The Hive: Buzzbee to the Rescue DVD – Giveaway and Review

The Hive: Buzzbee to the Rescue is one of Abbey Kids Media’s latest  releases, an animated series that follows the fortunes of the extremely cute Bee family, who live together with friends and relations in The Hive.

Pappa Bee, Mamma Bee, Buzzbee, Rubee and little Babee are really just like any other family, except they are tiny, stripey and can fly!

Having never heard of The Hive before, I was eager to sit down and watch the DVD with my children.  My immediate thoughts were that the images were bold and bright, sure to catch a little ones eye.  Almost 6 year old Miss M wasn’t too fussed on this but 3 yr old Mister B was glued to it and wanted it on again and again.  I think this is a really cute animation about a family of bees and their day to day shenanigans.  Mister B found the storylines really enjoyable and something he was happy to watch multiple times (subject to me allowing him!).  We give The Hive a  thumbs up for it’s cute cartoons and fun adventures.

The Hive DVD is released on 7th October 2013 and can be purchased from all good DVD stockists.

For more information can be found on the Abbey Home Media.
