10 things we could learn from the kids on Gogglesprogs
It is often said that out of the mouths of babes comes truth and wisdom. This became undeniably apparent when we were gifted Gogglesprogs on Christmas Day of 2015. From the makers of the genius Gogglebox, this programme saw groups of children watching iconic Christmas television and giving us their unfiltered opinions on life, love, politics and everything in between.

Just one of the many profound comments we were lucky enough to hear.
The spin-off show was an overwhelming hit and Channel 4 have answered our prayers in bringing us an entire Gogglesprogs series starting tonight at 8pm.
It’s become clear there is a lot we can learn from these little sprogs. Here’s 10 life lessons we should take home with us.
1. Focus on happy news.
2. Put a bit more thought into your appearance.
