It was available FOC from the NAS a couple of years ago. Ds (already 7 but with language at aprox 3 year old level) didn't like it - I think he was already a little old for it and found it a bit slow visually. Oddly he hates Thomas as well so its similarity may have been the trouble. They use it at Ds special school to teach facial recognition of emotions. Gave them our copy for their littlies so cant pass on to you Tclanger.

Do they have a copy in the (county sn section) library - or can you borrow from someone else?

I can pass on a copy to you T-clanger (will have to check that disc is actually in box). bought one on Ebay for DS2 but he wasn't that into it, he was never that into thomas either but he did watch the 1934 King Kong film every day for about six months when he was 3! so he had his own obbsession. i think it is quite good but DH is an animator for a living so my kids have probably seen more cartoons than they have had hot dinners and are not easily impressed! I have never had cause to investigate how you pass on real life addresses etc. safely on mumsnet, could someone enlighten me?
PS. I think good old Mister Men books are good for teaching kids about emotions and characteristics.

We had a copy...somewhere... but ds was a bit old for it, he was 6 or 7 at the time and like some of the others he's never been into Thomas either. I don't think I'd pay £30 for it though.

I've got a copy that I don't need anymore if anyone wants it.
