Synopsis

Look out of your window at night - there he is! Mr Moon!

Climbing up his ladder and taking his place in the star-studded indigo sky.

But have you ever wondered what Mr Moon does when he's NOT shining down on us?

That is where our story begins.

A brand new CGI animation series, Mr Moon®, ventures into a never-ending source of mystery, wonder, adventure and fun. Mr Moon's playground is the sky above us all. With his Supafast Moon Rocket and his best friends, Silva and Gold Star, Mr Moon zips around exploring planets, stars, constellations, black holes, nebulae and galaxies.

These animated adventures are based on the best selling children's books by Kate Veale.

Review

The Mr Moon books have always been a favorite of my sons so when I was offered the chance to review a new release of the character, I jumped at the chance.

The series is a really well made show about the many and varied things that a child can learn during life.  Manners, looking after your friend and many other things.

Normally with a Disney show like this, it would come across as massively over sweet and to be honest, boring.  This stories really gripped my sons attention for the entire run time and he loved every minute of it.

The characters are cute yet not annoying, the stories really help to push forward how important it is to be kind and loads more things like that.  There are some great moments where the characters teach them some great skills after the story itself such as counting, colors much more.

All in all, this is a great set of stories for toddlers from the ages of 2 to maybe 5 or 6 but maybe older children may find this a bit boring.  If however, you have a children in that age group of 2 to 5 they will probably love this.

Story 4/5
Picture 4/5
Sound 4/5
Special Features N/A
Overall 12/15


"I Likes Mr Moon.  Sunny My Favorite.  I Likes His Pajamas"
