3rd and Bird: A Very Squooky Christmas! will release on 9 November. This Christmas release sees friends find themselves in fun-filled adventures, from learning to ice-skate to their first expedition out of the tree to the ground.

The Sarah Jane Adventures: The Complete Second Series will allow viewers to join Sarah Jane and the gang in their quests to save the Earth from unspeakable dangers, including the Sontaran - a regular foe of the doctor himself.

In the Night Garden: What Fun!, meanwhile, will bring together five episodes of the pre-school favourites.

Children can dive back in to some imaginative fun with two new releases from Charlie and Lola, produced by Tiger Aspect. Their eleventh DVD, ‘Everything is different and not the same and other stories‘ showcases Lola learning some valuable lessons. Both Charlie and Lola releases will be available from 12 October.

The LazyTown Christmas Collection contains two festive-themed DVDs. The DVD includes the LazyTown karaoke and has seasonal episodes such as The Snow Monster and LazyTown‘s Surprise Santa.

Meanwhile, Robbie the Reindeer returns in Robbie the Reindeer Trilogy - The Whole Herd. All the three ‘Robbie the Reindeer‘ films are brought together on DVD, along with extras.
