Yesterday saw the release of Boj - Blast Off Buddies, the popular CBeebies character's first ever DVD, and Pierre was delighted to get a copy to review. We recently discovered Boj in his ipad app so seeing him on screen was great fun. Being bilingual, Pierre was particularly delighted to discover that the episodes are available in both English and French. I also loved the blast from the past of listening to Jason Donovan providing Boj's dad's voice ! I originally thought Boj was a mouse but he is actually a bilby – an endangered bandicoot originally from the Australian Outback. The show is a celebration of childhood - full of creativity and messy fun, and each episode sees Boj finding a solution to a dilemma or a situation with one of his totally inspired ‘Boj-a-boom ideas!’
The DVD has a runtime of 114 minutes and features 10 episodes :
Blast Off Buddies - Denzil accidentally breaks Gavin's new toy rocket, so Boj comes up with an idea that will make the spacecraft fly.
Hoppy Birthday - It's Rupa's birthday and Boj has a boj-a-boom idea to help Mia get her an amazing present
Flat as a Pancake - It's a hot day in Giggly Park and Denzil has invited some friends over to play. Boj gets a boj-a-boom idea how to mend the leaky paddling pool with Mrs Woof's extra sticky pancakes!
Carry On Carrot - Mrs Woof makes her big soup but is missing Mr Cloppity's carrots because his crop has failed
Giggly Park Rescue Squad - Denzil, Gavin and Boj rescue the residents of Giggly Park from a variety of mishaps and create a game they can all play happily together
The Giggly Dig - The friends want to bury their own time capsules but soon begin to miss the items they put inside them
Denzil's Lost Teddy - Denzil has lost his treasured teddy bear, Snugsy. The Twitchlets have Snugsy and they won't give him back! How can Boj get him back to Denzil and keep the Twitchlets happy?
Boj the Collector- All Boj's buddies have collections and Boj wants one too. But he loves everything in Giggly Park so much that he can t decide which things to collect
Sneezy Snufferoos - To keep birds away, Mr Cloppity hangs out yoghurt pots on string over his seeds and Boj's friends are ill so can't come out to play
Keep On Going - Boj, Rupa and Gavin are trekking for their Ranger survival badges. When Gavin's satnav boots go on the blink, Boj has an idea to get them back on track!
The DVD also has some lovely exclusive extras, with three sing-along karaoke songs and printable colouring in sheets to keep the kids entertained once they've finished watching.
The DVD distributed by Gold Ant will be available from the 18th May at Sainsbury’s (RRP £4.99), Asda (£5.99) and Amazon (£7.25).
