A modern Playschool with excellent presenters & content.
Tikkabilla is one of the best modern, interactive, preschool shows. Tamba, a cute & mischievous baby dragon is the star & he is taken care of by six friendly adults. (Two on a rotation basis.)Each episode features story telling (some of which are acted out), fun makes, mini documentaries (accessed through the windows like Playschool), time telling and entertaining songs. Sometimes there is a cartoon or mime included. The documentaries fall into three categories - wildlife, how objects are made and children at various activities. (Play, household, cultural etc.)The presenters engage well with Tamba & their young audience. Catchy theme tune & inventive title sequence. Blends education & fun very well. Humans & puppets are still the best formula. Tamba is simply irresistible. The soft toy is very popular in our household. Give him a chance.
