Review: PJ Masks Time to be a Hero DVD

Something very exciting is happening for fans of PJ Masks on 30th October – just in time for Halloween! For the first time, you can follow the adventures of Catboy, Owlette and Gekko on DVD and digital download. Autumn may only be 13 months old today, but she’s a fan of PJ Masks already! I think the biggest fan in our household, though, may be my 26 year old husband. He won’t admit it, but he’ll stand in front of the TV watching it for ages. Anyway, I digress. Here’s what we thought…


The packaging has the brightly coloured characters on the front of the sleeve and it’s slightly holographic! This is likely to be Autumn’s new favourite DVD to pick up off of the shelf and study. She’s always throwing all of our DVDs onto the floor, stopping occasionally to carefully look at ones that particularly catch her eye.

The actual DVD case looks much the same as the sleeve, but less holographic. It also contains some stickers! I’m going to save those for when Autumn’s a bit older so that she can properly enjoy them. The case also features pictures of the three main characters, the villains and their strengths and powers.

PJ Masks DVD Review


For those who aren’t aware of PJ Masks already, it’s an animated children’s TV series aimed at young children. I’d say that it would best suit children around a year old to children in Year One.

The stories revolve around the three main characters, 6 year old Connor, Amaya and Greg who are normal school children by day. However, at night when things go amiss in their city they get their pyjamas and magically transform! They become a team of dynamic superheroes called Catboy, Owlette and Gekko!

New PJ Masks Time to be a Hero DVD

The DVD contains 6 adventures:

Speak UP, Gekko!

Greg, aka. Gekko loses his voice to a box. He is very celebratory because earlier in the day he got embarassed reading a poem to his class and choked up the words. Relieved, he realises he won’t have to recite a poem to his class the next day. However, he has to get over his stage fright and retrieve his voice when Romeo tries to steal all of the PJ Masks’ voices for no good.

Catboy & Master Fang’s Sword

Connor explains to Amaya and Greg that Master Fang is the greatest kung fu master and they watch him on TV. Master Fang’s sword gets stolen by Night Ninja and they transform to get it back. However, Connor keeps getting angry and he has to learn to not keep getting angry first, remaining calm like his hero, Master Fang.

Catboy vs. Robo-Cat

The three friends are playing, when Connor goes to retrieve his frisbee and the other two go missing. Romeo has created robo-duplicates of his friends, while they are trapped. He must retrieve their stolen superhero pyjamas so that they can transform and help him to save the day. He learns, however, that you don’t need superpowers to be a hero.

Owlette and the Giving Owl

Amaya takes her prized sculpture of an owl that her aunt gave her to show-and-tell, but it later gets stolen by Luna Girl. Amaya aka. Owlette tries too hard to get it back and needs to learn that it’s better to give than receive, otherwise the three friends could become trapped in Luna Girl‘s HQ forever!

Catboy’s Flying Fiasco

Connor aka. Catboy recieves an amazing flying scooter that is supposedly from his aunt. It turns out to actually be from Luna Girl. After a fiasco including a hot air balloon sabotage thanks to Luna Girl, Gekko ends up with a problem and his two friends need to work out how to save him.

Owlette and the Flash Flip Trip

Connor, Amaya and Gregg are getting ready for story time at school. However, when they enter the room, they find that Romeo has used his newest machine to remove all the stories from books and replace them with pictures of herself. Owlette uses the moves of Flossy Flash, her favourite comic character, to try and save the day.


There is a good combination of adventures on this DVD and Autumn and my husband enjoyed watching it. Whenever she hears the PJ Masks theme tune, Autumn always smiles and dances! We had a leisurely morning today and put it on for her to watch after breakfast.

Owlette on the PJ Masks DVD

It’s brilliant that whatever time of day it is, we can now put PJ Masks on for Autumn to watch. Likewise, if we go to my Nan’s house we can play it for her, as my Nan doesn’t have the channels that PJ Masks are on.

As she’s still so young, it only holds her attention for a certain amount of time. However, as she gets older and understands the plot lines, I’m sure it’ll entertain her for longer. As there are 75 minutes of footage, that means I’ll be able to get a lot of housework done – woohoo! Yes, I’m afraid I do get excited about being able to do housework.

Do you have a PJ Masks fan in your household? You can pre-order the DVD on Amazon here:
