Maya is a little bee like no other. Thirsty for adventure, she leaves the hive to live in the meadow, free like a bee! The world is just too big and too fascinating to remain confined to the restricted life of the hive. For Maya, the natural beauties of the world are an endless delight for the senses! Her courage, wits and insatiable curiosity will lead her off the beaten track as she wonders at the joys and hitches of life along the way.
The original cartoon series has been on air since 1978 and now it has arrived in the UK since January this year on Tiny Pop three times on weekdays and twice on Saturday and Sunday. Both my children had not watched it before as we didn’t have any of these channels (Virgin nor Sky) but luckily we were sent a DVD of the show along with a beautiful greenish Flip plush toy.
The series is packed with adventure and fun (for children aged 4 – 6) to enjoy! Maya is always going off for adventures with her friends, Flip the grasshopper and Willy the drone bee, Ben the dung beetle, Mrs. Cassandra (Maya’s teacher), to explore a wonderful world steeped in mystery, with magical encounters to be had around every corner! Each episode is about 12 minutes long with delightful music and lovely animation. Both of my children enjoyed watching it. There is always a fun and interesting story!
