Say Hello to Mr Whiskers


Mr Whiskers is the creation of Franciscus Henri, the Australian-based children’s musician and entertainer. Mr Whiskers and his dog Smiggy travel the world in a caravan pulled by a tricycle. When Mister Whiskers and Smiggy come to town flowers wave, cats and dogs dance together and all the children sing…’HELLO MISTER WHISKERS!’.

Hello Mr Whiskers is the first musical offering of Henri’s captivating character and there’s plenty more once your kids fall in love with the fun musical and dance songs. Hooray for Mr Whiskers! Follows on from Henri’s first CD and then there’s Mr Whisker’s Monkey Business, which has songs all about animals. My Favourite Nursery Rhymes presents traditional English Nursery Rhymes sung by Mister Whiskers and is perfect for the early years when children are developing an ear for song. More importantly, it provides the opportunity to develop rhythm and language through simple and repeated lyrics. This CD has gone gold and is still in demand many years after its original recording in 1993.

Educational Esteem also has the Mr Whiskers Collection DVD that features Hello Mr Whiskers and My Favourite Nursery Rhymes. The DVD brings Mr Whiskers and Smiggy to life on screen for your kids to enjoy.
