Meet Henry Hugglemonster

Disney Junior’s brand new original 3D animation for preschoolers “Henry Hugglemonster”, will premiere on the channel next week on 8th February. The series follows the adventures of fun-loving, five-year-old Henry Hugglemonster, the middle child in a happy, close-knit monster family – The Hugglemonsters of Roarsville.

The series was developed from children’s book “I’m a Happy Hugglewug” by Children’s Laureate award-winner, Niamh Sharkey, published by Walker Books. We were lucky enough to meet Niamh Sharkey last week and have a personal reading and art masterclass with her and a couple of other lovely bloggers.

My toddler absolutely adores “Henry Monster” as he calls him and we’ve been watching the preview copies of the DVD constantly since we were sent them. We were also given a copy of “I’m a Happy Hugglewug”  and have been enjoying reading it and looking at the lovely illustrations.

Henry Hugglemonster is a preschoolers’ ‘guide to life’ monster-style. Each eleven minute episode transports preschoolers through the ups and downs of Henry’s life as part of a loving, bustling monster family. Enthusiastic Henry talks directly to viewers, sharing his thoughts and feelings as well as the lessons he learns – from saving the monster kids’ Halloween piñata to helping his sister Summer realise that her voice is lovely just the way it is!
