But why is she sitting watching Postman Pat and telling me off for singing along to the theme tune? Because she was sent a special Postman Pat vehicle from Character Options and after playing with it all morning she shouted "YES" when I asked her if she wanted to watch Postman Pat.
As a child of the 70/80s I remember watching Postman Pat as a child and I'm pleased to see that the format hasn't changed that much, the episodes are still made using the same stop-motion technology rather than CGI like everything seems to be these days, and Pat hasn't changed himself and neither has the village or the theme tune. The only difference is that, with the Special Delivery Service version it's slightly more modern with the use of helicopters and you see Pencaster as well as Greendale.
The Postman Pat vehicle she has been sent is his classic, bright red van, the one he drives around Greendale in to deliver all his letters and parcels. The van comes with two parcels which fit in the back of the van with opening doors and a Pat himself who also fits behind the steering wheel to drive the van. It's just a shame it doesn't come with Jess the cat as well as it's strange to see Pat driving around without Jess!
The classic Royal Mail van can be used on it's own, or can be added to the rest of Postman Pat's vehicles, accessories and buildings which also include a road and rail tracks to build your own Greendale!
My 3 year old daughter is loving the van, made even more special by the accessories and that the doors open and close and that Pat can be used inside the van or out! She's spent all morning playing with it and I know if I show her the rest of the Postman Pat vehicles she'll want more of them!
It's also a great way to introduce a show that I enjoyed as a child to my daughter. In fact one of the best things about becoming a parent is rediscovering old, beloved movies and TV shows that I remember as a child!
we were sent a Classic Postman Pat Vehicle from Character Online for free on the understanding I would write an honest review of what we thought about it. I received no payment and the review is my own honest and unbiased opinion of the product and I retain full editorial control and integrity.
