Milkshake Music Box

Monday 22nd December at 6:50am on five

Concluding on Five this fortnight is the musical show for preschoolers from the popular Milkshake! team. Presented by Milkshake! regulars Jen Pringle and Derek Moran, the series is designed to breathe new life into the nation’s best-loved nursery rhymes and songs.

Each weekday morning, the hosts dance and sing their way through a classic song, accompanied by original music and colourful animation. Once Jen and Derek have performed the song once, they sing it again with a group of children – encouraging kids watching at home to join in the fun!

On Monday, Jen and Derek go looby loo and looby light all on a Saturday night!

On Tuesday, the pair join forces with a third merry old soul in ‘Old King Cole’.

Wednesday’s instalment, ‘Mary Had a Little Lamb’, sees the Milkshake! presenters being tailed by a fleecy baby sheep.

In Thursday’s show, ‘Pop Goes the Weasel’, Jen and Derek weigh out half a pound of tuppenny rice and an equal measure of treacle.

And in the final episode on Friday, ‘Incy Wincy Spider’, a spider’s journey up a water spout is threatened by a sudden downpour. Can Jen and Derek make the sun come out again?
