It's charming!
29 August 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I think this is a charming show. I work in a junior school and many of the children are talking about it so I watched it! It is innocent fun, the girls are pretty, the genie is very appealing and Dad and Uncle Max are always good natured, even when trying to be cross!! The story-lines seem to cover a lot of childhood wishes, to be a dancer or a singer, to play tricks on their teachers, have pets that talk, to be fashion icons or simply to believe in magic. Children need this kind of 'fantasy' fun and I can quite see why so many of them are becoming fans. Obviously it is NOT aimed at adults or critics or whatever, but for goodness sake if you don't like it - watch the news! Let the kids BE kids and enjoy a bit of innocent make-believe fun.
