It’s fair to say that when we went away over Easter the weather wasn’t the best, but our beautiful holiday cottage came complete with a DVD player and I was well prepared having packed The Beatrix Potter Collection on DVD.
2016 marks 150 years since the birth of Beatrix Potter, one of the world’s best-loved children’s authors, certainly one of my favourite authors. I probably shouldn’t admit this but when we visited the Lake District many years ago and I got to visit her farm, the lovely Hilltop, now owned by The National Trust, it was one of the best moments of my life.
To help celebrate the anniversary Beatrix Potter fans everywhere can now enjoy a special boxed set collection of stories and I couldn’t wait to share them with L, he is already a fan of The Tales of Peter Rabbit, but I loved watching these animated tales when I was younger and having all of the episodes gathered together in the three DVD box set was the perfect way to spend a rainy afternoon.
These classic Peter Rabbit episodes lovingly recreate the enchantment and magic of the books, with beatiful animation and charming music some of my favourite Beatrix Potter stories are bought to life and it was really lovely to snuggle up and enjoy them with L.
In the box set you get;
Disc 1 – The Tale of Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny, The Tale of the Flopsy Bunnies and Mrs. Tittlemouse, and The Tale of Tom Kitten and Jemima Puddle-Duck
Disc 2 – The Tale of Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle and Mr. Jeremy Fisher, The Tale of Mr Tod: The Further Adventures of Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny, and The Tale of Two Bad Mice and Johnny Town-Mouse
Disc 3 – The Tale of Pigling Bland, The Tale of Samuel Whiskers or The Roly-Poly Pudding and The Tailor of Gloucester
L went straight for disc 2, wanting to watch Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle which was fine with me and he loved it, he especially Mr.Jeremy Fisher, happily yelling frwog, frwog at the TV everytime he made an appearance.
These classic tales are going to be for years and years by him and probably even longer by me.
Disclosure – we were sent our DVDs in return for an honest review
