Brilliant!
9 July 2004 | by (England) – See all my reviews

I grew up with this film, along with children's classics like Mary Poppins and The Snowman, very surprised to learn as i grew up that no-one else had even heard of it! I think that this film is great for little kids - no violence or anything and lots of singalong songs (wasn't one of them number 1 in the Uk for a while??) anyway if you have small children definitely consider getting this. If they're like me it'll become one of those that they'll remember as a childhood favourite - in my case, it's one of those ones which you can watch on the sofa when you're off school ill - hmm a 'comfort movie' i'll call it. Watch it!
