"Banjo's letters have brought such joy to my two children. They love finding out where he has been and posting letters back via cat post. They've learnt lots about other countries and writing back has helped my daughter feel much more confident about her writing."

Banjo

"Dear Bodil, I've just arrived at the South Pole! (And let me tell you, it doesn’t look much like Buckingham Road around here!) There is snow everywhere and my paws are freezing!"




“Dear Joe, I’m on my way to Brazil to check out Sugarloaf Mountain, which sounds
 absolutely delicious!”




"Dear Neive, What an absolutely brilliant name you have! Sometimes I think the world would be EVEN BETTER if more people were called Neive, don't you agree?!"




“Dear Natasha, What a small world! I know a cat on Allcroft Road called Pogo. Have you met him?”

The Joy of Banjo

Thrilled to bits with it!! When I told my son I had lunch with a cat called Banjo Robinson, he believed me 100% and was so excited when I said he might write him a letter. The excitement of the letter arriving, addressed to my child, looking like the real deal, and being fun and exciting was PERFECT!!

My daughter (5) is absolutely loving it and was thrilled today when we came home to the letter. The first letter where our cat was mentioned by name totally blew her mind!

I love the fact that it gets children away from the screen, helping them with their handwriting and spelling, reading, learning the world, letter-writing skills and her face when she gets post is priceless!!

She has really shown an interest in poems and writing, so much more than she did before, I can only thank you for the great invention of Banjo and all the work you do, my daughter now enjoys writing!

My daughter squealed and squealed, showed everyone and wrote back and drew a picture. When the second letter arrived her older sister wrote back too and her twin is interested and so it has become a whole family thing. We loved the personalised bit - she was so amazed that Banjo know about our cat!

My son loved getting the letters and wrote back the same day. He particularly liked the stickers and we had many conversations about where Banjo Robinson was and what he might be doing for several days after he got a letter.

My son was so eager to write back, he didn't feel it was a chore to be writing (which he usually does!)

My daughter (5) loves her letters and talks about Banjo all the time. She received the 2nd letter today and was jumping around so excited..

Rose is loving the letters!! She refers to Banjo as 'my dear friend'. Her picture of a boat with a troupe of monkeys is hilarious!

He was so interested in what Banjo had to say in his letters, and made the whole family sit around him while he opened the letter and read it out. We loved the little envelope and piece of paper included to write back, and the stickers made it fun too!

My 6 year old loved it - he's usually beyond sceptical but completely believed it - including giving our cat a lecture on how he wasn't to forget to post the letter. I admit I had a sneaky look at what he wrote - first line is "wow, I had no idea cats could write!"

My sons (7 and 5) loved it and both penned a reply immediately. Great way of getting a bit of writing practice in.

Alfie loved his letters and he's not a massive reader, more of a maths guy. Beautifully written. Totally engaged. Just found him writing letters to Banjo and he's supposed to be asleep! He was tripping over his words to tell me where Banjo is going next!
