Twirlywoos LIVE! is touring the UK for the first time ever in 2019. We are massive fans of the Twirlywoos in this house and my son has watched many episodes usually with a great big smile on his face. One of my most favourite photos of him is him laughing while watching the Twirlywoos.
Who are the Twirlywoo’s
They are adorable characters and they can be seen on the BBC’s CBeebies channel. The main characters in the show are Toodloo, Great BigHoo, Chickedy and Chick plus Peekabo (today they’re learning something new). Sorry I couldn’t resist. In each episode the Twirlywoos who communicate by cute sounds learn something new. One day it could be about up and down, another day around and around.
Quote “Twirlywoos features laugh-out-loud child-centric humour which encourages preschoolers to think for themselves and gain confidence in their own perceptions of the world. Through the show, young audiences are able to reinforce their understanding as they grow and develop, becoming active and inquisitive within their own lives.
The Twirlywoos are four small, bird-like characters who are inquisitive, enthusiastic and always looking to learn something new about the world.
Ever curious, they seek adventure and fun wherever they go. Whether in the real world or on their big red boat, they love to hide, imitate and be surprised as they discover new things. The show has been developed with a commitment to watching how children interact and develop, and each episode creates spaces for preschoolers to make their own connections, which aids their learning.”
