Fed up with your mum always telling you what to do? No problem - just nip down to The Mummy Shop and swap her for another, more agreeable version! There are plenty on offer - and any one of them will surely be an improvement on the current grumpy incumbent. Jim and Jody try out several mums, but somehow none of them is quite up to the job. One specimen is very keen on holidays but doesn't know what to do when Jim falls down and hurts himself, another adores sweets and Jim and Jody are thrilled until they all eat themselves sick; another seemingly sweet-looking candidate turns out to be a mean, toy-hating bully. Well, there is nothing for it - Jim and Jody rush back to The Mummy Shop having realised that there is no one quite like your very own mum.
