Abadas is a CBeebies show screened every day Monday to Friday at 9.05am. It is about Hari the hippo, Ela the fox and Seren the bat who live in a pop-up book under Ben’s bed. There is an educational element to the show in that it helps children to learn new vocabulary that corresponds with objects they are likely to come across in childhood. It also helps to organise their talk to re-tell a story in its correct sequence. Questions are asked and answered which helps children confirm what they have learned.
There are 9 episodes on this DVD where they learn about submarine; camera; cherry; umbrella; roller skates; crown; lighthouse; owl and stile. Both of my children enjoyed watching it though it is aimed at pre-school children like my daughter who just turned 4. It helps her to expand her vocabulary and I’ve noticed she is slightly more inquisitive with her questioning too. It’s nice that she is not just watching the show but learning something new. On the other hand, my son who is 5 years old loves the singing and characters but felt that he is too old for it.This DVD comes with a free colouring-in poster. Ms C is having fun colouring in.
I rate this 5 stars out of 5 for the content and music. It was great to watch together especially when the weather is cold and miserable outside! It is also useful for car journeys if you have a in-car DVD player!
