Daily items reborn as toys

Nigel and his friend Graham, a 5-year-old bear, have great fun playing with toys which they have made from materials that are commonly found around the house, such as magnets, paper plates, drink cans and tape. In each of the 10 shows, Nigel uses his imagination to create a new, colorful plaything that other 4 and 5 years olds can make just as easily at home or at school.
