Roaring good fun,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Raa Raa the Noisy Lion - Welcome to the Jingly Jangly Jungle (includes Raa Raa Figure) [DVD] (DVD)
Our 3 year old is currently mad on Raa Raa so we were keen that finally a DVD was coming out.
Eight episodes only at ten minutes each is very stingey. The BBC have ramped up the value by adding a Raa Raa figurine. I'd much rather have just had a regular DVD in a proper case. The packaging here makes you feel you're getting a luxurious box set instead of a large cardboard box with a slim card holding the DVD and rattling around the box which is only the size it is to accommodate the Raa Raa toy. (Presumably cunningly included to encourage parents to fork out on the other quite pricey toys and playsets it can fit with.)
With only 8 episodes it's lucky if you find all your little one's favourites on it. There are around 18 other episodes and why they couldn't all be included - well, of course they could but the makers have decided they'll make more money this way - to avoid disappointment is stil a shame. Our lad can't stand Topsy's Musical Stones so I've never watched it, but we've all watched the rest of the episodes on the DVD at least ten times each (it feels).
It's a cute fun series for the very young, and it does have a lot of good messages about playing together, sharing and being considerate and generous. I just wish the good messages had permeated the makers of this quite ungenerous DVD.
