the material, and I intend to pass it on to a friend with much younger children.
Not having seen the actual TV show, made it a bit like a regular "Listen & repeat" children's CD to an extent, although as always, one cannot argue with the excellent production quality and sound of BBC audio.
It was fun, but a little like listening blind, and as important as visual stimulation in conjunction with listening is to toddlers development, you're probably better to seek out the actual TV shows on DVD, and stick to regular singalong, and music CD's.

I got this for my daughter and her daughter. Here's her view: "Join muffin and the gang on a musical adventure. A great CD packed full of catchy tunes and cute stories. We played this CD on a long car trip and my 15 month old was thoroughly entertained. We found ourselves singing along and playing the stories again. The voices are very sweet and make it an enjoyable listen. This would make a lovely present even if they are not familiar with the 3rd and Bird tv program this CD is still guaranteed to keep your little one hooked and bop along. This really is a lovely CD you will not be disappointed."

If you have children like mine, who never want you to stop reading at bedtime, then an Audio CD like 'The Muffin Express' is the answer.

We were all enchanted by the lovely stories on this CD, although I do feel it helped 'knowing' the lovely characters from 3rd and Bird before hand (CBeebies if you're interested). Muffin definitely is our favourite!

A great selection, and running to just under an hour, it alowed my sleepy heads that 'one last story'(along with some songs) before falling asleep.

Recommended.

for the kids. I've had enough of it though!

My 2 and 3 year old really enjoy listening to this when we're on our way to playschool. We have never seen 3rd and Bird but, the fact it is by the same creator as The Wonder Pets, which is one of their favorites i thought it would be pretty good to give it a go.

Each episode seams to be about working together/teamwork and compromising so everyone is happy which are great things for kids to learn.
