Can you believe that Postman Pat is 30! It only seems like yesterday that I was watching as a child, oh dear that must mean I am getting old too.
All of the children have at some time or another sat down and watched Postman Pat with me, over the years and Eowyn is no exception. She happily sat and watched the lovely Jess the cat and the jolly postman, she even commented that he didn’t look like our postman, which is probably a good thing!
When I put the DVD on, I could hear Xene and Lochlan singing away to the theme tune, so they obviously haven’t forgotten it…
Both Kaide and Neva came into the lounge and sat down for a few episodes.
The only down side is that when Eowyn hears the postvan, (yes our road is a long country one, so we have a van, which did make it easier for her to understand than a walking postman) she eagerly looks out of the window to try and see the black and white cat!!
A wonderful collection of stories that will keep children and adults entertained for a long while yet. Although I would recommend only a few epsiodes at a time otherwise you have that theme tune stuck in your head for weeks. The songs on the CD are also likely to get stuck up there too….
A good family DVD that will still be relevant in the many years to come.

    Awww happy birthday Postman Pat! I used to watch him when I was little too 🙂 It’s pretty good to get 8 episodes, it annoys me when you buy kids DVDs and you only get 3 short eps! Might have to put this on the potential-gifts-list!
