Our furry Funster friends Fluffy and Flossie are helping in their own special way, Fairy Fran has some tasty treats to share and everyone’s favourite cheeky dog, Bonzo is making mischief too. But where are those magic keys? Will they manage to fix the malfunctioning machine? And will Bonzo throw a spanner in the works?

Packed with singalong favourites like “Bobby B.I.N.G.O.”, “Hokey Cokey” and “I Saw Three Ships”, as well as brand new songs, THE FUNTASTIC FACTORY is family fun not to be missed. Who knows, you might even get to help on stage!
