I've loved the Beatrix Potter stories ever since I was tiny: I had the books, the china figurines and money boxes, cuddly toys and my favourite VHS was 'The Tailor of Gloucester' which I used to watch over and over again when I was small. So I was excited to share some of her much-loved characters with Bert.
Bert cuddling his gorgeous soft Peter Rabbit
Bert was bought a gorgeous cuddly Peter Rabbit when he was born from his auntie Susie (my best friend), and he loves to get his Peter out and cuddle him every time Peter Rabbit is on CBeebies...adorable!
Peter Rabbit cuddles while he watches his new DVD!
Beatrix Potter's wonderful stories have charmed and entertained children for generations. Now fans can enjoy brand new adventures of her timeless children's classic Peter Rabbit in the first ever DVD collection of episodes from the new animated series.
Bert got really excited when I showed him the DVD - he held the case for ages, studying every detail, before rooting around in his toy box to find his cuddly Peter - then he was ready to watch!
Watching Peter Rabbit - Tales of the Start of Spring, with his cuddly buddy!
Follow our hero Peter and his friends Benjamin Bunny and Lily Bobtail on their adventures as they encounter real dangers, overcome obstacles and outsmart predators, all the while finding fun and excitement in the most unexpected places.
With a taste for radishes and a thirst for adventure Peter Rabbit is the lovable and extraordinary friend you longed to hang out with when you were a child. But when then chips are down and danger lurks, there's no better friend to have around than Peter and his boundless courage, which always sees him through. Peter has infectious enthusiasm for life and is also an irrepressible optimist. He is cool under pressure and his quick-witted mind is as nimble as his super-fast legs.
Kisses for Peter Rabbit from his mate Bert! x
