Olive the Ostrich Review

Get ready for imagination and adventure as Olive the Ostrich comes to Nick Jr.
  • Launching on Monday 5th September and shown every weekday
  • Featuring artwork from schools across the UK in each episode
From the 5th September pre-schoolers can watch Olive the Ostrich, Nick Jr.’s newest animated show, every weekday at 8.15am and 6.30pm.
Olive is an ostrich with a huge heart and a big imagination. When she buries her head in the sand she goes on fantastical adventures, popping up somewhere new in every episode. She is friendly, enthusiastic and loves to solve problems wherever she goes.
Narrated by Rolf Harris, each episode of Olive the Ostrich features characters, props and backgrounds created by children aged 6 to 9 years. Selected schools from across the UK hosted workshops to inspire creativity and develop storytelling skills. Pupils learnt about the film making process and created artwork which was used in the finished episodes, after being brought to life by the show’s animators.
Olive the Ostrich is created in partnership with The Prince’s Foundation for Children and the Arts. 
Olive the Ostrich premieres Monday 5th September at 8.15am…
…only on Nick Jr. (Sky 615, Virgin 715 and TalkTalk 318).

The lovely people over at Rock and Roll Babyworld sent my girls 2 episode from the new Nick jnr show that started early Sept. 
My girls love kids tv as much as the next kid but oh how they laughed when they watched this!! A lot of it i think was lost on my younger two, i think the roll on the floor laugher from my 7 year old was what they found so infectious but i haven't seen her watch an animated programme were she has ever laughed so much!!
Personally i didn't have the pleasure of sitting through it (house work!!) but i got the massive thumbs up from my rabble and they are happy to recommend it to anyone!!
I did however clock the animation style, very charlie and lola, i totally love that whole 'cut out' style, where things are made from torn paper and fabric prints! 
So off ya go, get sky plusing it!! i can guarantee laughs if nothing else.
