When I asked my son to watch this DVD, he replied he had watched it on Cbeebies. I was totally unaware of the show as it is shown at 8am in the morning. At that time, normally I am still tidying the rooms.
‘Woolly and Tig’ is an aid to understanding the ‘self’, providing a keystone in learning for the pre-school child. The show takes the form of short, five-minute live action dramas about a three year old girl and her toy spider. The dramas explore the feelings that children have when faced with new experiences. From a first day at nursery school to meeting a man with a beard, uncertainty and anxiety are replaced by fun and laughter when Woolly is animated to life. Anger, jealousy, fear, sadness are just some of the feelings explored in a simple, fun and positive way.
In this DVD, there are 15 episodes. They are First Day; Changing my Room; Hair Wash Day; Baby Ben; Granny No No; Sharing; Losing Things; Open Wide; Swing Park; The Funfair; Eating New Foods; Choosing; Fire alarm; The Beard; and Hair Cut. They also come with a reward chart and stickers which is great to help encourage and acknowledge your little ones daily achievements.
Each episode is only five minutes long. They are very easy to watch and children won’t get bored easily. I can see the benefit of each episode and it is easy to explain to my daughter what to do when facing new experiences. After watching the DVD, we decided to make our own woolly. We used Play Doh, pipe cleaners, toothpicks and foam. This is our woolly!
The target audience for the DVD is for pre-school children. It is one of the DVDs to put on when you want them to learn. I rate this DVD 5 stars out of 5 for it’s educational benefits.
