Essex Baby Review

Preschoolers of all ages will be familiar with the popular children’s programme Bing, but how does the DVD version compare with the TV show? Our reviewer gives their opinion on Bing: Swing and Other Episodes.


Meet Bing, his carer Flop (voiced by Mark Rylance) and all their friends in this ground-breaking CBeebies television series, based on books by Ted Dewan. Aimed at young children and the grown-ups in their lives, and now available for the first time on DVD, this much-loved series celebrates the noisy, joyful messy reality of being a pre-schooler.

Reviewer’s Opinion

Our son loves Bing so we couldn’t wait to sit down together and watch this DVD. One of his favourite episodes is ‘Bake’ which is listed as being one of the episodes on the case, however, on playing the DVD the entire way through, we found that this episode is not actually on the disc. He still enjoyed watching the DVD the whole way though and other than the misprint on the case we are very pleased with it.

Essex Baby Rating

A great DVD for all Bing fans, the only downside being that the episodes stated on the DVD case are not on the DVD hence Essex Baby rates this movie 4 out of 5.
