What's with the non sequential episodes ?
on 8 March 2016
I'll admit the first time I saw In the night garden I had my reservations, initial impressions were that my sister was feeding my nephew some Teletubby inspired brain rotting drivel. As I continued to watch with one brow raised I could clearly see that my first judgement was as hasty as it was wrong.
In the night garden plays an important part in my 18 month old nephews established routine and he knows that when the show is over its time for bed. At the end of a hard days exploring or mischievous shenanigans he snuggles up with mummy and is content to watch in comfort and on less exuberant days any of my nephews remaining energy is quickly burnt off singing and dancing along leaving him well and truly ready for bed.
I purchased a few of the In the night garden DVDs for my sister to put on her tablet to take on holiday so that my nephews routine was not disrupted, which I am told worked a treat despite a slight time difference. As other reviews rightly pointed out for those without a catch-up TV service a couple of these DVDs are essential if you rely on them as a routine and miss the day's episode on CBBC.
It's just a shame seasonal box sets aren't available as it would not just be more economical but also space saving for those wanting the complete collection.
This DVD has a runtime of 141 minutes and includes the following episodes
Season 1 Episode 18 - Quiet Please Tombliboos!! Upsy Daisy Wants to Sing!! (First aired 11/04/07).
Season 1 Episode 37 - Upsy Daisy Kisses Everything (First aired 23/10/07).
Season 1 Episode 22 - Upsy Daisy's Big Loud Sing Song (First aired 17/04/07).
Season 1 Episode 26 - Igglepiggle Looks For Upsy Daisy and Follows Her Bed (First aired 23/04/07).
Season 1 Episode 9 - The Ninky Nonk Wants a Kiss (First aired 29/03/07).
DVD packaging can change over time and the packaging shown in my pictures was purchased from " Direct Entertainment Supplies" November 2015 and the disc is R2.
