Has Mike The Knight fever hit your house yet?

Chances are if you have a child in the 2-5 age range then you know who Mike the Knight is already.  We missed it at first not being home during the day much but after hearing friends talk about it I recoreded an episode for Ben to watch.  It only took one viewing to start the obsession.

He wanted to be a Knight (and do it right!) so that Sunday morning I was cast as the role of a dragon (very fitting pre 9 a.m. on a sunday) and started cutting out a cheerios box.

He needed a belt, helmet, sword and shield

We luckily already had a Galahad (Mike’s horse) that used to be my own hobby horse.  And Ben the Knight was born

On the Monday he went off to nursery…I was a bit concerned if their toy gun policy covered cardboard knives

It just shows you that they are just as happy with a cereal box costume as a £20+ bought one, hopefully this continues

The Mike the Knight website has some activities on I discovered today, so we will be printing off some colouring sheets I think and fuel the obsession a bit more.

And as usual the cats had to be in on it too

    Mike isn’t doing it for me – or my son. Hasn’t hooked us. Still living under water with the Octonauts

    My son has been loving knights and jousting since we took him to the Scottish Festival in Estes Park, CO last fall. He loves “Knights Tale” and “Knights of Mayhem”. Glad we now have Mike the Knight–so much more age appropriate. We also have a large stuffed horse he pretends to ride wearing his knight Halloween costume.
