We enjoy watching Nick Jr. and there are favourites that come and go. We’re always pretty excited to hear that there’s something new on and this time we were invited to the premiere of Digby Dragon which aired on Nick Jr. for the first time on the 4th of July at 4.30pm
Digby Dragon is set in the beautiful Applecross wood. It’s magical and very colourful. The series follows the story of Rigby, a young dragon, who is learning to fly. With his best friends Chips, the forgetful squirrel, fairy Fizzy Izzy and Grumpy Goblin, he goes on magical adventures meeting the folk from the Wood along the way.
The first episode was ‘Dragon Day’.
Of course to celebrate the launch, there was a host of celebrities invited – Danielle Lloyd, Nicola McLean, Konnie Huq, Ampika Pickston, Samantha Simmonds, Brendan Cole, Alex Weaver, Sophie Blake, Adele Silva, Lucy Speed, Jasmine Harman, Mark Moraghan, Nicky Hambleton-Jones, Jason Bradbury and Lance Sergeant Johnson Beharry attended with their families.
The Barbican Conservatory was transformed into a magical forest with an appearance from the star himself – Digby!
Did you watch the premiere? The show airs on weekdays at 4.30 pm. We watched it both yesterday and today and we loved it.
I like how the relationships of the friends are approached and this is exactly what is needed for pre-school children.
Somehow children love dragons, even if their fearful. But Digby being so adorable AND a dragon is bound to be a huge hit.
