Nostalgic for grownups, old fashioned for little ones
on 16 July 2015
I wanted to introduce my grandchildren to Paddington Bear which my own children enjoyed all those years ago. The DVD series was nostalgic for me but rather old fashioned in the eyes of a four year old who couldn't understand why the characters' mouths weren't moving when they spoke. Michael Horden's story telling requires lots of concentration and I did feel we needed to watch it together, which in my opinion is a good thing to do with little ones.
