My 5 year old adores Deadly 60. The craze peaked in February and now has slightly waned. At one point he was writing daily letters to Steve and talking non-stop about Deadly 60. I scoured West London for the Deadly 60 cards up to the point when the newsagent offered me a box for 25 quid and I took the lot. Unlike many programmes for kids, I’m a big fan of Steve Backshall and the Deadly 60 series too. I like the way he celebrates danger. Watching Steve pop out of a bush, shirt half wripped poking around for snakes is truly exhilarating in this often sterile TV world. Steve sends out a passionate and positive message to kids about animals and helps to instil a love and respect for nature.
Here’s the link to the feature I wrote for AOL’s Parentdish. The Allure of Deadly 60.
