Age is just a number right? Well if you can believe it, Postman Pat is now 30 years old and still going strong. Keen to make sure that Pat’s birthday doesn’t go unnoticed the residents of Greendale get together to arrange a surprise birthday party for their favourite postie. Everyone is so busy with the preparations that poor old Pat gets the wrong end of the stick and thinks that everyone has forgotten his special day.
We were sent the birthday edition of the DVD to review. This special edition DVD comes with over 3 hours of entertainment in 8 special episodes and a bonus party CD so that you can carry on the celebrations long after the DVD has finished. Little Bean loves Postman Pat anyway and of course her favourite character is Jess the cat. Her favourite episode at the moment is Pat’s Great Big Party which is probably because of all the preparations we have been doing for Beanie Boy’s special birthday celebrations. She also likes Toy Soldiers and Pirate Treasure. Beanie Boy gets really excited when he hears the Postman Pat tune and crawls speedily over to the TV to watch so I think that’s a pretty good endorsement for him too.
I fail to see how anyone couldn’t love this Special Edition DVD which brings back happy memories of childhood for me and now the opportunity to make new memories with my children, doesn’t the saying go “life begins at 30”? Well it certainly does for Pat!
