Our Ringo Does The Narrating!
11 July 2001 | by GrantCAGESee all my reviews

I loved this series when I was a kid and just had to write about it! It's so cute with the characters and the magical music theme and RINGO! If you watch repeats of this classic series you'll find that it hasn't lost it's magic and is perfect for children of all ages to learn about.
