Story

The shapes must go in the holes of the same shape. Tag put the rectangle in the rectangle hole, Betty puts the triangle in the triangle hole, Happy puts the square in the square hole and Norrie puts the Hexagon in the hexagon hole. Roly doesn’t know where to put the star shape, in the star hole or the semi-circle hole. Just then they spot that it’s going to rain. Duggee get s the washing in as the Squirrels head inside, but Norrie is worried about the animals getting wet.

Betty put the triangle chicken in the triangle chicken house. Norrie puts the rectangle cow in the rectangle barn. Tag puts the square bird in the square birdhouse. Happy puts the disgruntled round goldfish in the round goldfish bowl. They all head inside, then they realise Roly is still outside.

The music gets dramatic as Roly talks to Ladybird. Ladybird suggests he could stay dry in the shape game but Roly doesn’t know where to put him. Things are now full Indiana Jones as Roly makes his choice. It’s a good one, Ladybird says “You chose wisely.” Roly runs for the door, making it through the catflap just in time.
