The Adventures of Mouse and Mole: Review & Giveaway

Congrats to winner, Tracie! Thanks to all who entered.

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

adventures of mouse and moleI remember the days of TV when my girls were little. I loved many of the shows they watched — most were gentle, sweet programs that I think I enjoyed as much as the kids did.

In the tradition of Frog and Toad and Little Bear, The Adventures of Mouse and Mole is quaint and wonderful. I was really glad to be exposed to these characters thanks to this review. I’d never heard of them before, but I love them now. What do I love?

  • Mouse and Mole are British — complete with accents and mannerisms. The setting of these short and sweet (each is 5 minutes) episodes is their English cottage.
  • The music is wonderful and understated — a bassoon, a clarinet, and a harp. Sounds a bit odd I know, but it works. I like it. A lot. (listen to a little)
  • I love the characters of Mouse and Mole. Mouse is very thoughtful and even philosophical (feeling sad over all the stones on a beach and contemplating that a single one doesn’t matter, so does he matter, either?!). Mole is the cheerier, comic-relief character that is the lighthearted friend we’d each enjoy. None of the loud, in-your-face, sarcastic characters so often seen in US animated movies these days.

There are two volumes of these adventures, each containing 9 5-minute episodes. If my kids were little, I’d buy these in a heartbeat. They’d also be great for grandkids, birthday party gifts, etc. “Perfect stuff for small children,” says Britain’s Daily Mail, and I’d have to agree.

I’m thrilled to be able to give away a DVD of Mouse and Mole to one Girls in White Dresses reader. Enter using the rafflecopter below by March 5, and I’ll choose a random winner March 6.
