The first word Clay said wasn't daddy or mummy, it was actually 'Wraa'. He has been watching Raa Raa the Noisy Lion and absolutely loved it. Even Abby is a big fan. When I told her that we get to preview a couple of the new episodes that is not even out yet on TV, she was really excited and asked me to put it on. 'Can we watch it now mummy? Please mummy, can we watch the new Raa Raa now?' Of course we can!

Episode 1: Doctor Raa Raa

In the first episode, Raa Raa was trying to be a helpful doctor by helping his friends who seem to be hurt. By doing what he thought was right, he's created some hilarious moments. I used the opportunity to teach Abby how important it is to listen. I love shows that teaches children the right behaviours.

Episode 2: Raa Raa's Noisy Challenge

Raa Raa is being challenged by Crocky to make a noise with everything in the Jingly Jangly Jungle in the second episode. When he failed, he was really disappointed. I used the chance to teach Abby that it's not all about winning. Not very sure whether she understood though!

There are 5 new episodes in total, each lasting ten minutes, and will be airing on CBeebies from 25th June 2012 at 3:30pm. Although there are only 5 episodes, I'm really impressed with their work. It is not easy to make stop-frame animation, where they have to rearrange the scene for every frame. The show is colourful, fun, and really gets the little ones' attention. No wonder it's such a big hit on CBeebies!

The other 3 episodes are:

Catch That Page, where Raa Raa will be trying to help Topsy to create a book for story time,
Raa Raa Gets Squeaky, where Raa Raa disappeared while helping his friends, and 
Wake Up Hufty, where everyone tries to wake Hufty up in time for the Dawn Chorus.
