When it’s pouring down with rain outside, the little ones can often become a little restless. Unlike the summer months, when going to the park for a picnic or the beach for a swim is at the top of our ‘to do’ lists, the winter months can be a little dismal. Thankfully, Ed the Sofa Bear, Virgin Media’s newest recruit, has an antidote to these endless dull days – hibernation!
So much choice
After watching him in action, you’ll soon come to realise that Virgin Media have a huge range of movies, documentaries, cartoons and box sets available, many of which are suited to the entire family. Head on over to Virgin Media and watch him in action…or on the sofa. He’s said to be the only bear that makes hibernating look like an art form!
Virgin Media’s new Sofa Watch videos reveal a little more about our new favourite furry friend. Watch him behind the scenes, doing what he does best and learn his views on the latest nature documentaries and zombies. He also has a friend who goes by the name of Ally the Night Owl and she’s just as enthusiastic about watching the latest TV offerings as Ed is.
A night in with Ed the Sofa Bear and Ally the Night Owl
Instead of heading out for dinner, why not treat the little ones to a top-notch night in? Making popcorn and listening to kernels pop in the pan is a popular pastime with both kids and adults. Snuggling up on the sofa or hibernating (just like Ed) is a great way to get rid of the winter blues. Plus, with so many movies, dramas and documentaries to choose from, you’ll never tire of your time in front of the box.
An educational experience
Asides from catching up on missed episodes of your favourite TV programmes and watching classics time and time again, TV can also be extremely educational, just ask Ed the Sofa Bear and Ally the Owl. In one video, Ed is happy to share his views on the latest nature documentaries, whilst Ally catches up with some old friends. Learning about nature through documentaries is a great way to teach the kids about a variety of animals and their habitats – especially if you live far away from the safaris of South Africa.
