Product Description

Young dinosaur Littlefoot is orphaned and so he sets off with a gang of fellow baby dinosaurs in search of a legendary green valley that offers safety from the plague that is sweeping the world.

From Amazon.co.uk

The Land Before Time

This 1988 animated feature from Don Bluth (An American Tail) focuses on an orphaned young dinosaur, Littlefoot, who has to make his way to the paradise of the Great Valley in order to survive a plague. Along the way, he meets up with some other dinos from different species, and they all bond and travel together. On the way, they have plenty of adventures. Even with elements of suspense, this is a pretty relaxed movie that isn't in a particular hurry to roll out its story. Kids will like the originality of the concept, and the themes of friendship and cooperation are well woven into the fabric of the entertainment, plus the music is great. Bluth's artwork looks good, though--as always--he never seems to quite catch up with the quality of the Disney machine. --Tom Keogh

The Land Before Time 2 - The Great Valley Adventure

Young brontosaurus Littlefoot and his pals venture out of the Great Valley into the Mysterious Beyond and encounter a T-rex and a pair of omnivores who just want to be friendly. (Gulp.) The gang learns how hard it is to be a kid on one's own in a scary place--what with landslides and ferocious "sharptooths." This first sequel to The Land Before Time mostly holds up the visual quality of Don Bluth's original, though the story is narrower and less interesting. Music by the Roches and James Horner. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous! 16 Nov 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This cartoon always manages to bring tears to my eyes whenever I watch it! The sad beginning and cleverly composed music makes it so emotional! The story is well written and the characters are unforgettable. This is the best "Land Before Time" film out of the dozen sequels out there...a definite must-have.

I'm a bit surprised that there is only one single review of this film. At least it is rated with the maximum number of stars: 5. Every lower rating would be - well, let's even say - wrong, because every normal child will want to see this film several times: the animation is as parents like it to be for their children, the tale about little dinosaurs is sweet in its details on the one side, but also exciting on the other, and additionally the children may learn what it means to have friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bluth's Masterpiece 9 May 2009
Format:DVD
Lucas and Bluth had a winner with this movie, I guess that's why it spawned 13 sequels. Though, this one is the original and best.
In my opinion, The Land Before Time is a classic masterpiece, and one of my own childhood favourites. 'Yup, yup, yup!'

5.0 out of 5 stars Stayed in my heart from my childhood years 4 Feb 2007
Format:DVD
I remember watching about 6 land before time movies when i was around the age of 9. They were very addictive/fun to watch and always brightened up my day when watching them. The land before time is one of those movies that makes you absolutely reserved when seeing them and it also shows you the friendship along the way, when watching them. I also enjoyed singing along to the wonderful songs sang by the character dinosaurs.
It's become a special movie to me and when you watch them you will see why! Even though i am older now, probably wouldn't ever have the same feeling as when i watched them in my younger years, but i will always see these as being a childhood memory and will probably like them for the rest of my life (even though they are more childrens movies).
I highly reccomend any parent to buy these for their kids as it will most likely keep them occupied for hours!
The stories are wonderful, will most likely make you eager to see the whole series!
I also find myself crying when seeing these now as some of the series are quite sad.
I still have the videos of these and probably will never get rid of them as theyre just so good! Even though they are set for younger ones.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful film the whole family will enjoy. 18 July 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Both my children and I really enjoyed this film.It has a real heart warming theme. The animation is outstanding, and the soundtrack will leave you singing along for days...!It is a magical tale about a group of young dinosaurs, Little Foot, Cera, Pitrie, Spike and Ducky. During their journey, they encounter incredible adventures and obstacles, and learn unforgettable lessons about life, and what it means to stick together.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best movie ever 30 Jun 2005
By Bubbles
Format:DVD
I am now 36 years of age and I used to live in London, though born elsewhere. I had never seen it before. I first saw The Land Before Time in December 1994, just before my 1st Christmas as a wife. My husband was away on business abroad and I was flicking channels on TV. Came across this movie, which I watched but failed to register its title. It is so moving and like many others, I cried so much watching it. It is also entertaining and I particularly liked Littlefoot's best friend because it reminded me of what best friends are there for. I came across it again the next Christmas and the next. It became a tradition for me ever year until I left England. Now, I want it to continue to be part of who I am. It's a wonderful movie which teaches values, love and friendship. A must buy!

5.0 out of 5 stars A film to always remember 16 Jan 2007
By kat1990
Format:VHS Tape
I remember when i was just a child. I would watch these over and over again! Land before time is a wonderful series of movies, especially great for children, though movie is to suit all ages. It shows you the friendship along the journey between little foot and his friends, i would often sit almost crying when watching them. I stopped watching the land before time movies when i was about 13 and still remember now how fascinated/addicted i was to them. It gave me a lot of happiness, even now i could go and sit through them and most likely enjoy them now that i'm older (because of the all time happiness from the adventures). The story is lovely, cannot even explain what made me think this, though i do say that they have amazing adventures to especially make kids loving them!There are also songs throughout the movie in which i would sing along to.

I highly reccomend any child to watch these movies, although there are little visions of dinosaurs jumping out. But well worth the money and something that will last as a memory to you forever! It is certainly one of the most greatest childhood memories i have had in all my life, waching these.
