Spud opens her birthday presents to discover a shirt, trousers and a jumper and she's not happy. Farley only speaks French and so doesn't understand. When the problem is explained to him with the help of Soda's translating cap, he sets about proving that clothes can be fun. In the antics that follow - usually at Soda's expense, Spud is convinced and starts to enjoy her birthday.
Can be used to reinforce some vocabulary for birthday celebrations (happy birthday, presents, candles, birthday cake) and for clothing (jumper, shirt, trousers). Simple size words are also used (small, big) as well as "I'm wearing...", "she's wearing..." and "he's wearing..." While the 'translating cap' is blinking, there's an opportunity for children to repeat the words or phrases.
