If you have a young child like us, you will certainly have heard about Boj, a new children’s animated TV series on CBeebies for 3-6 year olds. It follows the life of the main character Boj, who is a bilby – an endangered big-eared bandicoot from the Australian Outback.
Boj has arrived in Giggly Park with his musical parents Mimi and Pops (voiced by pop icon Jason Donovan) where they now live in their simple, quirky underground burrow at the heart of their new neighbourhood.
Little man has been playing with the newly released Boj apps, and he has been having lots of fun with the interactive appbooks: The Collector Appbook, Musical Mayhem Appbook and Hoppy Birthday Appbook.
In The Collector app, Boj finds out all about collections and what they mean to him and his buddies. Join Boj around Giggly Park as he collects, builds and generally makes stuff from other stuff.
In Musical Mayhem Appbook, Mr Cloppity’s Cloppity Concerto is being performed on stage at the Giggly Park and everyone will be there! Help Boj make some boj-a-boom homemade instruments and clap along with the sing-along.
The story of Hoppy Birthday Appbook is based on the Hoppy Birthday episode in the Boj TV show. It’s Rupa’s birthday and Boj has helped Mia find something perfect to give her. But Gavin has brought a HUGE present for Rupa! How could Mia’s possibly match up?
Join Boj has he builds, collects and makes stuff from other stuff! This 24 page interactive appbook is read by Jason Donavon and has hidden object games, bespoke never-before-seen animations and a sing-along to end the story!
Boj is a celebration of childhood. Boj shows us all how to loosen up, be free-thinking, creative, pro-active and resourceful – and ultimately how to put aside our differences and all get along!
Boj is full of creativity and messy fun. With his improvised Boj-a-boom ideas Boj can solve everybody’s problems, and when Bojgets Boj-ing he builds friendships and bonds the whole community together. The series has inspired kids to get ‘Boj-ing’ at home too, where they are ‘upcycling’ – creating stuff from other stuff – in true Boj-style.
Boj is on CBeebies at 5:30pm on Monday to Friday. For more information, please check http://boj.tv/
