We was sent a copy of the DVD to review, we was away over the Easter holidays so the boys have spent the past week watching the DVD and have now become big Shaun the Sheep fans, especially the youngest one who asks to watch the DVD every day.

Shaun the Sheep first appeared in the Academy Award winning Wallace & Gromit film ‘A close shave’, Shaun then went onto star in his own series which was launched on BBC one in 2007. The characters are quirky and funny and are very loveable.

When the boys watched the DVD the house was in complete silence until they erupted in laughter, every episode is comical and fun for all the family to enjoy.

My eldest’s favourite part of the DVD is in the the first episode when Shaun is training up for the sheepdog trials; when they turn up to the trials, it is pouring down with rain and they are the only ones their to enter, they quickly think that they are going to be awarded with the giant trophy but instead are presented with a little tiny one. Jak thought that this was hilarious and says that it is definitely his type of humour. The youngest likes the baby sheep, Timmy, who is always spitting out his dummy, he is in fots of giggles each time he sees it

The DVD runs for 70 minutes, with 10 episodes each running for about 7 minutes each long. It seems quite long but my youngest who is 2 and a half managed to sit through it without losing interest in the DVD.

I have been given a few Shaun the Sheep activity sheets for you to download including

  • Blitzer dot to dot
