Are Giggle & Hoot’s famous ‘five steps to bed’ part of your child’s bedtime routine? Get ready to add an extra quick ‘five minutes before bed’ to your daily schedule with these bitesize 5-minute stories from the adventurous Owl Pals:

Owl Pals DVD

The brand new DVD Hoot Hoot Go: Owl Pals contains 13 fun episodes featuring Australia’s favourite owls Hoot, Hootabelle, their orange buddy Hootly and a range of other interesting characters from the Land of Giggle & Hoot. Join these colourful birds and learn to cloud bounce, play Hoot & Seek, look for Hootballs, sing with Hootaluna, find the missing Gigglebug and more.

In The Perfect Cubby House the loveable Owl Pals are getting together for a special tea party. Unfortunately none of the three cubbies is suitable for the fun gathering: It’s either too small, doesn’t have any pillows or lacks yummy snacks for the three friends. Of course they don’t give up that easily, they join forces and build a big new cubby house together. Cup of tea anyone?

When Hoot is getting ready for The Piratey Party to celebrate Pirate Mini Hootbeard’s birthday he discovers that his pirate costume is way too small. He is worried he has to miss out on all the fun, but thankfully his friends Hootabelle and Hootly come to the rescue. They all share some parts of their outfits so the three pirates can enjoy the party together.

‘Hoot Hoot Go: Owl Pals’ is available on DVD (RRP $19.99) at major retailers across Australia.

We’ve all seen that Jimmy Rees, better known as Jimmy Giggle from ABC4Kids duo Giggle and Hoot, knows everything about putting smiles on little faces and soon he will be able to try his tricks on his very own tiny munchkin. Together with his wife Tori he is expecting a precious bundle of their own, such lovely news! We don’t know the gender of their unborn baby yet and we haven’t seen their nursery yet either but I bet their change table will be stacked with the new Giggle and Hoot nappies, exclusive to Woolworths stores nationwide:

Giggle and Hoot BabyLove nappiesCreated by the nappy experts at BabyLove the new range combines the signature Dri Wave design we’ve all come to love with a fun Giggle and Hoot gift. The unisex nappies are designed to be flexible, stretchy and reliable so they offer ultimate protection for active babies who love to roll, play, crawl, toddle and walk. The Dri Wave lining absorbs quickly so that your baby’s skin stays dry, reducing the risk of irritated skin and nappy rash.

We are regular users of BabyLove Dri Wave nappies and have always been very pleased with their performance. I’ve tried them on several of my children at different ages, weights and body shapes and during the day as well as overnight without any accidents, that’s the tick of approval for me! BabyLove is very proud of their design and understands you may want to try before you buy, so if you are new to BabyLove you can request a free sample here.

Giggle and Hoot Frame Tray PuzzleEach pack of Giggle and Hoot BabyLove nappies sold through Woolworths stores includes a free 12-piece Giggle and Hoot frame tray puzzle. There are 4 different puzzle designs to collect and they’re a great activity for little explorers to practise their fine motor skills. The recommended age for the puzzles is 3+ which made them a perfect gift for our miss 4 but our miss 1 also tried her best at fitting the strong cardboard pieces on the tray (without success).

Giggle and Hoot BabyLove nappies ($29, all sizes) are available in 5 different sizes: Infant (3-8kg, 96 pcs), Crawler (6-11 kg, 93 pcs), Toddler (9-14 kg, 81 pcs), Walker (12-17kg, 72 pcs) and Junior (15-25kg, 66 pcs) so from birth to toilet training, they’ve go you covered.

You can find the Giggle and Hoot BabyLove range in the nappy aisle of Woolworths supermarkets across Australia, to locate your local Woolworths store visit www.woolworths.com.au.

Play School Jemima DollTo celebrate the release of the new Giggle and Hoot BabyLove nappy range we’ve got a lovely prize pack to give away to one lucky Hip Little One reader, it could be you! If your little one is a big Play School fan this prize is sure to be a big hit. For your chance to win a box of Giggle and Hoot BabyLove nappies (RRP $29) in your preferred size and a gorgeous Play School Jemima Bedtime Plush Toy (RRP $26.95) enter our giveaway below.

As a mum of four children (5 years and under) it won’t come as a surprise to you that we are big ABC4Kids fans. We are quite careful with watch our kids watch on TV and purposely don’t watch any ‘grown-up’ TV when the children are awake but ABC4Kids gets the (hard earn) tick of approval. Our little tribe loves Play School, the kids can’t get enough of Peppa Pig and they all think Giggle & Hoot are the perfect after dinner entertainment.

Giggle & Hoot DVDThe only problem with ordinary television is that you are not in charge of the TV schedule and we all know how difficult it can be to explain to a stubborn little 3-year old that you can’t order what comes on TV (No mummy can not do everything!). If Giggle & Hoot, Play School and Bananas in Pyjamas are in high demand in your house you will love the new Giggle & Hoot present Gigglepaws and Pals DVD (RRP $19.99).

This brand new DVD features cheeky cat Gigglepaws who loves going on adventures with Giggle & Hoot as well as lots of fun episodes of your favourite ABC4Kids shows. With a total playing time of 100 minutes this DVD will keep little ones entertained for ages and you can easily break it up in smaller sections so you can get dinner in the oven, hang up a load of washing or just make yourself a coffee.

Giggle & Hoot Wooden Play Room

My kids have often asked me if they could visit Jimmy Giggle’s house one day and I have to admit it looks like a fun place to live. If your children are keen to have a peek at Jimmy’s place too they are sure to love the Giggle & Hoot Wooden Play Room (RRP $19.99, ages 3+). This lovely wooden play set brings the setting of your child’s favourite show to your very own living room, grandma’s house, the doctor’s waiting room or anywhere else you want to take it (just make sure you keep the box to store all the pieces together).

Giggle & Hoot

The set consists of 9 wooden pieces including Jimmy, Hoot and Hootabelle, some furniture and their favourite toys Mini-Hoot and Giggleosaurus. I was absolutely amazed by the stories the kids came up with while playing with the Wooden Play Room and how good they are at imitating the voices, it’s a great toy for imaginative play. There are enough pieces for siblings to share which encourages them to play together and act out different characters.
