I recorded it for DS ~ I enjoyed it smile

I really loved the fact that some of the kids working on the project were clearly won round by the idea - anything that encourages delayed gratification in our children's generation has to be a good thing!

I liked it too. I'm especially looking forward to the Lego one!

Although, Plasicine will be good too! I can almost smell it now!

The plasticine garden is amazing.

Why have I only ever seen children make brown mush and nothing even close to as good as that?!

Never saw the 1st one but will watch the lego one.

Would have preferred a more nostalgic look back at the toys he is featuring rather than how the programme actually is.

hmm that sentence doesn't make sense now does it? blush

Am really enjoying this series.

Looking forward to Lego one.IMO the best ever toy for children!

RTKangaMummy Tue 03-Nov-09 21:06:44

he has done a different prog about history of the toys like lego etc

Katisha Tue 03-Nov-09 21:10:28

I think he needs to be a little less embarrassed-looking all the time. I know it's his persona and all that but it makes him seem half-hearted somehow.

RTKangaMummy Tue 03-Nov-09 21:13:17

I think the stupid woman from RHS who said about the "real" flowers showed herself to have absolutely NO sense of humour

Hope she watched it tonight and was embarressed

RTKangaMummy Tue 03-Nov-09 21:14:18

I think James is probably quite shy and unsure of what to do and say when iyswim

MavisEnderby Tue 03-Nov-09 21:16:13

RT kANGA,Re RHS woman I said exactly the same thing to dp!

hannahsaunt Tue 03-Nov-09 21:41:34

Not just no sense of humour - no imagination - what did she mean, "no flowers" - there were hundreds of flowers just in an alternative format. I'm sure JM is right to query the rules - they just say flowers but don't specify the reality of said flowers ... quite disappointing from the RHS really.

Katisha Wed 04-Nov-09 08:29:45

Actually I thought they redeemed themselves with the plasticine gold medal which was the perfect solution!

southeastastra Wed 04-Nov-09 08:30:46

bit of a boring show though wasn't it? or just me

GuyFawkesIsMyLoveSlave Wed 04-Nov-09 08:46:02

Avada, he did a nostalgic look back at the toys he is featuring in a programme with the same title last year, which is presumably how he got the commission to do this one. It's repeated quite often on some digital channel or other.
