If you've got a preschooler at home, chances are you've discovered Mike the Knight. This popular Nick Jr. cartoon, set in the colorful world of Glendragon, celebrates the virtue of doing right.
Mike and his sister, Evie, live with their parents (a king and queen, of course) in a colorful mideval castle, where their adventures involve their pet dragons, Squirt and Sparky, Mike's horse, Gallahad, and Evie's pet frog, Mr. Cuddles. Part of Evie's charm is her ability to cast spells, which sometimes get her into trouble. But regardless of where their journeys lead, the pair always learn a valuable lesson.
This summer, Nick Jr. makes the series available on DVD. The new release, Knight in Training, includes five fun stories plus several bonus features: a game, music video, and the show's theme song.
And we'll be giving away the new Fisher Price play castle, which includes several of the characters and an array of moveable parts. Check out our Facebook page for details.
Finally, no knight can be complete without a sword and shield (two items Mike grabs as he becomes a knight). Kids love make-believe, and these toys will help transport them into Mike's world. • Available at Toys R Us, miketheknight.com or NCircleEntertainment.com
