My children are very, very lucky! A parcel arrived from Warner Bros Kids to keep them entertained over half term, and what a lot of lovely things it contained!
Two Scooby Doo Mystery Incoporated DVD's arrived along with an activity book, some sweets and an alien head. Scooby, Shaggy and the gang are extremely loved in our household. Me and Ian feel nostalgic as we enjoy Scooby Doo with our little ones. These titles are updated animations full of paranormal events and monsters centred around Crystal Cove. I love how Scooby Doo spans the generations. These two volumes include eight full episodes of spook hunting antics!
We also received a fabulous Warner Bros Kids Bumper Box of Toons, ten full length DVDs in a Big Faces Box Set! Including favourites from Road Runner, Tom & Jerry, Tweetie Pie, Taz, Daffy Duck, Bugs Bunny, Speedy Gonzales, Porky Pig and Wile E. Coyote, this set introduces the classic characters from my childhood to a whole new generation.
Ian was extremely excited to rediscover the cartoons from his youth and took huge delight sharing his favourites with Freddy. He used to enjoy watching them with his own dad as a child, now he gets to do it with his youngest son! I was surprised how much my toddler enjoyed watching the episodes of the classic toons and giggled his way through the DVDs. They contain scenes of cartoon comedy violence which really tickled him. As Wile E. Coyote got buried alive by falling rocks, Freddy chuckled away! It never did me any harm watching them, so I have no qualms about him doing so. He loved the characters, proving that they are ageless and appeal to old and young alike.
We spent a lovely afternoon watching cartoons with the children. It is a lovely way to spend a few hours during a grey, wet and windy half term holiday. It is great to have some classic titles in the DVD collection, especially ones that appeal to both us parents and our little ones. When it comes to Scooby Doo and Looney Toons there is no such thing as a generation gap.
