Peter Rabbit - Tales of the Start of Spring DVD Review & Giveaway

I don't know who was more excited when Peter Rabbit became an animation series for CBeebies. Quite possibly, it was me rather than my son J. For although I had read Beatrix Potter's books and had the privilege of visiting the Lake District where it all began, J was yet to be introduced to the army of characters she penned.

Both J and I are now huge fans of Peter Rabbit. How can you not like this extraordinary character with a taste for adventure and abundant courage, who always seems to find his way into a sticky situation and then a thrilling way out of it.

Beatrix Potter's timeless characters are now available on DVD in Peter Rabbit - Tales of the Start of Spring. I know, it doesn't quite feel like spring at the moment. But with Easter just days away and little bunny rabbits hopping in the meadows, the warmth and the sunshine cannot be far behind.

Peter Rabbit - Tales of the Start of Spring DVD

And for days when you are stuck indoors due to strong winds and heavy rains, the Peter Rabbit DVD could be the perfect solution to the problem of boredom. It features over a hundred minutes of adventure as Peter Rabbit and his friends Benjamin Bunny and Lily Bobtail overcome obstacles and outsmart predators. We could all do with a  friend like Peter by our side, somebody who can think on his feet and improvise in the face of imminent danger.

The DVD includes the special 22 minute episode ‘The Tale of The Start of Spring’ along with 7 other stories - The Tale of the Radish Robbers, The Tale of the Secret Treehouse, The Tale of the Dash in the Dark, The Tale of the Broken Bed, The Tale of Benjamin’s New Map, The Tale of the Terrible Trap, and the Tale of the Peekboo Rabbits.

With all the usual suspects on board, you are sure to find enough thrills in these storylines to fire your imagination. 

In addition to the animated tales, the DVD houses a free Hop Outside insert with outdoor activities for little ones to enjoy with their families. So they can have exciting adventures of their own when they are out and about.
