Ah, Cbeebies. A land filled with possibilities. Where lions and zebrascancoexist as equals and trainee knights befriend cave-dwelling trolls.

I love that they show women being scientists, fitness instructors, bus drivers, pirate captains, minibeast adventurers, post officers (is that a thing?), nurses, nursery teachers, cooks, stay at home mums… Ahem. Well, you get the picture.
