Angelina - a sweet video for sweet little girls,
By A Customer
This review is from: Angelina Ballerina: Friends Forever [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Angelina Ballerina - Friends Forever is a delightful video for girls aged around 3 - 7 years. Aimed at the sort of little girl who prefers to wear pink, it is perfect if your child likes to wear a tutu and fairy wings.
It is sweet but not sickly which is always a bonus for the adults who have to watch it too. The video contains four separate stories each of which very gently deals with a familiar dilemna (argument with best friend etc.) The focus is on the characters and story and it manages to subtly convey a moral while avoiding the heavy-handed politically-correct moralizing of some other children's videos. The animation is delightful and in the style of delicate watercoloured drawings which keep the essence of the book illustrations. Quality voice overs include Judi Dench. There are also a couple of live film sequences of little ones starting ballet classes which will be a hit with any child starting ballet themselves.
