My husband and I wish it were on all day long.My four and a half year old daughter loves it. She catches some of the words and is really happy that she understands.My little boy loves watching Lippy & Messy. For him it’s not English lessons but simply bright colours, catchy songs and simple situations.My little Alex loves Lippy & Messy. She’s simply nuts about it. If she is not in the room and hears the theme tune she arrives like a rocket.The only thing our little girl watches is Lippy & Messy. It’s a huge hit Amanda just sits there hypnotised.
