Do you have a Q Pootle fan in your house? If so then they will be pleased to hear that the stars of the Cbeebies animated series were launched on DVD and digital platforms on 6th October 2014.
Bee has only just started getting into Cbeebies. Before she was too busy jumping around and trashing (literally) the room. And to keep her out of mischief we used to go out to toddler groups most mornings so didn’t have much time to watch TV.
Now that she has calmed down a bit, she will settle down to watch a bit of TV while I can get on with things around the house. We have come across Q Pottle 5, just a handful of times so was pleased to be able to review the DVD and watch it properly.
Q Pootle 5 is based on the best seller books by author and illustrator Nick Butterworth.
The DVD is packed with 13 episodes and we particularly liked the extras which included a karaoke:
Space is a fun place to be with Q Pootle 5. Join him and his forends Oopsy, Eddi, Stella, Ray, Groobie. Bud-D and Planet Dave as they tackle the everyday problems of the final frontier in 13 fantastic adventures, including ‘The Great Space Race’, ‘The Singing Valley’, ‘Hitting the High Note’, and ‘Runaway Rocket’. Fans young and old, can also sing along with Q Pootle 5 and his friends with ‘Okidoki Karaoke’ and discover how the series was created with interviews with the cast and crew of the show.
You can get a taste of the DVD with this trailer.
Over the weekend I popped the DVD into the laptop for the girls….both the girls were mesmerized. I thought Munchkin at 8 would think it was too babyish for her but in all honesty she was more engrossed with the characters than Bee was. But then Bee does not sit still for long; for her one episode at a time is usually enough. The DVD in total is 143 minutes.
What we also loved about the DVD is that it came with a smoothie recipe, a quiz and some colouring.
Fans will also be pleased to hear that in addition to the DVD release, Q Pootle 5 puzzles and games have also been launched. Furthemore, two picture books and also a magazine are also due to be launched!
Disclaimer: We were sent a copy of the DVD in return for a mention of the launch and a review. All thoughts and opinons are my own.
Oh this looks like a lot of fun. I bet even my school aged boys would like this.

What Fun. My kddies would have liked it when they were younger too.
We have never come across this before. I know Fran would love this, she is currently mad keen on telly tubbies and I need a change as well!
I’ve not seen this yet on CBeebies but I’m sure my son would like it.

My 3 year old really likes this show so I can imagine the DVD going down a treat!
This looks so cute, I think even I would watch it x
I didn’t know there was an animated series of Q Pootle 5. Aiden had a Q Pootle 5 book about 10 years ago and both girls still like to read it now. I have to admit I’m not the biggest fan but that’s probably because I’ve had to read it so much!

How great is that DVD – something our kids would love to have on in the back of the car when we are on long journeys!
My son is a tween, so we are past this stage at our house. But this is just the type of program he would have loved when he was smaller.
This looks like an absolute must-have for all Q-pootle fans.
