Tiny Pop’s popular production of Maya the Bee is coming out on DVD and digital download from 8th February 2016, just in time for half term.
Maya, is a busy little bee, ready to leave her hive and live in the meadow. The world is just too big and too fascinating to remain confined to the restricted life of the hive. But soon Maya realises that a bigger challenge beckons and that together with her friend Willy, she must return and save their hive from the greedy queen’s adviser and end the long-term hostility between bees and hornets. Join Maya and her friends, as they set off on their “un-bee-lievable” adventures.
Maya the Bee is a lovely child friendly way to discover the insect world in a series of fun adventures that take a little of the fear away from creepy crawlies and being stung by a bee. When children are cautious rather than afraid they are less likely to panic and less likely to be stung. Here at Coombe Mill we have a thriving bug home the children staying are encouraged to visit and we enjoy bug themed activity hour sessions and seeing the wildlife in our meadows. We have set up snail races and built snail homes.
Why not give Maya the Bee a chance and bring their meadow adventures into your home.
