We were really lucky to be sent a copy of Mike the Knight: Knight in Training DVD to review.
Mike the Knight is a sweet new series for Pre-schoolers and comes from the producers of Fireman Sam, Thomas & Friends and Bob the Builder.
Mike is a lovely little Knight - in training and lives in the medieval kingdom of Glendragon and the DVD follows him through five exciting adventures to help, serve and protect Glendragon.
Mike the Knight and the Scary Dragons
When Mike’s dragons try to act scary, Sparkie is better at it – but Mike doesn’t notice how upset this makes Squirt. When a forgotten Squirt gets stuck up the tower, Mike learns not to favour one of his friends over the other.
Evie’s Birthday Present
Mike thinks the perfect birthday surprise for Evie is a knightly cake – but, trying to keep the surprise, he won’t let her join his mission. In the end, he learns that letting her do what she wants is a much better birthday gift!
The Fluttering Favour
Mike and Evie battle to win a knightly favour. But, trying to outdo each other doing good deeds for the Blacksmith, they just ruin things for him! It turns out that working together is a much better way to win a Queen’s favour!
Trollee comes for a sleepover but when Mike discovers that guests are treated differently, he feels that things aren’t fair. It’s only when Trollee leaves, upset, that Mike learns why guests should always be made to feel special.
Mike is so sure he can find his way back from the end of the kingdom that he has all the signs taken down. But that just gets everyone else lost! Mike has to learn to think of others instead of just thinking of himself.
Bonus Features includes the songs from the episodes and printable lyrics sheets.
Mike is joined in each mission by two dragons Sparkie and Squirt, his horse Galahad, and his little wizard sister Evie.
Listen out for the exclusive ditty "huzzah for Glendragon" which pops up quite a bit :)

My little boy loves sparkie and squirt the two dragons and made me watch the "scary dragon" episode several times before we were allowed to move on to the the other episodes!
There are a few preschool cartoons that I also like to watch too and this is one of them, It's also a good one to allow conversation too - Blake likes to chat about what he's watching and then play out what he's just seen.
We have a Rody inflatable horse which has currently been renamed Galahad after Mike the Knight's adorable little horse!
