When Little Mr is at his Grandparents house during the week whilst we are at work, they get to spend a lot of quality time together doing lots of fun and interesting things. Usually they will spent the morning out and about in the garden or going shopping and in the afternoon they have an afternoon with puzzles, learning sounds, playing shops and watching Bing. It’s his favourite TV programme to watch with his Grandad and he’s become a big Bing fan.
Bing is a relatively new TV programme aimed at toddlers, currently being aired on CBeebies. Bing and his friends; Sula, Flop, Pando and Coco engage with little ones and teach them about the world around them.
Little Mr was a very lucky boy recently and was sent My Friend Bing to take away on holiday with him. He was, of course, delighted with him and he came away to Weymouth with us just last week.
The My Friend Bing toy is an interactive toy which sounds and acts just like he does on the TV programme. His accent is instantly recognisable to little ones and Little Mr’s face was a picture when he touched Bing’s button to make him talk.
My Friend Bing speaks really clearly and uses phrases and sings songs which little ones will find familiar. I love the way Bing will interact with little ones to play games and if he topples over he’ll ask them to pick him back up again. We also love watching Bing’s ears wiggle as he talks and sings.
There’s lots of fun features to play with My Friend Bing and it has captivated Little Mr’s attention on more than one occasion on holiday and again, back at home. I know who Little Mr will be taking to Nanny and Grandad’s with him when we go back to work after the Summer Break.
