In The Night Garden Party at CBeebies Land

“Yes, my name is IgglePiggle,” is something I have heard every single day over the last three odd years. If you are a parent to a 0-4 year old, you will know what I am talking about. If you have ever been around a 0-4 year old, you too will know what I am talking about. For all the rest, what planet do you inhabit?

Bedtime in most households is synonymous with In The Night Garden playing on the CBeebies TV channel. It is when IgglePiggle, Upsy Daisy and Co. make their daily sojourn through the garden at night.

It is a year since CBeebies Land at Alton Towers opened the In The Night Garden Magical Boat Ride. They hosted a lovely birthday party to mark the occasion, and J was invited to attend with his family. Imagine the excitement in the C-house when a personalised invitation from IgglePiggle came through the letterbox!

The one year anniversary celebrations started with IgglePiggle unfurling the world’s largest polar fleece blanket in order to set a new Guinness World Record. Made by Dreamtex Ltd, who manufacture the In the Night Garden Home Textile Collection, the record-breaking blanket measured in at 98.8m.sq. A Guinness World Records Adjudicator verified the new Guinness World Records title, presenting IgglePiggle with an official certificate to mark the achievement.

The party that followed was well attended by excited children and their families. IgglePiggle and Upsy Daisy were on hand to pose for photographs with the little ones. There was a fantastic team of entertainers to keep the star-struck crowd entertained. There was singing, dancing, music and a book reading session that was very popular.

If the dance floor proved too overwhelming, little ones had the option to participate in a variety of art and craft activities. They could decorate their own party hat or watch a balloon animal take shape. J chose to colour in Maka Paka and his pebbles. He also got to make a bouncy ball, complete with decorations of his choice.

No birthday party would be complete without food and drink. There was a delicious buffet spread with hot and cold drinks to keep everyone well satiated throughout the proceedings. And birthday cake, of course. Cake consumed, goody bags handed out, it was time to say thank you and goodbye to IgglePiggle and Upsy Daisy.

But the day was far from over. After the party, we ventured out into CBeebies Land to experience the In The Night Garden Magical Boat Ride. J loved it, and I loved it too. It was so relaxing and soothing, no wonder they call it magic. Take a look and judge for yourself.
