As I've said before, Lexi absolutely loves Little Charley Bear. Everything about the TV programme absolutely fascinates her from the wonderfully witty narration courtesy of James Corden (star of Gavin & Stacey amongst other things), Little Charley Bear's wild, wacky and fantastic imagination, his friends Bellarina, Frozo, Caramel, Rivet, Nibblit and Midge and the wonderful adventures they all star in so well; there isn't anything about the programme and the characters that she doesn't love!
So when we were asked to review Little Charley Bear's brand new DVD which was released today, 30 January 2012, Lexi was very excited!
Little Charley Bear - Antarctic Charley
Lexi had seen a few of the episodes already on CBeebies but didn't mind one little bit watching them again.... and again..... and again!! An added bonus for Lexi (and especially Mummy!!!) was that there were new episodes on there that she hadn't seen before which made her even more excited and even more eager to watch it the second it arrived in the post!
The DVD consists of 6 brilliant episodes all centred around a wintery theme.
"In these latest stories we discover that Charley loves wrapping up in his winter clothes! The only problem is that it’s summer outside, so he heads out on an adventure to the Antarctic to seek out the cold weather. Playing in the snow, Charley gets scared by a penguin that keeps following him. But the Penguin just wants to play! Elsewhere Charley puts his courage to the test, climbing a mountain to save Midge and coming face to face with a shark whilst fishing!"

Loved By Lexi?
It's snow-wonder everyone loves Little Charley Bear with these latest six episodes. Lexi absolutely loved each and every one! Lexi is already the very proud owner of a talking Charley Bear toy, a few other Charley Bear toys plus his first DVD and now this one and the collection, I'm sure, will continue to grow. At 2 years 6 months old, Lexi is now beginning to love Little Charley Bear not only for the brilliant voices, bright colours and great content of the episodes but also for the jokes, laughter and the very well written and thought out storylines which she can now understand. Little Charley Bear is fantastic for all ages and I am sure he will continue to be a firm favourite in our household for a very long time to come which is why we give Little Charley Bear's new DVD, Antarctic Charley, a huge thumbs up from Mummy and an even bigger thumbs up from Lexi!
