BBC Worldwide Press Releases

The Best of the Fimbles on DVD

Fans of the Fimbles will be excited to know about the new Fimbles, The Best of DVD which is available 19 June 2006 from BBC Worldwide.


This bumper DVD contains all the best bits from the Fimbles series adding up to over three hours' running time.


It's an exciting year for the Fimbles as they are currently appearing live on stage for the first time in their very own theatre show. BBC presenter Sarah-Jane Honeywell joins them on their tour of the UK, which ends in September.


Fimbles is a preschool live action series about Fimbo, Florrie and Baby Pom and their friends in Fimbles Valley - Roly Mo, with his library full of stories, Rockit, who's just got to jump, and Bessie and Ribble!


The programme is inspired by children's natural curiosity of the world and their magical journey of discovery. Each episode sees the Fimbles getting the Fimbling Feeling, when their fingers twinkle, their topknots twitch and their noses wrinkle with excitement and their discoveries lead to a rich mix of games, songs and play .


The Best of the Fimbles DVD contains ten episodes in total: each of the main characters has two episodes dedicated to them, and the rest of the characters are featured in their own episode too.
