Lovely in a Winnie-the-Poo sort of a way

This is a series of short stories, rather than one long one; perfect for a stop/start car journeys. It's ideal for younger audiences. If you like Winnie-the-Poo, then you'll love this. Lots of furry little creatures getting into scrapes - but nothing too frightening. Also Bernard Cribbins has a wonderful voice. Could listen to him for hours. Even my 7 yr old (Ben 10, Biker Mice from Mars) was enjoying it!

A trip down Memory lane

I have fond memories of watching the Wombles on TV when I was a child and so downloaded it recently for my two sons.

They both LOVED it and the youngest one listens to these stories over and over! Interestingly I also found them some of the original TV programmes, but these haven't held them nearly as well as the audiobooks!

One of the best audiobooks I've downloaded! Well done
