5.0 out of 5 stars A Very Charming DVD 21 May 2012
By Thomas
Verified Purchase
'Juniper Junction', a DVD that both children and adults will love for many years. The episode is set around early 20th century (1914) and as the modern world is continuing to grow, Juniper Junction is still working. This little short shows off perfect model making a brilliant stop-motion animation and wonderfully made music along with brilliant Gauge 1 vintage model trains. It adds wonderful humor and certainly adds a great piece of nostalgia. It really reminded me about the golden age of 'Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends'. So if you're fan of gauge 1 models, stop animation or animation all together? I recommend buying this DVD. I do they make more after this, this a brilliant short.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beutiful work of art and craftsmanship 7 Oct 2011
By Gavin D
Read this please...

Sometimes after a film ends you'll be left with the certain knowledge you've just watch something historic. Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho & Rear Window, Platoon, Forest Gump, Shawshank Redemption. Sometimes it something so funny you know that phases from it will be known for generations... "He's not the messiah, he's a very naughty boy!". Other times it's something so beautiful in some way that you'll find tears running down you face. For me only 4 films have done this; 1) The Green Mile 2) The Notebook 3) Ivor the Engine; The First Story.

The 4th and most recent is Juniper Junction.

Juniper Junction is a work of art. Created by hand using antique trains and hand made scenery, with music you'll want to immerse yourself in. The films pace is noticeably slow, but slow like sitting on a bench and watching the sun set over a rolling vista. Slow like a summer morning curled up in bed. Slow like your first dance. And every bit as beautiful.

Some parts will make you smile, like the antique trains rolling past, others will make you grin, like the Owl and the Signal (you'll have to watch to find out...), and others will have you falling of you chair in hysterics.

All in all, this is one of those films I'll treasure for a long time, and I feel privileged to have seen it.
I heartily encourage you to at least visit the website - just Google Juniper Junction - and view the previews. You'll thank me for it.

My congratulations to Peter and Paul for all their hard work!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for all Postgate fans 8 April 2013
Anyone who grew up with Oliver Postgate's creations will instantly recognise the love and affection which has gone into the make of Juniper Junction. It is a great introduction to TV for kids, it is slow and gentle without any condescension. My one caveat about providing a completely positive review is that my little one is now a little obsessed with model trains and I'm not sure I'm wholly comfortable with that:)

5.0 out of 5 stars A hit with the grandchildren and me too! 1 Nov 2011
My grandchildren aged 2yrs and 4yrs saw this video before me. They keep asking me to play it for them when I am on granny duty, they wanted me to see the "funny owl who falls off his perch" and the "man who gets cream all over his face from his bun!". Of course the really big attraction is the trains - Alfie is totally mesmerised by them and to him they are the real thing. Lolo just loves the voices and the story. I really recommend this fabulously made, wonderful video which kept my attention too. The small people and the lovely costumes are perfect and the trains are just amazing - move over Thomas this is simply better! The owl had us all laughing, the whole thing was just charming and I can leave them watching it knowing that they will be entertained for 40 minutes, over and over again. Thanks and more please.
