Hello!

My name is Lily-Sue, but my mummy calls me Munchkin (or 'Munch' for short!) I am 8 years old, and this is where my mummy will help me write all about all the fun things we do together. I hope you enjoy reading about the adventures of my mummy and me, Munchkin, with the occasional appearance from the siblings - Beastie and Plumlet.

Take a Holiday on Ice with Masha and the Bear *Giveaway*

Will Masha ever stop getting into mischief ...?
Are your children fans of the lovable characters Masha and Bear? 
I believe any child that watches their antics would struggle not to fall in love with them! They're funny, they're full of adventure and they have the kind of relationship you can't help smiling at! 


Masha and her cuddly friend Bear first graced TV screens back in 2009, when their very first episode 'How They Met' aired. The setting of this animated series is Moscow, Russia,which is from where the characters originate. Each episode focuses on the mischievous little girl, Masha, and her fatherly figure friend, Bear, who spends his time trying to save her from trouble! Since its first episode, the show has been translated into 25 different languages, broadcast in 100 different countries and become a feature on the much loved Netflix and a regular on children's channel Cartoonito.


This is Masha.
Masha has been based on a real person. The show's artistic director, Oleg Kuzovkov, noticed a confident, friendly little girl when he was on holiday. This little girl would quite happily approach complete strangers on the beach to join in their games, and she inspired the creation of Masha because of her outgoing and intelligent nature.


This is Bear. Bear is big, cuddly and brave, always running here and there to extinguish whatever disaster Masha has managed to ignite. However, he loves Masha very much, even if she is forever putting him in the line of danger with her crazy antics. He is a retired circus performer which can often come in handy with the stunts he needs to execute in a bid to keep Masha safe! Although Bear has no verbal dialogue, it is very easy to understand what he is trying to say through his dramatic actions!




Masha is a Russian girl who lives in the forest with her pig, goat and dog. All the animals in the forest are afraid of her as she forces them to play with her. One morning, Masha sees a butterfly and inadvertently follows it inside the home of a bear who has gone fishing. While playing there, she makes a big mess. When the Bear returns, he sees the disaster caused by Masha. The Bear tries to get rid of Masha, but he is unsuccessful, and he and Masha become friends.


 The latest DVD offering from the favourite duo, their third collection, is called Holiday on Ice and it is absolutely delightful! 70 minutes of magical madness and mayhem, we are treated to a special seasonal collection of lovely episodes. Eager to learn how to skate like a pro, Masha persuades Bear to teach her. With a bit of effort, Masha entices Bear down to the frozen lake where they meet with Lady Bear. Hopeefully Bear and Lady Bear can help Masha learn the steps ... but at what cost?!



This collection includes a number of feel good episodes, including;

Holiday on Ice 
One, Two, Three! 
Light the Christmas Tree 
Picture Perfect 
Tracks of Unknown Animals 
Watch Out!
First Day of School 
No Tresspassing

Good Luck!
