GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED. See the end of the post for the winner.

IF YOU visited the blog yesterday, you would have seen the rock star that kindly offered up an interview.

Yes, that’s Raggs, from the live action and animated TV show of the same name and rockin’ Kids Club Band. It’s fair to say, our surprise interview caused quite a few giggles.

Raggs is a pretty familiar character in our household, thanks to previously being part of our afternoon TV schedule. It’s returning to TV on Boomerang and 7TWO, by the way. He’s also familiar to our car, maybe a little too familiar. Although, Tutti Fruity Baby is a rather fine song!

Three-year-old Ella didn’t sit still too long when we popped in the new batch of Raggs episodes from the Move Your Tails! DVD, promptly standing up, putting hands on her hips and wiggling to the theme song.

When there are so many movie-length DVDs out there, it’s nice to discover something for toddlers and preschoolers that has TV-length episodes. Even better when the episodes revolve around play and play ideas. We all need those!

Ella had a giggling fit during one scene where one of the five dogs couldn’t stop saying the word “fleas’’. Small things, huh. Another scene, which had the five dogs playing doctors, meant I spent the rest of the afternoon operating on her to get rid of bees in her stomach.

What appeals to me about the wonderfully bright Raggs, other than the Australian accents, is that it addresses preschool curriculum topics (yes, really), looks at emotions and there’s great variety within its format to keep little ones engaged.  The downside is that those songs are just way too catchy.

Although, you can put up with that when you have characters like the wise-cracking cat Dumpster. He was definitely put in the show to entertain parents.

For more information on the show or DVD, visit www.raggs.com.au. Now for the giveaway…

    I love playing “Peek-a-Boo” with my little boy! He kicks his legs and squeals in delight!! Can’t wait till he is a little older and can play games like Hide’n’Seek and Chasey!!

  2. Claireyh says:

    We have a couple of these, old ones, but my little nephew loves them. He is struggling with some developmental delay at the moment and I know when he comes to visit us he loves the Doggy One.

    We love anything crafty, but especially pasting, painting and face paint.

    My favourite game to play at the moment with my 4 year old is musical chairs. This is something she has learnt to play at kinder but doesn’t quite get that we don’t have the same numbers at home. So we have 2 chairs and it’s mummy’s job to run around the chairs until zoe presses stop on her music box – I then run to one of the chairs. She giggles with delight – so does my 2 year old who watches on in fascination at mummy being silly. We then swap and it’s Zoe’s turn to run around. They don’t care if it’s played the right way – they are just having fun!

  9. Ash Mack says:

    MY favourite game to play with the kids is monopoly. It gets their brain ticking, helps with their maths and we all have fun too.

    Because my 4 kids range in age from nearly 16 down to 3 yrs old , we all love the xbox 360 kinect games . Great fun for the whole family .

  13. Sarah Shelley says:

    My 3 1/2 and 1 1/2 year old sons and i love to take turns doing ‘Body Slams’ on each others belly’s we take it in turns having the other 2 run up and body slam on top of each of us. It is hilarious and helps the two boys bond a little more which is sometimes hard as they are so close in age and get a little competitive. And no! i don’t crush their little bodies when it’s my turn, i only body slam with my arms but they don’t care of the difference. LOL

    I would love to show Raggs to the boys – I think they would LOVE him ! Exciting… My fav game at the moment is a colours game i play while i feed Emily – I have 6 large round coloured dots on the wall ( from my BSK page) ! and while i feed, i get the boys to learn colours… “Find me the BLUE one Jack” and he sometimes gets it right and other times we go through all the colours etc.. its good fun for them, educational and i can do it while feeding Emily ! Yay … thats the way !

    I love playing in the park with my friend’s little boy… usually I’m the shark and he has to escape me!

  23. Wendy Hatton says:

    Isabelle (4yo) loves to play pretend- shopping, going for a picnic, being at school, practically anything really. She seems to like that I really get into the occasion and act out her characters a bit. I get the impression that pretenders at kinder are a little on the passive side.

  24. Ann Sculley says:

    We have a game called build a beetle and my daughter loves it ,we have games every sat afternoon and she always asks for the bug game 🙂

  28. I’ve never seen Raggs before! I must be deprived…….The favourite game between Megan and I at the moment is colouring in. She is crazy about it. And glueing (spelling?) things onto paper. With all the kids, all I can say is that one can never outgrow homemade playdough!

  29. I also shared this on Facebook.

    I love playing hide and seek with my soon to be 4 yr old and 1 1/2 yr old. We have so much fun trying to find each other although their hidding spots need a little work on.

  33. Trudy says:

    Hush. Mummy’s got a headache.

  34. Caroline says:

    Counting because it helps develop their cognitive reasoning.

  35. jodie ward says:
