Welcome to the world of Mike the Knight

by Leanne

by Susan, editor and reviewer

I'm not going to lie; my kids love TV. Sure, we love playing outside together, and building with blocks, but they are also big fans of the TV.  When I was first pregnant, visions of sharing princess movies with my kids danced in my head. So far, I have boys. Boys who are not interested in princesses. Thank goodness for Mike the Knight! 

When we first discovered Mike and his friends in Glendragon, I was very happy. It's a very vibrant show that really teaches kids about problem solving, being a good friend, and doing the right thing! "Be a knight; do it right!" is always the end motto – and the one most repeated by my 3 year old.

As a parent, I really appreciate the positive message the show teaches, including some deeper things like equality, accepting all people (or trolls or Vikings) for who they are.  Mike, his horse Galahad, and his two dragon friends Sparkie and Squirt have many adventures, and work together to help Mike find the knightly way to handle every situation; including getting along with his little sister Evie!

So, naturally, when our package arrived for review full of Mike the Knight goodies, the kids were excited!  "MIKE THE KNIGHT!!!" was the triumphant yell from my oldest as I pulled out each item; the first being the very new Mike the Knight – Knight in Training DVD. The new DVD launch of Mike the Knight also coincides with a majestic array of knightly toys from Fisher-Price, as well as a new line of books from Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing. 


Sword and Shield
We got to play with the Fisher-Price Sword and Shield toy, which were excellent companions when watching the show! My three year old attempted to re-enact every scene right along with Mike, and his little brother was playing along right with him!


Mike the Knight in training
I was told that knights do not stand still for pictures.

The coloring book was equally fun! Since the show is so bright and colorful, it's easy for kids to remember the colors of their favorite characters and color them in.  My oldest was pretty fascinated by the nearly life-size poster of Mike that came in the "Welcome to Mike's World" coloring book!

Of course we have already watched the 6 adorable episodes on the DVD a few times; my favorite (yes, I have a favorite) is when Mike learns that his little sister might not enjoy the type of birthday party he would like.  The kids love the fun and dynamic characters, and I love the nod to the King Arthur tales I had to read in college! We still haven't yet had time to play the matching game that comes with the DVD, or to watch the music videos, but I'm sure we will soon!

Who needs princesses anyway!?Mike-the-knight

My son loves this show. He wants to watch it every day and is very upset that it’s not available ‘on demand’. He’s got an active imagination and I can only imagine what adventures he’d create with his knightly accessories. Winning this prize pack would make the 4 year old ridiculously happy.

Janet W. June 18, 2013 - 7:26 am

I’d love to win because my grandson is a big Mike the Knight fan and reads his Mike the Knight book every single night before bed. He would love to play with the sword and shield!
