Both my children started to watch Olly the Little White Van about 2 years ago. We first got to know the programme as both of my children are Justin Fletcher fans. Each episode is about five minutes long and is suitable for boys and girls aged 2 – 6. They are now airing on Milkshake daily at 6.50am and several times a day on Cartoonito.
Who is Olly?
Olly is a Little White Van who helps his friends as much as he can. He isn’t a racing car or fire engine, but he and his driver Stan are very good at helping everyone out, every day. Like an enthusiastic puppy he bounds around the village of Bumpton talking to everyone, and is happiest when he is setting up a new bus service to the seaside, helping Alice when she is preparing for her driving test, or sprucing up an old VW.
Even though my son is 6 years old, he is still very much enjoys watching it and the same with my 4 year old daughter as they capture their attention. The shows are very easy to understand and watch. In each episode, it features a lively song sung by the cast of each specific episode. This is a fun and interesting show!
Good news! Now Olly the White Van is making appearance in cinemas across the UK on 24th February 2014, as two brand new half hour specials in Picture House Cinemas.
