Paw Patrol: Pups and the Pirate Treasure – Review by MJ, age 4¾

One of the boys’ favourite pastimes at the moment is pretending to be members of TV’s Paw Patrol, a team of friendly canine heroes that undertakes missions to help out the residents of Adventure Bay. Although the show is a huge hit in our house we very rarely get to see it (we don’t have Sky and the Channel 5 schedule clashes with the school run), so we jumped at the chance this week to review the latest Paw Patrol DVD.

As I’m not really a Paw Patrol expert, our resident TV critic MJ (age 4¾) has kindly agreed to share his thoughts:

Messy goes to…Brixton Village (Okido exhibition)

If, like us, you’re big fans of Okido magazine and avid viewers of their recent CBeebies show, head down to Brixton Village over half term. Studio 73 gallery is hosting an exhibition of Okido illustrations by founding artist Rachel Ortas. It’s only a tiny space, but worth a look if you’re in the area. You can buy one of the brightly coloured screen prints, or simply pick up a Messy Monster activity postcard to cut out, glue and hang up at home.
