A while ago someone was after mr tumble something special dvds..found this by accident..amazon have more too cheap. My son loved this!
The award-winning BBC TV series Something Special has been carefully designed for children with learning and communication difficulties. Using Makaton signs and symbols as well as rhymes and songs – alongside Mr Tumble’s unique and hilarious slapstick – it helps encourage communication and develop language in a fun and exciting way.
In these eight new episodes Mr Tumble once again sends Justin and his friends out and about to find three special things. While back in the house, Mr Tumble is up to his usual tricks as he plays with his cousin Cool Tumble, looks after little dog and explores the local village.

Episodes comprise 'Airport', 'Bike Ride', 'By the Sea', 'Hospital', 'Garden Centre', 'Drive' and 'House Boat'.

However, Something Special is designed for children with special educational needs and I have found that Justin's other DVD series 'bee bright' is a much better all-round educational product for young children who do not fall within the 'special needs' bracket. My own children have benefitted greatly from 'Bee Bright' - learning their numbers, colours, shapes, alphabet, etc - and the characters are every bit as charming and popular as Mr Tumble. 'Bee Bright' also has a number of DVDs for children of different ages so you can be sure they are watching something that is best suited for their educational needs. That said, this is a goodbee bright first steps with Justin Fletcher (2-4 years)bee bright first steps with Justin Fletcher (4 DVD set) DVD that we have all enjoyed watching.

Yep.

Is it designed for special needs children or not?

I seen this in morrisons just now, im sure it was cheaper, but maybe it was a different mr tumble dvd

It's great for all kids but especially children with disabilities. My niece has down's syndrome and loves this show. It has helped her communication so much.

originally i am sure it was-my son could sign 'i can sing a rainbow' long before he could sing it!
I think its simple ideas are lovely and educational...Mr Tumble is amazing to watch by all babies and young children. Justin def has a knack with kids. When my son at age 3 went to speech therapy he knew the signs for words, which was really cool. Overall its worth watching-one of the best pograms for kids imo. Then again i hate itng and things like that!

Its a fab programme, my son is severely disabled and the school he attends uses makaton like Mr Tumble. My youngest daughter loves to watch this - I love the fact that she knows some makaton signs to use with her big brother, and also seeing other disabled children on mainstream tv.
