The Little Explorer, upon finding himself face to face with the ice cream from Orange Elephant, decided to jump straight in.
“There’s no such thing as the Gruffalo” he said.
But Lego dad had been wrong before.
When you leave the house. the difference between having kids and not having kids… or kid…
The above is a simplified version of what really happens.
I was a little confused after the above conversation!
Not only did the little one REALLY turn down cake, she turned down cake – after I resorted to the bribery approach to parenting – in front of a load of other parents.
Two minutes later she somehow managed to get hold of my far nicer cake.
It all started with a random moment the other day when, Martin from Father Lee Moments wondered on The Dad Network Bloggers group, “I’ve often thought who from the world of cbeebies I would like on my team in the case of a zombie apocalypse!”
Now with the shops filled with Halloween monsters, and memories of 28 days later playing over (and over) in my mind, my imagination may have kicked in.
Therefore, here is my look at what CBeebies characters*, I would include in my team during a zombie apocalypse.
Duck. (From Sarah and Duck) Back when Sarah and Duck came to our screens, we joined them for a trip to the zoo, which ended with Sarah being surrounded by hungry penguins. Therefore, I would suggest Duck would be a handy companion for anyone surrounded by hungry zombies, he can swoop in, pick you up and fly you to safe ground.
Gem from Swashbuckle. She can apply the pirate dealing skills to the zombie apocalypse. I bet she’ll either be handy in a fight, or at least stealing jewels that can be used to bargain for food, weapons, or petrol at some point.
Tree Fu Tom, from the action packed CBeebies show. Tree Fu Tom. He is one who can channel Big World Magic to rescue his friends, and solve all sorts of issues. He just needs someone to send him the big world magic.
Maddie Moate from “Do You Know?” – Every team needs someone to be the “brains” of the outfit. Maddie Moate from the show “Did You Know?” would be the brains of the CBeebies zombie team. As long as she had the special cameras on hand to show us how it all works!
Peter Rabbit. Picture it. You are surrounded. Zombie hoards are closing in all around you. These aren’t slow slow zombies either, these are crap inducing, rage fuelled zombies that run faster then light. You don’t need to be fast, you need to be proper fast! You don’t just need to be Peter Rabbit fast, you need the updated cbeebies Peter Rabbit fast! Plus I imagine him being pretty handy in finding food.
Well that’s my team to get me through the zombie apocalypse. What do you reckon my chances are?

Who would you include?
*Obviously I may have played a little fast and loose with the term “character” at points.
