What a delightful show this is for the toddlers. My little girl is 5 now however so getting slightly too old fot it. However we watched it for a few years when it was occasionally on TV and I must say what a quality offering it is for the kids.
The program is about a canal boat called The Old Rag Doll, it's owner and his two rag dolls, Rosie and Jim. There's a duck in there somewhere too. As the program starts, the guy on the boat is writing a story (he tells us he is a children's story writer and illustrater - probably is in real life, hence Rosie and Jim books) for today.
The rest of the show is about what happens in the story. He goes and does things / visits places and then writes them up in his story book.
In between all this Rosie and Jim come to life and follow him on his travels. He never sees them mind, which is strange, and they always manage to get back to the boat and flopped into the chair again before he gets back.
The stories are just right for infants, the scenery's great and the pupets are delightful. Top marks
