We don't watch television so haven't seen these lovely "Pop-up; Imagine with Rufus" shorts before. The whole family really enjoyed watching these.

The segments are between 2- 2/12 minutes long with a very catchy beginning and end tune to each segment which is stuck in my head now.

The segments do blend into each other quickly so you don't notice that they are as short as they are and easily watch quite a lot.

Rufus, who is a hand puppet, has a fantastic imagination and once he is in his box he pretty quickly goes off on a little adventure. The animations/set props are pretty cool and a lot of the set is using things about the house i.e buttons, cotton wool, broccoli, toilet rolls, cardboard, paint etc. You can then easily start to create some of your own props for imagination filled adventures in your own living room.

I liked that Rufus has little moral dilemmas, i.e does he tell Edmund and Hilary that he accidentally knocked their birthday custard off his gondola and it is all smashed up at the bottom of the mountain? Well he fesses up and realises that it feels good to tell the truth and accidents are okay.

I love the New Zealandness about this and it does feel good to be watching some home grown New Zealand TV. Miss Five, Miss Four and Miss One were all completely captivated by this and have watched it over and over again. I recommend this for anywhere from about 18 months and up (yes i know they shouldn't watch TV til at least two years...). It is aimed at the 3-5 years range I should think and is a great way to get some good value based messages across whilst delving into fantastic imaginary adventures.

Overall a top ten!!
