About this deal

Children will be encouraged to explore their own environment along with the Twirlywoos, and learn new things about their world each day. The episodes encourage children to think for themselves, gain confidence in perceptions of their own lives and develop their wonderful sense of inquisitiveness through each story.

The Twirlywoos’ curious nature and creative thinking skills can help children get excited about exploration and discovery, and use their creativity to figure out the world around them. Very young children are learning how to move their bodies and music is a fantastic way to inspire movement. Children learn more about things by observing how certain characteristics are similar or different (e. Great BigHoo, Toodloo, Chickedy, Chick and Peekaboo are ever curious as they enjoy their adventures in their big red boat.

Each episode of Twirlywoos is, based around one of these 'schemas', such as ‘up and down’, ‘inside and outside’. They share and they think about each other, presenting a very strong role model for the children to emulate. The sharing of tea or the giving of a gift in recognition of friendship helps the children to define their behaviours toward their own friends. Twirlywoos helps children to understand the notion of cause and effect throughout the narrative - and often in a very funny way, which itself helps cement an understanding the concept. Each episode was, developed in collaboration with Professor Cathy Nutbrown, an early year’s educational expert, Head of the School of Education at the University of Sheffield.

Twirlywoos has a very strong spatial relations component, with Great BigHoo, Toodloo, Chickedy, and Chick learning about up, down, over, underneath, around, through, and various other relational concepts throughout their explorations.These patterns of play are examples of schemas, behaviours that children go through when they are exploring the world and trying to find out how things work. The Twirlywoos demonstrate these concepts in a clear, repetitive way, which will help the child at home recognize these concepts and terms as they interact with their surrounding environment. Whether they travel to the real world or on their big red boat they are always discovering something new and exciting with help from their friends who come to visit them. The Twirlywoos are constantly curious and in awe of the world around them, and (through gestures and sounds) pose questions that lead to investigations.
