Easter TV for Kids

Chocolate might be the centre of the upcoming long weekend, but any parent thinking a few slabs of ≥50% is enough to get a full three days peace is kidding themselves! No, it’s going to take a lot more than cocoa solids and candy shells to keep the little ones entertained…


Don’t worry, though, as there’s a ton of top treats to keep everyone from tots to teens tickled pink; animated favourites, all-action heroes, and a whole lot in between! So get this lot on side for the coming days and you’ll have some very happy bunnies!
