That Star Wars / Bing Bunny from Cbeebies cross over you never knew you wanted…
As I was sat waiting for a doctor type person the other day I came to a realisation.The only offline games I had on my phone were, CBeebies playtime, CBeebies Storytime, oh and Bing Bakes.
(PokemonGo doesn’t count as the reception was next to none).
I decided to fix this by installing this innocent little game.
This is not a drill. There is a new Bing App for your phone!
This isn’t a Bing app which you will not want to use for web searches, but may be useful to bargain with for another few minutes in Bed.
If your Little One is a fan of Bing Bunny on CBeebies, bare this in mind.
I’ve not had the chance to try the Little One out on this yet, but as she is a Dan of “Bing and Flop”, I’m expecting a positive welcome to less space being available on my phone for photos.
Over the last seven days it feels almost everyone is resigning their jobs. It started with a Prime Minister, and now the England Manager job is vacant.
This led me to wonder (possibly in a fit of post EU Referendum result depression) Who, in the world of cbeebies, should be the next England Manager?
The Voice from Sarah and Duck
Lets look at “The Voice” from Sarah and Duck. Is he is a parent figure? Is he the voice of a shared consciousness between the characters? Either way, he seems to be a respected and possibly knowledgeable figure in their lives.
Sadly due to his only feature being a floating voice, he wouldn’t be liked by any media outlet (except possibly radio). Therefore he is out of the running for England Manager.
He is the key figure in a crowd of various strange, amusing, and talented individuals. He is the one that appears to hold them all together, to the point that he is the last one asleep at night.
Sadly his lack of ability to talk could be unfortunate, but some may see that as an advantage.
But some may argue he should be the next Prime Minister.
Charlie and Lola
How about some sort of joint position? Charlie would be the sensible one that talks to the press… the players… other managers… everyone.
Lola would be the one that comes up with the tactics.
Sid and Rebecca from Lets Play!
Every week, Sid or Rebecca takes on a new job, and seem to do that job really well. These jobs seem to range from Nursing to being a Rock Star. Whatever it is they do, they seem to do it well. Therefore I would argue for another joint position, with both Sid and Rebecca in charge.
They pretend to do everything else well, I’m sure they can both pretend to be the England Manager.
Any other ideas to add?
I’m being a bad parent, and letting the Little One watch cbeebies programs on iPlayer while she eats her tea… and the “Twirlywoos” have just finished…
LO: “I’d like another one”
Me: “Which one would you like on”
LO: Walks to @BBCiPlayer screen and points. “That 1”
LO: “Which one is it”
Me: “The one you asked for”
LO: “Well done!!!”
Me: To busy trying to work out if I was just patronised by a 3 year old or not, to say anything.
*Not really a toddler anymore… but anyway…
Once the Little One spots Topsy and Tim is now in the CBeebies Playtime app, I’m never going to get my phone back.
Are you? Is your little one a fan of Cbeebies? Is Cbeebies your favourite way of getting a little bit of peace during the day? Do you catch yourself enjoying Cbeebies a bit too much? Do you feel you know the Bing episodes a bit too much? Here are 10 Ways You Can Tell You’ve Watched Too Much Cbeebies!
- You were disappointed when you found out Topsy and Tim weren’t twins.
- Quoting kid shows to people who have no idea what you’re on about.
- You understand the links between Tree Fu Tom and Doctor Who.
- When loading up episodes on the DVR / iPlayer, you catch yourself knowing as much about the episodes as your kid does.
- Thinking someone you see in public looks like Mr Bloom.
- Multiple theme tunes stick in your head.
- You wonder if Captain Jacks Boat, is a unwritten episode of Doctor Who.
- Somehow, you caught yourself looking forward to that Mr Tumble Live they did…
- You cant help but wonder about the change in hair styles between Katie presenting “I Can Cook”, and the linking sections between shows.
- You take into account the names on Cbeebies when choosing future kids names. ( EG You avoid Tom, because of Tree Fu Tom – Topsy and Tim are taken – Bing is well out)
Are there any ways you can add?
As the CBeebies Facebook page seems to be dropping a few teasers of the new Clangers series, I figured that was an excuse to randomly post their “first new” appearance, which happened during the CBeebies Stargazing ‘Eclipse of the Sun’ episode.
Its been confirmed on the Sarah and Duck Facebook page that there are new episodes coming:
Get those DVRs ready…
I saw the above mentioned on the Bing Bunny Facebook page (yes I’ve liked it), and I have to admit. It has given me hope for the future. Not because its answered any vast questions of my life or my relationships, but because it means I may not have to watch that silly episode about hiding as much as normal!
Yes, Those are clips of episodes you have not seen yet.
From the looks of my Youview program guide, the new episodes of Bing start from Monday 27th April on Cbeebies.
