Honey, I Shrunk Grandpa!

It is because of my dad that our kids have rather wild imaginations. Sometimes I find them sitting in the timber boat in the garage pretending that they are out at sea, complete with their life jackets on, other times they are setting up a beach in the lounge room - shells, towels, umbrella etc. Their latest escapades have been based around Honey I Shrunk the Kids, Big Cook, Little Cook and The Borrowers. You can imagine their delight when Dad discovered a brand new BBC show called Grandpa in my pocket. My kids have been carrying around Fisher Price Little People this week pretending that it is their Grandpa and Granny.

I don't know when it is due out for release in Australia - we are screening each new issue of Foxtel's CBeebies guide. I am so pleased that there is another BBC show that they will like - Milly was starting to sound like Dora ...

This sounds like a great show. I always loved the Borrowers as a child and my own kids have been enjoying reading the books too. Dora is the favourite show for two of my girls - the worrying thing is that even I am starting to say some of her lines!

Can so relate to that. I must look up whether Dora calls her mum 'muma' because I have no idea where that has appeared from!
I will put a photo up that my dad and the kids played around with on the computer - they shrunk photos of people and placed them in their kitchen. Too cute! :)
There are some great BBC versions of the Borrowers ...
