In the Night Garden is a big favourite in our house, so much so, it’s part of our bedtime routine. You follow the main characters of Igglepiggle, Upsy Daisy and Makka Pakka on their adventures along with their friends which include Tombliboos, the Pontipines and the Wottingers in the very colorful magic forest. It’s a great program to designed to relax and calm the children before bed. Each character has its own little story and has some fab quirkiness.
At the end of the programme one of the charters will have a bedtime story, which is created by the magical gazebo that sits in the center of the garden the story is about what happened in the episode. The bit we all love is sometimes the characters dance under the gazebo and we all join in. Then one at a time they go to bed. with Igglepiggle going off on his little sailing boat.
There are all sorts of In The Night Garden products available from KD.
We have been looking at the In the Night Garden Fun and Learn projector which is suitable for ages 2+ and requires 3 aaa batteries which are included. This is a great learning toy, as you turn the light it will play a different tune from the program for the charter that is projected from the torch. There are two games, one to help learn colours, numbers and shapes and the other, discovery in a little quiz. Something I always get a little too involved with.
Boo loved the projector, unlike her sister, she is a huge fan of the dark. So had a lot of fun lighting her room up with her favourite characters. One of the things I did like about the projector was how calming it was, at the same time as being super colourful and engaging, it had a calming feel to it. With a twinkly tune to lull Boo to sleep!
Not something I think she expected.
The torch will turn itself off if not played with, so great for taking to bed for the little ones. Even good for those that are not such fans of the dark. Like all toys from KD, they are built to last, which is always a massive plus.
