A hark back to my childhood,
This review is from: The Magic Of The Faraway Tree [DVD] (DVD)
I loved all of Enid Blyton's books as a child.
Now as a mother myself I have loved them again as I have reread them to my children.
I now live in the USA and Enid Blyton is unheard of so family send me some and Amazon fills in the blanks.
This Christmas my Mum brought this DVD and the Wishing Chair one too. We have to have a multi region player to watch these but the chance to relive my childhood makes it worth while. In the days of Rugrats, The Simpsons et al it is refreshing to see real stories that still engage children with the magic that is lacking in real life.
Some aspects of the stories are a little different from the book but only to adults who remember them!LOL So in review I would recommend this DVD to anyone with children under 8, my 7 1/2 year old son still enjoyed this as he can read the books on his own now and the DVD brought the characters in his imagination to life.
So for good old fashioned stories which you can safely let children watch alone you can't go far wrong with this purchase.
