Mr Yipadee and Alex Winters Easter Tour

This morning we were invited back to see Mr Yipadee and Cbeebies Alex Winters, on the Easter tour they are doing. We last saw Mr Yipadee at Christmas, which you can see here. The girls had so much fun, that we didn't hesitate to accept the offer. The show is touring the North West, and it is coming to an end, with only a few dates left. We chose our old haunt "Giddy Kidz" in Warrington, as it was our most convenient soft play area on the tour.
The tour is a big party. A Pirate and Princess party, which means the girls favourite Princess at the moment would also make an appearance.... this was a great excuse for lots of children to dress up, however, I really didn't think about it, and I think my girls were the only ones not in a costume...

We were greeted by the usual smiley face of Mr Yipadee, who got all the children participating right from the start...

After a song or two, it was time to get his partner in crime out... Alex Winters . He didn't get the memo he needed to come as a pirate, and instead came as a Princess, with a very girly "Arrr.."(attempting to be a pirate, with a little princess kick. This again had all the children laughing..

After a few more songs, and general banter with the children, the shakers came out, this really interested S, who actually started to calm down, rather then the hyper running around screeching phase...
After trying to sing the Elsa song, but getting the lyrics mixed up , Elsa from StarKidz came to the rescue. All the girls loved this moment, and after she showed them all a few arm dance moves, she sang her famous song, and she did it very well.
The Easter bunny also made an appearance, bringing enough chocolate eggs for all the children...
A few more dances, and banter, and the giggles were in full flow...

Before the end of the party, they had to get the adults involved... so a good old Hokey Cokey got all the adults up too...

At the end we were able to buy Mr Yipadee's albums. The Christmas album went down extremely well, so we were more then happy to get the latest addition. Which you can purchase from here.

The girls had a lovely morning, having a party, just because its half term, having a lot of giggles, and just being silly. If you are in the North West, and want in on the action, the rest of the tour is listed below.... watch out on his Facebook page for his next tour, we will be....
