A lot of the kids shows we watch tend to be quite fast paced with colours and music and movement. Puffin Rock is a pleasant change to that with a slower, softer pace and a storyline about a family of Puffins. Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids) lends his dreamy voice as narrator for an all round delightful series. Available on Netflix

Spring is in the air! Put a spring in your kids step and ignite their imaginations with this compilation DVD from ABC Kids. With episodes from Play School, Bubble Bath Bay, Timmy Time, Hoopla Doopla, Toby’s Travelling Circus and Thomas & Friends it will have the kids ready to hit the sun and the sand in no time! $9.95

Anything that endears kids to vegetables is a winner in my book and Veggietales in the House are so cute you can help but love them! These veggies see more drama than your average supermarket greens but they always come together for the win. The graphics are pretty cool and the characters are the cutest veggies you will ever see! Available on Netflix

Lovers of bows and dancing everywhere will love the new DVD from the first female Wiggle, Emma. The major complaint about the TV show was its length, and the DVD solves that. It is full of singing, dancing and wiggly fun that will have you moving along with the kids. Emma is so captivating for little audiences and her DVD certainly delivers. $19.95

I love Jason Bateman. Add in Tina Fey, and what you have is actually one of the funniest movies of 2014. This movie didn’t get the box office recognition it deserved. With their fathers passing, four grown siblings return to their hometown, living with their over-sharing mother, their spouses and exes. This is a dysfunctional family at its best. Available on Netflix

Ari Gold is back, not to mention Vinnie Chase, Eric, Drama and Turtle. If you’re a fan of the Entourage TV series, then this is a must see. With a simple and easy to follow storyline, Entourage delivers on almost every level – with plenty of cameos and lots of laughs (mainly at Drama’s expense). $39.95

By now you’re probably already familiar with Arrow a spoilt rich kid whose dad is killed when his boat sinks in thunderous seas. So you do what anyone else would do, become a Vigilante, right? Sounds all too familiar, but surprisingly, Arrow is actually a fresh take on the vigilante story. If you like Batman, Gotham, Dare Devil etc, this is worth a watch. $69.95 (Blu-ray) $59.95 (DVD)

I’m a total latecomer when it comes to Mad Men, but I made up for it with the veracity with which I watched all 7 seasons in one month. Mad Men is a view inside a mid 20th century New York advertising agency and it abounds with fashion, flirtations and more sexism than one could normally handle. Be warned though - season 7 part 2 isn’t yet available on Netflix. Available on Netflix
