A few months ago I wrote about how Lily was getting obsessed with Peppa pig. She still really loves Peppa but she has a new little obsession and that is with Bing.
If you don't know Bing he is a cute childlike bunny and has his own Tv show. The episodes all feature things that young children do, like playing games, learning new things, and also things like hurting themselves or having a accident.
I really don't mind Lily having a obsession with Bing as I don't find the character annoying and it actually does teach children quite a bit about everyday life. Flop who is Bing's carer is the one who always teaches Bing that little mistakes and accidents are actually no big thing and nothing to be upset about. He always has the answer and a way to look on the brighter side of a situation. I find that this is a really good thing for children to be learning about.
I also think all us as parents can take a message from it that not all incidents that happen with our children are a big thing. With patience and understanding just like flop has, we can teach our children to be calmer, happier and also learn the right way to behave.
Lily now owns 3 Bing DVD's and we have one in-particular in our Xbox in the bedroom ready to play. Some mornings I don't get a nice morning greeting with Lily saying Mummy... instead I get her pointing to her bedroom door shouting "Bing Bing" (yes she has learn that word) and she will be wanting to come into my room to watch it. So it has become a little routine that we watch a few episodes in the morning.
Whenever we watch any episodes she is glued to the Tv. She loves to dance to the episode where they play musical statues and when they dance and sing the banana song with Brenda the blender. (omg I know way to much about this show)
She also owns some Bing books that are in her little book box in the living room where she can help herself to them. Bing is often brought to me and she gets super excited when we read them and will point to Bing on the cover and shout his name.
She does like him though and will give him cups of tea and cake.
So if you haven't watched this before then you really need to but be warned, you may have to watch it each day.
Do you have a little Bingster in the family?
What do you think to Bing?
