Starring Monica Trapaga (Play School presenter and voice of the introduction song from Bananas In Pyjamas), Monica's Trip To The Moon was nominated for an ARIA award in 1999 for Best Children's Release.
In this fun and imaginative adventure, Monica goes on a voyage into outer space to visit the moon, with her best friends a talking fridge, named Fridge, a talking bin, named Compost Bin, who vaguely resembles Oscar The Grouch from Sesame Street, a talking parrot named McKaw and a teddy bear simply named Ted, who I wonder if he is a distant relative to Big and Little Ted from Play School.
Their little group meets lots of new alien friends and end up in a karaoke competition and sing plenty of catchy and fun songs, which will have you and your little ones up and singing and dancing along, as they do the "Moon Mambo", learn that "The Solar System Is A Wonderful Place" and play "Snakes and Ladders".
There is also a rather scary looking alien with one giant eye, who ends up being very friendly and a great singer too, teaching children not to always judge a book by its cover.
Monica's Trip To The Moon, is one of the best videos in the "Monica" series, as it makes full use of its meagre budget, using brilliant green screen sets, funny puppets and wonderful songs, sung by the award-winning Monica Trapaga herself and is perfect for young children to learn about the solar system, use their imagination and be genuinely entertained!
Monica's Trip To The Moon is rated G and is suitable for everyone.
