New Competitition: Shaun the Sheep DVD prizes up for grabs!

Calling all Shaun the Sheep fans! The side-splitting Shaun the Sheep: The Farmer’s Llamas is out on DVD this week and we just cannot wait! To celebrate, we’re giving away 3 copies of the brand new DVD and book, and all you need to do to enter is tell us about “really kid friendly” places and attractions you flock to with your family.


After the tremendous success of Shaun The Sheep: The Movie, which took £14m at the box office, Shaun and the team are back for an all new adventure on Mossy Bottom Farm.

The already well-loved characters in the Aardman family, will be joined by a pack of new mischievous llamas: Hector, Fernando and Raul in a comedy Llama Drama.

When the Farmer and Bitzer go to a Country Fair, Shaun tags along intent on causing mischief. Shaun spies an auction where he sees three exotic and very crafty Llamas going under the hammer. Instantly besotted by their fantastic pranks Shaun gets the unwitting Farmer to buy them. Back at Mossy Bottom Farm, Shaun is delighted with his prank and convinces the Flock that the Llamas are just what they need to spice up their lives. At first everything’s great fun, but soon their new Llama room-mates get a bit too comfortable in their new home. When things spiral out of control, Shaun is forced to take action to oust the intruders and save the farm.

Shaun The Sheep: The Farmer’s Llamas is available on DVD now.

The DVD bonus content includes: Meet the Llamas and Mossy Bottom Farm Shorts.

  1. We are lucky enough to have 3 wild animal parks within 20 minute drive, so we love to go there and walk/run around, see animals and play!

  2. It has to be an indoor climbing frame, with its protective cushions as, even at the age of sixty three, I can get in there with my three year old grandson to laugh together. And keep fit at the same time!

  3. My favourite child friendly attractions is Cannon Hall Farm Barnsley. There is lots to do and see for all ages. They do sheep and ferret racing, tractor rides, farm/ice cream shops, you can see the animals feeding, and the cows being milked. They have recently opened a new café and indoor play area and this combined with all the outdoor play areas/adventure playgrounds make it an amazing place to visit

  4. Windmill Animal Farm in Burscough, Ormskirk is brilliant for kids of all ages; lots of activities, animals, somewhere to eat, play areas, just brilliant and it’s very inexpensive too. We go there two or three times a year.

  5. We found a really nice cabin to go to, Sherwood Castle Holiday Forest. It is so nice, it has great rooms, with TV, DVD player and also board games. They have a pool and so many activities, children play areas, bike tracks, archery, tennis, just great. All very affordable.

  6. Luckily for us Legoland Windsor is quite nearby so that’s always a nice treat as they have lots of young rides and kids entertainment on hand. If it’s free fun we’re after we head down to the river to feed the swans. 🙂

  7. PortsmouthHistoric Dockyard. Your ticket is valid for a whole year and you can return as many times as you like, which is good, because you won’t get everything done in one day! Not only is there the Mary Rose Museum and HMS Victory, but there’s museums, tea rooms, Boathouse number 4 with boat building and interactive activities and Actio Stations, with wall climbing, helicopter simulator, obstacle course and rifle practice…all included!

  8. We love Ryton Country Pools, Coombe Abbey, War Memorial Park, Transport Museum, Herbert Art Gallery, Tiny Tims Purple Planet…all in Coventry. Stratford guided town walk is also family friendly although I’d recommend older children for that one.

  9. Fortunately, kids don’t care much for budgets etc and can find fun in a lot of places (on the cheap). Whatever the weather, a trip to the beach is always an adventure. Rock pooling, paddling, drawing in the sand or making sand castles (or just digging), finding shells and sea ‘treasure’. Plus the freshest of fresh air… and all for the price of an ice cream or packet of chips!
    Thanks 🙂

  10. Child friendly places are all around if we look! Places to pay in our area are Woburn Safari Park and Whipsnade which are a great day out and also very educational – if not wanting to pay then local parks and wildlife centres are a great and cheap way of getting out and about – we have Marston Vale Forest centre on our doorstep providing us with miles of walks and wildlife!

  11. Local soft play centres are always popular but the best days out (according to the children) are Legoland, Windsor and the London Aquarium.

  12. A great place near us is High Elms country park – loads of space to explore and play, and a lovely cafe for a cup of tea and a bite to eat afterwards.

  13. I live in Blackpool, so the kids love the beach and the Sandcastle waterpark. And of course the Pleasure Beach if funds permit 🙂

  14. We enjoy going to the local park. There are swings, slide etc. We are looking forward to seeing the flowers in the spring. The little ones loves dogs, and we have made use of the Be Safe Around Dogs publications from Dogs Trust. As we hope to keep us all safe and happy around dogs. His Grandads family are fond of dogs, and did breed dogs in the past. So there is some experience within the family, and we would like to keep a safe and happy relationship with dogs for present and future generations of our family.

  15. we are really lucky to live within walking distance to The National Trust’s Erddig hall, Wrexham. it has extensive grounds and a natural play area for the kids to run around, a child-friendly restaurant and tea room and a tour around the house with activities to keep the kids amused.

  16. The Sealife centre is a great place to go , a safe enviroment to learn and play and watch the penguins and other sea life . It brings the ocean into the childs life and they love it

  17. We have a farm/zoo near us called Folly Farm. It’s been voted the 5th best zoo in the UK, and it’s fab. Load to do inside as well as outside.

  18. Theres a great local place in Crawley called Tilgate Park where you can pet the animals, we love to take my grandson there. We also love to take him to soft play, he has so much fun!

  19. Our little girl likes going to local indoor skate park where she can go on her stunt scooter with her cousin.

  20. My favourite is Crealy Adventure Park because there are activities indoors and out so whatever the weather there is something to do, and so much variety there is something to appeal to everyone 🙂

  21. we head to Cramond Beach in Edinburgh and walk over to the island when the tide is out, it’s always an adventure to the kids, exploring the island, we pretend we discovered it, then rushing back over before the tide catches us x

  22. We love Conkers, another great family indoor and outdoor activity park in the midlands. With a little train (that we seem to ride on 3 or 4 times every time we visit), obstacle courses, mazes,indoor and outdoor theatres, play areas, discovery exhibitions for all ages and a very welcome’s definitely a full days worth of a visit

  23. Slimbridge Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust is our favourite place – the kids love to feed the ducks, splash about in welly land and have fun on the adventure playground. They can also do can canoeing, pond skimming and treasure trails (usually during half term).

  24. we love Drusillas zoo, its not far from us and there is so much for the kids, it takes us all day to get round and do everything there

  25. My family love visiting the family friendly farm at our local park. Chances to see animals up close.

  26. My kids love going to Cholderton farm, we go once a month. It’s fab there is lots of animals to see and plenty of play areas. They also do animal handling and pig racing. Fab day out

  27. Local park – a lake for pirates, a hill for climbing, trees to hide in and an ice cream hut for when it all gets too much!

  28. Little farms with petting zoos are brilliant, there’s one quite close to us which name has escaped my mind but they also do other little outdoor activities like mini golf x

  29. We think the National Railway Museum in York is really kid friendly…lots of things to see and do and a lovely cafe I the middle (with yummy cakes for both kids and parents)

  30. My parents did it with me from the age of a baby and it’s something I’ve loved to carry on with the kids around me and that’s going to visit our local cat and dog rescue centre of a weekend. It’s generally free to get in(leave a donation)the ppl and animals are always glad to see you and it teaches important lessons about how not to care for a pet&regard can happen,how to give comfort and love to something else and have to interact in their level and also u don’t get to take them all home with u no matter how much u think you think u love them so I think it teaches selflessness and that can be a part of a bigger, better picture. I loved doing this when young and have found most kids really gained fun and other important experiences from it too Dxx

  31. we love chessington world of adventures the zoo for learning the rides for fun and soft play for mum n dad to have a coffee whilst the kids burn the last of their energy

  32. We love walking along the Avon canel, Our local park that does great things for all families, Facepainting, Bird box making and farm animals xx

  33. There is a farm called odds farm which s brilliant, lots of animals and a lovely play area, a great family day out.
