This fun series stars Andy Day interacting with live creatures, engaging in imaginative play, and discovering new things around his home as a way of teaching children about different animals. After introducing the theme of the episode, the charismatic host presents videos clips, including some from some of his other adventure shows, to help young viewers understand what they will be talking about. Activities like playing with Australian sugar gliders and barn owls, making dinosaur feet, and hopping around like kangaroos soon follow. Throughout it all, the host offers explanations about what the featured animals do, and why. It's not as creative or visually dramatic as some of Andy's other shows, but Andy's Secret Hideout offers some creative ways to teach young children about the animals that live around us.
