Peg + Cat follows the adorable, spirited Peg and her sidekick Cat as they embark on adventures, solve problems together, and learn foundational math concepts and skills. In each 11 minute episode, Peg and Cat are challenged by A REALLY BIG PROBLEM and they must find a way out of this messy funny crisis without totally freaking out! That’s what life is like for Peg and Cat, the heroes of this animated math-based series for children ages 3-5 years old.
Peg+Cat are joining the Toddler Time family this January, and we are delighted to have the following three episodes for their Toddler Time debut at Picturehouse:
The Chicken Problem, The Farm.
Peg and Cat have to get 100 chickens back in the coop before the farmer sees.
The Pirate Problem, Pirate Island.
Peg and Cat have to show a group of very hungry Pirates how to share tropical fruit fairly.
The Dinosaur Problem, Prehistoric Valley.
When Peg and Cat get lost riding dinosaurs through a prehistoric forest, they must use a diagram to find their way to safety before the Baby T-Rex catches up to them.
We welcome the wondeful School Of Roars to the Toddler Time family this January!
Going to school for the first time is one of the biggest things you'll do in your life. You're away from home, fitting in with routines and learning so many new things ... whilst also getting along with a class full of new friends. It's exciting, but a massive change!
SCHOOL OF ROARS helps children prepare for school life by exploring a child's first year through the relationships and experiences of our mini monsters.
Because they're monsters, our little heroes go to school at night, led by teacher Miss Grizzlesniff. The class learn lessons on how to be monsters, like counting the legs on spiders in maths, how to howl at the moon in music, or making delicious Blushberry Blob Cakes in cookery. Our monsters experience life-lessons through their adventures such as caring, sharing, friendship and fun, mirroring the social and emotional behaviour and group dynamics of our audience who are starting school.
For our very first Toddler Time programme with School Of Roars, we are delighted to feature the following episodes:
Meepa meets a friendly froggy in the nature garden and decides to keep it as a pet. But she quickly learns that looking after a bouncy, croaky, hungry frog is not easy.
Wingston’s Daddy is running late and whilst all the other little monsters head home for slime shake and games with their Mummy’s and Daddy’s, a woeful Wingston helps Miss Grizzlesniff fill the goo pit… until he hears a sound coming from the dragon egg tank. Wingston’s friends won’t believe what they’ve missed.
Wufflebump and Yummble have always been best friends, but when Yummble helps Meepa draw her monster portrait in art class, the pair hit it off and start doing everything together. Wufflebump feels very left out, can Miss Grizzlesniff show him you don’t need just one best friend, you can have many!
GET WELL SOON
Miss Grizzlesniff has a bad case of the sniffles so Mr Marrow steps in to teach the class. He soon discovers how tricky teaching lots of different subjects can be and gets in an almighty muddle. With each lesson turning into a disaster, can he find his own special way to help the little monsters learn?
MONSTER BOOK DAY
It’s Monster Book Day and the monsters have dressed up as their favourite storybook characters. But Icklewoo is sad. She doesn’t like her silly, frilly Cinderella dress. Can Wufflebump come to her rescue and turn her into the stinkiest Cinderella in storyland?
Voted the nation's favourite bedtime story, the magical tale of a plucky mouse who takes a walk through the woods in search of a nut is brought to enchanting life in an all-star adaptation of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffle's bestselling book.
This beautifully animated, BAFTA-nominated treat features the vocal talents of Robbie Coltrane as The Gruffalo, Helena Bonham Carter as the narrator, Rob Brydon as the Snake and James Corden as the Mouse. Join us to take a walk in a deep, dark wood…
The adventures of a fun-loving three-year-old monkey, Tee, and first-time super-mum, Mo, as they navigate the swings and roundabouts of their life together, learning what it takes to be a son and a mum.
We're delighted to have our second Toddler Time programme of Tee And Mo. This programme will include:
After finding his old baby bonnet under the sofa, Tee and Mo remember what it was like when Tee was still a baby.
Mo can make Tee crack-up laughing with one tickle, but Tee is unable to get her to laugh in return.
Tee gets more and more frustrated as he tries to find her tickle spot.
Tee and Mo decide to have a camp out in the garden, but it seems there is always one more thing from his bedroom that Tee needs to help him fall asleep.
Mo for a morning
When Mo wakes up with a cold, who’s there to take over mum duties? Tee of course!
Tee and Mo are trying to get on with their day but Mo keeps getting calls on her mobile phone. After a while Tee gets fed up, but how can he get Mo’s attention?
