TV char­ac­ters a huge hit with kids

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY KIDS -

SCREAMS of de­light could be heard from Sarah’s Fam­ily Day Care in Can­non­vale last week – and for good rea­son too.

Dorothy the Di­nosaur and Pep­per Pig in the flesh – or furry cos­tumes – were there.

“It was a huge hit – so many fam­i­lies came,” Sarah’s Fam­ily Day Care ed­u­ca­tor Sarah Berry said. “We had about 20 kids.” Ms Berry said Pep­per Pig proved a popular vis­i­tor. “We had or­gan­ised Dorothy and a lot of the par­ents re­quested that we do Pep­per Pig,” she said.

“(And) the kids have been ob­sessed with Pep­per Pig.”

For the chil­dren, how­ever, the day was about more than just a visit from their tele­vi­sion favourites.

“All the kids came dressed up,” Ms Berry said.

“Some were Spi­der-Man, some were pi­rates, there were princesses and there was a po­lar bear.” And of course, it’s just not a party with­out nib­blies for chil­dren and adults.

“Ev­ery par­ent brought a plate and all the kids sat around and had morn­ing tea,” Ms Berry said, adding this was also a some­thing of a so­cial event for the par­ents as well.

“It was good be­cause all the par­ents got to get to­gether and meet each other,” she said.
