What a great surprise. The whole family loved it!!!
31 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I bought to my children but after the start John and I ended up watching the movie with the kids. Fun, music and great, great educational content not easy to find nowadays. Lots of details and great backgrounds are making the kids watch it again and again... The Happy Cricket brings principles, messages and life examples for freedom, friends and environment protection in an easy way for the kids without compromising the fun. After a couple of years living in South America, we experimented more fun with the Spanish and Portuguese languages/sub-titles (made for hear impaired children - what a care!). We also found the movie web site interesting and the kids are having good fun with the games and downloads.
