Since moving to London we’ve been acclimating to all things British for kids: cereal, TV, toys, etc. We’ve found it awfully amusing that some of the US and Canadian shows (Super Why, etc) have been switched to British accents, which actually makes sense to me.
One thing we’ve missed is Elmo – my daughter was somewhat addicted. She’s in love with Peppa Pig and Ben and Holly’s little Kingdom now. But there is a character here in the UK that I personally find amusing and my daughter likes as well – the Honey Monster! He’s the mascot for Honey Monster foods which makes a bunch of different cereals including Honey Waffles, which has graced our table on more than one occasion.
The latest ad is an absolute crack up – he feels about Honey Waffles what I feel for wine, chocolate and a good book! Take a look – hilarious!
Another thing we’re slightly addicted to is tea. I was a mediocre tea drinker before moving here but the tea is just in abundance and delicious! The coffee’s off the charts great too. And I'm in love with M&S food court which I've mentioned before.
We’re still exploring and adjusting but there are things that are making England feel like home. These are just a few.
