Bing is a groundbreaking television series for CBeebies that celebrates the noisy, joyful, messy reality of life when you’re a preschooler. Bing stories are small but they are full of the everyday dramas that all young children and the grownups in their lives will recognise.
Bing is 3 years old and, like all 3 year olds, is energetic, playful and engaged with the world around him. As he encounters new experiences, Bing’s combination of enthusiasm and inexperience can sometimes lead to small disasters! Just as Bing thinks he’s got the hang of something new, life swings back and knocks him over. However with a bit of help from Flop, his constant companion and carer, things work out okay in the end. As Flop always says: “Never mind Bing, it’s no big thing.”
Children will love joining Bing, his friends Sula and Pando and his cousins Coco and Charlie as they encounter the big stories in the tiniest moments of preschool life – whether it’s playing with shadows, making smoothies or finding a frog in the garden.
For grownups, Bing is about relating to a very young child as he or she quickly grows and develops, and about dealing with the range of new – and often challenging – behaviors that come with this development. Bing aims to explore these situations in a way that both celebrates the realities of loving a preschool child and offers up strategies for dealing with the trickier moments.
