sorry, should have included some background info.

He is a kids TV personality, currently aired on the bbc's childrens channel, Cbeebies, Although he started out on CITV with Dave Benson Phillips, on fun song factory. He cbeebies shows include Tickabilla, Higgeldy house, Something Special, Gigglebiz, and coming soon is a new show called Jollywobbles. He also voiced the characters Doodles and Jake in the Tweenies.

Its is the show "Something Special" that I am most interested in, this is the show in which his character "Mr Tumble" appears.

Originally Posted by wikipedia
Something Special is a children's television programme produced and broadcast by the BBC. The producer is Allan Johnston who worked as a teacher of children with special needs before joining the BBC in 1989. It is designed to teach children signing supported by Makaton gestures, and is specifically aimed at children with delayed learning and communication difficulties. It is aired on CBeebies (both the separate channel and CBeebies on BBC One and BBC Two).

It is presented by Justin Fletcher ("Justin" from Tikkabilla), and features various other characters (also played by Justin) and clips of disabled children. Justin speaks as well as signing, and a spoken narrative is provided over the clips of children.

The characters played by Justin (other than himself) are the Tumble Family: Mr Tumble, Grandad Tumble and Baby Tumble. Other members of the Tumble family to have made recent appearances include two Aunts - Polly and Suki (as in the popular nursery rhyme "Polly Put the Kettle On") and Lord Tumble.

The name of the programme derives from the idea that all children, irrespective of their position on the learning spectrum, are special.


My 3year old Daughter has Global Development Delay and has been learning Makaton for the past 18months, when I say learning, she attended classes. So a chance to meet Justin/Mr Tumble who has done so much to bring her on would be great for her.

He used to freak my little girl out when he was Mr Tumble. Think it was the episode when he was pretending to be a baby in a pram- scared the hell out of her!
