This review is from: The Very Best of Postman Pat [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
My children (aged 5,3 and 1)all love Postman Pat videos,audio tapes and books. The Very Best of Postman Pat may not quite be that (there are some very amusing moments in some stories not featured here), but it is certainly a good introduction to the world of Greendale. The stories give a rather picturesque view of rural English life, but are also informative and amusing. They are old fashioned in flavour - do not expect any fast action or visual gimmicks, but rather a minimal tale, catchy music, and a lot of gentle humour. My older children particularly enjoy the idiomatic language and such puns as (in Pat's Windy Day) "Time to BLOW home". Incidentally, my eldest child was recently in hospital and Postman Pat videos were by far and away the most popular choice amongst the young patients there.
