Review of Olive The Ostrich

Yusuf watching Olive The Ostrich








Good Morning,

Thanks to the lovely Louise @ Rock and Roll Baby World and Nick Jr we were sent a Olive The Ostrich Pack.  The pack contained a DVD with 2 episodes and stickers and a poster.  Nick Jr is one of the main channels that its on in our household.   For a couple of weeks Yusuf has seen the adverts for Olive The Ostrich and asking “When is it on?!”


Olive the Ostrich is a lovely programme with Rolf Harris as the Narrator.  When Olive buries her head in the sand she goes on adventures, somewhere new in each episode.  It also features artwork from schools across the UK at the end of each episode which we all noticed.

Yusuf enjoyed the programme and instantly recognised Olive when we showed him the pack!  When he watched he did not move much, (which is quite a big thing for him!) I think it helps that the the programme is not too long so the child does not get distracted if it goes on for too long.  Mummy forgot the poster at work as she could not fit it in her bag!!!  We will show it to him tonight Mummy is sure he will like it.  The stickers went on our fridge straight away!

There is a small microsite which has an Olive The Ostrich section and the kids can create pictures on there.  The link is

Olive The Ostrich is on weekdays at 8:15 am and 6:30 pm only on Nick Jr. (Sky 615, Virgin 715 and TalkTalk 318)

Disclosue:  I received a Olive The Ostrich Pack, which contained a DVD, stickers and poster.  This is not a paid post.  This is purely the opinions of myself and the family.
